How to track assembly/delivery?
 
Have ordered 2011 550xi last week - so now the fun part - waiting..

Is there are a way for Canadians to track the progress?

Yes you can track your car, the number I called is 1-800-567-2691 for BMW Canada. They can tell you what stage your car is currently at and they track it right till it gets to the port of Bremerhaven. After that you can log on to the shipping website and enter the last 7 of your VIN (you will have it by then) and find out what ship your car will be loaded on and when it is scheduled to arrive in Canada. The website for the ship tracking is:

I received my 550xi one week ago today.

Congratulations!
ok, thank you for the info.
Currently I have 7digit production number only..

BTW, when have you ordered your car?
And what are the steps - did they contact you to confirm options/colors/etc, or by default they only contact when the car is in the dealership?

It took about nine weeks from order placement to delivery. You can phone BMW Canada with the production number I believe, just give it a try. Your dealership will get the VIN once it is assigned, just ask them to call you when that happens.

I picked up my 2011 335D 2 weeks ago, ordered Feb 28th 2011. It was built the week of April 13th, left factory April 20th, received at Bremerhaven port April 26th, loaded on ship [Fidelio] April 29th, Fidelio left the same for Belgium, Belgium to Southampton England on May 1st, left England May 2nd, 8 days later May 10th docked Halifax, car moved CN auto port. Train arrived Toronto auto port May 17th, it arrived at parkview bmw May 19th, they scheduled my pickup May 21st just before the long weekend.

Once you have the vin # you get ship name and itenerary from shipping companies website. Once you have the ship name that will be or is carrying your car go to http://www.marinetraffic.com to see minute by minute movement of the ship carrying your car. Once the ship is out in Atlantic you go to http://www.sailwx.info as marinetraffic can only track vessels that are closer to the ports. Chances are the ship name will be Fidelio I think there's one more ship that shipping is using for east coast delieveries. Good luck.....

DZLMAN, thanks for the detail info - yes, it's quite a long way to wait..
Almost 3 months...

Does anyone know if I need to login or create an account to access the site? http://www.2wglobal.com/www/WEP/index.jsp
Both chrome and safari do not seem to work on the track and trace link..
I ordered my z4 at the end of may 2011 and am getting anxious as the dealer keep pushing back on the delivery day...

I know this answer is coming a bit too late for ya, but hopefully will help others.

- no you don't need to create an account
- to make this work in safari and chrome, you need to disable the pop up blocker on your browser (i had the same issue)
