Mein Auto: 2013 BMW X1
To be honest, I have no idea which boat(s) mine was on. By pure coincidence, the dealer happened to have en route, the exact car I had built and spec'd out on the BMW website, so that really cut down on the wait time; I made the deal on it only last week! From the sounds of things, it SHOULD have arrived at port yesterday (In my case, port = Anchorage, Alaska). If that is true, the dealer says they could have it ready today, but I have not talked to them since last Friday. I hope things are moving along according to that schedule.

I figure at some point, my X1 barged from Germany to Oxnard, CA... which is apparently BMW's distribution hub for the West Coast. It then likely transferred to a northbound barge which may or may not have stopped at who knows how many places along the west coast on its way to Alaska.

If the barge did not make it into port Sunday, then I guess the next arrival is Wednesday. Here's hoping!
