The TOMAR departed. . .

The TOMAR left the dock to start the journey to Port Hueneme. My vehicle was completed July 4th and it was awaiting shipping. I'm hoping it made it on the Tomar. Anybody else have a vehicle on the Tomar?

Mine was completed on July 7th and should have been on the Tomar if it made this shipment as all of my dealers cars come in to CA. Unfortunately I am still "in port awaiting shipping vessel".

Looks like Mignon is the next ship out going through the Panama Canal and it won't go out till July 30th. Ouch.

Yep, I knew about the Mignon but I'm still optimistic my vehicle is on the Tomar. The VIN search comes up negative. My sales adviser says they 'should' know next week if it made it on the Tomar.

Mine was released to the carrier on July 7 and was at the port of exit on July 10 waiting for shipment. Hopefully it got on board since the Tomar didn't arrive until July 12. 800 number still says waiting for a ship, no shipping info available. Jon, if you are reading this, could you shed any light on whether we made it on board, since you also have your "baby" in this group?

Thanks, Jon ...we're like a bunch of anxious expectant fathers!!!

Great news for you. I hope they had enough room for some MY 2013 cars too.

How, where were you able to obtain this info? I'm going to this site and entering my vin but it states no info available: http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/index.jsp

Hope it made it on board or it's an extra longer two weeks!

Well, as sad as it is the most likely reason is that your car is not on the ship, but his is, he probably got confirmation with his VIN.

Are you still at Bremerhaven waiting for a ship? Looks like I'm also in the same boat, so to speak

Yep. It sucks. 2-3 weeks from arrival in port to customer delivery is not uncommon for colorado customers so it looks like September for me.

Thank,

I went to the 2wglobal web site and entered my VIN in the cargo ID box. That reported the car was loaded on the ship.

Prior to that I emailed the location at which I dropped the car off to get confirmation that the car left the depot. I got a response that it was on a truck en route to the port. I then emailed back and requested the car be booked on the Tomar as it was the next ship out. They replied that the car was booked there. As soon as the car arrived at the port, it began to appear on the 2Wglobal site as having arrived. Before that when I searched I got a red message saying there was no information.

Unfortunately I suspect if people are not finding their cars on the site, it means the car has not arrived in port yet. I know how frustrating this wait can be and truly wish you all a very speedy redelivery.

My car has shown at the port awaiting a shipping vessel since July 10th, but unfortunately missed the Tomar.

My 328i is almost the same as yours.
ZMM M-Sport Line
B45 Estiril Blue
LCDF Beige Leather
ZLP Light Package
ZDA Driver Assistance Package
ZDH Dynamic Handling Package
494 Heated Front Seats
ZMT Manual Transmission

Yours will be the first EB II 328i in NoCAL and mine will be the first in SoCAL.
