Dude..that's great news for you. Someone over there is not liking us people in VA . Nothing says Fall like a nice Amtrak ride up north. Can't wait to read about your car and see the pics!

Mine is the same status as yours. Being transported to port of exit. It's been 3 days since 1-800 saying that. Hope it will make to the first available ship. Dealer said it's gonna be 7 weeks and I dont even see it arriving before 8 week. I hate when some lies to me.

If you're lucky, you might catch the Figaro which departs on 10/7 and arrives at Port Hueneme on 10/31. If not, the next WW carrier, Topeka, departs on 10/20 and arrives on 11/14. You might also be put on a different carrier line other than WW - (more difficult to confirm and track than WW). After arriving at Hueneme, it could take another 5-7 days before your dealer in SF gets it and then another day or two for the dealer to do the final prep checks.

When you call your dealer, either the Sales Manager or your CA can run a Vehicle Inquiry report. This report is the most accurate and up to date way to follow your Bimmers progress. It will show the VIN , and what stage of production its in. Now for you, it will show which ship its on, when it leave Germany, and when it is due in California at PH. Once its on the Ship , you can track it across the Atlantic Oceanc through the Panama Canal , and up the Mexican Coast on Marinetraffic web site. I hope this helps We get ours very very very very very SOON !!!!!

BMW and minority usually can't be used together in NoVa, but I agree. I saw one on 606 behind Dulles a couple of days ago and another one on 66 about a week ago.

Called 1800# today, seems I missed the boat Figaro 10/07. Hopefully I wouldn't miss TOPEKA on 10/20.

There's still a chance. 800 number and site are slow to update. I'm on the Queen Sapphire which left on 10/3 from Germany but the number and site didn't reflect the departure until the 6th.

My car just finished at production line on 10/05, I highly doubt that my car will be on the 10/08 boat. lol 10/20 is acceptable to me.
