Yes, it should be at Brunswick as of early am yesterday! Hopefully we will see some updates by Tuesday. Looking at previous threads it almost sounds like customs works over the weekend too - I saw a couple of cases of the ship arriving Saturday and being out if customs by Monday/Tuesday.

Amazing blog by the way. We still haven't made it to China but thinking about it - thinking of combining it with a business trip soon.

I also enjoyed your blog.

On another topic, once you get to sailwx.info, how do I find the ship location currently?

Thanks to both for your kind words re. the blog. It is my wife's passion - well, really food and travel are her passions, and her website is a good outlet to chronicle it all.

neve1064, if you're in Florida, your car would have been discharged from the ship on Saturday. On sailwx.info, though, you can click on Ship Tracker in the top menu. Then search by ship name or call-sign (if you have it).

None of the ship trackers were much good for Integrity after Sep-13th, as the ship seems to have stopped reporting its position.

Latest status shows "delivered from." No mention of Customs yet. I can't remember what this status means. Would be nice if they meant to enter "delivered from US Customs" and their fingers just got tired of typing...

From my experience "Delivered From" means that the car is no longer in WW's hands and has been delievered to BMW/VPC. But usually there are some "Customs release" and Liner release" lines in between.

That's what I saw too when reading about other people's experiences. All the screen shots I found from earlier this year had both the Customs Release and Liner Release statuses prior to Delivered From.

We're only a 4 hour drive from Brunswick, so if it really is through Customs already and there are no VPC delays, we might even see the car this week.

Mine is on a truck on its way to the local dealer as of yesterday! I may even have it today - it is an 8 hour drive but not sure how many stops if any the truck has. Is this a new record with CDG / Paris drop off? Yesterday it was exactly 5 weeks so 35-36 days counting today! It is for a Mercedes but shipping and procedure is the same.

Update

Just a quick update, mine was delivered to the dealer on 9/27. I am picking it up first thing in the morning on Saturday, 9/29. Just under a 6 week wait after I dropped it in Munich on 8/20, not TOO bad.

Excellent! My car cleared VPC on 9/20 and I've confirmed Performance Center re-delivery for 10/16. All in all, great shipping time for our vehicles.

Not sure of how to check on status at this point. I'm glad the Hurricane is bypassing our port. I feel for the people in the NE as they brace for the storm surge.

Someone else had posted that there is a backlog at the VPC.

this is the status for my dad's 5-er. Seems to have cleared customs pretty quickly for an ED car. I'll be picking it up at PCD since I couldn't go for my car.

My CA told me last night that my 535i is at the VPC. Yours might be there as well.

info available from the following site.

https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage

You can enter the BL# if you have it (I got mine from my CA). Or you can enter the VIN in the Cargo ID box (all caps for the letters).

My dad's car should be at VPC now, but will probably have a bit of an extended stay due to some light cosmetic damage. Then off to PCD!
