Exclamation Anyone waiting at the port for a ship to arrive??

Car finished production 7/18/13 and has been sitting ever since. Is anyone else in this same position waiting for a ship? Mine is a 2014 however so not sure if they needed to ship the 2013's out first or is this just W&W schedule? I see next 7/29 the Talisman is leaving and the Integrity leaving 7/31. I would imagine I get on one of those...i hope so.

I don't think it waits at dock for more than a few days. Find out what ship it's supposed to go on to and then track the ship

I've tried and nothing shows up at WW if I put in my VIN# in Cargo ID. Sounds like the ship isn't there?? Nor on a ship? ANy other thoughts?

I had a car completed 7/2/2013. It got on a ship that departed Bremerhaven on 7/10/2013 and arrived in Baltimore yesterday.

Our 2nd car was completed 7/5/2013. It got on a ship that departed 7/16/2013 and is scheduled to arrive in Baltimore on 7/30/2013.

I would guess that your car has an excellent chance to get on those ships you mentioned. My VINs did not show up on the tracking site until they had been loaded onto the ship.

I can beat that story. My 2014 335i completed production on July 10 and finally got to the port at Bremerhaven yesterday (July 23)! I missed a California bound ship by one day, now have to wait for the next ship on July 29.

My F31 was completed on 7/12 and got to Bremerhaven on 7/15, just missing a ship that departed that day. Next possibility seems to be a ship scheduled to leave tomorrow, 7/25, arriving at NY/NJ on 8/8. Please wish me luck. BTW: just heard weather report saying there is an Atlantic storm developing off the coast of Africa, heading toward Bermuda and then possibly the East Coast.

Still waiting

My 2014 328xi finished production on 7/6/213 but then it sat at Bremerhaven for about 2 weeks.

It finally made it onto the Morning Concert which at present is mid Atlantic, headed for the Panama Canal, before heading to Port Hueneme VDC in CA on 8/10. I'm hoping that it will reach my dealer in Bend OR about a week later

The wait is agonizing !!!!
