The most up to date information (besides calling your Dealer) is via the status line 1-800-831-1117. You'll need your production order number. i suggest entering the production number as well as the menu options on your keypad instead of speaking them.
You can also set up an account on bmwusa.com and track the build there but the information lags behind by a day or two.

The number is incorrect
Should read 1-800-831-1117

I've had the same thing happen. Typically it's a problem with the website. It appears to be working today. If not, sometimes using a different browser allowed me to get in.

Thanks for the info on using the toll-free number to check order status. I was using the website, but not getting much in the way of information. I just used the the phone number and discovered that my 2014 550i MSport in built and in the paint shop. Completion date is 9/5/13, today! Excitement level is now ramped up considerably. Need another Red Bull.

Glad it helped. That paint shop status is a couple of days old, but the completion date should be accurate. From this point it will take a day or two to get loaded on the train, then 2-3 days to the Bremerhaven port, then several days to get loaded on a ship. Once it's assigned to a ship, your Dealer can give you the ship name and if you want to track the ship, marinetraffic.com will allow you to track it.

Cut/pasted methods to check on status of car:

The most up to date information (besides calling your Dealer) is via the status line 1-800-831-1117. You'll need your production order number. Enter the production number as well as the menu options on your keypad instead of speaking to them. Select Option 2.

You can also set up an account on bmwusa.com and track the build there but the information lags behind by a day or two. Click the tab on top "My BMW" and set up an account. Then click the tab on the side for "Track My BMW". Then click "Track".

Online way to check through the WW shipping company:

http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/

Plug in the last 7 digits of your Vin# in Cargo ID after selecting All Users under Track & Trace.

Other shipping companies- will work if vessel is within 40 nautical miles from land:
Www.marinetraffic.com

If vessel is at sea:
Www.fleetmon.com

In case it hasn't been mentioned, www.marinetraffic.com will allow you to track your ship. Just enter the vessel name. The tracking on works if the ship is within 40 nautical miles from land.
If your port publishes a schedule you can find an ETA on the port website.
Also, the W2global site mentioned above is only for the Wallenius shipping company, so if your car is on a ship from another line you won't find your VIN on the track and trace. Again, your Dealer can send you a VIN inquiry that displays the ship name.

Excellent!

Now the only thing missing for tracking purposes is our own GPS tracker. After one hands the car dealer a deposit they give the buyer a tracking device. After the car production is complete the device is turned on.
