My Seven left Bremerhaven on 9/11/13 on the Turandot, which is now in port in Belgium. If you want to find out if your Five is on that ship, read my thread in the F01 Forum. There are posts that explain how to use your VIN number to find out. Good Luck!

Nice configuration. Don't you wish that when you add over $10k in options, BMW would give you something for free? Coffee mug, hat, or maybe a spare tire would be cool.

My 5er is waiting with yours at port too. We'll be on different ships I'd imagine since my ship will be coming into a port in New Jersey.

Nice choices on options!

Mine is also coming to a port in NJ. Yours is probably on the Turandot as well.

Yes it is.

Just checked here: http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/

For those that want to check also, just plug in the last 7 digits of your Vin# in Cargo ID after selecting All Users under Track & Trace.

I forgot about that. It's still in the BMW bag. Thanks for the reminder!
I do use the commuter mug and gave the surround sound CD a spin (once is enough)

I'm surprised it made it on so quickly, but my 535i xDrive made it on the Turandot too.

The Turandot is currently in port in Belgium, then to the UK, and then directly to the Port of NY/NJ. It will arrive on 9/25/13. Then our cars will probably need at least a week for customs and prep center.

I'm planning on a 10 day wait after it arrives at port, so will be pleased if I pick up my new ride sooner.

Use your VIN to see if you are on the Turandot.

Got a shipment from Nagoya Japan to Zeebrugee Jan 2013. Clearly not my car. Must still be at the port. MY CA said until it is loaded the computer is not updated.

The Turandot has left Belgium and is steaming toward Southampton. One more stop and then the Turandot is heading directly to the Port of NY/NJ.

Interesting history for the name "Turandot." Our vessel is named after an opera in three acts by Giacomo Puccini, completed by Franco Alfano.

That said, I have a question? My build states "BMW Individual wood inlay steering wheel," however, I did not order this particular item? In addition, my build also states that I have the "M steering wheel? I prefer the M steering wheel and I was under the impression that the two were mutually exclusive? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

The BMW website does not always correctly list the options/packages for your car. Ask your CA to email you a copy of your order.
