Hi all. I am new to this group and soon to be a new BMW. I ordered my F80 m3 in April and it's on a boat on its way now.. I can't wait to drive my new M3 for the first time and really enjoy reading all the reviews and opinions on here..

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your thread to the F80 M3 forum. The wait must be killing you! Post your build specs to help pass the time.

Hi NewF80,

I am also new the this forum, and I am also waiting for my M4 which is also on a boat right now towards NA. Maybe our cars are sitting next to each other. My car is on the vessel DON JUAN heading to Canada for Aug 18. My car actually finished prod July 9 and took them a whole month to ship it out. So not impressed.

Anyway, I am practicing my shadow gear shifting in prep for my M4!! wooohooo

Tell me about it... it drives you nuts. I am sitting in front of my computer every day click on refresh to watch my boat move every 10 minutes...

I am hoping to get the car in time for the long weekend so I can quickly burn through the run-in period.

Hope yours get in soon!!

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a free Satellite AIS tracking for tracking shipment of your car? I use http://www.marinetraffic.com/ but they charge for Satellite AIS and they only provide free Terrestrial AIS tracking. So, my car is somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic and I cannot track it

Any help be appreciated

Yeah, I use the same site. But I also checked a number of other sites (Vesselfinder.com, vesseltracker.com, etc) but they all require accounts and payments to track satellite AIS, which is what you need while your ship crosses the ocean.

My boat's last location was Aug 11 ... I guess I won't see any update until it gets closer to NA shore, which should be sometime this weekend.

So hard to wait for your car this way.

Anyway, to cheer myself up, I keep staring at the spec and pictures.

let me share my build here as well

Sakhir Orange / Silverstone
Executive Package (Active LED, Surround camera, full merino)
Premium Package (rear cam, park distance, HuD, Satellite Radio)
Manual Transmission

In Canada, quite a few items comes standard (i.e. Harman/Kardon, USB, etc - but not connectDrive), so I might have missed couple things...
Very sad to say though, I did not get the M suspension. My only regret...

Cheers all.

Awesome! Mine is at the docs waiting to be loaded on a ****! Man, I hope that doesn't take weeks like some I've read. How fast was yours to load from the port? I bet you're excited!

I went little excited and took every option except carbon brakes. Alpine white with black leather and carbon trim on inside. Already ordered and received front diffusers and lip from IND.. Can't wait to get car and put on.

My car, sat at the docks for close to 4 weeks before they shipped it.

It is now docked at Halifax and hopefully unloaded. I will know if my car was unloaded and discharge today... sometime tomorrow, as WWL's tracking is usually a day late.

Anyway, hope I get it in time for the long weekend!!

Cheers.

By the way, does anyone know how long it may take (including wait time) to truck/rail from halifax to Toronto? I have heard 5 days all the way up to sitting there for 3 weeks waiting...

Welcome! Can't wait to see your car. Do you have your VIN? I can show you how to track it once it's on the truck too.
