Who will be sharing the Independence II?

My VIN just hit on the Wallenius tracking - my M235i (dropped off in Geneva August 20) will leaving Bremerhaven in the next day or two, aboard the Independence II.

Anyone else have a car on this trip?

Departed the U.K.

Now to Canada...

But only moving at 15.7 knots? That's crazy. Should be at least 238 knots.

Argh, the boat still isn't showing up on the tracking. It's estimated into Halifax at 0530 UST. It should be showing up on the ground-based tracking any time... TORTURE!

Drats...the ship has been moored for two days -- and they've added two days to the sailing schedule and ports of call.

Not sure why it has been stuck in NY for the last few days.
I called BMW and they said my car is scheduled to be delivered to my dealer later this week. Looks like 7 weeks total from dropoff in Nice to NJ dealer. Longest part was the 3+ weeks waiting to get on a ship in Bremerhaven.

I was watching the tracking...and I think they must have had another ship ahead of them that caused a delay. The Indep2 was moored slightly off the docks for two days. Then it docked last night. It should be underway to Georgia later today.

S'pose there's only a limited number of parking spaces for a ship of that size. LOL.

On track here. My M235i has cleared customs (incidentally... no problem here, despite not washing the car prior to drop off), and it's at the VPC, as of this morning.

I imagine I'll be stuck in limbo for a while now, as there are a couple scratches that they have to fix.
