Just called to check on production. Completion has been pushed back a day from when I called last week. Now looking at July 10th. I guess they are getting overwhelmed with orders!

Mine was pushed back from July 6th completion to July 7th. Is in the paint shop now. More than likely it is not being overwhelmed with production orders but either the regular post-factory-startup glitches or just continued problems with F30 assembly that are slowing things up and preventing them from running at capacity.

Jon, if I were to ask my CA to print that form for me from DealerSpeed.net what is the actual name of the document to ask for? My vehicle was 'born' the same day as yours.

Thanks.

Ahh... The Mignon... I've been seeing the name of that vessel for many years...

Let's just pray that history doesn't repeat what happened to another BMW carrier a few years back, the Wallenius vessel Tricolor... <--- click

I lost a couple of my customers' sold orders on that one...

I hate to say it, but I changed the color to Alpine White after weeks of deliberation... That is Andy Samberg in the video. At 51 years old I wouldn't normally be aware of or listening to this type of music, but I saw this video on SNL and loved it..

Or like the Cougar Ace.

The MIGNON is an older ship. The delay will give the high seas in the eastern Pacific a chance to subside. I hope.

We are in the same 50's bracket !!! We didn't get our first Bimmer till we were 53, after a couple of Acura TL's and TL's , and two Preludes in the 80's. Bimmers forever More Alpine White Will rock down 101 and State Street Will your M3 Be Jealous ??

The MAGNON just popped up on http://www.marinetraffic.com (it has been "out of range"). It is at the Suez canal.

This url will probably be out of date, soon: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/def...0&type_color=7

Right there with you. This moves my delivery back substantially. If the car now gets to my dealer mid September it will have taken about 3 months since I ordered for it to arrive.

The Mignon is scheduled to be in Hueneme on 08/23. Shouldn't take 3 weeks to get to CO, should it? For your sake I hope not.

Mine was at Bremerhaven on 7/9 but not sure if it made it onto the Tomar - if not, it will be an extra two weeks...oh well

I don't know; I thought that was sort of strange myself. I all can think of is maybe the saw all of these posts
and decided to mess with "that Bimmerfest guy"...

AndDown you and 328i4me made it on the boat, but I didn't...

ETA to Oxnard is 8/8 -- leaving plenty of time for delivery before I depart for Bimmerfest East...



Interestingly enough, my other 335i sold order did not either...

Heh. Any way Jon for you to pull my order info if I send you a PM? I believe my car got to the dock the same day as AndDown's car but the online system shows it at port still. You are obviously not my CA, unfortunately my CA is out till later this week.

Was worth a try!

At this point if the vehicle is in transit on the Tomar, will it show up as 'in transit' in the online or phone systems or will those potentially still show it at port? Thanks.

My Vehicle is aboard the Tomar!

I just heard from my CA. They said it _is_ on the Tomar. I then checked on the ship tracking site with my VIN and it was confirmed that it is aboard. Now I can go back to tracking the Tomar's progress.

Aww man, Im sorry Jon. Thats bittersweet. Thanks for giving me the update though and confirming that my car is on the Tomar. I wonder why they didn't let the 335's on?
