How long does it take to ship

Anyone know the average time that it takes a ship from Germany to reach the Western Coast of the US? Thanks.

Apparently around 30 days. Unfortunately, a lot of the info on the boards is old, and BMW seems to be using NYK Line for alot of shipping now, which doesn't provide an easy way to track the boat. I've got a 325i coming in on a ship named the Eijin, which is supposed to hit Oxnard around July 6th.

After dropping off my car in Munich on June 5, it was trucked to a port on June 7. It was supposed to be loaded on the Hual Triton on June 14, with an ETA of July 13 at Port Hueneme (per the shipper, EH Harms). Then a week or two more for the VPC and delivery to the dealer.

It took that long to get out of the VPC? When I toured the VPC (now renamed VDC) a year or so ago, they stated that ED cars get top priority for exiting the VPC.

That's just my guesstimate...hopefully ED cars continue to get priority, and no transit damage.
