In transit!!

Just confirmed that my X1 is now in transit as of 7/29. Was ordered on 7/9, finished production on 7/18 and released to the Carrier on 7/19. From what I understand it is a 12-day trip to the port in Baltimore. Hopefully be driving it by Aug 16th-ish.

It's more likely to be held at BMW NA until the official release in September, but maybe someone will let it slip by. I hope so for your sake!

confirmation from my salesman that they will be held in US port, but only until August 17. Since mine is a 'sold order' it will be released before the others, and his BMW rep assured him I would have the vehicle before the end of August. Only a few days longer than I was expecting to wait any way.
Model/Configuration is X1 xdrive, Sport Line, Midnight Blue/Coral Red, Cold Weather pkg, Ultimate pkg, Sirus radio.

I'm very close to ordering an X1 myself, but holding out to test drive it before I make a final decision, especially regarding engine choice. Can you tell us which engine you chose and why?

Do you know which ship/shipping line your car is on? I tracked my to a 7/20 completion date. It was confirmed to have reached the port of exit on 7/25, but it has yet to board a vessel as far as we can tell.

Is you CA making an assumption about whether it boarded a ship? Your CA should be able to tell you which ship it is aboard, without that there's no objective evidence that it's crossing the Atlantic yet.

I've been using the BMW tracking toll-free number (800.831.1117) as well as the BMW website to track the status. 800# tells me my vehicle is 'In Transit' and prior to that it said it was at the port waiting for transport. The website was updated a day later to reflect this, and my dealer confirmed also. He sent me the screen shot that they use to track showing it had indeed left port. However, I did not get the name of the ship it is on.

I chose the 2.0 Twin Turbo because the power difference between that and the 6 was not much different. Currently drive an Audi A4 2.0 turbo with 211 hp and that has plenty of power for my needs. With 241 in the BMW, it will certainly be enough for me. Plus the price difference didn't justify the slight bump. Everything I've researched pointed to the 2.0 being the better all-around choice. I chose the Sport Line specifically because I wanted the Coral Red and that was the only way to get it.

Does the online tracking tool show all options selected for your vehicle. Hopefully it's just an abbreviated list because some of the small individual options I selected were not indicated. Is this true with your order as well?

For mine, the online site lists each package I ordered, Sport Line, Cold Weather and Ultimate, then also lists the packages included under the Ultimate (Premium, Driver's Assistance, Technology), along with my color choices for exterior and interior. The only other option I ordered was Satellite Radio, which is also listed.
Not sure where you are in the ordering process, but if I recall, my list did not include all of the packages until a few days into the 'Production Begins' step. It was not showing complete while still under the 'Order Documented' phase.

Thanks for the feedback. My car has been done since 7/20.

When I checked again today all my options were listed! Not sure why some options weren't there yesterday.

Good to hear. Heard from my dealer that mine will be in the Port of Baltimore on 8-11, then hopefully on the truck to Pittsburgh since they are no longer holding at port. Could be driving it by 15th - 16th.

I can't wait to hear what you think of the X1. It is only a couple weeks away. Make sure you post some pictures and give your impressions when you pick it up!

The online tracking is not reliable at all, I have an x6 in production right now and it shows it has three different sets of leather seats. Also a few options started to appear today that were missing yesterday.

That is right. Do not rely on the online tracking to tell you what options are on your car. I drove myself a little crazy when I was getting my 2007 335i and looking at what that said.

My online tracking was accurate as it lists all of my options, which showed up a few day after production.

My X1 has also been waiting at the port of exit since 7/25. And I am also in California, SoCal. From what I've been reading most of the people who already have knowledge of their cars being in transit have a East Coast Port of Entry. I haven't come across anyone on the West Coast who's X1 is in transit. I checked the Wallenius & Wilhelmsen ships (which seems to be the carrier used for BMWs heading to the US) that have left Bremerhaven over the last week and they were all heading for East Coast ports. I did find a few that were continuing on to Port Hueneme (California) via Panama Canal, and I thought that my car might be on one of those, but they left port with no update to my tracking status. There is the Toscana leaving Bremerhaven tonight and only stopping in Baltimore, once it leaves Europe and then heading to Port Hueneme and arriving on 09/01. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is on that ship. If not, the next ship heading to Port Hueneme leaves Bremerhaven on 08/10, the Oberon, which after leaving Europe goes directly to Port Heuneme, arriving on 09/04. And the Tristan, leaving on 08/25, also heading directly to Port Heuneme after Europe with no stops in between, and arriving on 09/19. I think because of the large allocation they will be delivering to the West Coast, it will be a ship with no stops on the East Coast, which could be the Oberon and Tristan, which arrive in Port Hueneme on 09/04 and 09/19.

I'm in the same boat (hah)! My car has been sitting in port since the last week, waiting to board a ship . . hopefully it gets on one of the earlier ships . . I want it now!

My X1 is due in Baltimore on Aug 11. And, being that they are no longer being held at port, I should be driving it within that next week. Not sure how long it takes to get loaded on the transport truck, but it's less than 250 miles from Baltimore to Pittsburgh. I'll give an update on my first impressions and try to get some photos loaded too.

Thanks for that level of detail. I agree with your analysis and hope that our (West Coast) cars will be on the Oberon instead of the Tristan, that would mean only 3 more days till departure. If you haven't been able to track it on the Toscana yet, it's likely not on it. (I believe you meant to say the Tristan is leaving on 8/25 not 10/25.)

If you know which ship your X1 is on, please post. Thanks.

Just got an email from my CA, and my X1 is on the Wallenius & Wilhelmsen Toscana vessel as of 8-7-2012. The car went into production on July 12, and finished around the 20th -22nd, and has been waiting in port since. Here's the tracking information for those who cars are on the same vessel. You can get the vessel's name from your CA. Cheers!
