I don't know what keeps going on, but the tracking information keeps dropping out. The last info received from the ship was nearly 5 full days ago. The ship was supposed to hit Brunswick Georgia yesterday at 05:00, but this time has come and gone with no update.

I will just continue to be patient

Patience is recommended.

Or bug your CA.

That's what I've done. If I hear anything useful, I'll share.

Thank you! I had not thought to look at the W&WL site since I found out the name of the ship my car was on. Guess this site keeps the most current info and I should reference it. Will I be seeing Customs tracking info on this site, as well?

I spoke to my CA on Friday and was told that my car was at the Newark VDC. I'm not sure if that means that I have cleared customs. WW&L's site indicates customs release but I'm not sure that means I'm in the clear. It looks like I should have the car this coming week.

My car is in the "Delivered From" status. Not really sure what that means, but that just changed this morning.

Thanks- I was just starting to get worried because it's been 11 days since the ship hit the port. The funny thing is that "track and trace" still says the status of the car is "loaded on vessel." I guess sometimes they forget to update these things...

Hopefully, each of you will get your car soon- based on my experience, maybe next week some time.

No but my CA said they should have it tomorrow. She is off today but I'm hoping for re-delivery tomorrow night or Friday! The wait is killing me now.

My car has been at the VDC for three.

You get yours yet, Shakes?

Hey AggieKnight,
I got my car on Friday, January 11th- it was ready on Thursday but I had to wait an additional agonizing day. I will post some pics when I get a chance- it's pretty much been rainy or foggy since I picked the car up.

The last update on the W&WL site was Liner Release. I have not seen an update since, but the MyBMW tracking on BMWUSA.com did update to "Finishing Touches" 3-5 days ago. I read this to mean my car is now in VPC. Is there any way to track the car past this point? I know BMWUSA has a final status of "At Your BMW Dealer" but I am willing to bet that I get a call and go pick my car up before that ever updates. I was hoping to be able to find a way to know when the car enters and leaves VPC, and maybe also a way to track when the car finds its way onto a truck for transport to the dealership.

PS: Congrats on your car, Shakes!

I think that Liner Release is the last status you get from WW&L's website. WW&L lists that for my car, and the VDC has had it since the 8th.

After it goes into customs, the only tool I'm aware of is pestering your CA for status. Adrian has been very patient with me. =)

Congrats, Shakes. Can't wait to see pics from the redelivery. Sounds like the weather has been the same for you as it has for us.

I just got my call. My car is in. I am going to pick her up in an hour!

Dec 3rd was my drop off at the Munich airport. January 14th is the day I will pick it up! That means just about 6 weeks from drop off to pickup!

I will try to snap some pictures of the car tomorrow. I have already swapped out the kidney grills and hardwired my V1 radar detector. I chipped the paint getting the kidney grills out, so you guys be extra careful if you do this...

Anyways, one thing I wanted to note is that the BMWUSA.com site still shows my car as Finishing Touches, yet I have had it in my hands for over 24 hours. Don't rely on it, IMO.
