This is getting too complicated, so I'll just wait till the 800 # system hopefully says on the 5th that construction is complete and go from there. I've run out of email addresses to create more accounts.......It should not be this hard!

Probably point of Entry as I am scheduled to pickup my 2014 U.S. Spec X1 in Munich on 12 April (could have been sooner too).

i have been told it should be held at the port of entry until EPA/CAB certification. I have a hard time believing that bmw will sit on so many unsold cars that earn them $000. I think they may get certification earlier than anticipated.

if you call BMW NA you can have them reset your account as apposed to creating new accounts every time.

Thanks, I was switched from BMWNA to Financial Services then back to BMWNA and finally that person was able to fix it. Only worked when I used your detailed explanation! My X1 is currently in the body shop......

I am glad you were able to get you account unlocked. That is the same thing they did to me. Finally form FS back to BMW NA they knew what to do.

How are you tracking the car now? Are you using the production number and calling BMW NA?

Mybmw

Went in using a different email address and was able to add the car that was produced yesterday using the VIN number. Says model unknown but id show it as a vehicle at the bottom of the page. There was nothing there to show tracking. I called Customer Service and they said MY VEHICLE should be showing in the left hand column. It did not show. Once I signed out with the new email, I could not get back into MYBMW just like many days back. Still don't have their website fixed.

I would stay clear of using the site to track. the 800 number is way more accurate. Spoke to them today and my car has been released to the carrier at port of exit!!! now the 30day countdown is on till it gets here!!!

I found a way to go put your VIN in on bmwusa and check status without locking it out (even though the site gives no information about your 2014 vehicle still).

After you add it in, just be sure to delete it before logging off. No problems logging in again after that.

But again, useless since the website doesn't give me any information about my vehicle right now. Just a way to check if the system started working correctly or not.

I asked my dealer to check the status of my car, and he sent me a screenshot from their Vehicle Inquiry system.

Shows my X1 is "155-Assembly Finish/quality check".

Wow, we are a bunch of crazies on here trying to get info on our cars

Awaiting departure from port of exit, I found the vessel Turandot departing March 12 and arriving NY March 27..... Hope this is it! Will try to track via the shipping company later.

Check with your dealer but it may be on the vessel Tiger (IMO #9505039) that departs Germany March 9 and docks at Port Hueneme April 3. You can track it using a thread I found on bmwblog.com that follows a new BMW from order to shipping. Good luck! BMW uses separate routes to east/west coast ports.

Has anyone had there X1 loaded on a ship or are they all still waiting at port of exit. My car has been "at the port of exit waiting for transport vessel" for over 3 days. i am starting to think our cars will be held at the port till bmw announces 2014 on there site.

I believe they are just waiting for a full shipment. No point in sending over a half full boat.

West coast boat departed yesterday and east coast is loading 3/12. Just entered my VIN at http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/index.jsp and found my record at cargo description input. Remember that the shipping company also exports VW, Audi and M/B from Bremerhaven. Google the vessel Turandot to track the ship..BTW it docks in Charleston 4/2!

Google vessel Tiger, that should be the west coast shipment!

Don't see mine on the boat yet. Hoping its Turandot. Otherwise it won't leave until Mar20 on Asian King.

Desler, did you get an estimated delivery date yet?
