2014s are shipping!

Using my VIN I found my shipping info at the 2wglobal.com site and it ships on 3/12 and arrives NYC 3/27! Seems there are about 1250 BMWs on this ship.

I plugged in my VIN and got nothing. Then I took off the last 5 digits (The numeric portion) and got 6 hits. So it looks like 2014's are getting on the boat.

It looks like those who have a VIN number starting with 92 in the last 5 digits are getting on board.

Mine is a 93 and nothing yet for it.

mine starts with 46. Searched how you recommended and my car did not make it on the Tiger even thought it was at port before the ship was slated to depart. Looks like ill be on the shipment leaving on the 20th.

I tried my VIN without the last 5 digits, and I got 23 results! None of which are mine My digits start with '92'.

3 are loaded on vessel Tirranna.
2 are received at terminal for vessel Tiger.
12 are received at terminal for vessel Turandot, with Port of Discharge=Halifax.
6 are received at terminal for vessel Turandot, with Port of Discharge=New York.

March 12th is almost over in Europe, so maybe the website is just not updated. Or we're on the next ship!

On that super detailed write-up on how to track your order, remember it stated:
"the tracking system can be lagging behind actual status which is quite common.
NOTE: My car never was displayed on this tracking site although Wallenius Wilhelmsen is listed as the logistics carrier, and agent for my ship, operated by ARC."

Don't worry Desler, you'll likely get on ASIAN KING this week. Wonder if your port of entry will be Charleston or Brunswick? I thought I'd come in at NY, but it's MD instead.

I'm in the same situation as Desler - sitting at Port since the 11th. Perhaps our cars will be sitting next to each other on the Asian King.

I'm taking delivery at Performance Driving School, so perhaps that means Charleston Port of Entry?

Can't wait to see the X1 actually get on the boat.

We originally asked for PCD but since we are getting the USAA discount, we were told we couldn't get both.

Has anyone else been tracking the Asian King going around in circles in the North Sea?

Drunk captain?

Maybe its like a plane circling the airport waiting for its turn to land. "Negative, Maverick, the pattern is full".

I thought that too at first but it's hundreds of miles off the coast. It's also doing very large circles. Who knows. The marine site could be off.

I just got an email from my dealer who told me that my X1 is on the "California Highway." Yes, that is the name of the ship, not the road in California!

That was completely unexpected - I anticipated being on the Asian King!

Sailwx currently shows the ship in the English Channel and having left Bremerhaven on March 16. My dealer says that it is expected to arrive in Charleston on March 31! Crazy!!

I called the BMWUSA number yesterday and the status was still in port awaiting shipping. Just called it and it was updated to say in transit - contact your dealer for more information.

Awesome!

The 800 number also changed to "In Transit" even though the website still says In production. I just left a message for my CA to give me the ship name.

Correction: Sailwx currently shows the ship docked in Southampton and my dealer says the ship is expected to arrive in Charleston on April 1.

It is a beautiful boat: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shi...MMSI=352732000
