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

California Highway is operated by KLine and unfortunately they don't track cargo ID with VIN's so it's hard to track online.

The boat however is easier to track and is currently heading back into the English Channel.

Any updates on EPA hold?

Dealer just confirmed I'm on the California Highway as well. Due in Brunswick on 3/31/13.

It does look like a nice ship. Pretty new as well.

Hey edman, Ex-One and Stanw, what does the BMWUSA site show for the status of your vehicle? Mine still shows up as a Z4 sDrive28i and Products Ends. Is anyone showing up correctly?

Shows correct vehicle and color choices, but no pictures. Checked my VIN on www.bmwvin.com and all was correct. Status also shows "in transit"

Mine shows the correct vehicle (x1 xDrive 28i) and color choices but does not show any of the options I chose. Those do appear correctly on bmwvin.com.

The BMWUSA website also just updated a few minutes ago to say that the status is, "En Route to the U.S."

By the way, there is no image of the vehicle on the BMWUSA site when tracking the status. System still doesn't seem that all of the kinks are worked out.

Mine updated to "En Route to U.S.", but I'm still driving a Z4 sDrive 28i, HaHa.

Are you driving with the top down?

I used to really hate the look of the Z4 - the top was too humped. Made the car look like a clown shoe. That styling actually turned me off of BMWs for years.

What is the average wait time from order to delivery? Also do you have to put down a deposit and if so what is typical?

I ordered my MY 14 FEB 22nd but production did not start till early March so my time frame may be a bit over compared to ordering now. Car will be at the dealer on the 14th of April but wont be able to pick it up till the 19th. 52days to get the car to the dealer. Usually you need to put a deposit (fully refundable in my state), i did not have to since i am a repeat buyer from my dealer.

Under weigh!

Our xdrive28i M Sport was loaded onto the good ship Talisman and left Bremerhaven at 2:23 this morning (local time). The Talisman is scheduled to arrive in Baltimore on April 4, then on to Savannah, through the Canal, then ports in Australia and finally to Singapore! She's presently on her way to Zeebrugge, Belgium. Hopefully, our car will be offloaded in Baltimore and then trucked to our dealer in Troy, Michigan.

Incidentally, the car was loaded onto the Talisman on March 26, the day after it arrived in Bremerhaven, but the BMW 1-800 number says that it's still awaiting assignment to a vessel.
