My new 5 is at the dock waiting for a ride to NY too. I plugged the numbers in the track and trace and got a no record found response. This is my third 5 series and the wait never seems to get easier.....

The Turandot is now in the Atlantic heading west toward NY. My lease is not up until 10/23/13 so I will not be taking advantage of the early arrival.

Mine is still at the port in Germany

Car arrived a week ago and is still waiting for a ride to Brunswick. Hopefully it will get on the Michigan Highway due in Bremerhaven tonight and leaves tomorrow, Sept 18. The vessel is currently moored outside the harbor waiting to enter and dock. The toll free number has no shipping info yet.

Weird.. Mine left Bremerhaven on the 11th as well. I'm going to go hunt for those posts now.

They told me it would arrive in Brunswick, GA on the 30th. I am soooooo sick of my X5 now.

Still at the port waiting

I did check on the K-line vessel Michigan Highway and it is still at the dock. It was suppose to depart today but obviously for what ever reason hasn't. I called to inquire of BMW customer relations and agent said the first of this month has been a little "weird", that I was not the only one waiting a while to get a ride to Brunswick.

My dealer says they don't know until the car is on the vessel and vessel has departed Bremerhaven.

Have you tried to track your VIN on WW's website?

My complete VIN, last seven of the VIN, or using the wildcard character with partial VIN does not bring my vehicle up.

The most up to date information (besides calling your Dealer) is via the status line 1-800-831-1117. You'll need your production order number. Enter the production number as well as the menu options on your keypad instead of speaking to them. Select Option 2.

You can also set up an account on bmwusa.com and track the build there but the information lags behind by a day or two. Click the tab on top "My BMW" and set up an account. Then click the tab on the side for "Track My BMW". Then click "Track".

Online way to check for the Wallenius shipping company:
http://www.2wglobal.com/www/wep/
Plug in the last 7 digits of your Vin# in Cargo ID after selecting All Users under Track & Trace.


All Shipping Companies:
www.marinetraffic.com will allow you to track your ship. Just enter the vessel name. The tracking on works if the ship is within 40 nautical miles from land.

You've confirmed that your vehicle is on a WW ship?

The first of my last 7 characters of my Vin is a capital "D"- all the other 6 characters are numbers. The input is case sensitive and be sure you have the correct numbers.

I just went here: www.marinetraffic.com and it shows the Don Juan in Belguim. You can continue to track there as long as the ship is 40 nautical miles from land.

No, my car is not listed on any W&W ship via the cargo ID search. As I said earlier there are no ships out of Bemerhaven to Brusnwick for another week. That would mean my car sat at the port for over 2 weeks before travel to the US.

That is a relief! Can anyone in Chicago confirm that the one in the Museum of Science & Industry is still under Allied control?
