Tortugas still at the dock. Looks like the ramp is up though.

Still no status on the WW site for my car.

If your car shows up on the WW Tracking site, please post when your car arrived at the port and when it showed up on the tracking system.

Tortugas just left the dock.

Now we wait and see if our cars made it on.

Good Luck!

Supposed to get in 10/9. From then, I'm told it's 5-7 days until I get to pick it up.

I've got a fully loaded 335 m-sport, Estoril Blue on the Auriga Leader with yours. I ordered it on Aug 2nd. My dealer gave me the same lead time down to Orange County as you got.

No word on if my car made the Tortugas yet.

Can't imagine we were all skunked. Hoping they show up on the WW site by tomorrow sometime.

I have a real good feeling that the Tortugas sailed on and left me at the dock.

I'm turning my attention to the Elektra now.

I'm not giving up hope until I hear of one person's car who IS on the Tortugas.

I like the way you think.

There was a thread from 2012 that discussed how quickly the VIN showed up on the WW site after the ship left. The range was 1 to 3 days.

Keep the faith!

Looks like the Carmen may be anchored outside the Panama Canal on the Atlantic side after trying to get through yesterday. Doh!

My X1 is on that and headed to Tacoma.

Disclaimer: I might be right, I might be wrong. But if I'm wrong, it will be the first time in my life.

Doesn't look good for me but I believe those of you who are hoping for the Tortugas might get your answer right now.

Through some pretty good detective work (If I must say so myself), I believe I found the Bill of Lading number for the BMWs going to Port Hueneme on the Tortugas. No guarantees this is correct but I think it is.

Go to the this website (https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...ckSearchResult) and enter " ACD34001 " into the Bill of Lading field. You will get 1021 VINs which are on the Tortugas headed for Port Hueneme.

There are 10 pages of VINs so sort the report by VIN (Click on the VIN Column header) and do a search ON EACH of the 10 pages (Cntrl F) for the last 7 of your VIN. Best of luck!

My VIN was not on the list, but VINs higher and lower were.

Mine is not on the list either, but I found two VINs which were the same except for the last two number, so it looks like this may be a current manifest.

Note that there are actually 10 pages of VINs on the BOL. Not 5 as I originally posted. Make sure to check all 10 pages.

Actually there are 11 pages, but still no joy.

I also tried to check on a random VIN from the manifest using the tracking page and it found that VIN, so is you can't find your VIN using the tracking page now, your car, most likely, isn't on the Tortugas.

Is the Elektra our next hope?

There were actually 11 pages for me. Looking at it on my iPhone and did the search and it looks like its not on there. So bummed. I guess the next ship is the Elektra?

My VIN wasn't on the BOL either which confirms what a little birdie had told me earlier today that I didn't make it on the Tortugas. My car arrived at the port on Oct. 1st.

Dont give up hope. If you enter this Booking Number "DEBRB1150258" in the Booking Number field, you get 1098 results for the Tortugas. 67 more than the BOL shows.

Perhaps there are multiple BOLs per ship?
