F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

yep

been there done that. Even asked the person to hit the side of the computer - she did but all I got was a headache! Tried the links in the shipping site and some of the links don't work and the WW site needs more info than I have.
Keep the faith.

Interesting because right this moment, the website is "ahead" of the genius number.

Alright I am thinking that my Vehicle is on either the Submarine Vehicle Carrier called the Deep Six or maybe the vehicle carrier N.L Port (as in never leaving).

I think I saw a satellite picture of a guy walking on the wharf holding up a remote and pressing the panic button to see which car responded. I guess neither one of ours did!

There’s a carrier scheduled from Bremerhaven to Baltimore leaving June 22 and one leaving for New York onJune 25. That wait is so hard but “patience you must have, my young Padawan”!!!

My 230i was at Bremerhaven for about 2 weeks as she just missed the previous carrier to Oxnard by 1 day.

I'd be a failure as a DR. ...no patience!
I'm still hopeful that there is a ship for my vehicle and for Indufan as well. Don't know how you do it AndDown but you must have the shipping routes down! Thanks for the encouragement. You wouldn't happen to have the names of those ships would you?

1. Go to website: 2wglobal.com
2. In customer tools, click on "Schedules"
3. In Schedules, type in Bremerhaven in the "Add departing ports" and date. Then type in New York in "add arriving ports" and date (I choose a date at least a month later). Then click on "search routes".
4. In the next window, select the most likely date for departure, then place your cursor on the "D"and click to open details of the carrier like ports of call, etc. Yours could possibly be "Morning Cecilie" or the "Tombarra"

Have fun!

I was hoping for the one that left earlier in the week but I see the one that leaves tomorrow (already today there) gets there faster. Interesting, since the other one has already cleared all of its ports in Europe and appears to be non-stop now for Baltimore. Tomorrow's ship must simply be faster and not stop at all. Although the first ship is due in a day early.

Well I tried that site a week or so ago and reached a dead end. But I probably bolloxed it all up . Glad to see you have it under control. I still am tracking Undine tho. I see ships from bremerhaven come and go but so far they only show one destination at a time when you click on the ship.
That site is https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais...53.533/zoom:15
I went to the site you suggested follwed your directions and see that Morning Cecile leave June 24 and arrives in NY July 9 Tombarra leaves July 3 and Ny on July 19.
I don't see any of these in port ships are arriving in Bramerhaven all the time.

Yes and Genius is not helpful. They don't seem to have any info on assigned ships at least that would be something. At port now for 13 days with no relief in sight!

Have you guys checked with your customer advisor at the dealership you placed your order? They often will have more current information regarding the cars whereabouts.

Haha.

"Looks like it was handed over to sales on the 13th and it is between Munich and Bremerhaven most likely on a train these last few days so that's why it looks like it has not moved."

My response to that was:

"Thanks. The BMW Genius line says it has been off the train from Leipzig at Bremerhaven since last Tuesday."

I have these possible chances that my vehicle will be on these ships out of Bremerhaven to NY. Tombarra July 3 , Toledo, July 8, Themis July 15, Don Pasquale July 22. All W&W. All go to Gothenberg then BE Zee then to England then Halifax then NY.
I am thinking that Tombarra is "it" but beginning to think there is no light at the end of the Tunnel. The Genius rep while nice enough to put up with my rantings - knows nothing sees nothing says pleasantries and "I understand" but does nothing to go up the line to get some satisfaction. I told her (them) that I won't be able to put the top down in December in upstate NY!. All of these ports look like huge parking lots staging areas.

How long have your cars been waiting at Bremerhaven? My 230i waited close to 2 weeks before being loaded onto a carrier, but then again, there are not as many carriers coming to the West Coast as to the East Coast.
