I know my car will be on FAUST departing Bremerhaven on 3/30/11 but don't know where to use VIN number to track the car. The WW link on wiki does not work. ?anyone knows:eek:


Any other fester(s) expecting car to board this vessel?

this takes me to "ATT login" a blank webpage:cry:
That is on your end - the WW link provided is correct. Sounds like you are trying to access your wireless or 3G service.

Mine didn't show up on the trace and track until a day after it left port on the Fidelio.
Been tracking with

Search by Vessel Name, Port, or Ocean Area.

How do you KNOW that you will be on the Faust on 03/30/11? I EXPECT to be on the Faust on that date, but do not know for certain. My car, born on 03/21/11, has been "at the port of exit waiting for a shipping vessel" since 03/23/11. Apparently just too late to make the Fidelio which left that day.

By the way, this is a DIRECT link to the track and trace page on the Wallenius Willhelmsen site:

https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/ocean.do?method=getDefaultOceanQuickSearchPage

Also, as I type this, the Faust is just about to pass through the narrowest point of the English Channel (between Dover and Dunkirk) on its way to Bremerhaven, expected arrival on 03/29/11 -- why is it only doing 9.5 knots?. Here is where Faust is right now:

To find the Faust at any time (when in range) just go here:

http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/datasheet.aspx?datasource=SHIPS_CURRENT&alpha=A&level0=200

Then type in Faust under vessel name, then choose "show on map".

Yes, I'm stalking my car and (likely) ship. I'm not a five series though, but maybe you'll let me hang here in the Faust expectant thread. I waiting on a 328xi sedan (space gray, saddle brown leather; premium package; convenience package; navigation; satellite radio; harmon kardon radio upgrade; split fold/rear seats).

This will be my 2nd bimmer. Currently driving a 2005 X3 -- trading it in for $13,000 towards the new 328xi. This is my first "custom" built bimmer. The X3 was off the lot.

The waiting is fun and horrible at the same time. Have called the 800 number a million times and bugged my CA a little too much I think.

I received info from loginout at Munich. since yours is not an european delivery (I think), that 800 number & CA are best contacts to help you. FAUST arrives on 3/29 & leaves on 3/30!! wow.

Yes, I'm not ED. If its like the Fidelio, Faust won't leave until just before midnight on 03/30 (so almost March 31st really by the time it sets sail).

By the way, here's a documentary video on the Faust:

The other ship is the Undine which is West Coast bound. I hope my car makes it on board. It's been sitting at the port for about the last week and a half. No way to know for a few days though.
