Well, there are several of us here with production scheduled on or about April 12. I'd be interested to know everyone's progress from now until our babies get on the boat. My 330i was in Status 151 last Friday and is scheduled to be completed before Friday.

In other words, here's something else for passing the time on this long wait. :bawling:

And here's a schedule of ships leaving Bremerhaven for the US.

to Charleston (depart/arrive)

April 10/April 25
April 16/May 1 (2 ships)
April 22/May 7
April 23/May 8
Aprirl 28/May 13

to New York (depart/arrive)
--I know this is supposed to be Port Jersey, Newark, but the shipper's website listed no ships for Newark, so I'm guessing they list it as "New York":dunno:

April 10/April 23 (2 ships)
April 13/April 30
April 16/April 29
April 17/April 28 or April 30 (2 ships)

to Port Hueneme (depart/arrive)

April 16/May 13
April 22/May 18
April 22/May 20
April 29/May 28

Of course, I don't really know that each ship is capable of carrying cars, but I recognize many of the ship names from others' posts about which ship their cars were on. Apologies to 325's being built in South Africa -- Don't know how to compute your shipping information.

My car got to the dock on 4/8, and according to BMW, made the boat yesterday that arrives on 4/23. I hope the rest of you with 4/12 production have the same good luck.
The carrier does not have tracking information for my car on their site yet. With luck, our cars are on the boat that continues on to Charleston. Fingers are crossed.
My 325ci shipped on 4/10 aboard the Trinidad. Expected delivery in Wisconsin is 4/28. My only problem is that the car is for my wife and I'll never get to drive it.
My car was loaded on 4/9. It just showed up on cargo tracking this afternoon. Use the vin # when searching for your car.
Does anyone know if the Traviata that left Bremmerhaven on 4/10 has any BMW's on it.
The tire request didn't work for me either.
My salesman told me that BMW really pushes to get cars to the dealers by months end. Once a car is delivered, it's off BMW's inventory. Hopefully we will not have a rushed prep, and all of the cars on the Trinidad will be in our garages by months end. YEE-HAA!
As of today, cars from the Trinidad have made it as far as Wisconsin. Mine was unloaded in Madison.
Does an extended amount of time at VPC indicate that repairs have been made?
