April 12 Production Orders

27942 Views 621 Replies 34 Participants Last post by  TranceLvr
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.

Phone # to get Status?

I see everyone mention status numbers and calling BMW. I have a estimated production date of 4/12 and am going through pains waiting. Can someone out there give me that number, or tell where I can find it. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the number. I've been checking BMWUSA (everyday.. can't help it) and getting very frustrated. Just got off the phone and am code 155. Said it was finished today. Finally some news, doesn't reduce the anxiety I feel!
For two days now, I'm getting the same info, Realeased to Carrier, on it's way to Port of Exit, Status 182.:(
Well, it seems I'm not as lucky as some of you, who are already on your boats. :cry: I called 800 this morning and I'm now status 190, on train headed to port. Maybe if there's a boat going the end of the week I'll get on. :dunno:
I'm trying to wait, and call, maybe closer to 3pm est. Hoping that my status of 190 has changed. :p That's still 4 hours away, can I actually wait that long? :eek: Ackster, are you still updating the list today? Great job btw! :thumb: It's cool to see where everyone's at. :D :D
Sad to say, I'm probably with ya brutha :cry:
F*%[email protected]^' system down

I'm very patient and wait until 2pm to call, trying not to pester too much. I said I'd wait 'til 3, but couldn't stand it any longer. :( And what do I get for my patience? The freakin' system is down. :mad: How am I supposed to get through the day, without my daily dose? :bawling: Ok, I'm done, sorry, I'm not I'm not the first casualty of a down system. :tsk:
System Back Up

System Back Up:thumb: Status has changed:thumb: Confirmed Status of 193. Looks like I won't be on the boat.:( Good luck to the rest of ya!
Well just called and I'm still 193 :( although, I was informed that I've been 193 since Wednesday. :yikes: So I've actually been there for a day earlier than what I thought. :) Maybe I'll make the Queen Ace. :dunno: Guess I'll check Monday! :thumb:
A Cruel Joke

What is going on? :( Is it truly possible that I'm the only one to not make the boat. :bawling: Just called and still status 193 since Wednesday. :thumbdwn: Well congrats to all you "Lucky Bastards". :thumb: :thumb:
Ackster, I'll definately give you an update tomorrow. :thumb: So far there has been no change, still 193, at the port since 4/17 :( I tried to take your suggestion and wait til Wed to call, but that didn't work so well. :rolleyes: I called three times Monday and once already today. You might need to change your list to "Lucky Bastards/ 1 Jealous Bastard". :cry:
Thanks for the encouragement :thumb: :thumb:
Past Life?

I must have pissed someone off in a previous life :dunno: , but I'm sure paying for it now.:yikes: I just called, and I'm still 193. WTF, since 4/17, a week to get on a boat. :confused: Anyway, Ackster, you can make your list: "Lucky Bastards/One More Friggin' Week". And add me to the later. :mad: Well, I'll just live through you guys, and soak in your excitement of arrival day. Congrats :thumb: :thumb:
~Case A.K.A Jealous Bastard
Ackster, You got faith and spunk :thumb: I like it ;) I'll definately call later today and fill you in. :)
Well just called and I'm still..............193:bawling: I can't remember if it was posted somewhere in this massive thread, but does any know how I can go about finding out when/what ships will be departing. My experience to date with BMWNA is that they have been a day behind. I was told originally that on 4/17 I was status 182, then later calls informed me that I actually status 193 on 4/17. So hopefully I'm being loaded today, and for some reason they haven't been notified :dunno: Anyway that's my update. :thumbdwn: And if someone knows about boat schedules I would appreciate it. ;)
TranceLvr, Thanks. :thumb: :thumb: I'll check it out. :D
A'ight. I checked the site, thanks again :) , but know I have another question. Is there anyway of knowing if the ships departing are carrying ships, or is it just guess work? I'm in VA so I'm thinking Baltimore would be my port and not NY, if so AIDA looks like my girl arrival 5/11 if it's NY then 5/9. :dunno: All guess work.
It's alright Darth, I'm breaking out the Grey Goose, to start drinking my blues away. ;)
Thanks all for the support :thumb: Where would we be without family? ;) I'm heading out for a few days on business so hopefully when I return my Baby will be on her way. :D Maybe I'll be able to get my mind off her for a little while. :rolleyes:

Welcome to the family, Redshift. Dysfunctional as it may be. :thumb:
Sailing the 7-Seas!!

YOOOHOOOOO!!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: I just got home last night around 8:30 pm and called BMWNA immediately. I am sailing baby!!!:D I'm on the MAERSK WIND with an arrival date of 5/7 in NY. I show up on the ships cargo list but have no date listed on BMWNA. I'm breaking out in a cold sweat just typing this, Man I can't wait.:D
