Question Tracking the order

I just placed an order for a 2013 535i space gray/ cinnamon. The dealer gave me the production number. however, when I sign in to bmwusa there is 535i xdrive which is black on black. I did not order an xdrive and the car that ordered is not black. When mentioned, the dealer says that it is normal and BMW does that for security purposes. Is this true? Anyone experienced anything similar?
Thanks.

That's normal. Wait a few days and it should update with the specs you ordered.

I ordered my 535i xdrive on 12/21/2012. Mojave Metallic with Cinnamon Brown interior. I have been tracking the order and my car is on the boat (BOHEME) that left Bremerhaven on 1/31/2013. Do you know if yours is on that boat as well? I was able to track the ship through the English Channel but now it is in the Atlantic and out of range until it nears Nova Scotia in about 7 days.

Boheme should be in Canada shortly. You'll get your car delivered in no time.

If you know your Itinerary (MMSI) you can enter it here, and it will give you some more information, worth a shot.

http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/dat...SI=&level1=230

I wasn't able to track just the Vessel name, but if I entered the MMSI number, it gave me more detailed / up to date status.

It just spits out that the vessel has communicated (via satellite), but doesn't actually give the location coordinates. If anything, it's a sign that the ship carrying your car is still moving

Almost home

Ok. My 535 landed in NJ and has been delivered from WW to the port. Is there anyway to track it thru VPC? According to BMW website, my car is still enroute to the US. Im wondering if the only option at this point is to check with my dealership on a daily basis

The dealer is your best bet.

That's not normal, when I order my car it was the exact color and everything, something is wrong!

Well, in my case, it was! Even the BMW NA people on the phone were amazed that it took so long and that the status never got updated. They tried to fix it thru the system, which failed. But later, after I finally grabbed my VIN from the dealer after 5 weeks and put it in, it started showing the right car.
It is about to enter the port of Halifax tomorrow and be in NJ on Feb 22nd.
