550i waiting in Bremerhaven

Well my 550i was completed Friday 11/26 and is now waiting for a ship in Bremerhaven. Final destination is Raleigh, NC. Looks like either WW Fidelio or WW Manon. That or K-line Curitiba. I hope it is the K-line as it arrives in Brunswick a full week earlier than either WW ship. I am assuming a North Carolina bound car would be shipped to Brunswick? Anyone else in the SE waiting for their ride to board ship?

My Florida bound 550i, completed 11/25, may be waiting right next to yours. Hopefully we make it on the Fidelio (or that K-Line ship I was not aware of). I understand Brunswick will be the destination. This waiting is killing me.

Yes, the wait the worst part. The K-line ship is the Curitiba which leaves on the 4th and arrives @ Brunswick on the 13th. Seems with the K-line ships Brunswick is the first east coast stop. The opposite with the WW ships. I am crossing my fingers!

Mine was completed on Oct 30th and landed in Brunswick Dec 1st, with Dealer delivery set for Dec 10th. It took 17 days to get on the Georgia Highway vessel and then 13 days to get to Brunswick. bbmarkey had a completion date of Oct 27th and he took delivery on Nov 23rd. It's just luck of the draw. But, good things come to those who wait!!!

I would hope mine gets on a ship soon. If not delivered to be my Jan 3 I lose the lease pull-ahead. If that is the case i will refuse the car and order another one rather than get dinged for the remaining lease payments (April) on my current ride.

Well the Fidelio has left port as of this morning. Check out http://www.digital-seas.com/vessel_s...io_q13746.html to track its progress through the North Sea. You'll have to register and log in to see it.

I saw that. My hope is we get on the Curitiba (K-Line) currently in Southampton. It goes straight from Bremerhaven to Brunswick (ETA 12/13). I checked the WW website to track cargo (my VIN did not show up) and the BMW tracking 800 number and mine is still listed as waiting for transport.

My 550i finished production 12/3 and is waiting transport. Do you have to contact the dealer to find out the ship your car is on?

They will not know until it is given to the carrier to load. Then they can find out via a vehicle inquiry which ship it is on. 12/3 completion date it may have just gotten to Bremerhaven. The Manon is loading as we speak so it may make it on for a 12-9 departure.

Smhoer - Well seems pretty clear at this point we didn't get on the Fidelio as I'm still awaiting transport. Curitiba and Manon are both in port. From what you said before, Curitiba is more direct so let's keep our fingers crossed.

Yeah nothing yet. Hopefully we will find out something positive by Friday. I would really like my Christmas present.

I have a 550i that, according to bmw website, is awaiting transport. I have a delivery date of Jan 6th at Performance Center in SC; I also live in SC. The wait is killing me!!!! How do you find out whether (or when) it is actually on board a ship?

When the status changes you can call your CA and he can give you the ship name it is on. He should also have the ship's ETA to the port or you can track the ship online.

No change in my status either. Still hopeful that there is just a delay updating status. Been at port awaiting transport for nearly 2 weeks now. Three ships have come and gone. Must be some serious backlog. Hopefully my car has not fallen into the North Sea.

***UPDATE***
My CA shows that it left Bremerhaven yesterday and is aboard the CURITIBA due in to Charleston on the 15th or 16th. Sweeeet! I'm going to try to see if I can track the ship now. Whoo hoo
