Alright! Finally confirmed that I am on the Marina Ace!!! Dealer told me it should be at VPC around 9/10 or so!!!

Man...I can't wait. I still have not been able to figure out how to track the vessel...none of the sites listed on this board have it. Damn NYK!! makes things so difficult.

Well...cheers to counting down the days to 9/17...target time to take delivery!

Finally!

I'm in the lobby of the Greenville Marriott in Greenville SC while my wife puts our son to bed. Tomorrow I'll be on the race-track at the Performance Center before picking up my new 325! They are going to spend 2 hours going over my vehicle with me, 2 hours on the race-track (I hope - it sounds too good to be true) and a tour of the factory. Very excited.

How long does it take to get the Production Week Number? I put in my order Tuesday and I got the tracking number on Saturday.

July 7 - Order placed with BMW.

July 8 - Order shows up in BMW Owner's Circle but as the wrong color, as mentioned in the Ultimate Order Tracking Guide. My order was substituted for another vehicle the dealer had on order. Calls placed to the 800 number say that my vehicle is on order.

July 10 - The proper color is now listed in Owner's Circle with it still listed as on order. The 800 number now says that it is scheduled for production with no production date.

July 21 - Vehicle is in production with a scheduled completion date of July 28th.

July 26 - Vehicle in the paint shop with scheduled completion date of 7/28.

July 28 - Vehicle completed production and released to a carrier for transport to port of exit.

July 29 - Vehicle being transported to port of exit. Also, I've noticed my VIN is now available on Owner's Circle under review order detail.

July 30 - Vehicle at port awaiting shipping vessel.

August 5 - Vehicle in transit according to the 800 number. OC says awaiting transport. Called BMW NA for details. They said it was on it's way to the port. Decided to check my VIN on the W&W website and it turns out that it did get on the Aida on August 3rd.

August 17 - The Aida has docked in Charleston and my E90 was discharged according to the W&W cargo tracking website. Their website had this information less than an hour after the event actually had occurred. BMWNA 800 number still lists vehicle in transit.

August 20 - OC website lists my E90 at the VPC in South Carolina. BMWNA 800 number still lists it as in transit.

August 22 - OC says my E90 is at the dealership! That was quick. 5 days from getting off the ship to my local dealership. 800 number still says vehicle in transit. So early on, the 800 number was more up to date, but once the car reached US soil, OC was more accurate.

August 23 - Picking up today at 4. Total number of days: 47 So almost 7 weeks.

Did it also list the production week number at that time? And if so, where? I am wondering if maybe I am missing something because mine is not listed and I placed my order a week ago.

MY DEALER IS LOCATED IN NORTHERN VIRGINIA. WHEN MY CAR IS SHIPPED TO THE U.S IS IT SHIPPED FROM BREMERHAVEN TO CHARLSTON S.C OR BREMERHAVEN TO BALTIMORE M.D?

THE 800 # HAS BEEN TELLING ME THAT THE CAR IS AWAITING SHIPMENT FOR THE PAST WEEK AND IT'S GETTING FRUSTRATING

BEST REGARDS,
Your car will come into port in NYC. It can take up to 10 days or so for the status to change from awaitng shipping vessel.

I never did get a production week number from the 800 number or OC. Maybe a call to your dealership or BMW NA can get you that information.

BEST REGARDS,
Have you checked the W&W website and entered you VIN in their tracking system? BMW had my car still at the port for a couple of days after it had already sailed. Also, once it shows up on W&W's website, it will tell you where it will land in the US. Good Luck!

I think mine is on the Marina Ace, too! Dealer gave me the same arrival time as you all. I am very anxious...it was supposed to be here around the 6th.

Hello all,

I ordered my 325 yesterday. The dealer said that it has an early September production slot. When do you think it would show up on the Owner's Circle site (or the 800 number)? Right now it just says on order with no scheduled production date.

Also, I got it from a dealership in Columbus, Ohio. Would it be processed at the VPC in NJ?

Thanks in advance!

Chris

My early July order took 2 weeks to be scheduled for production. Also, I've seen Cincinnati deliveries go through Charleston, but haven't seen any Columbus E90's yet. Once your E90 gets on a ship, the W&W tracking page will tell you where it's getting off the boat.

For anyone interested on West Coast, mine was shipped on Capricornus Leader to Hueneme (arrived at the port on 8/19). It came to the dealer yesterday (8/25). 19th was Friday night also... I'm picking mine up in 2 hours !!!!!

So not counting the weekend, it took 4 days for the car to be unloaded, through Prep Center, then driven to Northern Cal. Pretty fast!

Hey Kimo,

Hope this is not too late. We were either on the road or with people the whole week and just got back last night.

The whole experience was very very good. The hotel and the food was good, and the experience on the skid pad was fantastic. The amount of time you get to spend on the skid pad itself depends on the # of people who are there to pick up a car and the # of people who want to drive - both the new owner and their partner get to drive. In our case we had 5 owners and a total of 8 who wanted to drive which reduced the amount of time each person got to spend but it was still amazing. I realized that Monday (and probably Friday)is probably their busiest day, a thing to keep in mind if and when I return.

You get a car similar to what you've ordered, (so in your case you'll get a 330) and it's brand new and then they tell you to drive as hard as you can!! My heart started punding the moment the first drive did a huge 360 and I went on to do a couple of those myself.

I wish I had more track time and I didnt particularly like our instructor, Jim, but it was a blast and it was free!

Next I took delivery of my car (the sequence depends on how they split it up amongst all the new owners) in which my Delivery Specialist Jonathan Stribble did a great job of making sure that I knew everything about my car. We then went to the factory and museum. We didnt stay for the factory tour because of time constraints though we would have loved to.

We didnt get a chance to try out any of the lovely driving routes (Blue Ridge Parkway) that people on this forum suggested but the March issue of BMW Magazine that I picked up at the PC and read just yesterday suggested taking I85 to I 126 towards Asheville NC and then taking the first exit in NC to Tryon and then a right on Hwy 176 towards Saluda. You can find more suggestions on theultimatedrives.com a bmw website.

Have fun and let us know how it went!

7. Arrived at port awaiting Shipping Vessel 8/26/05
8. Still waiting for shipping Vessel as of today 8/30/05 in NY on OC and 800#
9. Dealer called today 8/30/05 to say the Vehicle is in there inventory and I could have it Friday if I wanted cause they were booked solid for deliveries on Thursday. Go figure I guess my vehicle already got picked up and BMW is just slow!!!
10. Will be picking up my vehicle on September 7th due to the holiday weekend and I will not be able to get it from Friday to Tuesday.

36 days from order to first possible delivery date. Not bad at all. Im in Brooklyn, NY right outside NYC ordered from my local Life Quality BMW dealer.
