The production was fastest part, itís the shipping thatís take forever. 3-4 days before it makes to the port and loaded on the boat, transit time was almost 5 weeks before the car was stateside. Then itís up to customers and transit time to your dealer and BMWís tracking was pretty unless once it the was stateside.

I've looked at the ship schedules based on when mine could get to the port, there are three that come to Brunswick GA and take between 17-20 days. Then it's just an hour down to Jacksonville. Still, I've watched others stall at the port for two weeks so it's just a game of wait and see....

After arriving stateside everything went pretty quick.
The 45-100mph pulls will leave you smiling.

I hate to admit but unfortunately my car is still sitting there.

It has now been 10 days since reaching the port.

That's terrible!

What does Genius/Your SA have to say about the delay?

I see a train with cars at the port... In my dream one of them is mine....

I can relate!
Mine sat at the port for 11 days. BMW Genius told me they can sit there for up to 2 weeks waiting for a ship to arrive and fill up.

My build was complete on 3/19 and didn't leave the port until 4/5. It's estimated to arrive in Brunswick on 4/23.

Yes, I think the waiting at the port for up to 2 weeks is common occurrence now. At least it has been documented by several individuals so it's not a one off. That's the issue I had where all the M550i vehicles built before mine seemed to leave the port within days.

Well according to Genius and now MyBMW my car is at the port. Maybe that train of cars I saw on the webcam this morning really did have mine.

But, Genius did confirm possibility of 1-2 weeks at port. I find that hard to believe with the number of ships I see leaving Bremerhaven over the next several days. But only time will tell....

Have I mentioned how much I want my car??

I know what you mean! I was tracking mine every day until the ship went out of coverage. But now that it's on it's way and almost here, I don't worry about it as much.
But then again, it has been just over 2 months since I placed the order so I am ready for the waiting to end.

I know I've been very lucky so far... 24 days from order to port.

You can get a free trial of the ship tracker that will give you realtime satellite location for one ship all the way across the Atlantic.

And you can get the car carrier info from Genius and depending on the carrier track them on the road via GPS..

Yep, I'm a techie geek at heart....

Like Bastula mentioned. I think it's very common now to expect 10-14 days at the port.

However, I feel like m550 that started production during your time are going to have a faster process.

When I placed the order (Feb 13th), the dealer said the build allocation was for April. But it got bumped up to March.
So it was 4 weeks from order to build.

Yes, I was aware of the free trial for the satellite tracking, I just didn't want to bother with signing up and credit card info then having to cancel.
Last I checked on Marine Traffic, it looks like the ship will be in Baltimore 3 days later than scheduled.

Yeah my car reached the port on 4/5/19.
I didn't know there was a ship leaving on 4/5, I only saw 4/7/19 and 4/9/19.

Do you know what ship your car got on?

So now your estimated time on ship is going to be 23 days till it gets to Baltimore?

I'm on the Horizon Highway. Apparently it left on the 5th. Stopped in Zeebrugge and Southhampton.
It was scheduled into Brunswick on the 20th. But now it shows arriving in Baltimore on the 22nd and in Brunswick on the 23rd.

I'll be doing the same thing. The car I'm driving now is giving me a lot of trouble, which makes this wait unbearable.
