Keeping my fingers crossed, still hoping they can finish up and get to the port with your car.
I know it's highly unlikely but all I can do is
Hope :
Chances are high that we'll probably end up on the same ship at this rate. My car hasn't budged in 2 weeks.

I'm glad yours is moving ahead though!
That would be great! But I remember you saying for your car that everything was moving quick until quality check, which took 6 days.

Do you know if your car is waiting at Bremerhaven port? Also, is your port of entry in Baltimore?

I believe yes on both ports. I'm pretty sure all the M550i cars come out of Bremerhaven and my paperwork looks to have a code that it will arrive at Baltimore.

I checked https://www.2wglobal.com/ and looked both the departing and arriving ports and looks that there are at least 4 ships that go to Baltimore that leave within the next week (including today). So hopefully mine makes it! Wonder if yours will join too.

Anyways, I got an email from my dealer stating that there is a bit of a "log jam" with cars so it might be a while for all vehicles to get out...

Thank you for that link! I checked it out and it seems that they have one leaving on March 25, 29, 30th for this month.

My final production date is March 26th, I don't think they will be able to get my car to the port and on the ship for any of those dates unless some miracle happens

I hope they get yours moving, you have been waiting patiently

Hope you both get yours soon... just ordered mine yesterday.

According to MyBMW, it's scheduled for production, but dealer didn't give me production week yet because they swapped with another to get mine sooner. ((Im)patiently waiting for Genius to open tomorrow to see if they have it.

Now, please tell me why I am looking at the Bremerhaven cam already??

Congrats on your order!

Ok, got my production week, week 14, 4/15. Yay!

So does that mean it will finish by 4/15 or by the end of that week, the 21st?

M550i ordered

I think I had the same 14th week production date for this month as you do for next month.
It could have also been the 15th week, I can't remember exactly. However, my dealership gave me a actual date of production which was suppose to be 3-18-19. Since then it got changed twice to 3-22-19 and now 3-26-19.

I've been checking all day today and my car is still in quality check. I don't think it will be done today. I guess I will have to wait and see what the new date will be.

I'm quickly realizing that those dates are just ballpark numbers! If everything happens on time your in luck. If not, best to find a way to control your anxiety lol.

Bastula actually put up a timeline of his production on the first page of this thread.

Wooohoo! The car is in transit on ship NOCC Oceanic. Looks like it left Bremerhaven on 3/23/2019. Estimated to arrive in Baltimore on 4/6/2019.

So that makes it about 2 weeks at the port. The website was a little slow to update relative to the actual time that the car departed the port.

Really excited for you!!!

I just got an email from the dealers saying that my car is done. The website still shows it's in quality check but they told me that it's running slow and there is a delay in updates.

Quality check took about a week for me. Something about getting the latest software update. Hope it moves fast now!

Who did you speak with to get updates on your car?

I'm a little confused, the dealership said that my car finished production on 3/26/19.
When I check online it still shows that my car is in quality check. I understand the website is running slow but I'm shocked, almost 3 days later a simple update on car status is not changed.

It's possible it could be delayed update. When mine finally got on the boat it didn't update until Tuesday although it got put on the boat the Saturday right before.

I was getting updates from the GM.

I spoke with the GM, he's the one that gave me the update on the car being finished with production on 3/26/19.

Your probably right, most likely this is me just getting impatient and anxious :

I don't know if it's harder in the beginning or closer to finish when they are almost done.

I think it's harder at the beginning. You're not quite sure what to expect and every single hiccup or even momentary delay puts you on edge. At least IMHO

Once it gets towards the end, I think it's more predictable.

Final production completed today lol!!

I called BMW yesterday to ask why the status of my car has not changed for 11 days. All the systems were down and they were unable to look it up.

I was already told that my car completed production on 3/26/19. I get an email from GM today saying that my car has just completed today lol!!

I knew something wasn't right, it wasn't making sense for the system to be that slow with an update. I guess my wait just got even longer
