MAERSK WIND enroute to NY/South Carolina . . .

I just got an email from my dealer when I asked him to check on shipping for my car. Here's his reply:

Your car shipped from the Bremerhaven Port via the carrier Wallenius Wilhelmsen. The vessel is the MAERSK WIND. The voyage number is EX802. The bill of lading number is DE718517. the Xref no. is 09602-01.
It departed on 1/30 and expected to berth in South Carolina on or around 2/12/08. it should end up the S.C. facility the next day.

The final question is, how long does it sit there awaiting release?

The Wallenius Wilhelmsen site seems to confirm the schedule for this ship. It shows it arriving and also departing NY on Feb 2nd and arriving Charlston, Feb 12. I have not called the 800# person to confirm this yet. My dealer's info seems to always be correct though.

Congratulations! Once the car is turned over to the shipping line only your dealer can provide current info.

So wait, does this mean you're getting yours before the official release date that is in late March? (Its March 22nd right?)

I wish I could buy 135, but am stuck with the Ti for a while longer (Not that I don't think it's a great car.. it is!)

Bozola, I can't part with mine either! I hope to have it for a long time.

Smokey, now the automated system today says I'm at port (again). Yesterday, it couldn't give me any info and transferred me to a person, who told me they believe I'm on a vessel after being in Bremerhaven for 9 days, but had no details. I try not to bother them in person too often. Maybe I'll check again tomorrow.

I don't know what to believe. :iono: Hope I'm with 'the gang'! :drinking:

Larry, I called the toll free number yesterday and the operator told me to contact my dealer. So, I called the dealer this evening and received the shipping info. You might want to contact your CA tomorrow to see what's going on. But am sure it's already in transit cause I saw at least 30 other 1ers (they had VINs that started with WBAU) on the ship when I checked the status of the Liberty a few minutes ago.

The WBAUC73 VINS run from #1046 to #1089. That comes to 43 cars.

Well, they are all "cars" but who knows what kind.

Also, I'm AW/Terra too !

BMW had to put my black on black 1er on the Liberty cause all those AW were beginning to pull it to the lighter side.
