First post-- just found out I'm week 26!

I ordered my 128 on May 28th, and it went into production this week. I swear, I'm dying here. I can't wait.

It looks like I'm week 26th as well. I thought I was 25 because I thought my production was done last week but when I called today, my car just finished production...


WTF, I hate the inaccurate updates.

Looks like my 135i is at the tail end of the Week 26 production. It just finished production today. Not bad considering my order was placed only 12 days ago on 6/15. Now the dreadful 'awaiting transport' and 'en route' parts are next and take the longest... On the bright side, the time between this 135i order and production is already much shorter than my previous E46 M3 order.

i wonder when the next boat will travel to the west coast...

well, been waiting at the port of exit for about 3 days now. i'm sure hoping a boat comes along and picks up my little 1er soon! Actually, while I am very anxiously awaiting the arrival of her, I am glad she isn't coming until August because it won't be until August that I will have a job to support her! Damn universities and their transcript :bs:. Even though I left them specific instructions on what to do following graduation they still managed to screw it up. sorry for the rant but I just couldn't help it...

To me, it looks like the next ship that is leaving Bremerhaven and coming to Charleston, SC is the PATRIOT and it is leaving 7/7/8 and ariving 7/26/8. I am guessing that is the ship I will be on.
This is from the WWL site though.

Also, the Isolde does not seem to be going to any of the east coast ports.

The following ships are stopping in Brunswick, GA which seem like a possibillity for my car..

Fidelio
Patriot
Otello
Fedora

These ships are stopping in Charleston which is also another possibility

Patriot
Figaro
Courage

The reason I guessed the Patriot was that it seemed to be doing the entire east coast....

New York, Baltimore, Charleston, and Brunswick.

And this seems to be the same route a couple of other peoples east coast deliveries took as far as I can tell...

I'd much rather be on the Fidelio though. It leaves in two days.


Here's a good link for the North America Trade Route.... (Be sure to scroll all the way through and just look at the ships that have dates for Bremerhaven)

This is the fun part right???

Called the 800 number and the message changed. Now it says it is at the port and awaiting a vessel.

Here is some other useful information I got from her:

WEEK 26 PRODUCTION = Week of June 23rd-27th 2008

BMW Canada tel # : 1-800-567-2691

If you have a production # given to you that will help them track your order instantly in their system.

Heheh no problem! Your car should be waiting at port for a vessel like the rest of us by now. There is a ship leaving tomorrow called the Fidelio. Pray your on it!
