You JUST missed the boat if it's heading for West Coast. TURANDOT departed 6/16. - It docked in South Hampton for a bit and is heading toward Panama.

Mine was built on June 15th and is also waiting at port to get on the ship. It'll be coming to California as well!

bmwusa.com - create an account and you can add your production # so that you can track it. Though you shoudl ask for the dealer to give you the VIC (Vehicle ID number) - that's a more accurate gauge

there's a sticky post above that'll tell you how to track - You can even call an 800 number to follow up on status.

Mine is also on Turandot. However, it needs to then go to Portland. I have been tracking it at: http://www.sailwx.info/shiptrack/shi...html?call=SGBA

Norcal 135, I found out my car is on a ship called the Volans Leader on its way to California. Do you know if you're on this ship too?

That is indeed the ship that my car is on. The ship is currently crossing the Atlantic - its next port of call is Jacksonville on July 6. According to my dealer, it is due in Port Hueneme on July 19, then figure 7 days for customs, trucking to SF and PDI. BTW - let me know if you are able to find more info about the ship schedule - there is not a lot of info on line about this particular ship's itinerary.

I havn't been able to find much info on the Volans leader either, other than what you already stated. Hopefully customs won't take to long.

Congrats! I've been only waiting 4 days and it hurts. I bet it hurts more when it gets closer to delivery. How did you find out about when it was "born"?

For those of you who have a car on the Turandot, it just went through the Panama Canal today. It is scheduled to dock in LA at 11 pm 7/10. For me, it will be another week before arriving in Portland. I am glad I am traveling, it will distract me.
