I did this when my M3 was making its trip. It nearly sent me insane!!! You can go one step further and watch it in real time when it is close to shore near AIS trackers, although when you do this you don't get much else done.

So its due in late march hey. So when did you put your order in? I put an order in for my wife in November so you never know could be on the same boat.

anyway good luck with the tracking, I'm going to spare myself this time. I've only just got over the time I lost late last year with the M.

Good on ya mate. Your a stonger person than me. I got the phone call today that my car made it to port of Brisbane last week. Should be ready for delivery at some stage next week. Also saw a silver X1 at the dealer in the flesh at the dealer for the first time today. What a great looking car in real life. looks much better than the pictures I've seen.

Nah, this was in Brisbane, but looks like you've found another to look at anyway. You'll be very impressed, very hot looking car in the flesh.

Finally saw the car on the weekend at Doncaster and was lucky to take it out for a test drive! Beautiful and wonderful car! It was slightly a bit bigger than what I had hoped for, but otherwise, can't wait to have my car in May!

My wifes car is sitting in the BMW showroom waiting to be delivered now. Unfortunately BMW Aust won't let them hand over any cars until the X1 has been officially launched. After a bit of complaining to BMW Aust they have agreed to let the dealer release the car on the 9th of April. You should all see the showroom! They have about 4 new X1's just sitting there wait for thier new owners to pick them up....

Well, although I've already got mine X1, it's still interesting how did you manage to track the delivery? Okay you knew the VIN and? Where did you use it? Could you please share the knowledge? I know on the BMW US site you can track shipping right on-site.

just go to that website. if your car is in transit and being carried by Wallenius it will show up.

My next X1 just hit the dock in Sydney... looking forward to the upgrade.

Hi, frayedsheet!

Thanks for the reply and congrats with getting the ride.

Of course I was about to ask what if the car is being delivered to some other country. I mean how did you come to know that your car was being delivered by Wallenius? Through the dealership?

Cheers,
E. H.

Argh. I just checked the voyage of the ship, and it was in Melbourne before it was in NSW. I wish I'd bought my car from a dealer in Melbourne. 8-(
