Congrats, getting closer is an amazing feeling!

Novice question here. I know my boat is supposed to arrive next Friday into Baltimore. Does anyone know which boat this is or how to find out?

BMW website changed the status to en route to US yesterday. Mine maybe in the same boat as yours. How long does it take from that date to be delivered to California dealership?

24-25 days in transit on the ship. 4-5 days at the port VDC. 2-3 days in transit to dealer plus dealer prep work.

Mine probably is on that boat as well. As for the boat to Baltimore they may be delayed because of Sandy. If you know the name of the boat you can track it through some web sites and you can also find some port's schedule of when boats are supposed to dock on the Internet as well (though Sandy probably threw that schedule out the window).

Our X1 is on the Florida Highway which departed Bremerhaven on Oct.17 and was due into Brunswick on Oct.31, after a scheduled stop in Baltimore on Oct.28.
Florida Highway arrived off the Jersey shore last Saturday, but did not dock in Baltimore until yesterday, and is today, Nov.1, on it's way to Brunswick. Looks like they rode out the storm in 60/70 knot winds. Hopefully no damage resulted.

What line/ship was it on? My SA told me mine should be getting into Baltimore on November 9th, he said this Saturday post-Sandy. But when I checked out all the ships their expected arrival dates were either yesterday or the next one was the 15th of November.

My car is on the Triton Leader arriving in port this evening. My CA is already pestering the VDC and hopes to have the car ready to deliver this Sunday.
