Woot!

My F30 328i just left the Port of Durban, South Africa within the past 48hrs!! I wasn't expecting it to leave until Mar 15th aboard the ASIAN VISION but it must be heading directly to the US aboard a non-W&W ship.

My CA is out of town, so I have emailed her backup, but if anyone knows what ship my car may be on, please let me know!

It should be going to the South Carolina VPC from DURBAN as I'm taking delivery in Houston, TX.

Damn this is exciting... Can't wait to drive my white F30.

I'm hoping my vehicle catches the boat out of "Bimmer Heaven" on the 12th, that ship will head to Seattle and I could get the car by mid April. Otherwise it would not get to Seattle until the 21st and would be put me closer to May.

Anyone else just catch a boat in South Africa today?

If you know what boat we may be on, let me know. My CA is on vacation, and her backup isn't responding.

In transit aboard the WISTERIA ACE

Looks like my F30 made it on the WISTERIA ACE (Voyage 45A) which departed DURBAN, SA on 03/07/13 and should arrive in PORT BRUNSWICK, GA on 4/20/13 (~45day voyage).

What's odd is the dealer shows this as a 'MITSUI O.S.K. LINES' shipment and provides the Bill of Lading details, but when I go onto OSK Lines' website, I don't see the WISTERIA ACE in their fleet and my BOL# doesn't track.

Luckily, I can track it with marinetraffic.com in the meantime.

Anyone else on WISTERIA ACE?

I'm on Wisteria Ace also.

Alpine White with Coral Red interior 328i with M Sport, Light, Technology, Premium and HK packages. Wish it wasn't taking so long. We were initially told that it would arrive end of March now its looking end of April. Well that will keep me from having to find a present for my wife for our anniversary April 29th.

*You're not accepting PMs, so I couldn't respond directly.

Ordered mine from BMW of the Woodlands (which is North Houston area as well) after they accepted an offer for a few bucks *below* dealer invoice.

Unfortunately, I'm leaving for SF California for a week on Apr 23rd so I will probably just miss the shipment before I leave. It should get into the BRUNSWICK port on 4/18 and to dealers on 4/21-26 depending on time spent
in the VPC/VDC.

Still unable to determine which boat I am on-not sure if this is better or worse since I have been in transit for a week!

your dealer should be able to see it once it's loaded on a boat...

mine is still waiting at the port...I hope they don't just leave it outside in the open...

MiamiF30, what date did your car show up as 'In Transit'?

If your car was made in South Africa, then you're likely with my car on the WISTERIA ACE assuming it went In Transit on approx Apr 7th, or on the ASIAN VISION if it left on Apr 15th.

If it was made in Germany, put your VIN in the Cargo ID field of this tracking form (you may get lucky and see it listed): https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage

Showed up in transit March 9th, which I've read can be 24 to 72 hours behind. I assume your post meant March, 7th and March, 15th respectfully.

Topside, I omitted to say that my F30 was produced in Germany, first 3 VIN is WBA.

Ahh, then your VIN should show up on the tracking link (W&W Shipping Co) I posted. I beleive almost all Germany shipments are done through W&W. And yes, I did mean to say March and not Apr.

By the way, WBA in your VIN does not indicate a German build.

What does is the 11th character.

A, F, G, K - Munich (GER)
B, C, D - Dingolfing (GER)
E, J - Regensberg (GER)
L - Spartanburg (USA)
N - Rosslyn (RSA)

My car finally made it to the dealers yesterday. We are heading to Houston later today and will pick the car up in the morning. We have been waiting since Feb 19th. Seems like for ever but it showed up just in time to make the wife a nice anniversary gift. I'll post some more pictures when I pick her up.
