I found out last week my build week is 18 but didn't see a support group and JMM71 suggested I create one so here it is.

We're on the train together. I got excited at that delivery date, then noticed you don't have an ocean to cross for yours :p

Was that an inquiry to the genius to get that estimate?
Yes, BMW Genius gave me that date.
Awesome! "Awaiting Carrier Assignment" 馃槉
Now on 154---seems to be moving along nicely.
Mine moved from Awaiting Carrier Assignment to Dispatched from Factory overnight. I鈥檓 guessing it鈥檒l get to the port today, and then the wait begins for a boat鈥

We must all be on the same ship possibly. My dealer said I should have my car in 2-3 weeks. 馃.. Baltimore Port.

I鈥檓 in Houston鈥 almost certainly headed to Galveston. We鈥檒l see!
I鈥檓 at 193 - arrived at Cuxhaven. My dealer is in Southampton so assume I鈥檒l be on a UECC Cuxhaven to Southampton boat at some point this week.

I am also at 193-- at port. Waiting for a ship. I assume mine will go to Galveston since I live in Dallas. @610Roaming, I would think that we will be on the same ship.

Mine is PCD so I think it is Charleston. We may or may not be on the same boat since you are about a day ahead of me and not all ships make a stop at all ports.
You'll go to Brunswick and then by train to the PC.
Seems like most are waiting 3+ weeks to actually get on a ship, unfortunately. I鈥檓 build week 16 and still waiting :(
It's all over the place. Some have waited a few days, others a couple weeks. There doesn't seem to be a lot of reason to it, although my suspicion has to do with the number of cars heading for ports on the ship routes (there are many other cars and manufacturers, so there's a pretty broad set of inputs to the algorithm).
Pretty sure I went "Dispatched from factory" before some of y'all, but I'm still not at port. I would assume we were on the same train to Bremerhaven. I wonder if that's a LIFO process at the port :)

Awesome!! I made it also.. 馃槉 Hoping I can get on either one of the WW ships that leave this week. One leaves on the 10th and other one leaves on 5/11

I have been reading mixed posts about the port as some say Charleston while others say Brunswick for PCD. Thanks for confirming.
It has been sitting at the port since Friday morning. Hope it gets on a ship soon.

The Vehicle Information Report your CA can give you shows the port of entry. It's my understanding that most PCD cars go to Brunswick. It's possible they go to Charleston, but it's a much smaller facility for BMW and the transport isn't as direct (BMW uses Brunswick for export from Spartanburg for the X series, as well, and there are direct trains).

@610Roaming , let me know if you hear anything. I called BMW Genius today and they don't yet have any information about ships. The port of entry for mine is Galveston since the car is coming to Dallas.

Mine has been in port for more than 3 weeks waiting to be shipped to Galveston ( build week 16). Next ship heading to Galveston is WW Arc Independence (05/11) followed by K-line Drive green highway (departing on 05/23) but both expected to arrive to Galveston on 06/08.

Thanks, om2023. Hopefully all of us in Texas waiting for cars get on one of those ships.

It seems some people wait a few days at the port and others may take several weeks. Not sure what determines that. So far I've seen the shortest wait time of 7 days

I'll have been at port for 7 days tomorrow, there is a ship leaving tomorrow for the East coast fingers crossed I'm on it.
