Sorry about that. Would had been a cool race. However I am Spartanburg delivery which typically costs extra time. You still might beat me.

So much for racing. Genius line says no sign mine left Zeebrugge yet…😔
We have to hope for the boat on the 24th, I think today's boat will have a 22 day journey if I read the chart correctly. Of course, I have no idea what port you are going to, lol, I'm going to Baltimore, or at least I should be. Where are you going? You might have said, but I don't remember.

Will be tight. You need to ask your dealer which port they are typically using. If it is Brunswick, GA it takes about 20 days for the boat ride depending on how many stops the boat has. The big ? Is how long you need to wait at port. This seems to take around 4 weeks. You also need a few days from US port to your dealer.
Markus, Update shows it is now "At Port". So I assume I need to wait till it is onboard and then I can find out which vessel it will be on. I'm just looking at My Garage in BMW Owner website. I'll call Genius once I see it is onboard.

Any other tips/suggestions?

You are correct. It takes about two days for the tracker, Genius and Dealer system to know you are on a ship. Once they confirm this you can get a detailed itinerary like the one my dealer SA sent me. For example my car will take a train from Charleston to Spartanburg. By the way some people in this forum observed that your car could switch back to at port once it arrives at the US port and go back to transit on its way to the dealer.

Your VIR actually has had your port of entry on it all along. (y)

Rollermonkey, is it one of the codes found here? Dest Loc?
Yup, yup. Port Loc. and Feeb already 'decoded' it for you. Saint Simons Island Port of... Huh. I don't remember what the 'A' is? But yeah, Brunswick, GA.
Arrival? Sounds good to me.

According to my SA the Brooklands is heading to Baltimore first, ETA 7/26. Currently she is still out of range for the free Marine tracker to see her. Next she will head to New Brunswick, scheduled to arrive June 30th, than Charleston. In Charleston she will load BMW SUV’s and head back to Europe.

Cool, lots of possibilities, including one today (if there is a god?) Curious why some Voyages are 28-30 days and others are 15-18 days? All say Direct. That doesn't add up so assume some trips have more stops.

Anyway, I think I will need to speak with my Bank about their 45 day validity of their loan quote. Hopefully they can extend it a week or two more, realistically.

The Brooklands is back in range for the free marine tracking to pick her up. Landing in Baltimore later today. This would had been my port if I wouldn’t had decided to do Spartanburg delivery with the Charleston port.

After dropping off cars in Baltimore she is now in Brunswick. Heading to Charleston tomorrow where she is dropping off my i4 and picking up a bunch of BMW SUV’s before heading back to Bremerhaven.
