General BMW Questions Use this forum to ask general question about the BMW ownership and keep up on the latest BMW news. This is one of the better ones (modified from a Bimmerfest posting of the past for better organization so as to be more usable to the user). I remember looking at this a long time ago and noticing that it's not quite right for my wagon, and my M6 is nowhere in sight. Great information,the only problem is the text is so wide I can't,and I'm sure others can't print it for a reference.
If that doesn't work for you, the originals on Bimmerfest were in two parts (see the referenced E39 sticky thread if that helps) so maybe printing those (which are half the size) would work for you?
Having purchased two new BMWs myself, I have been in situations where I looked up several resources on how to track my new BMW from its early ordering stages, to production status, ship tracking and all the way to being loaded on the transport truck. The process can be quite obsessive, but truth is that I had tremendous fun seeing the car going through all these stages. Now what I haven’t done was to setup a complete obsessive exciting guide that will provide all the resources needed to track your newly ordered BMW. So, sit back, take notes, bookmark the page, share it with others, print it out, Tweet it, Digg it, whatever you need to do because this article will remain as one of the most important and useful articles ever posted by us. The car was scheduled to be delivered, and awaiting my pick up at the dealer by June 15th, 2009. I decided, after I discovered the delay, to find out where my car was, and when I would eventually get it. Now you can just call this contact, and it will give you the production status, without the need for you to fumble typing it in, or memorize any numbers.


The Shipping schedules are posted as a PDF at the Wallenius Wilhelmsen website, and changes, but look for the Westbound schedule chart.
NOTE: My car never was displayed on this tracking site although Wallenius Wilhelmsen is listed as the logistics carrier, and agent for my ship, operated by ARC. For sailwx, enter the port latitude, and longitude of Bremerhaven, the port BMW usually ships their cars out of.
The ship photos in the pop-up window on MarineTraffic show the Integrity as green, not blue – the ship was repainted blue in 2008. Final Destination, VPC New Jersey Port, shown below is the Northern NEAT (North East Auto Terminal) dock. Once your ship arrives with your car, the cars are driven to a large parking lot for staging and processing through customs. The car will spend up to three days being prepped for the American market, and being repaired to factory specifications should damage have occurred in transit, in my case, none did.
According to the report, BMW is preparing a new version of the i8 plug-in hybrid which will deliver 750 horsepower. BMWBLOG goes to Dallas to test drive the new 2015 Rolls Royce Ghost Series II When is a car not a car? It's shrunk down to the minimum that would barely fit in a Bimmerfest post also, so there's not a lot I can do to make the text more printable other than those suggestions above. Besides the three letters that are not allowed in the VIN itself (I, O and Q), the letters U and Z and the digit 0 are not used for the year code. But, another BMW fan and owner comes to my rescue and provides, by far, THE MOST COMPLETE guide I have ever seen and believe me, I have seen quite a few on several BMW forums.


I have no doubt that you will learn a lot from his experience; I know I did, even though I thought I knew it all. The destination listed on your ships itinerary will likely be the next port, and not your cars final destination.
If you have a car shipped via WWL you will be able to see status update on the tracking site using your VIN to see when your car clears customs. Note that the year code can be the calendar year in which a vehicle is built, or a model or type year allocated by the manufacturer. Once on a ship, BMW status on their website will no longer provide a detailed update, but you can still continue to track the vehicle.
The year 1980 was encoded by some manufacturers, especially General Motors and Chrysler, as "A" (since the 17-digit VIN wasn't mandatory until 1981, and the "A" or zero was in the manufacturer's pre-1981 placement in the VIN), yet Ford and AMC still used a zero for 1980.
Subsequent years increment through the allowed letters, so that "Y" represents the year 2000. 2001 through 2009 are encoded as the digits 1 through 9, and subsequent years are encoded as "A", "B", "C", etc.
