Anyone else on the Fedora? My 228i just made it to the port on the 28th! I'll post GPS tracking images of the Fedora here over the next month.

I missed it by a few days I'm pretty pissed! Btw the arrival date should be 6/26 not 7/26. Congrats and enjoy the wait! I really hope there is another boat going to the west coast besides the Mignon which leaves on 6/14.....or else that'll mean my car will be stuck at port for 2 weeks.

Can someone confirm if port installed accessories are installed at the port in Germany before it boards the ship or after it arrives at the port in the states?

I am on that one YAY

I thought I would not make it as my car arrived after the cutoff for delivery but I guess I did.

Congrats! The wait is almost over...

I hope I'm going to be on the next one headed to the East Coast.

All port installed accessories are installed at the VPC once the car arrives in the States as far as I know.

This documentary on the Wallenius Wilhelmsen vessel, "Faust" doesn't make me feel very comfortable knowing the risks of a 25 day voyage. Haha...

Don't worry the Fedora is a 1 year newer ship. It will be fine.

Jk. I watched that the other day very interesting.

Glassjaw, I would check Wallenius Wilhelmsen's tracking website. Enter your vehicle's last 7 digits of the VIN and it should say whether or not your car made it on the ship or not.

Hope your car made it! My car made it to the docks a day before the Fedora arrived.

Based on a fellow forum member's timeline who ordered a 3 series to Honolulu, it should take about 8 days from Long Beach to Honolulu after it arrives in Port Hueneme, CA.

My CA quoted about 100 days from the day ordered. (I got lucky and they were able to pull a car from the production line. Ordered on the 12th of May and the 228i completed production on the 24th of May)

I don't believe they have a list of the vehicles aboard. Try entering the last 7 digits of your VIN into the Cargo ID field at https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage

It should bring up your shipment info if your car had already been booked with Wallenius Wilhelmsen. Good luck!
