My Garage: A New BMW Order & Production Tracking Site

Apparently it's been available since the beginning of May. I've been using it the past couple of days.

Go to bmwusa.com and click on "MyBMW". When you're presented with the login page, look to the right under "Check Out What's New". There's a new button labeled "Explore My Garage". Click on this button and it should take you to the new "My Garage" page. To log in, you have to use your ConnectDrive username and password. If you don't have a ConnectedDrive account, create one.

If you already have a ConnectedDrive account, My Garage should show you the vehicles that are already in your account. If not, just add the VINS. You will also have to provide the date that you purchased the vehicle.

If you have recently ordered a new vehicle and have the Production Number, you can enter that. Then click on Track My BMW and it will show you the production status. There are now 16 tracking stages:
  • Order Received
  • Schedule for production
  • Production begins
  • Exterior body assembly begins
  • In paint booth
  • Entering assembly line
  • Assembly in progress
  • Quality check
  • Final assembly
  • Ready for transport
  • Awaiting carrier assignment
  • Dispatched from factory
  • At the port
  • In transit
  • At the dealership
  • Vehicle Delivered.

For the last couple of days it has shown the status of my wife's M3 as "Scheduled for production". This morning it showed "Production begins. Today's the day: your BMW has entered the production queue."! The old tracking site still shows it as scheduled.

STATUS: Awaiting carrier assignment - Does that mean at the port waiting or still at the plant waiting? Anyone else on the the West Coast waiting longer than a month for their car to get to the port after it's already finished production? I ordered mine back in January 5th, production finished April 4th and now it's just sitting for no reason.

Well, "Awaiting carrier assignment" comes before "Dispatched from factory" and "At the port", so I think that the answer is obvious.

And then again, the status could just be wrong...

Yeah I noticed there was a timeline after I posted, can't believe it's been sitting for a month and half now and it's still not at the port.

So is mine! Did yours happen to arrive in Baltimore last night on the Tamerlane? It ported at roughly 10:30PM last night, so I suspect that "In Transit" is a catch-all status that includes customs and VDC prep as well as actual transit to the dealer

This is a cool page and certainly provides more accurate pictures of the cars than the previous offering (though it is still there). The curious thing is that when I put our production number in, the car specifications are pulled up correctly, but it shows that the car is in "order received" status. The reason that is curious is that we did European delivery on May 9 and dropped it off in Frankfurt on May 18. I wonder if the European delivery confuses the situation???

On that same note, does anyone know how to track the car between the drop off point and when it gets on a ship? I thought waiting for the Welt delivery was hard, but leaving the car and now waiting for redelivery is worse. First world problems!

Mine just says "In Transit" even when I call the 1-800 number. I tried searching for my VIN on one of the shipping sites but it said order not found. Did your dealership give you the ship name?

There has to be an error with the status.

I ordered mine around March 7th and it just arrived here in CA at the port (San Pedro, I believe). I should have it in the next 10 days or so. And you ordered yours 2 months before me

FWIW, mine sat in the port in Germany awaiting carrier assignment for nearly 2 weeks. And I was even frustrated by that.

If they ordered any individual options (exterior color or interior) it would add approximately 8 weeks to his build. (What I was quoted for Opal White)

Yes, my SA provided the shipping company, ship name, voyage number and a couple of other things. The info was pulled from DCSnet.
