Ordered placed on Nov 20th. Completed production on Dec 3rd. Arrived at Port Dec 8th. Left Bremerhaven on the Faust. I tracked it using FleetMon (free trial membership) as it sailed to Belgium, through the English Channel stopping in Southampton, UK and then across the Atlantic to Halifax, Canada. Finally docking in Newark, NJ on January 2nd. The car left VPC on January 7th. I picked it up at the dealer on eastern Long Island, NY on January 9th.

Per the guide, don't use the site. Call BMW Genius.

Genius is better - more detailed info. But on the left side of the mybmw site, look for add/remove vehicle. Then it'll show up under Track My BMW.

Others have mentioned that some of the options may not be correct on the site. Mine was slightly off and then it updated to the correct packages a few days later.

I was just told by BMW Genius that they now longer will be giving out status codes. The Genius mentioned that this was a fairly recent policy that was implemented.

Did this happen to anyone else?

I have not heard that anywhere else yet. If more people can verify I'll update the tracking guide. That would be very unfortunate.

I was surprised too. Hopefully, the person(genius) I was talking to made a mistake.


Can anyone else confirm?

Don't confuse status with status codes.

I noticed that the Genius hotline has always been reluctant to give out codes like 151 Paint shop. They will confirm paint shop but won't mention 151 unless you specifically ask.

I just inquired about my status yesterday, but I named the status and the Genius rep confirmed it.

So does having a production number mean you have been given an allocation?

We are currently processing your order and will inform you once your BMW enters production.????

From the tracking guide on the first page: "and ask for your production order number. (if your dealership had an allocation) This is a 7 digit number that ties you to the allocation. You should receive this production number within a few hours or within the next day at the latest."

Car completed production 1/27 but has been at the port awaiting a vessel since 1/29. Is this typical?

At least yours is completed, I'm waiting for mine to start production! Reading everyone's experience on here about the waiting game isn't real until your doing the waiting yourself. Good luck dude!

So I'm just a bit curious if they drive the bmw on to the carrier or around at the port how is that your car is "0" miles when you pick it up. Does the dealer reset the mileage before picking up. Your car is no longer brand new.

I don't think anyone ever gets a car with zero miles. Even those that do ED report at least one mile. There is a thread on this topic and it is not uncommon to take delivery stateside with double digits. Mine had 18 miles on it. Most miles are put on during pre-delivery inspection. I believe it would be illegal for the dealer to change the Odo.

Car's aren't delivered with 0 miles on them. ED cars all have at least 1 mile on the OD. Stateside is usually ~5-10.
