BMW couldn't confirm if it is on a boat, therefore I would be interested if anyone else on the forum has similar dates for delivery and could shed light on possibly which boat it could be on (fingers crossed).

The lack of concrete information and always having to chase for updates is mildly annoying, especially as my current X3 is being returned next week and I will be without a car for a while.

I appreciate it's a first world problem :-)

By the dates youve got, I think itís likely to be on the capricornus leader. Which is on its way to Bremerhaven, and then Southampton. I thinks itís been delayed a couple of days, and so may be in Southampton around the 10th of July. Hope this helps.

I’ve got exactly the same dates as you and our cars are more than likely on the Capricornus Leader as Mjones1707 has said. It’s just departed Antwerp this afternoon and is due in Bremerhaven tomorrow before arriving at Southampton on 10th July. From there it’ll be 10-14 days before the car gets delivered to you.

Hope this helps!

In a word no . Unfortunately there was a delay in the shipment from the port to the dealer so I am now expecting to get it on Thursday or Friday.

The Grand Orion departed Dalian on 3rd July so check the status again in a few days. If it's changed to 195 then your car will more than likely be on it. It takes a few days for the status to be updated.

If this is the ship then it should come into Southampton by the end of August so fits with your delivery date of early September.

One to keep an eye on!

The timetable for these ships loosely follows a pattern so they depart Dalian during the 1st and 3rd/4th week in a calendar month, essentially 2 ships per month. So if you've missed this one then you'll be waiting another 2 weeks or so for a ship to visit Dalian. It can be frustrating as the timing for me meant I had to wait over 2 weeks after my car finished production to be put on a boat and is still on it 6 weeks later.

Throughout all this I've learnt a thing or two about global shipping so it's been beneficial and as many who already have their iX3 will attest, it'll definitely be worth the wait!
Told by a genius today that 165 means it is on way from China to Bremerhaven and will only update to 195 once left Bremerhaven on way to uk. Hopefully they are right which will mean mine is on Orion left on the 3rd July.

There is some inconsistency with these codes and also what the Genius team tell you. For me, 165 meant the car had been produced and was sat at the factory in China (Genius were telling me my car was on its way from USA to Bremerhaven!). It then went to 193 when it had arrived at the port in Dalian (which is about 250 miles from the factory) then to 195 when it was loaded onto the ship.

If you ask your dealer for the VIN, you can then do a VIN check online which will tell you the official production date. If that date is before about 1st July then your car should be on the Grand Orion.

https://www.mdecoder.com is what I used to get my production date.

OK so mine has changed from 193 to 195 today, so I'm guessing it's on the Grand Orion which apparently left Dalian 2 days ago.

My build date is June 30th, is that too tight to make the grand Orion? Is the build date the day production starts or finishes?

May be a bit ambitious - I know mine took 16 days from completion of build to arrival in Dalian.

You're right. I asked the dealer, it's status 160.

As I attached an image on the 2nd page of this thread (and have been following it since then), my code is still 165. BUT, according to my dealer, it is in transit over sea. My dealer, basically, says the same as some genius-operators, just that he isn't saying it is coming from the USA, lol.

Now, according to the capture screen he made from his internal browsing, I got the code 160 on the 4th of May and then 165 on the 9th of May.

I do not have an accurate delivery date; he just said: "by August."

mdecoder matches my production date with code 160 (the 4th of May), but from my understanding, the factory had it built on the 16th of April.

Anyway, there is nothing I can do... just to wait
