Excellent! You car was on the Asteria Leader right? I recall us having a chat about it...Just trying to gauge how long it took from unloading at Southampton to you taking delivery.

Yup, it was on the Asteria Leader and unloaded in Southampton on the 23rd. So just 10 days or so from arrival.

Can anyone take a wild guess at what vessel my vehicle is likely to be on based on the following update from UK Genius (update provided today)

"The order status is in transit to Bremmerhaven. Estimated delivery week is the week commencing September 5th"

I got a pre-configured stock car, so I have no idea when the original order was made. I put the deposit down in early May when the car was already on the boat! So nice and quick for me but no choice on colour.

Carbon Black with Black interior. If I had the choice I would have perhaps gone for the Blue exterior but it would have been close.

I like the cream leather, but with 2 young kids I probably wouldn't have got it even if I had the choice.

Ask them what the status code is. If itís 195 and has been from before about 8th June then your car should be in the Cygnus Leader.

Just checked in with genius this morning. Code is 165 - transit from china to brem. Apparently it changed today but I wonder how this can be if they said that it was on its way to brem a few days ago. Confused but very happy to know that it is at least Made and in transit!

165 for me was when it was being transported from the factory to the port of Dalian. When it was put on the boat, it then changed to 195.
Mine finished being built on the 11th of may if I remember correctly, and turned to 165 very quickly. It stayed at 165 until the 5th of June I believe when it was loaded on the boat, which I think is the Phoenix leader. Mine is due for delivery to me on the 1st of August.

Hope this helps.

Itís the Capricornus Leader. It left Dalian on 23rd May so your car should be on it. Itís been delayed a few days so itís due into Southampton on 10th July now.

Hello,

Another NYK Lines ship, Grand Orion is on the way to Dalian according to https://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels...MMSI-371798000

However, I cannot find the schedule for this vessel at the moment, maybe one to keep an eye on?

Many thanks,
Appreciate 2

I would be really interested in this as well, as spoke to the dealer this morning and my Ix3 has been produced but not on a ship yet. Expected delivery to me is early September. Thanks.

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!

I have spoken to BMW genius and also BMW UK cust services today for a firmer update on my car.

It is still status 195, having not changed since 24/05/22 (exit from port). It is showing as due to arrive at Dealer w/c 25/07/22, although could be subject to change.

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 :-)
