So, what do they do with the keys for each vehicle? I guess they have to leave the cars unlocked, but that means stowaways can hide in the cars. Just made me wonder where the keys are...

Thanks for the picture. I've been following it, too. My MCS is on the Manon, also. It is due to reach Port Hueneme on 6/10. Hopefully, it won't get hung-up there. The 2012 Mini I have now reached Port Hueneme on 10/5/2011 and I picked it up on 10/11/2011.

All,

If you want to track your ship's progress (and you know its name, natch) in as close to real time as you can, try this wee AIS tracking website.
https://www.marinetraffic.com

You may loose positions when the vessel is "deep sea" as AIS works on radio, but it gives updated speed/heading/destination info all for free :)

Well, My 2015 F56 JCW has now arrived on US soil and is currently being processed at the Port Hueneme Vehicle Distribution Center. So far it has taken a total of 53 days from the date of order.

And yet...these last few days seem like they shall be the most trying in terms of patience...

My MCS is there, too. The MA said it should reach the dealer by 18th or 19th, but I'm not sure that is accurate since I'm having some accessories added.

I would have thought that the accessories would have been installed at the dealer?

But here's to having our new MINIs soon! Hopefully, it's going to be a great weekend for us both this weekend! I hope to see some pictures!

Yes, that's what I thought too, but apparently, things have changed. The accessories (roof decal, mirror caps, scuttles,etc.) were installed by the dealer on my 2008 and 2012 Mini, but now I'm told that they would be installed at the VDC. This was confirmed by my MA, and the accessories were listed on the order detail on the Mini Owner's Lounge. If I find anything different, I'll let you know.

How do you find out which ship your MINI is on???

Mine just left the port in Europe, bound for the USA....most likely NYC Port of Entry.

Have you taken delivery yet Sandylp? It's 6/19 now, and I haven't heard anything. My Owners Lounge states that it was supposed to arrive 6/18, but it's status is still list as at the distribution center. :(

This sucks...
