      Does anyone know what kind of terminology VW uses in the order system?

      My car was originally slated to leave Emden on the 15th, and arrive into Halifax on the 25th. I checked the other day to see if it was built and left the factory, and the status is "in transit from factory" which they say means it's on the ship in the ocean somewhere. This doesn't make sense with the dates of this particular ship, but there is a ship coming to Halifax that left Emden on the 7th, but it's not supposed to be on that ship. If the car is sitting at Emden waiting, does the status normally say something like "awaiting at departure port?". If it basically says "in transit from factory" as soon as it leaves Wolfsburg I guess I can assume it will be on the second ship.

      As soon as your car is built and factory inspected, the status changes to "Intransit from Factory". It stays that way from the factory to the port, to the ship, and until it is unloaded at the US port, when it changes to "Port Stock".

      Ok, so it's safe to assume it will be on the Precious Ace leaving on the 15th, along with joetron's car .

      Paul any idea if any other ports besides Emden processes US bound Volkswagens? Also would the ordering dealer know which port the vehicle is coming in through on US soil?

      Your car has got to be on the SL, I don't know what else it could be on. Maybe it's just a few days ahead of schedule, because that logistics sheet was made up in September it looks like. It also says US East is definately Brunswick.

      Edit: Double check with your dealer, they will absolutely know which port the car comes in, they probably check stock there almost every day.

Which goes back to the original question of this thread. Are we sure that 100% of VW cars are shipped from Emden? I've found two different Ro-Ro ports in Zeebrugge that list VW as references.

      My research revealed all NAR Golf/GTI cars are loaded at Emden.

      There are indeed other VW badges loaded at other ports in the area, but our cars are shiped via rail from Wolfsburg to Emden.

      Here's another idea:

      Go to your dealer (or call him/her) and check the window stickers of Golfs/GTIs for the port of entry. That should settle the "which port is it arriving at?" question, letting you track back to the proper ship.

      Another tip: Money talks when trying to get your car out of the port.

      When my ship arrived, I asked Mico how to expedite the port process. Sold/Paid orders get some sort of priority at the port, which mine did. As soon as I wrote the check, Mico faxed the paperwork to the port.

      My original ETAs:
      Rel. to Carrier (Port) 12/21/2009
      Dealer Delivered Week of 01/04/2010

      I picked up the car on December 15.

      There is a website that the dealers can check for shipping info, but I have never known the password, or anybody else that had the password, and honestly just never cared, since I know where my cars are.

      IIRC, you are in Florida, right? Your car will definitely go through Brunswick. Brunswick handles the southeastern states. Houston handles cars for the southwest and central states. We get ours from Rhode Island, and San Diego handles the west coast.

      Except for Washington apparently -- I just heard from my rep who confirmed that all cars bound for Seattle arrive at port in Houston. Kinda weird that it wouldn't be SD -- it must be cheaper to rail them up here from Houston somehow...

      Rail is FAR less expensive than trucking from San Diego. A lot less damage, too.

      I know this is a bit off-topic, but I stumbled across this article about the salvage operation of the 'Cougar Ace' on Wired. Incredibly well written article...totally worth the read if you have a few minutes to kill.

      Cougar Ace was the ship that ended up on its side with over 4,000 Mazdas on board. Yikes.

      Excellent reading material. I find it hard to believe that a car sitting at a 60 degree angle for so long could have issues down the road. They could've at least sold them at auction.

      Pshh, forget the Precious Ace....It's all about the Athens Highway!! Which...apparently is now anchored near Brixham...which as far as I can tell is a small fishing town. I don't think they are loading cars there. Maybe they are picking up some cheap hookers after their voyage across the Atlantic? HURRY UP AND GET ON TO EMDEN!!

      hmm it looks like it's sailing right past emden and not turning into the port even though emden is listed as it's final destination. Unless there's a specific lane it has to follow to go into port. It looks like the cosmos venture is going to beat it to port.

      Yeah looks like it's going somewhere else first?

      This is hilarious, stalking a boat. I can't believe how many boats are in the North Sea, friggin crazy

      Ya, the Athens Highway had Emden listed as "next destination" -- and then it stopped in some stupid fishing town in England where it has been sitting all day. SHAKES FIST!

      Well, I would imagine Emden has more than one dock for these things. It's not supposed to leave there until the 15th I think so there is a bit of time to go.

      True, but there is only one narrow entrance into the port with all the docks and i'm sure only one ship can go through at a time, but right now it looks like it's not even turning into port.

      No way man, it's following my red line. Either that or it's got a bone to pick with that little purple boat.

      Seriously -- that little purple boat is probably pooping in its little purple boat pants right now. Those Ro/Ro ships are freakin' huge.

      I did a little research and the reason it waited so long to turn around is because it's following a specific approach. It appears to be the Jade approach. I can't find a good online nautical chart to post.

      HAH! It's following my red line perfectly, my plan is coming to fruition.

      But, this red boat seems to be halfway through the Ace's hull at this point

      Edit: I have to lol at "Borkum"
