Does anybody know? <p>Iwas thinking there may be a web site to track a vehicles production thru the assembly line to shipping to delivery....kind of like UPS does.

Re: Can you track production if you have a VIN? (peak)

A coworker ordered a Mini and said they email him a web camera link with the time his car was being assembled. I've also been hoping for something like this. Mid July ETA but have heard nothing on actual production date. Another thread here gave info on tracking from on the ship to delivery, after you get the VIN.

Re: Can you track production if you have a VIN? (stuvo)

peak............<p>About the only way you will know a "timeline" for your car...will be if your dealer will keep you up to speed as he/she gets info from their Daily Activity Report. <br>To be candid....I try to give my customers an update when there is a status change...like loaded on the vessel or arrived at the port...if they want me to....but all that information doesn't get the car here any quicker and if there is a delay at the port that is out of my control....I don't want my customers getting all bent out of shape worrying about something.<p>But...as of now, there is not a way for you to "track" a car in production....maybe that is something tha we should recommend to the Overseas Delivery Dept. as an additional "perk".... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Thanks for the idea <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Can you track production if you have a VIN? (universityvolvoOSD)

Anyone have any real life info on how long the shipping takes? My dealer emailed last week and said my car was "Factory Complete". Checked the cargo vessel web site today and it says my car was "loaded on vessel" today. Do they use a slow or fast boat <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> ? Thanks!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

But "your" vessel could be stopping at Southampton, Ghent and/or Liverpool in order to pick up more vehicles. Add another 5 days to the trip. Your car will be unloaded at Port Baltimore. Add another 2 days. But, most importantly, all C70s arriving at any port are locked down for upgrades. I hear up to a 7-day delay. <p>You will be getting your car by June 30, at the earliest.<p>Yannis

Hey Yannis, do you know if the vessels usually come straight to Baltimore Port or make other stops. I haven't been able to get a ship location since 6/11. Thanks... PS. An hour after my last post, my dealer called and move the ETA to 6/28/06. Getting excited although I have a cast on my right leg from my knee down and probably won't even be able to drive my new car home <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/mad.gif" BORDER="0">
