Grand Mercury Anyone?

Just found out by searching the Wallenius Wilhelmsen website with my VIN number that my M3 is on the Grand Mercury.

Anyone else on the same boat? Should be in Brunswick, Georgia on 7 May and then onward to Performance Center Delivery!

Making a pitstop in the UK I see...nice I actually rather liked South Hampton when I was there. That's what where the Top Gear Museum is.

Ha!! Tracking the ship's every move... I remember those days! Just wait till it leaves Southampton and then drops out of sight. Then the days get really long until she comes back into range of the US. What is your car's port of entry? My car arrived at New Brunswick, GA before being trucked to New Orleans.

Yes, I am on the boat. Did ED on 4/2 and dropped off on 4/10 in Munich. Supposedly it will arrive in NJ port on 5/2 before moving south. Cannot wait to take US delivery.

My wife caught me three times tonight tracking this ship..... I waited this long, whats another week or two?

The vessel has made its way to NY Harbor, where mine is being offloaded. Any idea on lead time from port to dealer?? I'm thinking I wont see it till early next week.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen to find out the name of the ship and then just Google: "vessel (insert ship name here)"
