Mine LSB e92 is on its way also! Estimated arrival date of June 21st to port Hueneme. Does anyone know how long it takes to get to dealer after arriving at the port?

Yeah I was trying to keep the ship tracker up but after an hour or so of mindless web surfing trying to wait for it to get to the locks I gave up becuase it was only half way through at that point.

First, congrats. Almost there. Once it arrives at the VPC it could be loaded onto the truck within 2-3 days. This will depend on if there's work required or customs check (with Euro delivery).

I found this article to be interesting with explaining the process at the VPC http://www.thedieseldriver.com/2010/02/bmw-vdc/.

2 shots of TURANDOT as she crosses under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge at 5:22 AM ET en route to Port Newark.

1 shot from eazy over at Bimmerfest of TURANDOT docked at Port Newark.

Your car gets off the ship before the storm hits tomorrow! Lucky dog!

Considering the 37 (or so) days at the port of exit, 1 extra day at sea, I'm due for some degree of luck.

Side question, are you planning your schedule around getting the webcam pictures? I do appreciate it.

Yeah... these have not been very productive work weeks for me... minus the week on the Atlantic where we got no tracking updates, I've been searching harbor schedules and planning my life around being in front of my computer when the ships pass.

Nova Scotia was the easiest... I didn't have to be awake for that one... I could roll back the last 24 hours on demand.

This will be the closest I will be to my car since April 26th and still probably more than a month to go before PCD. Can't schedule it until the car leaves customs and the VPC for the performance exhaust install, so looking like a mid-July delivery if the storm doesn't set back the June 10th arrival at Brunswick, GA.

Congrats on getting off the boat. Trust me - you will be glad to have hung on!

Almost there. I feel like I ordered two cars after watching so closely for yours to come in. Must feel great knowing its on US ground. Your car should be priority 1+++ after all the time you waited.

Do they have to install the performance exhaust at the VPC or is it going to be done at the dealership?

The MPE will be installed at the dealership. The kidney grilles, I believe, will be done at the VPC.

It has been a long journey..almost at the finish line.

FWIW, I appreciate the efforts you spent taking the webcam shots. Thank you.

Mine has left the port and scheduled to arrive on the 21st or 26th. I was told the dealer should have it before July 4th, but I will pick it up after July 4th, as I have bad luck on July 4th...

Turandot on the move to its next port. I think this is the one near Jersey City.

EDIT: Here's Turandot (left) entering the Hudson River waterway towards the Northeast Auto Terminal at 5:58PM ET. That's Manhattan and 1 World Trade Center on the right.

It is. But lots of trade offs living here. The wait isn't too bad since you go into the deal knowing its going to take some time. The ships to Hawaii from the west coast are pretty fast. About 5 days on the water.
