Another Ship wreck?

Just saw this over at m3forum.net

http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=200942

apparently there is another ship wreck that was carrying 1ers and E92 M3s.

Dont know how true this is but the OP said his sales guy confirmed it.

Anyone hear anything about this?

Fifth, I would phrase the title of this thread as a question rather than a statement. There is absolutely nothing to confirm another wreck at this time apart from one guy posting to ask about it and saying a sales guy said something about it as well. Very vague. I am not saying it is not true, but it could very well be a rumor. Judging from how fast information travels to this forum, I kind of doubt we were not in on this here for several days (the linked thread claims it happened last week).

You and I should be okay even if it is true since our cars are built. It would suck for people waiting in the production line though...

Hey, dont go posting threads with titles like that the day before my car lands!!! I'll bet it's a rehash of the one a month ago.

LOL. It would suck for those who were actually on that boat. Potentially this guy!

Does anyone know what boat that was on if it's true?

Ah, I know exactly where my car is. Collecting dust in bimmerheaven. Did yours finally emerge from beneath the docks and hop on a ship?

LOL yeah apparently my CA said it was in B-haven when it was actually in the water. It due to dock tommorow. Hopefully that is true considering the ship I am on doesn't like to give live updates!

That's really cool actually. Congrats.

Were you not able to see it on a ship when you typed your VIN online at the shipping company's website?

I hope this is just a bunch of old info. I have an e92 coupe 328i that left Bremerhaven on a K line ship called the Emden last Sunday due for Charleston on the 15th. I know there were some 1 series vehicles on that ship also because some people over on 1 addicts forum have some cars on that ship also. Fingers crossed. This cant be happening

Mine is there too....I think they'll both make it onto the ship that leaves Tuesday. I think it is the Integrity...and may Poseidon have mercy on her

Lol, that posted by myself on the other forum.

It WAS A QUESTION, LOL!!! And it was NOT a repost to the initial wreck a month ago.

I would think by how fast word travels, we would find out if this was indeed BS or not.

As mentioned, two separate individuals confirmed this and the intent of my post was to see if others have heard this as well.

I'll see if my buddy(the auto broker) can send me something substantial; and I will also ask my CA for support as well.

My car leaves port on monday, so I can only pray she makes it over here in one piece.

So...no one freak out, and let's sit tight and see what you can find out as well.
