Greg, I agree but waiting this long and having your car sitting there is killing me, you probably have the same experience. They have not scheduled a date yet and I called my SA to find out and she has not updated me yet. Going to the factory and having professional drivers teach me how to tame this beast is going to be an experience worthwhile to the wait. Having such a great car and not being able to drive it properly is a huge waste.

Does anyone one else have their car on the Phoenix Leader?

I can not find any info on the ship's whereabouts... I hear it left Bremerhaven on the 27th and should be in Port Hueneme on the 24th?

I looked on the NYK line site but they don't even list it as one of their vessels...

Did you try WW Lines? That's who BMW seems to be using for West coast lately. http://schedule.2wglobal.com/AppTrac...trackType=Auto

Well, it is an NYK lines ship:

Phoenix Leader improves tranportation efficiency by improving wind resistance and ballast water levels:

Hey thanks again Greg!

OK, so it is an NYK ship, The bill of lading tracking method doesn't seem to work. Now at least I know I can call them later and hopefully get some info...

Yours should be here any day now, correct, Greg?

Looks like I'm on the K-Line Caribbean Highway, scheduled to dock in Charleston on the 20th! Was hoping to get on a WW boat, but I'll survive...

My ship quit reporting to sailwx after clearing the canal 3/2. I can only comfort in the fact that it should dock in California tomorrow. Hang in there!

No live cams. BTW, jinxter's dealer jacked him around and wanted a markup, so he bought a car elsewhere.

Falstaff is on the schedule for tomorrow:

Yes, you got it, but he's got a car close to what he wanted.

Ya My "family friend" was out for him self apparently. either that or his manager just woudnt let him. Just pissed me off that he told me he was going to give me MSRP back when I put down my deposit and 2 weeks prior to boat arriving he Hints my markup while he was telling me about another customers markup. Lol he was pissed when I canceled the order. Tryed to act all like it was just business. I wonder how long that car will sit on their lot for now. Oh he gave me the impression that he didnt belive I found one for MSRP. Gonna stop by today to find out about my deposit return with the new car. I really wish they didnt Jerk me around. I had a lot of faith in them.

I got everything I wanted except I got blue aluminum trim and 19 inch wheels. Now that I can see the car in person I think the blue aluminum actually works out better then carbon weave considering I have extended black leather. Gives the car a bit more life.
