Trips are slower from WW yes because boats travel first to NJ, dock and undock then go to SC after that.

However, the the bigger issue seems to be that much fewer boats go to SC than NJ...it seems that half the boats that go to NJ eventually make the trip down to SC so you have half the chances to catch the right boat.

Congrats L!!

I think that's what happened to me. If my car gets on the Integrity, which is scheduled to leave tomorrow, it won't make it to Charleston until 3/29. And that is after it makes a stop in NY/NJ.

My ship is lost; the captain might be on drugs! It left Germany on the 8th and headed EAST to Sweden. I am glad it stopped short of Finland, and turned around, but now it is in Belgium.

Hopefuly the captain will soon realize that the most important destination is to the WEST!

It is now behind original schedule by 2 days; should be in NY on the 24th.

Thanks. I saw the email come in on my laptop while I was in a serious meeting with a bunch of people, and jumped up and yelled "YESSS!" as they were trying to figure out what was going on. I have so much to do at work, and can barely keep myself from dashing out regardless to check out the car...

Awesome news! Congrats!!!

Why can't the title be there on time? Sucks you have to wait for the car over the weekend.

So how many days from the boat docking till it got to your dealer?

My CA said the title is sent to the dealer from BMW. Since things happened 2-3 days ahead of schedule, he doubts that the title will be here tomorrow. And, he can't register the car without the title or something to that effect.

The first line in the WW website for NY turned red Monday noon, so I must assume my car was unloaded sometime Monday morning, and it got to my dealer Thursday morning. 3 days exactly. Fast, ha?

That is quite fast, that means your car unloaded, finished VPC and is now ready for you at your dealer all in 3 days right?

Guys, thanks for sharing my excitement!

I ended up running out of my office at 6 pm, and made it to the dealer by 7 to check out the car (it showed up early so I was caught off guard without my Nikon, which means no pics). It was kind of getting dark, and my CA was with another client, but he did hand me the keys and point at the door, and said I had until 8. So, I ran out into the parking lot, which was huge and had lots of cars on it. I looked around for 15 seconds, and quickly spotted MY M3! It was parked in between two 335 coupes, and boy, did it dwarf them in appearance. I ran up to it in disbelief, couldn't slow myself down and ended up running in circles. The car looks fucking awesome! JB/FR/CF rules big time!!!!!! I am so glad I chose this color combo. It looks good in pictures, and is even much better in person. Then I sat inside, and couldn't help screaming "Yeah!" at the top of my voice by myself. There were a couple of guys walking around who looked at me rather funny to say the least. For the next 20 minutes, I messed with this and that until the engine warmed up, and gave it a few throttle blips. OMFG! Nothing like the sound of very your own M3.

So, now the reeaallly painful part begins. Sitting around and waiting until Monday for the paperwork to show up.

Would the Police have anything on me if I were to steal my own car?
