Who's been sitting at the dock the longest right now?

Completed production on the 25th, still waiting for a ride to the States... it's killing me! Makes you wonder how the shipments get out of order in the first place.

9 days is not that long. Both my cars were 10 days. It takes a few days to get the car to the port, then it depends on ship timing and capacity.

Yea, according to that poll, it takes about 1-2 weeks.

Yeah, you're right... every day just feels like a week right now. I need to keep things in perspective, though, it was many weeks before my E46 M3 hit 150 and this time I hit it like five days after placing my order.

Somehow I have been there since the 16th of Feb. God knows why I haven't left yet. This blows. I have no idea why I haven't left, a boat left yesterday for Charleston and again I was not on it!

This seems to be the most uncertain part of the process. My car was finished on Friday and didn't reach the dock until today. Hopefully I'll be on a ship soon but hard to tell - seems pretty random...
