According to this

your MB will arrive at Panama Canal 4/8 and transit on the 11th. More delays.

it says arriving on the 8th, probably means exiting the canal on 11th? if this is the case then no delays?

idk, i dont care anymore... fuck madame butterfly, fuck bmw, fuck m3

i think if more delays happen i will just go and buy one off the lot

I JUST GOT THIS EMAIL FROM MY CA:

"Your car is scheduled to arrive at the port on 4/6/08. It typically will arrive at the dealer from 3-5 days after that."

That means Butterfly is arriving ahead of schedule and there's a delay.

that just made my day

well I was thinking it is either correct or a typo and she meant to say 16 and not6 or she doesn't know shit and in all three cases your ca can confirm. Keep me posted I have a lot of hope on this
