The update is that it did go back to Europe because of an electrical problem and is now scheduled to dock in NY on April 11th.

Wow, that must have been some problem for them to turn it around instead of just completing the voyage. The costs of this are in the millions for sure.

That's a shame...sorry guys. I'm sure they had a good reason for turning around. If they didn't trun around, your cars may have been in jeopardy, so try to wait it out.

Holy Shiite!! My boat turned around. It appreared that it had turned around on the tracking software but I was sure it was a glitch in the system, since it's voluntary and done manually.

This blows. Wow. I was only joking about the boat being ugly.

I guess I won't be writing the first US based review of DCT. Fifth, it's back to you buddy.

Reminds me of a quote from National Lampoon's Vacation "We're three hours from the effing fun park, and you guys want to turn around and go home."

I feel you buddy, it seems like nothing has gone smoothly. Either delay this or that.

I will be my honor to take that roll~

I was doing so well at work today, I was being productive and not distracted by the car at all. Until I read this news.

This sucks.

Wow...that really sucks. My M-DCT is arriving in South Carolina in 2 days (3/29) and then will need to clear VPC and come to Houston. So, I'm looking to get it as early as a week from saturday. I'm going to pick it up in with my friend(drives E-46 with SMG) and we'll drive the two back to back to give a better comparison.
