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."
Skierman, I was going to call or PM you to let you know, but I didn't want to ruin your day. I figured you were out of town since I hadn't seen any posts from you. Hopefully your DCT M3 won't be delayed too long...I'm dying to check out your car!!

It is what it is. Nothing I can do about it.

You're not the first one to ask!

Sorry about your situation. At least you're staying positive about it.

eh, it happens with UPS/FedEx packages sometimes too, right?
hey at least it's not that boat last year that tipped (listed is the proper term I believe) during unloading and damaged a bunch of cars (including some new M3s).

If you guys could talk to that ship, you could say:

"I just want my car, man, Elektra!"

Has anyone heard anything new on this? The date the ship is supposed to leave Europe keeps slipping, and there is nothing about arrival in NY:



Voyage Details

Vessel: ELEKTRA
Voyage: EA811-ELX

The sailing schedule and ports of call are subject to change without notice.
Note: Red ports of call means the vessel has already sailed.
[]


Port Country Arrival Departure

BREMERHAVEN GERMANY 14/03/2008 15/03/2008
GOTHENBURG SWEDEN 16/03/2008 17/03/2008
ZEEBRUGGE BELGIUM 19/03/2008 21/03/2008

Sounds like the cars may have been transferred to the Mignon, which leaves Belgium 4/1 and arrives in NY on 4/10, but I am trying to confirm with my CA.

BJJ, welcome to the club. I'd love to hear our cars got transferred to another ship.

We need to get you on the DCT production roll call. There are about 12 of us on there with March DCT production.

BTW, I like your avatar.

I wish I was rich enough to charter a plane to get my car here tomorrow.
