My car just rolled....

My car just rolled off the boat in the Port of Charleston. It will be interesting to see how long it will take to get to the VPC and how many days it will take to go from there to Houston.

Mduvall, my dad went to go check on my car and ran into a truck driver from SC. He said he drove it in 24 hours bc he felt like it. Crazy. Of course he was not my driver but basically you are getting hooked up by a sweet driver or they will take their sweet freaking time. again hit or miss

I think it is very possible. My CA said that once the car hits the shores it should be in Houston within 7 days. That said....there is always the unknown of delays. But it is possible.......

I spoke with Ricardo this morning and he had no further update. I know Emden has come and gone from Charleston so my car is sitting around there someplace...

Any new news? I spoke to my CA this am about cars arriving in SC and then getting transported to Houston. I bought through BMW Woodlands and my car should be in SC on the 29th. I asked him if it would be in Houston 7 days later on the 4th and he said that there is only about a 20% chance of that happening. I hope he is wrong.

Got an email yesterday from Ricardo and all it said was that my car was on the train and that it would reach Spartanburg today. I think it is safe to say that it will not make it to Houston this weekend.
My guess is maybe middle of next week.

Congratulations. I'm hoping my sedan will begin production next week (after 5 week delay). Saw my first M3 (coupe) in the wild today in Dallas.

May be a bit longer. I think both of our cars are on the Integrity and from what I've heard, it hasn't docked in NY yet. So it's at least a day behind schedule. Oh the agony....
