All the first DCT cars were on there. Now the cars produced later in March (or cleared QC later in that week) will be the first ones here.

On the bright side is that the problem was found before it was too late and may have left the boat stranded, or even worse problems.

Really bad news, but it is good the problem was found early. This could be my lucky day, done with production, on the way to the port! Maybe it was the BMW gods giving the spiritual leader of the M-DCT club a small break in life.

You should have thought of that before you tipped that boat a few months back!
