Dude, if my car was en route I would probably being doing the same thing.

Speaking of which, how do you know what ship it is on and how do you track the ship

Cool, unfortunately “my car” is yet to be ordered. My current car, Audi S4, lease is up in November. So I am placing my order late Summer for an October delivery.

Is the PL set to arrive on the 10th or the 8th?

Looks like this was accurate

Today's schedule shows PL as having sailed yesterday at 3pm:

http://www.sdmis.org/schedule/

I was a bit worried about the accuracy given that it didn't even show the Boheme although it goes out to ships arriving as late as 6/28.

Whoops

I'm an idiot. This was San Diego ... not Port Hueneme. Probably still looking at the 10th.

Doesn't look like it. That's why I was not certain about the accuracy of the schedule. To make matters worse a post on E90Post stated that NOW PL is headed towards the Longbeach port before proceeding to Port Hueneme.

So that's why the speedier ship is going to be second in the port on 6/10 I'm guessing.

its going to be a close race. PL should have hit the LB today and PL tomorrow on time. Boheme still looked to be two days from PH yesterday.

Mines as the VPC today...set to ship out to the dealer on the 15th, arrives early on the 17th and I pick it up on the 18th!!

So I guess 3 extra days for Norcal isn't that bad....

CONGRATS! You bastich. Up here in Seattle my last quote for dealer delivery was 6/20. Hey you're getting a DCT right? One worry I have is that my DCT may be subject to the fan recall and be delayed longer. Did you confirm/deny if your car was in that class?
