Is it saying that there are 575 BMWs on it? and 399 MINIs? Curious how to interpret that chart.

Not sure, but the live map is back, and it's moving at 7 knots.

Oh. If you look at the live map, the SUNLIGHT ace has left and is leaving Port Hueneme. That shp was on the schedule for Oct 20. So there should be room for the Toreador to arrive.

I presume that they're going to be driving the cars off the ship almost as I'm typing this, since it's supposed to leave at 8AM tomorrow That means my M will have its engine on this evening... vroooooooooooooooom

Varies on how many cars are in front of you, if your car has transportation damage, etc. It can take up to 2 weeks .. but that should be the maximum.

I doubt it will be two weeks. My CA said to expect the car late tomorrow or Saturday. And I'm about 400 miles away from the VPC.

Yes it doesn't usually take 2 weeks. Thats the maximum time it should take if there is damage. Usually takes no more than 5 days. Can't wait to see all the new

The Elektra will dock on the 26th so I hope I can get my car by the first week of November. I'm doubtful though since I have some minor damage.

I wonder if the truck comes up I-5 or 101. Will my dealer in Pleasanton be the first Bay Area to get these deliveries, or the last?

I hope they really deliver the cars early, all I know is i will never order a car form century west bmw again, absolutely the most horrible dealer in the world, they truly made me disgusted from ordering a new car, They dont give me any info, they truly dont care about customer service. My brother and I ordered 2 m3's early july, at the same time so we can get them together, which the dealer guaranteed me would happen, next thing i know he calls me saying my car will take two weeks longer.
My brothers car has been here since september 4 and im still waitng, and when I call they just brush me off. All i can say is never again...

Doh! Got tired of waiting for the call from the dealer. My salesman is not in today, but will be in tomorrow. I hope that means my car will be ready tomorrow. Gonna go to the dealer anyway in an hour and stalk them and see if my car got offloaded somewhere...

I talked to my SA today and he said he contacted VPC this morning. Supposedly the cars weren't unloaded at the port until yesterday and were being processed through customs this morning. He said I should see my car sometime early/mid next week at the earliest (my car is getting the performance spoiler installed there).
