Anyone else on the Altair Leader?

I did ED on 9/26 and dropped her off in Hamburg on Oct. 4.

I've been told my car is on Altair Leader... due to arrive in Port Hueneme on 11/9.

Anyone else?

Funny, I did Euro Delivery for a Mercedes I got and I left it at the Bayerischer Hof in Munich on Sept. 23. I just found out that it's on the Altair Leader and should be in Long Beach by Nov. 10.

I obviously found this thread through Google, lol.

Nice. I see you have an M5 and a GT-R as well... geez man. That should make the wait a little easier.

What benz did you pick up? Does Mercedes offer good euro delivery deals?

The BMW experience was amazing. Recommended.

Thanks! The wait for us is going to be a while! lol. I can't believe that you dropped yours off on the 4th and I dropped mine off on the 23rd of Sept. and they both left on the same boat. I guess next time, I'm dropping it off closer to Bremerhaven!

I just got a C250 Coupe with every option. I wanted something new with a lot of tech that gets great gas mileage. The M5 is my DD and I'm really scared taking it around valets and my GT-R is an attention magnet, so this is a nice change of pace. The deal wasn't too great, but I was one of the first in North America to get a C-Class Coupe and it's the car I wanted. Also, they gave me six nights at different 5 star hotels of my choice for only $1300 as part of one of their ED packages. I'm not sure if BMW offers that, but that was definitely key.

The experience was amazing and I was able to even take a visit to BMW M and BMW Classic, so that was awesome. BMW M's hospitality was amazing.

I'm definitely doing it again. Either for the new M6 or another Mercedes.

If you're interested, here's my thread on MBWorld:

to the wait!

actually they all average about the same speed of under 15 knots. It seems slow because once they leave landfall and are out of reach of the tracking beacons, it seems like they are not moving. you'll see that line "track" again when it comes closer to the East Coast, probably 7 to 8 days from now. Mine just went out of range (UNDINE) and should be trackable once near Cuba.

Btw, Marine Tracker has an Iphone app.....it's pretty sick

Go here:
http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shi...MMSI=432817000

You'll notice it hasn't reported position for over 11 days.

It also says:
Destination: >PA CTB
ETA: 2011-10-29 05:00

I assume that's the Panama Canal or something close on 10/29. Let's hope!

Mine is just getting unloaded today, lol.

Yeah, the boat was in Port Hueneme the past couple days, so I assume my car got unloaded while it was there.

The BMW number still says "In Transit". I assume it has to go through customs as well as USDA inspection. May take a little while to do so.

My car is on the UNDINE too. It's ETA to reach Port Hueneme is 17 Nov, so I think I have a little more waiting to do

cullan, did you get your car already?

I just heard from my dealer today that my car just got released from the VPC and should be at the dealer within 48 hours.
