It's cool guys, remember, you still have 1 month of break-in driving ahead of you!

under 5500 rpm, under 100 mph, no fun. And you know that hot chick in the office that knows you're getting the car and is gonna ask for a ride on your first week of ownership, and you have to tell her that your car has a limp dick b/c you have to keep it under 5500 rpms....think about it.
Will you at least visit me at the insane asylum?

Congrats!

I've been looking at the boat schedules over the next couple of weeks (my car just started production), and it looks like there's a good chance the BESS will be taking my car back as well, as she leaves Bremerheven again on April 2nd, and arrives on the West Coast April 30th. Will be interesting to see if she's the one.

Hope you guys treat her well....

So after it's landed at the port it takes about a week at the prep center and then they send it out to dealership via carrier? I asked my dealership and they say they do not have accurate date of arrival. Need to schedule detailer for new car prep after delivery :-)

Did you have any accessories installed at port? Steering wheel? Spoiler?

If not, I would grill them on whether or not it had work done at port (causing the delay). Not likely to be a big deal - but good have documented.
