Surprisingly cronus leader is in the arrival schedule at San Diego port for May 21 (http://www.sdmis.org/schedule/) .... Don't know why it stops at San Diego....If they dock my car in San Diego port, I would be happy to drive home my baby ....

I could be wrong, but do not beleive that these ships only carry BMWS - I think they carry about 6,000 cars. My guess is that they will off load some non BMW cars and then off load you car at Port Hueneme. Then your car will go to the VDC in Oxnard and from there to your dealer

If you are trading a car into them, they should lock in your trade value or take the trade in now and give you a loaner until your car arrives. That would at least save you some depreciation and I would now push for the performance exhaust.

My Sales Mgr informed today that my M3 is still at the port. Accordingly, it will be loaded on the next vessel scheduled to depart on 5/22.

As of today, it has been at the port for 32 days.

Regarding a need for a vehicle, on that front timing actually worked out well for me. My wife bought a new crossover and I took over her former vehicle and use it as my daily. The M3 is going to be used as a fun car. But I would be driving it now if it was in my garage.
Here are a couple of pics. Also posted them in the LMB section of official color thread. Love the IND painted reflectors and LUX V4 lights. Of course the car is fantastic.

OneRib, what a beautiful car. Great color choice (with the LMB). Congrats!

What color setting did you set the LUX V4's to?

Thanks NHman. Only thing that stinks is I got the conti tires, but so far they seem good to me.

Right now I have them set on 5700K. Not sure if I am going to leave it there. I really like the fact that I can adjust them. Glad I didn't get the 5000K, but the 6500K may be a little to blue for some. If your debating on it, either stick with stock or get the V4. You won't be sorry.

Hopefully Wednesday is the day for your car. I am rooting for you.

Sagittarius Leader has been out of range for 7 days. Last position was passing to the west of the Azores She just popped up off the coast of PR. Should be in range now until she goes through the canal. Going to try to watch her sail through the locks on the canal's webcam. I wonder how long she will have to wait at the canal for her turn to go through. Looks like a lot of ships waiting in both directions
