This is killing me. My car got into the NY port on the 22nd and it still hasn't been released! Is that normal? My dealer said it is. It could still get here by the end of the week since he said they want to get them shipped to count for the month?

Hope you get your car by this weekend....I took delivery of my 6MT MW M3 last week...Do some research about the maintenance packages you will end up buying at the time of delivery..since its a 70K car, maintenance packages can create a big hole in the wallet...

What do you mean? You get 4 years/50k free maintenance. Why would you buy additional?

That's cool. I'm just not a believer of buying extended warranties while the car is under the factory warranty already. Unless, you can get a super deal, why pay now when it's free.

Sagittarius Leader was out of range for 7 days after she exited the Panama Canal - she showed up about 6 hours ago off the coast of Baja California about 150 miles north of Cabo. Next stop San Diego scheduled for June 5 then on to port Hueneme scheduled for June 7. Then the VPC does its thing - then I wait for the car to get back on another ship to sail to Hawaii. I think the fastest possible would be to arrive in Hawaii on June 17, but more likely closer to June 24.

Panama Canal web cams there is one at the Gatun locks at the entry to the canal and one at the miraflores locks at the exit to the pacific. Track the ship on

Then time it as the ship goes through. Check my earlier posts in this thread. Caught my ship at both locks

According to the WWL website, arrival to NY adjusted to 6/4.

Perhaps the 1 day delay can be attributed to rough seas or simply dropping anchor for a day of fishing.....

Here's a video about Faust and how it transports the cars, pretty interesting to watch, if your baby is on it

Actually, it looks like it's almost in Gatun lake and crossing the canal soon

Any time estimates when you can see it on the cams?
