Has anyone here verified that their car was able to make the Porgy which left Bremerhaven to the East Coast on the 14th. My dealer e mailed me that my car was at the port waiting for a ship on the 14th. I doubt I made it as it would had to have been off loaded from the train and put on the ship in less than 24 hours if there was even space avaliable on the ship. I tried to track it on the WW site using my vin number but it does not come up. I have read that sometimes there is a delay on this tracking feature though. Oh well, if I did not make it maybe it will be on the one leaving on the 21st. There is both a WW ship leaving that day and a K line ship that make stops in Brunswick, Ga which is my port of entry.

My car arrived at port a few days before yours and is not on that ship. I'm also Brunswick, GA.

Oh well, I figured it did not make it. Let hope we are both on the next ship. Thanks for your information.

My SA order finished production on 10/31, but hasn't gotten on a ship yet, does anyone know when the next ship leaves SA?

The Porgy left on the 14th, according to the W&W web site. The next W&W to leave Bremerhaven is the Turandot, on the 21st. Fingers crossed that we are on it!

This wait IS never ending. As of tomorrow, I am taking a drive to see a car with a similar build to mine. If it is as described, I will be buying my car tomorrow and bailing from this whole order nonsense. I should have never ordered a car in the first place. Hopefully my wait is over tomorrow!!
Yeah...

Azzuro, I hope it works out for you. Just don't settle for less than what you really want, you will regret it in the long run. If it really is what you want though, go for it and show us pictures once you take ownership. I wish you good luck.

Your half the wait is over. If the car that you would be going to see tomorrow is EXACTLY the way you ordered it then only it makes sense to bail out on the current order.

The car is EXACTLY my order but with PDC, Premium Pkg & heated seats. It's $2,000 more car but because of pricing I'm actually paying LESS than my order. It's a no brainer.

If your PW45 ordered car shows up at the dealer with a new Nav, we'll hear your howl in Texas, all the way from Florida.

Mine finished on 11/6 so if yours missed two ships already I should not hope mine made it on the 11/16 boat. 800 numbers says still at port.

This is a know thing & eliminates the negative possibilities for me. I will let you know what happens but this is a great deal for me all the way around. I hope all of you get your cars soon !!

Yep, do update us.
And if you end up buying the car, don't forget to do your due diligence of posting some pics.

Dropped mine off in Munich on a week ago on the 10th so hopefully it'll be here in time for Christmas. I'm going to throw a bow on it and pretend like I bought it for my girlfriend for Christmas LMAO. I may just end up single by new years...
