I do know that the ship has made its way into the north Atlantic so we at least know it has crossed the equator. I'm guessing that since the ship is roughly a week away we might see it come near a coast line soon (2-3 days) where we can start tracking it again. My wife works for a BMW dealer here in the midwest and she told me typically when a car arrives at port in Baltimore, it will take at least a day or two for the car to be off loaded, clear customs, and then be loaded on a transport truck. Depending on where you are located in the U.S. while vary on how long it takes for the car to arrive at your dealership. Then expect them to take their sweet time doing the PDI (probably 2 days). I figure when it hits port, expect to see your car hit your dealer any where from the 16th to the 22nd. With any luck you will take delivery of your new ride around those dates.
Thanks for the heads up, appreciate it! It's about a two day drive from port to dealer in Ohio (according to CA). I am going to make sure they expedite what they have to do at dealer (they can skip adding swirl marks don't want them buffing my car at all). Especially the black polished interior trim. My G37 doesn't have to be turned in until the 25th so I look to be on schedule at least.
