It looks like it docked at BMW, then went over to the other auto terminal, then went back to BMW?

Maybe it's picking up a bunch of South Carolina-made SUVs and needed to make room before taking...

This is the worst part -- being the black hole of US Customs and VDC. There's literally no way to track online, but you can call the ED department in NJ. Even though they're quite friendly, the...

Those are some significant delays.

I've never heard of a dealer "promising delivery" by a certain day, but they can usually estimate within a reasonable time frame. And I suspect the reason they...

I hate to pee on your corn flakes, but you should expect at least a week from the ship docking in NYC to arrival at your dealer. I'd say 7-10 days is the average.

Don't plan on anything, and that...

You'd rather the ship spend a few extra days in port/diverting around weather than having to wait for a new car to be manufactured. ;)

Yes, definitely look at it in person.
