So bummed -- 535ix is ready to pick up, but I already have a car with me at work, so can't get it until Monday. But at least good to know that paperwork is about done and it's ready for me.

I wonder if the parts are on your ship, or if they are delivering via airfreight? Is it a band-aide or real fix -- that's the real question.

Manon

I lucked out -- I think it was delivered to Bremerhaven, loaded onto ship, and departed within two days. Only hickup was the strike at the Port in NJ -- held things up a day or two.
