Could be the following week if it misses the train.... heck, for all I know mine is still sitting in Spartanburg and will be on the same train...

That's my guess!

Lucky? I am in no hurry... slow boat around the Cape would be nice. I just found out I am getting another car for the month of November, so I don't need the X5 until December.

Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
