I would expect about 2 weeks from port of entry for a non-ED car, but it can take longer. Personally I think you have a shot at getting it before the new year. But getting into port on Xmas Eve you lose too many days and too many people on vacation. I mean you need a day ro two just for transit assuming they are not making other stops along the way.

Make sure you report back when you get it, would be good to evaluate this time of year.
Well, it seems I was following the wrong ship. My car is actually on a KLine ship, Athens Highway, with an estimated arrival of December 20 (dealer says it should be Dec 19). According to them, about 2-3 days until they get the car from that point forward. I've seen other people state their car cleared customs electronically before the ship even arrived, so I'm being optimistic I can pick it up before Christmas. After all, I'm sure the dealer knows pretty well where their stock is and how soon it gets to them.
