Congrats to the East coasters. Hope our cars enjoyed the ride. A few more days for mine to reach Georgia. And then hopefully not too long in customs.

Definitely hoping for speedy customs clearance. I'm doing PCD too, hoping for the end of October... I've done pretty good so far, but the impatience is starting to build.

Hasn't left NY yet, but according to WWL ship schedule, it'll leave today for Brunswick! It moved the Charleston, SC stop to next day. I know it's not sooner but at least I know why it's taking its time.

If you look are marinetraffic, you can also see that it made TWO stops in New Jersey. It was docked, and then went about 12km down the road and redocked. Hope it leaves soon, and ends up in GA early on the 8th, and I get my car by the weekend. Wishful thinking I know...

Where has Topeka gone? She appeared briefly yesterday morning with a target to arrive in the afternoon, then she disappeared. There are no ships showing in the area of Brunswick, GA on marinetraffic.com.

You think all ships are being diverted away because of the tropical storm activities headed towards GA/FL?
http://www.weather.com/news/weather-...-2012?pageno=2

Only issue with that thought is there are other ships in other areas of GA/FL

Hope our cars are OK.

I'm not sure what the problem is. The tropical storms forming right now aren't forecasted to hit that part of the coast it looks like. Hopefully it's just a technical glitch with whatever data source marinetraffic uses for that area.

Looks like Highmoom spent 3 days in customs in NYC. Hope they are as quick or quicker in GA.

Any one on the Topeka in NY/NJ have a delivery date from the dealer yet? Have not heard from mine at all, was hoping by Friday though.

Damn! My dealer is 40 minutes from the VDC in NJ and when I called yesterday I am being told that maybe early next week I can take delivery. WTF, how is this taking so long, I wonder if my car got damaged and that held it up at VDC

Yes, took delivery today: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=651158

BTW, mine wasn't ED, so I didn't get it "back", instead got it for the first time
