Ya. I can't wait! My CA told me that if the car is one if the first out then it might be at the dealership in 1-2 days

I wait updates for my car too.
There is a chance that the ship will stop in San Diego before Port Hueneme. I don't think that it will be 5+ sailing days behind the FIDELIO, which has already departed for Tacoma.

In looking at the ports that the CEPHEUS LEADER stopped at in Europe and the amount of time spent at each, I my bet is that it will be in San Diego in the next day, spend 8 hours in port, then sail on to Port Hueneme arriving on the 24th...which would be on-schedule. Keep in mind that it left Bremerhaven 3 days late

All of the non-ED cars have it pretty easy...all clear customs on the boat and the VDC can process up to 600 cars per day. ED cars are a completely different story. All have to be inspected and then they clear and move on to the VDC. In the case of my car, it will have its oil pump replaced while there before heading to the dealer.

Fingers crossed for fast customs agent(s) and expedited VDC processing

Woo Hoo! Finally. Seemed like an eternity to get to this point. Few more hours, and then hopefully on its way to Port Hueneme

Don't want to burst your bubble...but I am quite sure that the CEPHEUS LEADER still needs to make its way to Port Hueneme. Once there, the car will be offloaded and go through the VDC and then shipped to your dealer. I think 4 days is a little optimistic.

It will be with you soon though

The Port Hueneme site hasn't updated their schedule since 10/4 and it's still saying arrival on 10/25: http://www.portofhueneme.org/documen...l_schedule.pdf

Just 150mi or so to go...
