Fantastic write up and pics. I need to go through it slower with a beer this afternoon... Adding this link to my future euro delivery planning spreadsheet!

To those who say many of the pics show up as Xs or ?s. I get the ?s error for majority of the pics when viewing on my iphone, but not on computer. I get this fail quite often.. I have noticed when viewing my own uploaded pics, that pics taken on the phone will display when uploaded from the phone or ipad, but if uploaded from the computer (typically bigger format), they do not all display on the iphone.

Any techno gurus explain?

I took redelivery of my car yesterday. The wait was 1 month 9 days. Not too bad.

Congrats! That's fairly quick, and you seem to have gotten lucky with the tropical storm situation on the east coast

Just a suggestion: Has anyone ever thought about linking large quantity of photos from a photo host site, rather than posting them in the thread? It makes displaying and seeing them so much easier. I love to see them, but it took a long time before I was able to reach the start of the thread.

You took redelivery during a hurricane?

Congrats on your redelivery. 5-6 weeks is pretty good.

Yow, that quick! We're now on week six and have no idea when we're going to get re-delivery of our vehicle.

Yes, the ships landed and has been released from customs. So it should be at the VPC.

I just read your write up for the 2nd time. Great story. We had Sven for our delivery also. He was very patient w/us during the simulator, especially when my 13 month old son took a huge dump in his diaper & stunk up the simulator room. We had a do a quick diaper change between simulator & delivery!
