Now, is the car in VDC ? I hope it's going through fast! I hope this is in my garage already.....

I picked up the car today around 6pm. It was so so nice to reunite.

I dropped off the car on 9/12 at the Munich airport, so.. it's been 4 weeks + 3 days. (I live in Boston)

By the way, I found two European plates in my trunk!

Getting my car today.

I am scheduled to pickup my car today 10/16/2012
Dropped it off @ 9/11, so it seems like 5 weeks exactly. Which I think it in the estimate.

Sorry to hear. Do you know if the pumps are at the VPC or are they still waiting on parts?

Sorry Dan, hope you find something out soon.

Anyone with at Georgia unloading and a ED gets your car, or at least get word that it's on a truck coming to you?

Still hoping I'll get mine by this weekend, but I don't know if it's even made it out of VPC yet. Need to check in with my dealer today.

Called ED dept this morning. Turns out that the car was realesed to the trucking company on Oct 10th and was just waiting for the full truck to go east. Should be at the dealership tomorrow.
Not sure why my CA didn't tell me this.

Wow... I just called the ED Dept like Dan, and looks like I haven't even cleared customs yet. According to the lady, I haven't even made VPC, and was still in customs since 10/09. This is very disconcerting...

Boo! Mine ED car reached the VPC on 10/9 so it breezed right through customs. But, it's still there undergoing a repair! Apparently it was damaged somehow during shipping and someone is going to get back to me with the nature of the repair in the next day or two.

I was thinking that too, since my dealer told me earlier this week that since it did not get delivered at the dealer last Saturday as he expected, it could be here tomorrow.

Well, this one is titled to leave 9/19, so you should probably create a new one for the exact date when Topeka is leaving, again

So it takes more time for our cars to get delivered from Port than it does for Topeka to cross the Atlanta
