Don Juan

I contacted Wallenius and the Don Juan is scheduled to depart Halifax this evening and arrive in NY on Oct. 11th. Hopefully there will not be any customs delays.

My 650i coupe is also on that ship. I live in Houston. Do you guys think I will get her before 9/25, I have a trip for that day and I don't know if I need to set up a rental. I scraped a wheel in Munich but I don't think they will fix that before delivery. I am also following Marine traffic daily...

I understand the general rule is about 2 weeks from port to dealership, so the 25th would be way ahead of that. Given that thy VDC will probably fix the wheel, I think it would probably take the full 2 weeks to get to you. I hope yours gets his sooner, but probably not.

I contacted Wallenius and learned that my 650i GC actually cleared customs yesterday. 10/11.
It's hard to believe that it would clear that quickly. Hopefully I will see it this coming week.

Mine cleared today. I tried checking the status on EH Harms website but my customer information is not found. I'm thinking they may have my name spelled wrong. I'll call my ca on Monday for an update.

My MINI's sitting on the dock of the bay right now. Too bad customs and the VDC are closed until Monday. I figure I might be able to pickup at my NJ dealership next weekend at the very earliest.

I'm shipping my Sport Wagon to Nevada on 11/02. That's my OMG gotta-be-here date for the new GT, allowing for banged up bumper repair. My dealer will give me loaner if it isn't ready, but I have high expectations that my timing is perfect.

We're in port. Waiting on someone to get an update on their car being discharged.

Thank you Justin. This wait is killing me . I have to book a flight from NYC to ATL to go pick the car up, and the sooner I know the better.

Thank you guys.
My salesperson tells me it is usually two weeks from port to dealer. Will have to wait.

You guys aren't gonna believe this: my MINI dealership just called to tell me that the wife's new MINI that came into New York on Friday on the Don Juan, is already at the dealership! Two days after reaching port? And over the weekend? Hopefully you guys will be getting your calls very soon. Perhaps customs is letting the cars breeze through.

Wow.... that was quick. Her Mini would have had an easier time in customs then the BMW's that were Euro Delivery. As the customer was in possession of the car and could have put illegal stuff in it, they look at those cars more than a car that is coming directly from the factory.

I wish I got a surprise call like that!!

Mine was updated to discharged on Friday. I have no idea where it is right now. My dealer has been keeping me informed. I'm not worried. I did ED last month.

Picked-up my MINI last night. I guess "last on, first off" the Don Juan..

My dealer has an ETA of tomorrow. I'm hoping it's accurate.

They told me I cleared on Thursday when I called the ED number Friday, but the website tracking does not yet show it.
