Hmm, I'm not sure. It's run by NYK, so it might be a little more difficult to track. (I had the same problem with my MB last year since it, too, was on a NYK ship -- I think it's a west coast thing.)

In theory, if it was WW, you should be able to http://www.2wglobal.com/www/customer...LaunchPage.htm and enter your VIN as the Cargo ID.

Yeah, pretty sure we are since we're both west coast deliveries and we were both just sitting there, waiting.

Sounds good. Thanks.

Although, you don't have to go that far. I'm in CA, but I'm getting my car from Adam in Seattle.

Thanks. Yeah, let's keep that boat afloat! It's got the last E92 M3's ever on their way to the US.

Yup. Just waiting for my incentive to come via email. It's several days late, will likely call BMW NA in the morning.

As far as I know, yes, correct.

Which I have always found odd that the auto does.

Agreed, and I've never quite understood it as said.

Good luck with the car! Sounds great.

Thanks! The car weighs ~3550 pounds in my basic config. How do I know this? Car&Driver did a comparo in Jan 2012 (ten best issue) against a C63AMG with my exact config and listed their measured weight. It was a no nav, ZCP 6 speed, and in IB paint as well
Nice to know this, as it's less than the bemoaned 3700 pounds. I suppose the cars weighing 3700 are the ones loaded up with the packages.....
I look forward to taking delivery, like Christmas-time.
Regarding the shift lights....
Well, us 6-speed guys don't need a bunch of blinking lights anyways!
