Oh man, I hate to see that, but was worried about it. It's basically a black box, right? You can't get information about where you are in the process or when the work will be completed. I'm trying to plan for delivery in a busy schedule and it comes down to guesswork and luck. Is what it is, but not something with which I'm comfortable.

Yep, once you're in the VPC the next update is when the truck is assigned so in between arrival and that point you're in the dark.

NICE! Congratulations...the pain, excitement, torture, anticipation is nearly over.

How many days will that have been from dock to dealer...5 or 6 business days?

Say 'hi' to Jon for me (John D'Angelo).

Today is only the 3rd business day it has been at the VPC since it arrived on 3/28. My car should get to the dealer's lot sometime tonight and I plan on picking it up around lunch time tomorrow or maybe early afternoon. We'll see what traffic permits on I-5.

Santa Barbara, just a 30 minute jog from the VPC actually. It got there on 4/3 (offloaded centaurus leader 3/28) but our schedules didn't line up until today.

Not yet...... The wait is even worse now knowing the car is on American soil. But today I cleaned out the old car, checked the tire pressures, made sure all the lights work. And did an all around inspection. Now just have to wait for the new car to put the old one up for sale.

That was the worst part for me too especially with the dealership being 30 miles from the VPC............

Congrats! Now we need bigger pictures. What color is that?

Mine made it through the Panama Canal yesterday, so delivery by the end of the month is still looking good.

Mineral Grey Metallic.

I guess I don't know how to post full size pictures on this forum....seems they get resized. I already need to get it re-detailed from the 2.5hr drive because I killed some big nasty bugs at the bottom of the grapevine.

This wait is killing me. I have heard nothing and you can't track the car once it is at the port...

Anybody else on the Asian Emperor? It's somewhere in the Pacific. Hopefully tracking will kick back in sometime soon.

My car is currently on board the Asian Emperor, looks like the last time it's location was recorded was when it was leaving the Panama Canal.

I wonder how long it will take to reach California port.. and yes the waiting does not get any easier towards the end.

Just finished my ED and mine is also on the Toreador. Hope the wait isn't much longer after it reaches Port Hueneme.

Same. But overall I was expecting the ship to arrive much later. My CA said it would take 30 days. So I was expecting it to come on like the 20th. But the 11th is great news!
