Wow, that was a quick trip over. The dealer will release the car to you as soon as it comes but it has to clear customs first which could take from 2 days to a week, and then it goes through the VDC, also a few days typically.

In today's economy, that is entirely possible as the vessels are running almost empty in some cases with the hope of cargo at the next port.

Anywhere from 2 days to who knows. First, do you have a lot of accessories to be installed?? Second, any damages required repair?? If no and no, which is kind of my case, it was within a business week. If yes and yes, we have seen months because insurance company needs to time to process the paperwork and VDC sometimes waits for parts.

Very possible. I do an hour walk after work everyday from Wall St to Midtown, it is scary to see many shops are out of business.
