MAERSK WIND (I think)
I was told this am my M5 is on a ship that left on the 3rd - sched to arrive on the 14th (not sure where NY??)
Hope to be driving it on the 20th (per the dealer) :blabla: :wroom: :7: :1:
(Picking it up in NY then puting it on a truck home, after as many miles as I can do in a weekend :biggrin: :wroom: )

Maybe the wrong ship but correct dates (I hope) as it should be coming in to Port Elizabeth. Anyone know how to find this out until I can get in touch with my salesman?

Alex,
Do you agree with the time frame to the dealer? (ie 6-7days from arrival in port to dealer in Long Island) This EPA stuff and the fact that this is a new high profile car for BMW NA, they MAY take their time/delay the release to the dealers from the VPC :crying2:
I know there is no formal hold back or orchestrated release, but............

nah... my timeframe is my guesstimate... few days more or less makes no difference to me anyway... as i said- the smg has yet to win me, so i am not _that_ eager...

Barry we'll have to have a bay area lunch when it arrives. I'm itching to see and hear an e60 in the flesh... Thinking about those waiting lists.

Mike,
it lands in NY on Fri, I plan on picking her up the following Fri (21st) from the dealer. So let's plan a Bay Area lunch 1st week of Nov. She should be here by then (10 days in transit after as many miles as I can do in a weekend, if the east coast weather cooporates) :wroom:
