Anyone else on the COURAGE?

My car is currently steaming through the English Channel at 15 knots

I started production on 3/28, but didn't finish until 4/10 (Easter holiday at the Regensburg plant), so I was happy to see a relatively short wait at the port. Anyway, ETA in Baltimore is 4/30, so getting excited!

I looked at the shipping schedules on the W&W website to get an idea of when the next ship was departing (knowing that my car was at the port). You can then enter your VIN into the tracking function. That only showed up today even though the Courage departed yesterday.

Check out the Sticky in this section on tracking your order.

My car is on the Courage with yours, as well.

Placed my order on 2/26, finished production on 3/13. It's taken forever for it to go from the plant to finally getting on a boat.

Wow, that was a long wait at the port! Glad to hear you're finally crossing the pond.

I wasn't waiting at the port the whole time... I sat waiting to be transported to the port for a couple weeks as well. So far, it seems like each step has taken about 2 weeks. I don't know about you, but I keep telling myself it will be worth the wait.

I went through this with an E92 about 3 years ago, so I can tell you from experience that it will be worth the wait

Looks like we've been unloaded and are headed through the VDC. Any word from your CA when you can expect to take delivery?

Have you heard from your CA?

Got off the phone a few minutes ago with my CA and they're supposed to receive the car on Monday. Finally! It'll be 10 weeks on Tuesday. Yikes!

Nice! Did you have anything installed at the port? I didn't.

Well, the car didn't leave Baltimore last week... My CA called me on Saturday and said that they wouldn't be receiving it until 5/10, now. I've got be honest, this whole process has been pretty crummy. It's been 10 weeks, but I'm slowly getting closer to my day of delivery. If it doesn't get delayed again, hopefully I can take delivery early next week. Did you get yours yesterday?

Yep, I took delivery last night. 6 weeks almost to the day since I placed the order.

10 weeks sounds excessive. Did they explain why your car is delayed at the VPC? Surely the accessories aren't taking that long to install?

Pop some pics up here if you can.

No, they didn't seem to know... I've seen the build sheet at multiple stages during the 10 weeks and it's been in priority 1 since I ordered, so I know that's not the hold up. I would hope it's not the accessories. I'm assuming there's probably nothing I can do to accelerate getting the car here, is there? I mean, it's a 10 hour drive from Baltimore to Indy, lol!

Talked to my CA again today and the car still hasn't shipped. It's waiting on some stupid emissions sticker. It'll be 11 weeks on Tuesday and I'm ready to bail. There's 3 cars exactly like mine in a 250 mile radius from me that I'm tempted to just go get!

Any updates? I'm curious on this emissions sticker. Looks like your car was built over a month before mine, so maybe that's why I didn't need this sticker? I can imagine your frustration, but it WILL be worth it, hang in there

Here's a couple of pics of my car, sorry it took so long.

Car finally left the VPC this morning and is scheduled to be delivered to my dealer on Thursday. We'll see... I keep inching my way closer.

Side note, nice looking ride!

Hey Robbie,

Congrats, I ordered the same car. Can you do me a favor? When you take some pictures can you take one from the front with your lights on?

Thanks
