just checked the schedule and it is delayed one day.
Yeah, I figured it was just the port being busy or something. Looks like it's pulling in now though!

Note this is just for K Line vessels. It looks like saporitj's ship is a WW but I imagine there's a way to get schedules off their website as well.

Thanks. It is on a WW ship which I just noticed got delayed a day. WW doesn't appear to have a nice timetable report like you had. Thanks again.

I think if you click on the "List" button it should give you the scheduled arrival/departure dates for each port on the itinerary. Or try the WW website on a desktop if you get a chance. Someone in my build thread posted a WW screenshot that had a pretty straightforward schedule. (link)

Thank you. I found the list. First on pc and then on iPhone after I knew where to look.

You're hot on my heels!

Orion Hwy was due into Brunswick this morning, but slowed down significantly a few hours ago and has been wandering around in circles about 20 miles offshore since then.

Based on the timing in Baltimore, I think K-Line might be trying to wait for Horizon Hwy to get closer so they can dock/unload both ships in tight sequence to each other.

Orion Highway is literally docking right now. Marine Traffic shows two tugs nudging her into place.

My M550 is should be back on land by tomorrow!

Any update on your timeline? The horizon has been in port for a while now.

CA today said his system is showing car due at VPC tomorrow. I assume it's just tracking a day behind.

I'm taking PCD in January so it's going to sit for a couple weeks before being shipped up to Greenville. They would not move my delivery date up due to full schedule and then being closed for the holidays.

Slightly OT, but can anyone confirm that it's normal to be asked to complete paperwork 14 days prior to PCD? I was hoping more like 7 days so I could move all the financing stuff into 2019.

Tell them that your financing company only has a 7 day window from application to having keys in hand so they get off your back.

Well...that would work except I'm using BMW financing for a couple months in order to get the incentives.

Hi drjolokia, I too live Bay Area San Rafael. Did BMW of SF give you a good price? I originally ordered a m550 back at the end of July but had to cancel for an unforeseen issue. I plan on ordering again early next year. Bmw of San Rafael doesn't like to move much on price.

Thanks rob

I may he getting rid of the AC Schnitzer diffuser, didn't know that you have to cut off part of the car to install it.

Some how this thing weighs 43 pounds from the shipping label but it definitely doesn't feel like it.
