This is also my 3rd time ordering...
You're right, it never gets easier.
It is nice to commiserate with someone though and I appreciate your help and knowledge.
And as a follow-up, my salesman called me (on his day off...pretty nice) and said everything is still on track. He did say there was no way I was going to make that ship on the 24th. He said it usually takes 2-3 days to catch the train to bremerhaven and people typically wait 5 days at Bremerhaven for a ship.
Sometimes I think that having more information (the 800 #, website, etc) creates more anxiety than if we just assumed it would take 75 days and were pleasantly surprised if it came early...of course, where's the fun in that?
BTW, your link to the Munich plant virtual tours is phenomenal. I think I have watched it like 30 times. Thanks.
Best of luck getting on the ship and have a good weekend.
