Yeah not only a day, but it's not coming in until 6pm.

If your girlfriend feels neglected now, wait until you actually take delivery! I think i've successfully multi tasked, and when all else fails, I just tell her I'm sleeping while I spend the night on the forums and tracking the Manon

Where in Westchester are you? Did you order from Westchester BMW?

Originally from Yonkers, actually live in Hoboken NJ now. What about you?

I went around to all the Westcehster BMW dealers and was kinda insulted with the way they handled things. I think its b/c these cars are in ridiculous demand in the tri state they have a chip on their shoulder that they can charge whatever they want for them. I ended up ordering mine from a dealer in Boston MA, mostly cause of price and speed. B/c i'm assuming no one really orders a coupe up there I was able to get my car in a build spot immediately, unlike the dealers i dealt with in the tri state that told me 3 to 4 month wait. I mean all the dealers i dealt with down here were sold out of 07coupes in the summer and up there in Novemeber they had so many just sitting on their lot, it was unreal! Then again when i was driving around up there i hardly saw any bmw's on the road and down here they are everywhere.

I'm in White Plains. I understand what you mean about the tri-state dealers. When I was first in the market for a BMW, I found many of the dealer's to be quite arrogant...sorta like the "you're lucky to be buying this car from us" type of attitude that really threw me off. When I went in with numbers ready to make a deposit, I was treated very differently. They took me quite seriously and went through hoops to get me what I wanted. I think they were a bit skeptical of a young twenty-something walking in with a college hoodie and sneakers at first. Once you open your wallet, they treat you like gold.

I don't know about you man, but the anticipation is killing me now. We're a day out from port, then figure what maybe another three to seven days to the dealer (+ a day or two for you?). I'm running out of things to do while waiting!

**Tracking Update**

We moved about 100 miles since the last AIS check-in

As of two hours ago: N 4036', W 06836'

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UT...42969&z=6&om=1

Zoom out to see the entire trail (at least from England). Kinda cool.

For those following the Manon, it looks like we may have lost AIS reports, so I think we're running blind into the port now :-(

I'll post any AIS check ins, but I really don't expect one until she docks around 6pm this evening.

any of you get a call from the dealer yet for your vehicle? Trying to figure out when mine will be arriving, my boat arrived at a similar time (I think)
