Vessel: Boheme - Voyage # EA810-BOH. NY 3-23

Left Germany 3-8, and is scheduled to arrive in NY on 3-23, exactly one month after I ordered. Anyone else on this boat??!!

I'm on the Boheme as well.

Here's a picture of her...along with her somewhat current position (near the top):

I have no idea what this ship is doing. It's basically be going in circles all day according to the AIS map.

Yea, that would not be so good for us...

I have read alot about orders only taking about 5 weeks around this time. If I am under 6-8 weeks, I will be exctatic! This could be the longest wait ever.

Maybe it's a problem with AIS rather than the ship moving all over the place. Sometimes it disappears from the map entirely...at least where it's clearly labeled what the triangle is.

This morning, arrival in NY was pushed back again to March 24. I wouldn't be surprised if it's the 25th when I wake up tomorrow.

Looks like she's finally moving towards Zeebrugge. There must not have been space at the port or something.

I don't see why else the ship would fart around all day in the North Sea.

Still the 24th. Why cant they just skip all the prior desitnations and just go right to NY, thats easy enought, right?

So the 335xi, huh? That thing is an absolute rocket! I was impressed after the test drive. Since I am saving for a house, some other things, etc. I went with the 328xi. Just could not justify the extra money right now. In addition, I am sure I would have multiple tickets within a week of having that car! Still equally excited about my car though. I am sure you will love the 335xi.

Now hold it right there, buddy!

There are some of us Canadians anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Boheme in Halifax. I, for one, am looking forward to the delivery of my new E90 335i ...

You ain't kidding. My CA let me push the car pretty hard when I test drove it. I took a pretty good curve in my area at 60 MPH and it cut through it like butter. It was amazing.

Getting up to 90 was ridiculously easy...and even cruising at 60 easily felt like 30. I have a feeling I am going to get in trouble quickly...

I'm glad to see someone is being responsible. I'm paying off my college loan and trying to save for a house as well but I just can't pass this car up so I'll delay a new place for the time being.
