Platinum Ray roll call

These "roll call" threads are popular over on M3post where I have been hanging around the past few years.

Anyone else on the Platinum Ray headed for California???

PKL - Don't forget to let us know when you get the call. You'll forget after you start driving it.

Confirmed my car is not at the dealer today, yet...

I would love to see it on my home from work even with the plastic and shipping blocks!

My CA just texted me to tell me my car will be put on a truck tomorrow. So I will either get the car tomorrow, Saturday around 5pm, or Sunday morning.

No, and my CA told me my car was not on the first truck that came to the dealer today, and doesn't know if more trucks are expected today.

Wow - The VPC must really be behind. The Grand Venus went in circles around Ensenada yesterday & is now headed for Port H but is taking its SA time. I'm guessing it was a matter of personnel being available on the weekend. - And, of course, customs people probably don't work today. I can't imagine you getting yours any later than tomorrow.

Apparently the trucking company Santa Monica BMW uses is a Jewish company and they are delayed due to recent Jewish holiday. GREAT. COOL.

Confirmed that is the trucking company. Apparently the owner is Jewish. This is what I was told.

It's very possible I have the worst Client Advisor on the face of the planet.

He sold Porsche for 15 years before BMW but refers to it as "Porsh-a"

That doesn't sound right. There are quite a few Jewish holidays in October where work is a problem. I don't think BMW or their buyers want to wait until November. There must be some forum members of the Jewish faith following this thread. Can anyone shed some light?

Hey. maybe I misspoke. Or you misinterpretted. I don't know what you meant by "wait until November". I just mean the trucking company is a day or two behind, because they took a day off or whatever last week for the new year.

Hopefully, that's the case. In searching the web I just saw quite a few holidays in October where work is not allowed or is restricted. You're okay but there are days coming up that might impact me.

Did I mention that my dealer already received an entire truck of cars from the Platinum Ray. But my car wasn't on it.

PKL - You've probably been looking at some of these other sites as well but I DID see that someone picked up a Mini at a San Jose dealership on 10-7 from your ship. Hang in there.
