Same here, I am waiting for Benecia. Anyone else here doing a PECLA delivery?

I went through this excitement about a month ago. Tracked ship daily, it finally docked at Houston, then the port hold nonsense started, then the car was “cleared”. Then multiple calls to dealer and pcna. Lots of confusing and conflicting information later, my car still sits in Houston with no eta.....Hate to be a downer, just a friendly warning to temper your excitement so you don’t end up disappointed like some of us.

Sorry about your painful experience NS.

I on the other hand put the tracking across the pond as part of the overall experience. I’ve done it many times and I’ve actually come to appreciate it. There’s anguish, anticipation, and patience that goes into this process, which imo, adds to an ownership experience that is memorable and more often than not, a very pleasant one.

I hope you get you car soon and can start enjoying it.

I would assume it’s all German vehicles and equipment. It continues to make relatively good progress but the Davisville arrival has changed from the 7th to 4am 8th.

It left Emden a day late probably bc of Santa.

Good speed so far so not to far off original schedule. Davisville a small port with little room. Lets hope there is an open gate when it arrives.
I'm a Jax guy so a quick off load in R.I. would be nice.

Cheers.

It says UTC -5 which is East Coast time so it looks to be 24 hrs behind original estimate.
