Donít draw attention. Theyíll use your car to pick up lunch. When you take delivery itís going to smell like Taco Bell.

Are the cars going straight to dealers or are they being held at the port in NJ?

Anyone else seen the progress tracker backtrack one step? Mine has just changed from "In transit" back to "At the port". A glitch in the Matrix?

Mind did that as well after my car hit the ground in NJ. Seems to be a quirk, there should really be another "arrived at destination port" step instead of reverting to an earlier step. Gave me a brief heart attack.

One site (myshipttacking.com) says ETA for NOCC Oceanic is now 4/5 instead of 4/8. Fingers crossed.

Has anybody's M340 been delivered to their dealer yet? Mine arrives at the port tomorrow. I'm curious when they will release it to the dealer.
