I don't know if it's still the case, but you used to be able to walk right around the fence line on the breakwater, depending on which dock it is at.

edit: that picture I posted the other day was taken from the fatter bit on this 'path':

Ah!!!! It docked at the same area!

I went to the side of it but did not go all the way around.

Never mind. I had my daughters in the car with their mum... I was going to see if I could see the car.

ALso said I was interested in the shift kit, but for 1500 odd im going to pass.

This wait is killing me. I ordered on March 23rd. I've had the build week (17 - this week just finishing) and the VIN for a couple of weeks, and I'm still completely in the dark as to where it's up to.

I know I could pester the dealer for the build status. But I don't want to be a nuisence.

Is there any way that we Aussies can get any info before it's checked into the port of departure in Germany?

I do think it's ironic that the first piece of real information we an access comes from the shipping line, not BMW.

I am in a private pathology lab next to Honda in Heidelberg.

Sounds like the car did not arrive yesterday... perheps Monday.

BFI,

All they have is a production number. When it is being build - you will get a VIN. That is it. That is all they have as well.

I setup the LAN infrastructure in that place when it first opened ~7 years ago, and also put in the (of slighty dubious legality) link that runs out the back to the admin office.
(I used to work for the company that owned it at the time, think big red circle)

Some fucking truck driver has not had a smoko yet? I donno man.. fucking frustrating. Leah said BMW has booked for the car to come last Friday. She told me that even the one that was supposed coming last week has to come next week!

Fuck that is bad. Not sure what is the delay. I offer to fucking drive if I have to...

Porsche service is better. I called for a brochure this morning, they courier them in to me to the office. But a 911 is 3 times as much as a 135...
