Car was built on Tuesday, verified via Etis. Salesman just told me it should be here "around the 25th."

I thought trains were supposed to be fast.

ok so my dealer gave me a delivery eta of this upcoming monday, I've yet to receive a window sticker. heck i don't even have a VIN! shouldn't they provide me with this info?! they say that they "just don't have anything yet." So then how could they give me an ETA?!
I R CONFUSE

You'd think they were fast... my car has supposedly been on a train since 10/28, but the ETA I got was 11/19. A truck could have been here faster. Oh well, I'm getting pretty excited.

Trains were fast in the 1940's . No more. I'll bet it can take a couple of days to load one of the trains that has over a hundred rail cars . Then they have to be unloaded and put on a truck. I tracked my BMW from the build date in Germany to the Ship which stopped in two ports before arriving in Port Newark then to the dealer. That only took 20 days from the build to New York.

Finally got my VIN yesterday after some serious pissing and moaning. Turns out my car is scheduled to arrive next Thursday. I'm not getting my hopes up, considering what I've seen on here about delivery.

WOOT

You can look it up online using your VIN. You can use the link below, just add your VIN to the end.
