No.

I would guess the quantity of cars dropped off at Munich is much higher and there are more truckloads heading to Bremerhaven more often.

Thus the quotes around "farther" It's farther in time - and actually mine left Emden (which is even closer to Frankfurt). I honestly don't know if it's just a vagary of scheduling or some logistics as you say. The interesting point is the FAQ says something about dropping off closer to Emden/Bremerhaven to speed up re-delivery and at least in our cases that doesn't appear to hold.

Oh well...

Redelivery is getting closer! The wife's Q5 TDI is on the AURIGA LEADER - ahead of schedule - expected arrival in San Diego - 2014-06-30 01:40:00 PDST, per the Port of San Diego Information. Hopefully they will quickly clear the deck of the Audi's!

So far 5 week's since drop off. Hoping for no delays in Customs.

Happy Wife is a Happy Life

Any word HerrK? AoA swears mine's on a truck now and that would be miraculously fast customs and VPC time, so I'm a tad skeptical. Hoping you're already driving....

No car yet but our CA dropped us an email that we should have it next week (14 July)

Hmmm, did they give any indication of whether it's cleared customs and got hung up in the port/VPC or ? AoA ED folks told me I cleared customs and was loaded on a truck but my ship docked 3-4 days after yours. I figure a solid 2 days driving time between port and my city at absolute minimum, so unless the driver's last name is Andretti I may be tied with you.

I'm just a little surprised that with your proximity to the port there'd be more than a day between the last port step and you having it. Frankly that more concerns me that AoA might be mistaken on my car's status because yours has been ahead the whole way

I guess not, and maybe I win Re-delivered today with an additional 11 miles beyond what I'd dropped it with. According to the detail guy at my dealer, it was absolutely filthy, and the floor mats were covered in oily stains but he thinks he got it all out with shampoo.

Happy, happy, happy!

Congratulations! Always a happy time at redelivery. Looking forward to my wife's Q5 hopefully this week.
