    I almost feel like I am re-living the build up to my S5 at the moment reading this thread

    I can almost smell the first traces of carbonation on the tips of its pristine quad exhaust pipes now it's this close (there is tempting fate to it getting stuck in Emden for 4 weeks!)

    As Snake says, it's almost like reliving the experience. I remember having email alerts setup for MarineTraffic for ships leaving Emden (I think). Soon stopped that as it was a right pain!

    Just imagine the dealer going over it with a fine tooth comb ensuring every surface is perfect.......

    At this rate you will be getting yours before mine! Can't believe its taken nearly 2 weeks to get it registered and taxed, it only took 8 days or so to build it and have it shipped and delivered to dealer compound.

    Astonishing how many cars are in one port at any one time! I knew there would be a few, but this wasn't all of them. No wonder a few cars turn up battle scarred at the dealers.

    A fair way, but it's not live. When you do the detail loss is bad enough you can discern a car from a JCB but that's about it!

    I know we want real-time updates but I bet that's never an option the dealers will offer, to view your car being manhandled off the boat and razzed around the car park...

    Yeah I bet the S5's especially get some good 'run-in' thrash by those yard lads and boarding the ship
    Especially when they know Warren is changing so many components when it arrives ha ha !
    And ... I've heard that Warren's Dealer has taken delivery of a brand new set of brillo pads in prep for his car.
    Whilst they know he has told them not to wash / polish it for him, they still don't believe him and fully intend to give his car the 'full works' Dealership detail or they will forget, lose the instruction NOT TO carry out this work

    I once made the mistake of using a car park at Gatwick airport that parks your car for you (you pull up at reception and they drive it to the slot in the car park). Due to a delay I was still sat in the bus when the urchin who parked my car took it off to be parked. Thank god it had been warmed up, it squatted so hard on acceleration they must have launched it flat out, drive / stole come to mind. I always take the mileage and thankfully it only did 0.6 miles, but they were the fastest 0.6 miles that car ever did. I can imagine that at some point (ahead of the Brillo action) that will happen.

    I've just been in to town for a hair cut. Walking down the high street every mobile phone shop had big Samsung 'S5' offers in the window, cruel world why do you taunt me!

    Latest update: it was on the boat today, not been checked in at Sheerness yet, but likelihood is the delay in the system will mean it won't show up as on UK soil until tomorrow. Now just need 'Eddie' to do his bit!

    Good news, stupid question... who's Eddie? I guess the fact it's quoted means something like Fast Eddie, but I might just be being thick (nothing new there)...

    Came in on African Highway which is one ugly mother :



    Dealer has just come back to me and they would be happy to release the car to the detailer for 3 days before delivery if I wanted to get it perfect for collection.... Very tempted.

    I think if he has a free slot I'll go for it.

    In the meantime some light entertainment bought to you from Audi at the Sheerness Docks:

    I think having the car detailed and then taken back to the dealer for collection is a bad idea,just imagine your car being sat there all freshly detailed waiting for you to collect and those Eastern European Valeters give it a wash mistaking it for another Black Coupe.
