The i8 is underway

Picture of the ship she's on. ETA at NYC VPC is Sept. 17th. Then a week or so to make it to the dealer in Va...assuming there's no bullshit "hold" for a "synchronized release" (BMW NA swears there's no plan to hold cars at the VPC). On a side note, I did a VIN search of the first 400 i8 VINs using W&W's Track&Trace system and only there appear to only be four i8s on the water, bound for the US. I don't want to jinx it but (excluding the celebrity deliveries at Pebble Beach), mine appears to be one of the first customer cars to make it across the pond.

Excitement...I has it.
