    thanks !

    If I understand this correctly, the likely candidate is Glovis Cosmos en route to zeebrugge and then potentially southampton or the Glovis Challenge, which may or may not be going to zeebrugge and is still loading. I was vin matched end of last week, so hopefully its the cosmos.

    Going off the unwritten rules, more a spotted pattern, if you're already VIN matched it might be sooner than that boat? Assuming there is one.

    EDIT: There isn't, so Cosmos is your best bet..

    The Glovis Cosmos may not go to Southampton. In the past, the ships generally unload in Zeebrugge and the cars are loaded on to another ship for the transit to Southampton.

    sad face. I can't decide if I would give that up to get the car sooner, probably not for a 3 year lease when I am completely bored with black interiors in cars.

    There is a ship every week for the next 5 weeks or so. Don't get a downer just because someone hasn't seen any this week. Some folk waited years for their Model 3!

    it's fine, I only ordered 8 weeks ago which is well within order times for other new cars, who knows what Tesla have in their stocks/allocations processes, nobody can really predict it so it's a case of waiting. Just frustrating having sold my nice comfy car before christmas as got a buyer, but it's pretty much first world problems rather than a downer ..... :)

    If we have been vin matched, does that mean the car is on a ship already on its way?
    Had a vin since Monday so assuming end of Feb/March is a realistic delivery if that’s the case.

    I think typically people get VIN matched around the time the boat is passing through the Panama canal.

    Does VIN matched mean when Tesla have told you that you have one, or when you discover a hidden VIN on your webpage?

    Honestly I have never been more nerdy waiting for a car, but I have to say, I am enjoying it in a masochistic kind of way.

    Remember the vins are unofficial - what they give with one hand, they can take away with another.

    I would take with a pinch of salt what people are reporting to be on the dock. No rhd, and no white interiors. From what I’ve seen the place looks enormous with thousands of cars which seem to be brought in daily.
    Therefore if they are wondering about the dock, which I don’t think they are, very difficult to tell what’s there.
    Must be a bit of shock for sailors to come from San Francisco to Europe, quite the weather change I would imagine.

    Have you been to Korea in winter? It's even worse than Peterhead.

    And the Korea port name is a bugger to spell for the postcard home, Peterhead folks can manage - just about

    Are the ships that are leaving every week for the next 5 weeks all bound for Europe? Many thanks too for all your efforts on this thread Mr Miserable

    No, but Panama looks nice just now, hopefully get some r&r waiting to get through the canal, which looks busy.

    On past form, there will be a ship a week leaving to the EU until about Feb 26 and then no more until April.

    Great. Thanks for replying. I ordered a Model 3 this week, so maybe I’ll be lucky enough to get it shipped by the end of Feb.

    You may well have timed your order nicely.

    You might also want to remove your referral code from your signature before the Magenta Man (the moderator) clocks it - against the rules.

    Thanks once again and thanks for the advice, I didn’t realise it wasn’t allowed.
