Default Last week's ship wreck affect anyone here?

Did any of you guys hear that there was another ship wreck late last week carrying 1 series and e92M's over to the U.S?

Do they salvage the not so damaged ones and resell? Or, what exactly happens to these and to the people who were expecting their cars to arrive this month?

A friend of mine who used to be an auto broker and still has ties to many BMW dealers etc, etc, alerted me to this today.

I called my sales guy to see if he heard this as well, and he did in fact confirm this. He also asked how I knew as well, lol.

I'll see what i can dig up. I'm sure it will pop up some time this week.

I wonder if this will push back April delivery dates.

Let's hope my buddy and the my sales man have waged a massive conspiracy together and that this is all BS
