congrats on your purchase. and yes it will be the longest 6-8 weeks of your life thus far. I'm speaking from experience, i went as far as going to find a few websites that shows exactly where the ship was that my car was on. If you happen to find out the name of the ship you get on, you might want to start another thread to see if anyone else on the forums is on the same ship as you. As for trusting the BMW 800 status that's not very accurate because the next step to that is they'll tell you the car is at the port of authority in the US.
