Released to carrier? Ship Independence II

I called 800# today, and the automated voice is telling me that. "Your vehicle production is complete, awaiting to be released to carrier." Can someone tell me is my car at the docks of Bremerhaven, or still around the factory of Regensburg?
I guess my car will be on the Independence II, since there is a huge gap between 13th and 19th... If nothing goes wrong the ship will dock 1/04/08.
Who else's car will potentially be on Independence II as well??

I think that means it's left the factory. If I remember correctly, the voice system says something different when it is at the port, like "awaiting a vessel." But that info is about 3 days delayed. Your CA is the only person who can tell you the location of your car in real-time. The BMW reps can't track it once it reaches the port.

Yeah, mine is awaiting a vessel. Sucks knowing it's built but its still 2-3 weeks away.

I think I'll be on this ship also, I finished production on 3/7. The 800 # tells me it is awaiting transport but has no vessel info.

The automated 800# does not give you any shipping info when your car makes it onto a ship. It simply says "your vehicle is in transit".
