Anybody else on the Madame Butterfly

Well, after calmly waiting for some changes on the OC and 800#, I've finally gotten confirmation that I'm on a boat going stateside.... I believe it's the Madame Butterfly since it's the only ship going to the west coast from Bremerhaven on the date that BMW cust. serv. told me. Mantis is on it as well... anybody else? how do we track this puppy going across the pond? transit days looks like 24 days? what... can't we put turbos on these things to get them here quicker anyway, just glad that the journey is slowly coming to an end.....

I just emailed my CA... see how he responds... So, do you think it's safe for me to get back my other deposit from my 2nd stealership? I still haven't gotten a prod. no. for that... just making sure, no matter what, I get an M3, that's all

no cars, but sailors need to rest besides those ships dont ONLY ship cars man

check the schedule on the website, it tells you where it's landing and for how long and when it's taking off again

What does your automated 1800# say when your car is on a ship? Does it still say waiting at the port of exit for a vessel?

All jokes aside I will ask my pal if he has any pictures from inside a carrier.
