428i at the port - long wait?

I've had what seems like a fast track for my new 428i order. I placed the order mid-March and got a production date of 3/26. It finished April 2 and was at the port on the 4th.

From the advice on this site it appears that the Figaro, which arrived in port yesterday, is the next ship headed to Port Hueneme on the 8th.

My car's status says it is awaiting a ship assignment. From the experiences others have had, do I have a shot of getting on this ship or will I have to wait on the next one 2 weeks later?

I've confirmed that mine is on the Figaro and will be here in California around May 1. I got very lucky so far.

This is all about logistics, but at times it does seem illogical.

I was a bit disappointed when a ship left after my car was at port a few days and the tracking service said it was still waiting on a ship. Well, 2-3 days later I found out I actually was on that ship and their tracking service can run a few days behind. If it looks like you miss the Figaro I'd check back in 2-3 days later and you may be surprised.
