My 330 Cic left the factory on April 18th (I'm pretty sure), arrived at the port (Bremerhaven) on Friday the 19th, and was loaded on the Blue Hawk which left port on Saturday the 20th. So in my case, it was at the port one day before being loaded. Currently scheduled to arrive in California on 5/16.
My 330Ci arrived in Bremerhaven on Friday. I was sure it was going to get loaded on one of the two April 29 (Monday) boats headed over here (and so was the BMWNA customer service rep on the phone), but apparently it missed the boats and is still sitting there, all alone and shivering in the cold <a href="http://www.weather.com/weather/hourbyhour/GMXX0015">rain</a>.
Depending on the congestion at the port, it can take anywhere from a day to two weeks for it to be loaded on a boat.
My 3er was status 160 - Released to Distribution on 23 April. According to BMWNA it was loaded on MV Tagus in Bremerhaven on 29 April and is enroute NY. (10 Day voyage to NY) The Owner's Circle didn't have it "En Route" until today.
