Shipping Question

Hi everyone, I have a couple of questions. I ordered a 535xi M Sport that was completed on 10/10. When I call the 1800 number the message today 10/11 says awaiting transportation to port. From what i've read here ships leave every 3-4 days to the east coast but from the WW & Kline websites it seems like they are all leaving on Wednesdays only. Is that correct or does it change every week? Also am I being too optimistic to assume my car will be on a ship by Wednesday 10/17? Is it more often that a car sits at port for a week or two or do they generally get on a ship quickly?
From the WW schedule the next ship to leave is the Turandot and then on 10/24 the Aida. For Kline the next ship is the Cosco Nagoya on 10/17. Not sure if this is correct. I'm trying to figure out what ship I might get on.
I currently have a 2009 335i sedan which i'm planning to keep for now. When I bought it, it was already built and on a boat almost in NYC so my wait wasn't too long. This time around it's been somewhat painful lol. Can't wait to get my new 535. Ordered it nearly fully loaded.
