It doesn't work for ED. Mine shows it all the way through as though the car is home. I dropped it in Frankfurt on Monday 6/11.

FYI it appears that the Marinetraffic website also has satellite tracking, 3 day free trial then $16 for the month, this is cheaper than the other posted satellite website, in case you forgot to cancel your trial you dont get stuck with a $200++ bill.

I am in Miami too. My M3 also got completed today and is awaiting carrier assignment. I would not be surprised if your car and mine make the trip to the US together and arrive the same day.

It all depends on the allocation availability of the dealer. Depending on the build week allocation they have available, you can figure around 2 weeks of build time (for standard, non-individual options) and then 4-6 weeks of transport to the US, get through VPC, etc. I think best case you're looking at September.

I ordered mid-April and picked up at Performance Center (which adds a week or two to delivery time) in late June. Allocations on an M4 shouldn't be hard to find. However, I don't know what the summer production cycle is like. Delivery times could extend if factories close or slow down for European-style vacations. There are probably some other threads with better information than this one.

I could potentially be on the same boat. My M3 is in transit heading for the west coast. Haven't called in to see which boat it boarded yet.
