Read all the way down to the section once a car is being shipped here in the US:
How-To: Follow a new BMW from Order, to Shipping and to Delivery
And when I bought my '08 4.8 from Beverly Hills BMW they said they will only ship enclosed long haul due to risk (pretty obvious). When mine got here to Dallas from Los Angeles the dealer already had 3 brand new BMWs inside---2 going to Houston dealers (one being an X5M) and the other to Louisiana.
