WK 36!

I received my production number on june 17, and this morning, I received my production date: Wk of 9/4 from my salesman. Online and via phone, it still shows no production date, but he said he just received the info so I assume it hasnt entered the system yet. He said at this point Im looking at a mid Oct. delivery.

I'll be there on the 5th.

Week 36 here as well but I requested dates between 9/4 and 9/10? Not familiar with the 3 week lag.

Week 36 here as well. Just got a confirmation for it. Should probably expect it to arrive mid-October to early-November latest! The wait is pretty much killer.

Mine will be delivered in week 39 in Switzerland... don't know production date though. If any of the ED wants to go for a ride, would be cool.

So I too have a sort of similar story. Was number 4 in the order bank at a local dealer. Thought I'll be lucky to get a car by the end of the year. Then get an e-mail from my CA on 7/5 that an allotment just opened (I assume someone backed out) and he confirmed my order details and gave me my production number.

I decided finally today I might as well give this "BMW Genius" number a try and low and behold production began already as of 7/6 with a estimated completion of 8/9!!! So I guess that is week 32 also! Current status is "hold for engineering data" - can't remember what status number that is but crazy.

To the OP, from the looks of things I imagine my car is just a "few"(?) ahead of yours on the assembly line - and pretty much optioned the same.

Yup... They'll be waving at each other.

Week 36 too

Just talked to BMW Genius and confirmed what CA has told me (Week of Sept. 4).
I am doing PCD, so I assume car will be in Spartanburg/Greer some time in October.
I still cannot see status on BMWUSA website, can any of you?

Another question, at what point do we have to "pay" for the car (finance, lease, etc.). I assume I need to show up at PCD with my license plate (or temp tag), I doubt they will give a SC temp tag.

Started out week 35 then went to week 38 and now I'm at week 36. All over a period of a month. Is this normal?

A number of others on here have made similar reports, so it sure seems normal.

I just called GENIUS and started at 40 and now I am 36. Looks like the common theme is production is faster than expected.

Wow, that seems to be awfully long from start to finish. According to the guide, it normally takes 1-2 weeks from status 150 to 155. Must be a mass vacation been taken leaving a few poor souls working.

Looks like I moved up as well from week 36 to 32, which is 8/10. How the heck am I supposed to book reasonable travel less than one month out? Has anyone from ED reached out to them yet about arrangements? Crickets here...

Got bumped to week 33 from 36! Pretty excited~ Talked to BMW Genius and they gave me a rough estimate of arrival at the dealership. Was told if production starts when stated, earliest I should receive it is mid September and the latest would be early October! Don't know if I can believe those estimates though...
