Doesn't sound right to me...

OK, so your CA should be able to give you an actual status. The important ones for you at this point are:

0 Order deleted by NA
17 Order not Specified
37 Order is at BMW NA
87 Production Week Assigned
97 Order sent to AG
100 Order deleted by AG
101 Error in data transmitted
102 Special Order (no Prod Week)
105 Order out of Prod. Period
111 Order Accepted at AG
112 Order scheduled for Production

A production order is in status 87 until it's an order. It moves to 97 when your CA sends the order to BMW in Germany, and moves to 111 when BMW Germany accepts it. I believe that it's at this point that it gets a production number.

You can see on my timeline in my signature that mine moved from 97 to 111 in the space of a day. I was traveling at the time in Europe, so it may have been shorter than 24 hours, but that's the time I checked.

It sounds to me that your CA doesn't have an available allocation, and is stringing you along until he/she does.
