Nope, it's supposed to be week 41, which if I remember correctly means the estimate a week for completion, and not the week that it begins production.

Well my SA just told me the car will be transported to their dealer in an open container like all BMWs- is that dealer specific? Thatís a huge turn off if so - traveling on public roads in an open container during the winter cannot be good for the paint on the car. I may actually bow out of it, whatís the point of delivering it to your house in a closed container and wrapping it if the car already collected chips and other paint damage just making it to the dealer. Winter slush and rain is the absolute worst

It sucks they had to delay production because of covid

Vehicles on a carrier are not likely to get rock chips (they'd have to go through the front of the carrier to get to the cars, which isn't physically possible), and the cars usually still have the plastic outer layer on them. More likelihood of damage unloading/loading frankly. The winter slush and rain isn't that big of a deal either. There is so much production protection crap applied on these that I wouldn't worry about it. Takes forever to get it out of the joints and seams unless your detailer does a great job. Additionally, if you saw the way BMW does the corrosion protection in the factory you wouldn't worry much about it. BMW does a great job on the corrosion front on the new stuff. My X3 is 10 years old, 140,000 miles of salt and not a lot of washes and not a rust bubble anywhere.

I'd be more concerned that if a small detail like this is enough to push you out of buying that you have other concerns or are nervous for other reasons about buying the car.

Just friends eh? We should plan some sort of South East M2 CS thing once these things land.

My neighbor has a BSM w/ Gold / Red on order, should be going into production soon. We both plan on doing PCD in Nov-ish.

If you take his allotment, you can build it your way.
If you donít, there will be many choices around dealers lots for awhile.

Assuming you are in the USA right?

My CA has a CS available and specs can still be customized if you order soon. She will be at msrp or possibly slightly under for the CS. Send me a message if you'd like contact info.

You guys better jump on this, the window closes shortly before these builds go into production and you can't change anything. You'll be stuck with whatever the dealer thinks will sell, which if my experience tells me, it will be some shade of black or white.

Exactly, and I want as few BSM builds as possible so don't let the "man/woman" own you.

Trend seem to be effing ugly then it grows on everybody. Watching the new M3 YouTube ads over and over makes you think twice right? Iím in the acceptance stage at the moment. Although Iím still in denial on the conventional automatic tranny. Killing DCT hurts. Maybe just jump in the Porsche Cayman GT4 bandwagon and call it the day?

I have a F80 and the M3 reconfirmed my order for a M2 CS. Very happy with my ride for the next 5-7 years.

It was tough, but I ended up canceling my order. I feel these cars are going to be discounted in a few months, paying the asking price was too much for me.. in Sweden they have over 7-8 sitting on lots taking discounts and I wonder if the USA market will be similar, especially with the g80.. I don't like how that car looks at all, but are there really 466 hardcore enthusiasts that really understand the value of the CS now and potentially in the future? prob not.. I may regret it later but for you guys that are all in, enjoy it in great health

Same situation in Switzerland. There are actually 15 new CS sitting @ dealership and several are sitting « for long time ».

Yea I think weíll see something similar in the US market. That said, if you got the money to be first to play and you donít care about taking an immediate depreciation hit based on the market, by all means.

But for me it was not only the negative equity on the m2 cs but also the positive equity Iíd be giving up on my current 18 m3 comp. ultimately, as much as I want the car the adult way in me couldnít do it.

Now if In December some of these cars are taking ten percent discounts, Iíd hop on it in a heart beat- I know of two people who canceled their orders to jump on the g80 bandwagon - may be more and i was already seeing a decent volume of allocations available at msrp; the biggest challenge will be finding your spec
