Ugh, my car is supposed to arrive at the dealer today, and pick up is scheduled for Friday.

How soon do we find out if our car is affected? I guess it's encouraging to know it's only a select few, and not all cars produced between those dates.

Just called BMW Customer Relations, sounds like there's a very good possibility of my M2 (June Build) being affected. The representative said that the car would be fixed at the Processing center in Galveston, TX before being shipped to the dealer, and said it would cause a small delay.

Unfortunately they don't know whether the car is affected or not until it arrives at the port, they don't have a list of VINs affected.

I am wondering if this has anything to do with the "production delay" mentioned in another thread where the factory is working out a kink. Perhaps 202 vehicles slipped through before the issue was detected?

On the brighter side, it's 202 vehicles -- that's got to be a small number compared to total daily output for BMW factories. The odds on it being yours is smaller than you think.

Either way, good luck to all.

My M3 is scheduled for delivery tomorrow, July 20! I was told today of the stop and I don't know exactly what is going to happen other than not being able to drive my car out of the Welt.
I have not been able, nor was my CA able to confirm if the Delivery/Presentation of the vehicle will even take place.
My gf is flying in tonight from Atlanta, I and my brother are flying in tomorrow morning from Dublin after just having completed a four day golf trip and my sister in law flew in from NYC yesterday and is waiting on us.
My car is an Individual paint which I have never seen in person. The car has been sitting at the Welt for 5 to 6 weeks. If I don't at least get to see my car tomorrow I don't know what I will do.
I am so upset and disappointed that I don't know how to react so I am not going to until I see what actually transpires in about 14 hours.
Will keep you all posted.

2) Cancel my ED trip altogether and the car gets shipped directly to dealer.
Take their car! They will give you twin to what you ordered. Then go enjoy their car and keep yours pristine!

Sorry you've got to go through all that. I'm ticked off that my M2 is stuck at the dealer with this stop delivery order, but I can't imagine being in your position. I would have gone nuclear...

It sucks you won't be able to break in your car on the Autobahn but it would still be an epic trip nonetheless

I called the genius Hotline about an hour ago and they told me that all cars had been identified and mine is not one of the affected ones...

I wonder which genius rep is right...hopefully mine

Interesting! Maybe this is why they had a "factory production delay" @ the bmw factory for the m2 in June.

My vehicle is probably affected. I just returned from my ED where they couldn't deliver my F80 (although I got to see it and sit in it). Mine wasn't delivered for other reasons (they lost the ED plates). They put me in a 740i - not the best car for euro travels, but we made it work. You may end up in the same car that I dropped of yesterday. I would still do the trip, but stress to them to ship you car immediately. As a first time BMW owner, they haven't handled my experience well, but it looks like they are going to recover OK, but we will see if they come through.

My car is at the port waiting on a ship. I'm guessing it's affected as it was a mid June build, though I'm not going to call right away and check. It's already a long wait, so I guess it's going to be a bit longer.

Ugh...this probably means I'll have to take it easy again for another 1,200 miles to break in the new diff. Already did that on my ED. Hope my car is not one of them.

Just great!

Just learned that I'm affected. I am leaving to Munich in 2days planning to pickup my first M3 this Friday.

I cannot begin to describe how I am feeling at the moment. My flights and hotels are all booked, all of which are non-refundable at this point.

How could BMW do this just 2days into my delivery?!

I'm so pissed!

I called customer relations and they told me that it is a matter of parts that need to be replaced in the rear differential and there is no supply of parts at this time. There is no way of taking my car "as-is" for ED and then having them repair later. BMW ED dept is in a big meeting right now trying to figure out next steps for ED customers like me taking delivery in the next week. They said they will be calling me in back in the next day or so as the office closes at 4:30pm est.
This is fucking me so bad also. My M4 is affected and im scheduled to take delivery in Munich next Tuesday. Not happy at all!!!!!!!
