When will BMW start building RHD M2s?

Got an idea that BMW normally starts building RHD (for UK, AU etc) a bit later after LHD. Anyone here will have the best guess on the first batch of RHD M2s be available?

Thx!!

Somewhere on here it was mentioned that the firewall was symmetrical so there is no difference if the car is left or right hand drive in terms of build time.

However the best way to see is when you get given a build slot by your dealer, have you orderd / plan on ordering?

I actually placed my deposit couple months back. But I still haven't heard anything about the production date yet.

UK dealers will have demonstrators for 16th April, so RHD production will have to start soon.

UK production started, and dealers demos have been completed. They're in 'EU storage', wherever that is.

I imagine they're somewhere between here and Germany. I suspect Luxembourg - seems like a safe bet. Not much happens there so no questions asked...
