Week 17 folks

Didn't see a place for week 17 people compare build experience so figured I'd start one. As of yesterday mine is estimated to start production next week with an expected completion of April 23rd-29th. Bmw genius line has been super accommodating and said they don't mind how many times a week someone calls for an update. They're even open on Saturday. Interested to hear other people's week 17 experiences.

I'm also week 17, but haven't called the Genius line yet, so I don't have any updates. I assume updates to the MyBMW site will begin once production starts...hopefully.

Yeah the website is essentially useless as I was told by both the genius line and the dealer that it's multiple days behind real time. Calling is the way to go.

The website and genius platform only get updated once a particular milestone has already taken place.

Just got a text from my dealer with a screen shot showing my car moved into status 150 (Production) this morning (4-6-17). Hopefully, yours isn't far behind.

White, 6-speed manual transmission and that's it. I do wish it didn't come with navigation, but, I can learn to live with it.

What is your configuration?

Good to see there are still people who appreciate a 6MT.

Mineral Grey, 6MT, exec package, black kidneys, black side fins, aluminum pedals. I couldn't care less about the nav either but oh well.

Week 17 here as well.

Just learned this morning that it went into production. It seems to be about a week ahead of schedule, based on what I was expecting. Hope that translates to an earlier than expected delivery.

MG, 6speed

Mine is 6spd and Black
Good question on the tires. With both Continental and Michelin coming out with new versions of the tires in the Pilot Super Sport category, I too wonder.

I can tell you that I just installed a set of the new Conti ExtremeContact Sport tires onto my old 911SC and I like them a lot.

I'm thinking 4-6 weeks after production ends based on what I've read and have been told. But it looks like everyone's production has started a week earlier than expected. Hopefully that helps.

Good to see a bunch of us in the tri-state area. I'm assuming the cars will all be shipped together.

Yeah that would be nice. I read that quite a few week 12-15 folks are experiencing shipping delays. Hope it doesn't cascade down to the later weeks. And hopefully for them it gets rectified soon.

Mine is supposed to end on the April 24th, so we will likely be on the same boat.

Week 17

I'm also in week 17. The BMW Genius says it will complete production by 4/26. I'm hoping it may arrive by the end of May? Stay tuned!
