From previous ordering experiences involving different dealerships, the dealer informed me of production numbers once it was informed by BMW that the ordered was accepted and the production week was set. The amount of time that elapses between "order accepted" and "production week set" can vary considerably. Back in 2005, the production number was forwarded to me within a week. More recently, the order accepted and assignment of a production week separated by almost two months. At least part, if not all, of the lengthy delay in the more recent ordering instance was due to BMW rescheduling production runs of certain models at Regensburg. Once your order is accepted, lean back a sip on a tall glass of Patience because all is going to be fine in the end.
