But it looks as though things are back on track for my ED order, albeit with another dealer. No markup, same pricing structure as before this whole fiasco. In fact, I'm getting an even better deal and quicker delivery, production number in hand.
Yes it's certainly frustrating, but the sky isn't exactly falling...yet. Best of luck to everyone and try not to get too disheartened...you may actually come out better off.
Received my production number last night from David Aviles at Northwest BMW. I initially contacted him back in June, but hadn't received a production number when BMW shut down ED orders a week or so back. I was stressed, but kept faith in Dave and he came through.
I didn't ask him if he had to give up a Dealer Allocation, no doubt he's been extra busy w/ customers of other dealers contacting him for allocations. I am grateful for whatever work he put in to keep my order alive. Efforts like this earn customer loyalty.
