I initially went to Passport in November, 2007 and was told that they were not taking orders on the car at that time. I called again in mid January, 2008 and was told by my sales guy that they were now taking orders but my car would not be delivered until Sep 2008. Confused, I asked how could you go from not taking orders in late 11/2007 to taking orders in early 1/2008 and come up with a delivery of Sep 2008? I got a B.S. answer.
Early 2/2008 I went to VOB and was told that they had a status 111 that could take delivery March or April latest. Because I opted for DCT, I had to wait longer. I made a deposit and was told that I would probably finalize my specs by late march when BMW allocates the next round of DCT's. Basically, the wait is killing me.
