Is it possible to order one and change the tranny (or any other detail) at any time before it's built? Or once it's ordered is it set in stone?
Typically, once your dealer has an allocation that is configurable, the order is placed and it is Status 111 when accepted by BMW AG. From that point you normally have at least 4 weeks to go through status 112, after which it is locked. Every order is different, though.
Until June, however, DCT orders are limited, so you will get a later build date if you order with DCT. If you order with manual and then change the order to DCT, you may get pushed back a few weeks.
