My rockin' CA from Southbay BMW in LA, Cali ordered me a new 2009 Interlagos Blue Fox Red DCT M3 e90 Sedan right in front of me with Week 41 Production. Today meaning Sept. 5, 2008. I didn't even pay for it yet and he ordered it.
M3 e90 Sedan Allocations in the US are very slim as in each dealership might have only 1-2 for September and they might be gone already. Allocations for Coupes are higher.
I think the CA mentioned a Priority 5 Allocation which allows you to get an earlier build date if available.
BTW One bad thing about Week 40-43 Production Dates and one word sums it up....
Octoberfest.... It is legal to show up for work completely plastered.
I will probably end up with a VW, BMW, Mini, Opal Frankenstein Car. (j/k).
