I just got confirmed today for my e90 order to replace my '08 e90. Does anyone know if any '12 changes will be applied to the new build e90s even though they will be branded '11s?

And the answer is? Congrats, you must have gotten one of the last allocations. I keep toying with the idea of replacing my 08... Did you change much from your 08?

November PC delivery. Got the Comp. Package and DCT this time. I had SMG on my e60 M5, wasn't happy with it and got the 6mt on the '08 M3. Then I drove one with DCT. BIG difference! Was going to get the F10 M5, but that is one big sucker! Too big for the track (same experience with the e60). IMO, the M3 is the most balanced package out there right now.

You should see a $1000 savings after Sept 1 depending on the options chosen.

Congrats! My e90 just entered production.

BTW, did your price show up correctly? With the next Premium 3 and Convenience 2 packaging, the automated system is double charging me for nav. My dealer claims this will all get corrected before the car arrives

For me, the dealer showed me the online build which updated the package configurations per 2012 arrangement (Premium 3, Convenience 2). This is described in one of the stickied threads here:

Yeah, my online build for my E90 is the same, has ZP3 and ZC2. Has not yet entered production through as I'm doing ED in mid October.

Mine just entered 150 status with a build date of Sept. 7th.

Are you getting overcharged for nav also? My vehicle inquiry report charges me for both packages (plus cold and competition), but also charges me $3k for nav separately

I've been trying to figure out my inquiry report lately as well due to these changes, since the numbers have come out differently. I'm not getting charged on the report for 7KB, but I am getting charged for the extended leather which I thought got a reduced price due to ZP2/3...

Hard to figure out what is going on when the options change like this. I wonder if on September 1st our reports will change?

As of a week ago, there were 15 e90 M3 allocations left in the US listed as Priority 3, 4, or 5 (i.e. the cars are not spoken for yet) in status 111 (i.e. not scheduled for production, can still make changes to order). My dealer grabbed one of those for me from California. To get an allocation from another dealer, the dealership general manager has to call the other dealership and ask/beg/bribe them. The other dealership doesn't have to give it up (unless it's listed as Priority 5, which they never are). So it all depends on how motivated your dealer is to work for you. Not sure what the status now is, but you'd better hurry ...

Also I'm getting mine through ED, but I don't know if it is still possible to get one that way or not.

Either get your dealer to help or contact some of the CAs that are on the board.

Although I would guess the remaining allocations ate getting finalized as the final orders have to get placed soon. So the dealers with allocations are ordering cars they think they will be able to sell easily.

I got the same runaround from local dealers. After some diligence, I secured an allocation for an October build. Hunt around and you may be able to find something; it's getting harder, though.

I think it helps if they know you're a serious buyer. They don't want to go to all the trouble of getting an allocation only to have you walk away. I'd bought a car from my CA before, and it was clear that I was serious and ready to buy. He also knew that he wasn't going to be able to convince me to buy some other car they had on the lot. Not sure if it matters if you're planning to lease vs. buy.

It only took him 5 minutes to pull up all remaining allocations in the US. So it's not like figuring out if there are any left is a huge burden.
