my build:

2013 E92 6MT

Frozen Grey/ Rust Brown

Competition Pkg
Premium Pkg
Cold Weather Pkg
Sat Radio
Enhanced Premium Sound
BMW Apps
Auto High Beams

if production on the E92 ends mid june, mine will be close to the last batch built.

i don't know if that's a good or bad thing yet.
Awesome!!

I'm sure BMW, especially since it's been accepted by BMW Individual, will build your car.

oh, i have no doubt that the car will be built. i went through Steve Thomas BMW, working with Francesca over there...so, i have no fears. at this point the car has a production number, it's just waiting to get built.

what i meant was , being that close to the end of production....that could mean that the BMW production line was so experienced in the E92 production, that that would guarantee a solid, quality build.....or it could mean, that since they are closing this production line....maybe setting up/retooling to build something else....that things could get sloppy.

I wonder the same thing about being the last on the line...I ordered a '13 Individual (inside and out) in February and the car is still "on order", not in production yet.

I'm starting to get the feeling that of the two scenarios you described, it's the latter.

you've been waiting a little longer than i have....what has your dealer said about your wait time?

at least on the individual end , i'm sure that there are more careful than ever, given that problem i mentioned in my original post. Steve Thomas and Francesca are my dealers , so i have faith in what they tell me.

BTW, what is your build?

I am in the same boat. I ordered an individual color in and out. I ordered mine on March 27th. I just checked it and its waiting for a ship. Might want to check with your dealer.

strange how it works out...i ordered earlier than you by a couple of weeks and your's waiting to get shipped now.

i'm sure that has a lot to do with when a dealer has an allocation coming up. i can see a lot of dealers taking deposits before they know exactly when that allocation will go into production.

cool to see more of these individual inside and out orders. what is your build?

free key chains, that's cool of them to do at least.

i'm getting my M3 from STBMW,too...is that how they presented the car to you, on the showroom floor?

that's cool,too...better than having you sign papers and rushing you out the door.

Yes, other than bugging BMWNA, our CA's are all at the mercy of Regensberg and their closeout schedule. I think they are bundling these last [Individual] builds together to run out in a final group. As we joked about before, I just don't want them to build the car with any of the scraps from the boneyard in the chaos of a production line transition. In reality, we've nothing to worry about, they've got these processes and their systematic transitions down to a science-it'll be fine.

They were constructing the production line for the F3X adjacent to the E9X line when I was there in the summer of 2010, so we don't have to worry about them building our cars at the same time that they're de-constructing or re-tooling.

We're definitely not in the same boat though, figuratively or otherwise. I ordered a while ago and am currently only "scheduled for production" status.
Our dealers have zero communication with Regensberg and can only provide what information is made available through New Jersey, but thanks for your suggestion.
