Status 112 for My U.S. Car!!1!

Thought I'd give a little update about the production of my car. It went into status 112 today, which means they're collecting the parts for the car, and early next week it'll go to 150, or assembly. Also, I setup a courtesy delivery at South Bay BMW instead of the car going to my dealership in IL. They want $500 to do it, so do you guys think that's a fair price?

Congrats. I'm about a month behind you. Your specs are frozen at 112, right?

Correct. I added PDC yesterday as my last option, so that's the end of it.

Awesome!! Your US order seems to be the farthest along on this board.
Keep us posted.

You didn't have any warning it was going 112, did you?

Well, good you had one last chance to change something.

Basically, you are locked in and have no idea what the price of the car is you ordered. So f'ed up!

They basically have me by the balls, but I guess that's part of the price I pay for being one of the first to get the car. Here's the final spec:

I can't believe BMW actually let it get to this point.

Big negative for BMW.

So i was at BMW today in Westlake, CA and i talked to a guy about pricing and he said they release price info on the 2nd of every month and they didn't get anything on the M3 yet.....he also said that they did the same with the E46, they waited til just about the time they hit the show room

looks like the 1series is taking the spotlight since it's more of a Volume Production car and the M3 is a niche market
