Yes, I did order the 19s, but for some reason they never show up in anyone's order summary on the Owner's Circle website.

It took me about three weeks to go from On Order to Scheduled for Production. I lucked out though in terms of having this car being built so quickly. You should call your dealer and ask what the ETA is on the car being built. They can tell you that.

Things are going to move slowly and sporadically at ramp up. You can call BMWUSA and get current status, along with each of your status change dates, if your dealer is not responsive. You're probably at status 112 now, so 150 should come soon.

Yea Greg is right. Call and do a little poking around. Also, whats your position on the list? I put a deposit down last year and im #7, so i probably wont see a production number for another few months...

When my status was at 112 I noticed that they had an expected build date already set. Meaning my production slot had to be built by Feb 6th I believe and my guess why is, they already have a ship date set for my vehicle as well. I think it all depends on what production week your production slot is set for then from there you will know approx 3 to 5 weeks for production and shipment. I think once your in 112 status you have no more then 1 months time before you enter production.

My order was also rushed as it was entered with the Dealership owner vehicle for production. It helps when you have a history with the dealer.

On the Vehicle Inquiry, "Req. Prod: 2008/02/06" means February week 6, not February 6.
