Dealer messed up allocation

My dealer messed up my allocation which was originally for March build and now he tells me May or later. I have had a 2k deposit down since last summer. I have been very skeptical and now I have been screwed. I want the coupe so bad and now a couple more months or more? I need to find another dealer (in state or out of state).

Are you kidding me? It's BMWNA's fault for giving dealers excess allocations that they eventually withdrew from the dealers. The salesman isn't at fault here.

I went out of state. I don't know of any allocations around Dallas. I talked to Moritz and they are telling me maybe a May build. Still in same boat. I would be willing to go with any (MSRP) dealer in the US who can get me a March or April build allocation.

Yes, that is true. However, they weren't excess allocations. Newbold had those sold.
