FYI on 09's ... Production has begun!

Just found out mine went into production and will be finished on the 3rd!

I am crossing my fingers for the new iDrive! Regardless, I am pretty excited!

Yep I got my VIN number today, and I know that Captain Scott's went into production as well. I am a one humper so I have no need to worry. Just can't wait to see Le Mans Blue on my M3.

I am also in line this week with a completion date of the 3rd. I can't believe they are building the car and BMWNA still can't tell me what idrive I have.

Or they do not want to for whatever reason!
My guess is, and it's strictly a guess, they don't want to let the cat out of the bag so they can dump as many 08's as possible.

This way it gives the dealer,s in the USA a few more weeks before everybody finds out.

Any other ideas?

They don't want a bunch of cancelled orders? They may figure that if it arrives in the U.S. without the new iDrive, buyers will go ahead and take delivery because they won't want to go through the wait again.

It's still anyone's guess.

can anyone confirm invoice pricing?

Hi everyone,

my CA told me my car went into production, E93 m3

but the invoice pricing he's given me is different from what was posted in the official 2009 pricing page

could anyone confirm this or has seen an official invoice from a bmw dealership?

thanks

Michael

Congrats! I look forward to having a Seattle E9X M3 gathering in the near future.

For some crazy reason, my CA at Bellevue is still having trouble selecting Space Gray for my 09 E90 M3 and therefore my production week is a bit in limbo since he had to move me to Priority 4 until he figures it out. I hope to jump back to a week 3X production once this is all sorted out and I am back to Priority 1.

I just entered status 150. Production set for 9/6/08, last possible day of Week 36. Is a Saturday production car worse than a Friday afternoon car?

Not a big deal, I suppose, but I still can't register my car on OC.

The joke about a Friday afternoon car is that the workers at the factory have their minds on getting out of work and going out Friday night. They're not so focused on your car.

A Saturday car may be worse because those same workers could be suffering the effects of Friday night.

Mate, and you definitely don't want a car being made during World/ Euro Cup - I was in Deutschland in June & people were partying hard on the streets, arrayed around large screen TVs on any night Germany was playing Whoever thinks the Germans are dour needs to be in Bavaria when they are enjoying the summer months to be quickly disabused of that notion
