Question about Owner's Circle

I'm sure like most folks waiting on their new car I check the OC regularly to see how my car is progressing. Today I realized in the options listed for my car the OC doesn't include the DCT tranny. I doubled checked my order sheet from the dealer and it is definitely on there. Is this normal? All the other options I selected are shown.

Can you post the link to the owners circle? The link I found was dead. I'll check and then let you know if the same happens to me (I ordered DCT as well).

Mine shows it as an option. But from my last couple of cars, it is usually not complete or if your SA changed the specs on a car they had ordered for stock, all the changes may never show up on the owners circle.

Mine shows correct, but if you do a “search” you will see that many guys have had this problem. For whatever reason BMW does not load every option into the system. Seems like in the past many guys have logged on and not seen 19” wheels and or the Premium sound. I wouldn’t be too worried about it, but you can contact your SA to confirm that he placed the correct order.

OC is far from accurate. My order number, which I was emailed a copy of to confirm, still shows up as a 335i.

Go to the BMW North America website and look in the bottom left corner. You will see a place to both sign in to your account or sign up for a new one.

This morning I check OC again and now it shows the M-DCT under the options list. The car has been in production for a few days now and is scheduled to be finished today. I don't really care what OC says so long as my car arrives optioned out correctly. I also noticed that the 2010 owner's manual is now available for download in the OC.

I found that the OC data could be incorrect and indeed, disappear/reappear during the build. Just recall the CA to check.

No worries, the car will be built according to what your CA entered in the system (of which I assume you got a copy when you ordered the car). When I first logged in the system... I was supposed to receive a Champagne X3!!!!

After a few days (1 week?), it went to a M3 but with wrong color (SSII in place of JB), options (missing the 19"s, ...), etc...

Only when it was already "En Route" did the system show everything accurately.

Hey Cabinetman - unless I'm mistaken... do you want to download the manual (2010) and upload it on to the site?

You might need someone a little more computer smart than me to do that. I can download the PDF files, but I haven't a clue how to upload them to this site. I'm guessing anyone with a 2010 M3 on order that is tracking their car through the OC will have access to the files.

I am tracking mine, but it still shows up as a 335i. As soon as it switched to an M3 I will upload.
