Pulling Ahead with Production before August

I placed order on E92 M3 July 9th. When I checked with BMW customer relations 800# on Thursday July 16th, it said,- Estimated Production Completion July 28th. I checked again this morning, Monday July 19th, and it said,- Estimated Production Completion July 23rd !!! That is great news (that is if it is accurate), looks like they are really pulling ahead with production before August Shut Down.

Order Placed,- 07/09/10
In Production,- 07/16/10
Estimated Completion,- 07/23/10

It is kind of fast, isn't it?

UPDATE:

This M3 has been born July 23 2010

Did you take delivery yet?

If you did, how long for shipping and delivery?

It is really fast... to build but,

4 weeks on ship?

Whats the average time going through VPC? I heard its unpredictable, could be a while or could be rushed?

Well you gotta remember, west coast cars have to go a LOT farther on the boat than east coast deliveries.

I've heard VPC times can vary a lot too, especially if there is an unexpected issue like the recent seat module problem they had.

Otherwise, it seems as though new cars are cleared through customs while on the boat, and cars that are custom ordered get through the VPC first. I'm hoping I'll have my car by this weekend.

^^^^^

BMW Customer Relations Automated Line 800- 831-1117 you will need your production # or your vin to get info.

Also, when prompted for you to say your production # , instead of saying it, you can simply punch in the #s
