ED confirmation time frame

Hey everyone,
I placed my order at the dealership for an e93 ED almost two weeks ago (Sat. 16th) and I then chose my 3 days for pick up (July 15ish frame). My CA mentioned earlier today that he is still waiting on the confirmation. How long does this usually take? I assume the production number and stuff will come with this confirmation? I thought it would take like a week or so to get confirmed but not sure what the time frame is. So I am still waiting. I guess it might be because a lot of people might be getting their car around that time as well and the ED folks are slammed?

I placed an ED order on March 26th and received a confirmation e-mail (with production number and delivery date) on April 14th.

Wow^^ 28 days. At the end of the 28 days was this when your CA emailed you the confirmation letter or when you got the package in the mailbox by BMW NA?

Hmm...the lag for getting a confirmation from BMW ED should be no more than two business days. I changed my confirmation twice because I wanted to wait for "BMW Apps". Each time the confirmation was 1 or 2 days later. I wonder if your dealer has some allocation shenanigans going on.

Yes...your looking at Peak Season and it's crazy to arrange an ED slot during that part of year. Your in good hands with Ryan, he's a straight shooter and will take care of you!!!

28 days for the confirmation email. I got the package in the mail like two weeks after I put in my order. I also ordered with Ryan and Steve Thomas, so I really didn't worry (too much). I can tell you the waiting sux!

Both of you are set in the very capable hands of Ryan.

I will say it again.... ED is the ONLY way to buy a new BMW.

My ED was only a month ago and I envy you guys already!!

Did you guys sign a purchase order before your ED date was confirmed or does that happen after the date is confirmed?

I don't recall if the signed PO is contingent on a ED date but the PO must be signed 30 days before your ED. I signed mine approx 45 days before my ED. Hope that helps.
