Anyone ordered on New Year's?

i placed my order on new year's eve, 12/31/2010, and the status was immediately 112. my CA said, "if you order now, it's gonna get here fast." 2 weeks later, it's still stuck at 112.

this is my 4th bimmer, 3rd on order, so you'd think i'd learn to have some patience. i understand the factory was on vacation until 3 days ago but damn, 2 weeks and no movement, i just had to vent.

anyone else order around that time with a different story?

Ordered on 12/30/10 and was told it would be a week 6 build, so not too surprised I am still at 111. All depends on which slot was used for your allocation and where it was in the system at the time.

Ordered on 12/21. Have a week 4 build. Currently in status 112. In other news though, I'm doing PCD and just got an email with my delivery date: 3/16/11!!!

Trying to get it moved to 3/18 as there are 2 others on here that are taking PCD on that same date. Would be an awesome photo op!

Ha! Patience is definitely not one of my virtues. This being the 3rd time of me going through this process, it sure isn't getting any easier.

How can 8 days difference in ordering offset the delivery date by over a month? That's just not right.

The car still sitting in Germany...

I would guess that your dealer was BS'ing you and his earliest allocation was much later than the other poster. You took advantage of the $1500 winter incentive...right?

He said it was status 112 when I placed my order. in fact, that's what it said on my order sheet as well. But it took good 3 weeks before it actually went into production. Now it's going to be 3rd week sitting at the port.

I ordered on 12/31 to get that $1500 credit. I did change the interior a couple days later (from 2tone to beige) so that better not have erased the credit.

Good, your actually saving $2,000 because you skirted the MSRP increase as well. You'll be fine. I have changed my build a couple of times and still have the all of the incentives locked in. I ordered on 12/28.

ahh, that's right, i forgot about the MSRP increase. the website actually started showing the new MSRP before 1/1/11 so when i was ordering, my build price came up $500 more than my CA's so we were trying to figure out what option i checked and he didn't.

in any case, i ordered my 330i at the beginning of november 2005 and the car was at the dealer on 12/22/05. i ordered my 335i on 12/28/07 and took delivery on 2/22/08. i ordered the M3 on 12/31/10 and today (2/15/11), it's still sitting in germany. so it's definitely the slowest order i've ever experienced.
