military sales orders accepted yet?

Has anyone's military sales order been accepted yet (gone 111?). I know we don't have a price yet, but I'm wondering if any of the MSP dealers have recieved allocations and have cars that are at the 111 stage yet (I think mines at 087...).

yeah, I guess they are holding back a bit. My rep just e-mailed me today with the order sheet from entering it into the system (it's 087, like I thought) and mentioned that usually the military pricing comes out about 2-3 weeks after the MSRP is shown on the webpage....

If it is 087, then what is your production week?

under "reqd production week" it says march 12. There's a scheduled production week line underneath that that is blank, though... I think the march production week is just what the dealer has requested for me.. I don't think I have a firm production week yet... just my guess, I've never ordered a new car before (let alone BMW) so this process is a bit new to me.

Well maybe they're waiting till the price is released for mil sales...however I don't see why the 2 week blackout on emails from my agent. Am back stateside now and can't get a peep from anyone at Pent Mil Sales now. Is kinda annoying but I am sure I am not the only customer probably bombarding them now. Hopefully news soon for us all huh?

I'm hoping that this week will be the week... only time will tell. I'm still in country, so either way, it's ticking off the clock for me!

Yeah, i'm having similar troubles trying to get a hold of anyone. I don't get why they are completely ignoring people. Is it really that hard to respond to an email?

Yeah I am like on email #3 that just says hi...here are my tentative options and color choice instead of the baseline ones they put down for me back last Sept since no info was out. Sent the email twice with read response and the only anwser I get is from the cc I sent myself at my .mil email address.

I agree how hard is it to type...please be patient; info forthcoming. LOL

Don't know if this is site specific for mil sales but seems to be the rule now rather than the exception (info blackout!) At this rate hell I'll take an 09 car! LOL

I wanted to have it delivered by mid April here in Germany but I know now that will never happen. I start terminal leave/PTDY on 3 May and have no idea of where I will end up...area/job wise. I also need to purchase a house, again somewhere. So not having the payment until after I know where I will end up and have a house is a good thing. Problem is the longer it takes for me to get an M3, the shorter my desire/BMW loyalty becomes.

I'm in the same boat... I'm half way through a PCS coming from Japan, now on an IA in the sandbox. I don't own a car, I need a house when I get to my new duty station, and I'm hoping the timing won't be so atrocious that it won't be workable. Like you said, though, the longer the time it takes, the better the Mitsubishi evolution X is looking... especially at the price...

Gents...yeah how much you wanna bet that karma and the lovely roll out release that BMW has done with this car will time it so that all come at the same time...your PCS, house purchase, oh and your request for payment for your cars from BMW NA! LOL Then the choice is downside the house by 50k or so to short it for the M3 or get em all IF the bank will let you in the current mortgage ah climate we now find ourselves in! Not a fun pic huh?

ON a side note just got back from the DC Auto show and saw Mr M3 in person! Stunning as all the pics I have seen..the 135i was there to but looked small and didn't seem to be generating as much pics and buzz as the other cars to include the 650i and M6 convertible for christ's sake. BUT I will also say they had an Audi S5 there that did make me think twice as did the R8! WoW is all I can say.

Back to the topic...come on BMW...for christ sakes...has ANY rollout been this bad?

2nd week of Feb production!

Well peeps, apparently I will be given a second week of Feb production lineup with a mid-March transit. My guess is this would arrive on the west coast sometime April?

Of course I have not been given the actual price. They are working with a $50,700 base and my expectation is it will be under that figure. I tried to order the following:

1) Jet Black with black novillo interior/Titanium
2) Comfort access
3) Heated seats
4) Navigation
5) Enhanced premium sound
6) Ipod adapter
7) Park distance control

Then she said I couldnít have the comfort access as a stand-alone option. Also, the premium sound was only $700. I sure hope it isnít the $1900 as reported with the US MSRP release.

In the end nothing has really changed, except I may have a build date of early Feb. It would be quite nice to be driving one a month after the release!
