If I knew a date, even within a couple weeks, I would be a happy camper.

I'm not getting my hopes up but I called 1-800 rep today and she said my car is scheduled for week 10, I was week 16. I know I don't have jack until it goes 150 but I'll take it for now. Will call next week to see if it happens or not.

It'll be interesting to see what happens this weekend or come Monday!
As of yet, I still haven't seen one person with DCT go into production.

That is the key issue my friends. Week 10 manual cars are in production. Why aren't the week 10 DCT cars in production as well? I hope there is no new bug/delay, and you guys get your cars asap.

Hopefully BMW is just following protocol. March production is supposed to be the start of DCT production. I'm still not holding my breath.

If that is true, March being start of DCT production then i feel alot safer. It seems like we are the first batch, the "guinea pigs" I think that is why all other orders outside the U.S. is getting pushed back, they want to see how these trannys do for a few months before offering it to the rest of the world.

Makes sense right?

My CA just emailed me this morning and said my car is scheduled to roll off the assembly line on 7 March. He didn't tell me if I was in 112 or 150/151. I assumed 112 but perhaps it's actually 150/151. I should have a VIN in the next few days.

Just curious if the other 2 in production cars have 18 or 19 inch wheels. A few weeks back the 19s were going to cause a delay, I'm wondering if that held true or not. I ordered 18s.
