How long between "On Order" and production?

My car is sitting under "On Order" according to the Owner's Circle. How long did everyone else wait before it went into production? I think I'm the only person with a #1 allocation without a car being built.

Have your CA get your exact production status by doing a vehicle inquiry on the DCS. I was status 111 for 2 weeks, 112 for 3 weeks, 1 week for production and 10 days to ship out. The report will list the date when each status change occurs.

Moral of the story is: OC is useless! Call your CA for up to date information.

My CA is just as useless, that's what sucks. It took him 2 weeks after I got bumped to #1 to get my order in...

It sounds like you might have gotten side-tracked on this one--meaning, he might have slipped others in front of you if they agreed to pay more. Actually, the SAs down have much say in that process. The sales/ordering manager makes the calls. I don't see how you don't have an in production order if you are indeed #1 on your dealer's list. I was #4 at a small dealer, and was mostly likey bumped up to #3 or #2, and my car is currently in production.

I was #3. #2 backed out and then #1 decided on a 1-series. He's been slow about doing things since I first contacted him.

Speak to the Sales Manager, never deal with a nitwit.
