I really don't see how extended leather can be the holdup if regular leather is still available...

I had a similar delay issue. Put my order in for sedan on Dec 28 with 19" rims. Had an original build week of week 6; then week 9.

During week 8 I called BMW and they had pushed me to week 15 (because of 19" wheel delay). Shortly thereafter, I was moved to week 14; and ended up being produced during week 13 (completed today).

I think its hard for them to predict build-weeks out that far...but also a pain in the ass that they can't plan better for supplies/parts. When was this company started? Last week?

Hang in there--chances are, they will move you back up again.

I actually also placed my order back in November but in addition the dealer has my $2000 deposit from July 07 and my $10,000 trade in from Nov 07 and still a delay!!!

Our cars are close. Mine should be finished tomorrow or Wed. I also floated around and ended up going earlier than their estimate.

That's great but I would double check because I called this am and the rep originally told me again week 15 but I told him to double check and he said he made a mistake and actually still at week 24.

Best way is to call your CA and ask hime to look it up for you

I think they're telling everyone 24 because the supply seems unpredictable. Then, when they are sure they have some parts, they move people up.

There's a reason why *everyone* gets pushed back to 24, or was 19 before. It's worst case scenario, which has sadly worsened.

Oy.

EDIT: Yeah, someone in this thread already said the same thing.

Not when things repeatedly get pushed back and not pushed forward

at a certain point, i am going to think about holding off an additional few months for a 2009 model. my eta is already miod-July for delivery and if that gets bumped out even more, i'm backing out of 2008 model.

I think its too close from the initial launch to already have a upgraded version available, doing this will hurt future sales of new models and not truly benificial to upgrade within a short period....I say the upgrade will if any will take place in 2010/11
