When am I going to get my car

I order a 08 AW M3 in Feb. They tried to get me a Feb car but missed out, so they gave me a Apr prod # it's supposed to be here by the end of May. I still can't get a confirmation from the dealer or customer relations weather or not the car is built and when it will get here. Worse they wanted my 03 M3 when we did the deal so they long sold my car and I'm still waiting.

Is their any other way to find information out. I'm located in toronto Canada so the tracking information does not apply, they keep sending me to BMW canada CR department and they send me back to the dealer and the dealer can't tell me anything but it will be here in May.

I hope they're paying you interest on the money they are holding from your old car. I've never heard of a dealer taking your trade in car months before delivering your new car.

You need to go in and stand on the sales manager's desk until he gives you an answer that's backed up by an official printout from BMW CA.

we'll at first I didn't mind because it was still snowing and the car was rarely driven even when nice. Plus getting rid of the car early gave me a change to save some money. I didn't have any more insurance thats why I did that, plus the car was a track car so I wanted to give myself time to piece it out and get some money back to put into the new one. I did all that and now the wait is killing me, I know it was a bit stupid but I just want to know whats the deal with my new M.

If you have a production number you can sign on to oc.bmwusa.com and register to check the status. You can poke around to find the tracking section.

Or you can call BMWNA and check your "vehicle production status" (sexy female recording) with your production number. The number is on this forum somewhere, just do a quick search.

Ok I just opened my phone to save you the time: 1-800-831-1117 (I used to call every day).

If both of those don't give you much info then ask your CA "wtf is up w/ my car?". I'm not sure if having a production number means you have allocation or not so oc.bmwusa.com may or may not work.

Enjoy and happy waiting.

Oh snap. Looks like you'll be waiting a while then. You don't have allocation. Unless Canada is different? Read through that tracking sticky on E90post.

You can surrender your trade-in car early to get the best price of you can surrender it later but, most probably, the trade-in price will be lower.

Can't track a Canadian car on the US website.
