My 2009 Is Finished With Production

Is anyone elses? My CA e-mailed me today to tell me my car is finished with production and is waiting to get on a boat now. He also gave me a PCD date of 10/27 so now I finally know when I will first get to set my eyes on the E92 M3 Le Mans Blue hawtness. The BMW OC of course still shows the car in production. I asked my CA to see if he could find out what boat it will be on so I can get the complete obsessive experience of tracking it across the Atlantic.

10/27! That's 2 months worth of shipping. Is that correct?

I'm doing PCD. There is an additional delay for that. I think others have PCD dates before I do. I think someone said around 10/23 for their PCD.

Mine finishes production tomorrow: 04/09/08. And my PCD pickup date is 23 Oct (PCD told me that would be the earliest date for a 2009). And a contact at Werks Regensburg has confirmed the new iDrive version for my M3; in fact he said all M3s and 3-series built starting 1 Sept would get the new version
Life is good

Want to hear something funny ?
The day after we had a chat, I went to the dealer to change the color to you guessed it! same as you.

Low and behold sitting on the showroom floor there sat an E 92 Interlagos blue. I said you know, looks great. Tracked my CA down to make the change.

She looked in the computer and said, sorry, to lateeeeeeee, NO changeeeeee as the car was already in production.

Oh well, I said that's the way cookies crumble. I will be out your way the beginning of OCT. Let.s get together and go see the Kirby Clunk, and have a Scotch.

Talk to you soon

That's a funny story! So, you're going with the Space Gray? At least you had a chance to see the IB in person. Too bad it was too late to change colors though.

Looking forward to getting together in Oct.

My color selection went from Sparking Graphite, which was cut for '09, to Space Gray, which I really liked until I happened to see an IB M3 at the local dealer. Fortunately, I had plenty of time to change my order. It's almost unbelievable how much better the IB looks in person than in pictures. The best pictures on the forum in terms of capturing the true look of IB are Epacy/Reincarnated's.

Still, you gotta be happy with the Space Gray. If not their favorite, it's probably in everyone's top three colors for the M3. I had Silver Gray (almost the same color) on my E46, my truck is silver, and every one of my past cars has been silver or gray, so I wanted something different.

Scott, your car had almost a week's head start. Hopefully my car can make up some time at the VPC or in transit.

Hi all,

my base E93 in jet black w/ fox red finished production when i called in yesterday and it told me my car's getting transported to the vessel.

not sure how long it takes to get to the west coast, and the rep was not able to tell me which vessel my car would be loaded on, she told me to check with my CA next week.

my guess is it should arrive at the dealership 2nd week of Oct?

Mantis, i might have to take you up on the offer on "how to drive manual 101" hehe. I will practice on my friend's G20 first

It irritates me that I still can't check my status on bmwusa.com. How a phone system is more intelligent than the web boggles my mind.
