Nice...how did you find out your pickup date already? The BMW site and hotline didn't tell me squat.

It's going to take much longer than 10 weeks to get you your ordered car. The dealership BS'ed you in that sense.

Every dealership in SoCal cannot get an ordered car into production until the beginning of May.

Whoah that's pretty bad. I ordered mine on Feb 24 and I'll pick it up around the 23 April. What makes SoCal different ?

I ordered on the 27th of February, and it went into production on the 5th. If it wasn't for the delay at the port I would have the car by mid-april.

WTF!?! Beginning of May...really? Any source on this?

I assumed some BS, but that puts me towards the end of June now.

Well, If you already got a production allocation, I don't see why you would have to wait until May. Double check with your dealer and ask for a production week, this should allow you to find out exactly when your car is going to be produced.

Wooohooo!! As of today.....just moved from "On Order" to "Scheduled for Production" on the BMW site.

Not sure how different that is...but some change is better than none. I'll take it.

Does this count for a production allocation? Going to the dealership today to get more info.

Mine had no delay, finished production on the 6th of march and arrived at the dealer near Chicago on the 30th. Also was surprised that it boarded a truck the same day it arrived at the VPC in South Car.

Grats, Timbo!

No, Just regular dealer delivery. My current car is being trade assisted by BMW. I heard Performance Delivery is great.

My M3 just completed production today!!! OH YEA!!! Actually faster then I expected. I guess this is the hard part of the wait....car sits at the port waiting to get on a boat. I've read of cars waiting at the port for a month.

Keepin my fingers crossed that it doesn't take too long.

Nice!! I made my order just a few days ago so I still have a long wait time. My dealer has to trade one of the allocations for a M3 allocation before they can even place the order. Long wait but it gives me time to get some parts in.
