UK/Europe M3 owners your help requiered......

Hi,
Last week i ordered my dream car , a E90 M3 in Jerez. Before i ordered i was told to expect delivery in July at the earliest and August at the latest. I have just received a phone call telling me that July is impossible and that i will be 'lucky' to get an August delivery - more likely to be September or possibly October! I am so disappointed, it has really taken away from the excitement of finally ordering my M.

I clearly asked about delivery times best and worst case scenario before i placed the order and now only a few days later the dates have moved in relation to what they have told me - i need the car at the latest in early August.

For those of you that ordered your cars new is this timescale similar to what you had to wait or are my predicted delivery dates much longer?

Many Thanks!

I think 3 months is the minimum and 4 to 5 months is still not too bad. Maybe you chose the wrong colour...

Maybe! I have been told that there are no E90 M3's on the production line at all at the moment that are not customers cars - if i had ordered an E92 i think there would have been a chance of them changing one to my spec that was already sheduled for production.

How have you found the palladium silver leather in your car? (i have ordered this) Are you happy with it, any regrets?
Can you post up a couple of photos as there are not too many on the forum.

This is correct !
The production line of the E92 is much faster as the demand on this series is higher & the cash flow larger for BMW. I had mine within less than 3 months after ordering date.
Ask if you can change itīs only 2 doors less

Ha ha! I do occasionally need that third seat though, so it has to be the E90 for me.
