Indeed. This assumes that I didn't get bumped for the comm box issue. LOL. Still a great birthday present even if close to the 9th! LOL.

Dealer told me I have a week 35 build also with no confirmed production start or finish date. He told me I have combox also. This is my worst car experience to date. BMW really needs to get there shit together.

Week 35 is done. If your CA is right, your car is built. My car is supposed to a week 36 build, completed tomorrow. Good to hear your CA say you got the combox in week 35 but I'll believe it when I see my car and confirm the combox...

How can you confirm the com box on the car?

Good question!! A number of folks here and on the F10 board claim to have their CA confirming the combox on cars. Not sure how they are doing this as my CA can't find a way to do it. Either my CA doesn't know how to get confirmation or these other CA's are simply telling their customers what they want to hear without any real proof. I have no way of knowing which one is correct...

So here's another question: once the car arrives at the dealership, how can we confirm the combox is installed? I don't believe it will show up on the window sticker? Is it simply a matter of whether or not the car has the old "Y" connector? Or do we just attach our iPhone and see if the album art shows up on the nav screen??

Besides the album art, does it have anything to do with the new Mobile Office applications which read out text and email?

I know week 35 is over and dealer or BMWNA still don't have a start or finish date. I think my CA must be wrong no vin # start or finish date WTF. WEEK 37 about to start.

Yes, I have had a VIN for several weeks now. But the latest update from BMWNA was dated July 30 and that was the Sept 6th completion. Others have mentioned being delayed because of the combox issue, perhaps our cars are delayed as well...

Got an email from my CA this morning, my car has moved to status 153 "Assembly Started"! BMWNA and the original print out from my dealer had indicated week 36 build with a Sept 6th completion. Sounds like that has been pushed back some from that Sept 6th date and my CA is speculating that it was slightly delayed waiting for the combox. While he means well, I don't think he really has any way to confirm that...

Ugh, mine was pushed to week 38

CA said all M3s were delayed a bit, not sure if that's true or not. Maybe because of the combox? (wtf is this combox thing people keep talking about about anyway?)

Combox is a new piece of hardware that provides additional functions for the iPod and Blackberry devices. It was introduced with Sept production so will be getting with your week 38 production.

Let me know how that goes. I couldn't figure out how to track the ships when I initially looked into it a couple of weeks ago.
