That is exactly what I am going to do. The good thing is my dealer sent me the same doc as provided above when I ordered my car. My CA is off today, but did shoot me an email stating he will look into it first thing tomorrow morning. I will keep you guys posted. Thanks for all the great advice.

Good luck - I sure hope this dealership has common sense!

Very unusual. I guess it happens ONCE in a while, but this is the first I've heard of it...sorry to hear you're going through some hassles.

So something seems off with my car:

- It is supposed to have bluetooth, but the menu doesn't display it as a configurable feature
- I ordered PDC (it is on the sticker too) My rear bumper has the PDC sensors, but my dash is missing the PDC button. Did I mention it doesn't work either?
- 2012s should come with the usb/ipod adapter, though unfortunately they forgot to install this in my car as well.

Tomorrow I will call my CA, but I am wondering if anybody on this forum has had experience with missing factory standard features. Maybe they built my 2012 car as a 2011?

Cheers

Wow that is incredible. I am sure they can add blue tooth and USB/IPOD for you at their expense so you should be covered and not too huge a deal but still a big pain that you even have to waste time thinking about this. Well good news is you will enjoy the engine sounds for the next few months and not even think about playing your ipod so you should be ok

Nope, haven't gotten mine. When you said you had yours already I was wondering whether I could have had mine sooner. I haven't heard from my CA that it is ready though even though the BMW site shows it at the dealer.

It says "Mazda" on the engine cover. That means its a V8, right? ;-)

Anyway, contacted my CA today. He was first claiming the order guide was wrong and you will only get bluetooth and ipod/usb if you get nav. I told him that was BS I was going to get a second opinion at BMW USA. Now he just sent an email to the local bmw rep to find out who is right. So we'll see.

Bummer. It's certainly not your fault. It's either the dealer or BMW.

Did the dealer give you a printout of your Production Order via Dealer Speed for you to review/sign?

It would have the option codes and then you could pinpoint whether it was a dealer order omission or a factory production omission.

Good Luck!!

So your window sticker and bmwusa.com are wrong as well?

Your CA is a monkey.

Quick update: Dealership has confirmed (for now) that the mentioned features are indeed standard. They are still waiting on a response from BMW NA...

Same here...good luck and I hope things get resolved quickly and correctly!

So did your CA at least apologize for his earlier comments about the ordering guide being wrong?

Owned by Technic!

I can't believe some of the "convenient" excuses from CAs that I hear about ...

I'm really sorry OP, it must be very disappointing. I hope they make up for it to your satisfaction.

Ok, just got a call from my CA. Apparently, there has been a whole batch of 2012 M3 coupes and convertibles that have been manufactured without bmw assist/bluetooth/ipod integration. They gave me the choice of either returning the car or take a $1050 check. Obviously I took the check as I don't want to wait another 3 months. It sucks, but I can live without these gadgets.

Why don't you have them install these options at free of charge.

Wow what a colossal blunder. I find it disconcerting that your CA assumed that you were wrong or mistaken off the bat. Glad that you found resolution that you can live with.

I would have given the car back. Just my opinion.

Man...I'm so conflicted on this. These cars were totally NOT set up right...it's a shame. At the same time, what is the world coming to if a car without bluetooth and iPod connectivity are unacceptable. On the other hand, the car is expensive and you waited a while. It sucks all around, who cares about the measly check.

I wouldn't even deal with the guy who told you were wrong over at BMW Mtn View. I just wouldn't trust his word anymore. Maybe you can send an email to BMW USA to figure out what really happened, you know?

In either case, enjoy the car man. I love every minute, and honestly I barely listen to music...the engine is music (perfect shifts are music) AND I when I'm having a fun time driving, taking a call on craptooth totally disrupts the whole experience. You can put that check to good use on some accessories.
