Holiday Pricing vs Delivery Date

Hello all, I have a pretty straight forward question.

I was planning to order my 2013 M3 coupe this month, and am suddenly being told by my CA that there is no guarantee that I will still get the current interest rate on the car if I take delivery in March.

She says this is because I am ordering an individual color, which adds 6-8 weeks to production time. According to her, I can only get the interest rate for 60 days after I place my order.

Can anyone verify this as true? Thanks in advance.

Thats screwed up. They should be able to lock you in. I think she knows that this isnt true but is just saying that to make a $

You can only lock in a rate for up to 60 days. There might be some areas in the US such as east coast that yoiu can lock it in for 90 days, but don't quote me on that. 60 days for sure though.

To make sure I text Ryan: this is what he said "60 days eas coast. 90 west coast, If he locks in through east coast dealer. Locking in at our store is 90 days"

Hope that helps

That is very helpful, thank you GOLFR.

It does make me consider changing to a west coast dealer, but then again it seems there is no guarantee that I will receive the car within that 90 day period.

That is correct. When you order indiv there is no set in stone date you will get it. Its out of the dealers hands and completely in bmw indiv hands.

A dealership in the east coast told me delivery had to take place before the 60th day after the day the deal expires (which is January 2nd). So Jan 2 + 60 days is around March 3rd.

It kinda makes sense since it takes 6-8 weeks anyways for the entire order-production-delivery process. Some people in this forum have waited more than that (not individual).

In any case, it would be great to have a confirmation from a second source if the clock starts at order-day or at end-of-incentive-day (Jan 2nd).
TIA

That long a wait would be brutal regardless of the deal, it's only been 8 days for me with a "production complete", and it seems like forever already.

GL with the buy, hope it works out for you bro!

Here is some more from Ryan "The 60/90 days is from the end of the rate period. Example: October rate program expired on 10/31. However if you locked in October, your locked period would be 60/90 days from 10/31 even if the rate was locked in on 10/1"

This should clear up any confusion on start date of time period

Jimmy, thank you for confirming (and your pm's earlier this week).

From what I understood from my CA you just need sign the papers for the car within those 60 days. You can complete the paperwork once the VIN is available. So if you sign in Feb and take delivery in March you will be fine.
