Just rubbing it in my face aren’t you!?!?!? ;)

Both our cars are on the production line. The delivery dates might be down to logistics and delivery schedules with yours arriving a few days before mine.

So an additional week of sleepless nights for me.

You excited yet?

sars, ori,

Could be as simple as the colour production schedule, SFR is in the paint shop run before MB??

So if they do Misano Blue before SFR they could just squeeze mine into the schedule couldn’t they? :rofl:

I would think its more likely a component issue at an assembly point, wrong part selection or a faulty/damaged component, which has pulled it out of production. Parts have to be allocated before the car enters assembly, paint is planned in.

Well the car hasn’t been pulled out of production. It’s moving along. Just one of those things.
Roll on November.

ori, Just chased mine up again with BMW Online Chat, no further updates from last Friday which was final inspection. Next notification is to distribution apparently.

We are in exactly the same boat. Mine has been in assembly complete since Friday. So we are waiting for shipping to happen.
Yours is supposed to arrive in 10 days?

sars,

So the one thing that is confirmed is my car is built with no missing spec that wasn’t expected like wireless charging.
That’s a good sign.
What is more concerning is it’s been at the same point for a week now. Assembly complete and hasn’t changed.

As if by magic, today my car has been handed over to distribution. I can see a light at the end of this tunnel!

So what does that mean? Is it in the UK or just left the factory?

Edit, no further update for mine, that’s a week in final inspection, I’m betting you’ll get yours before mine at this point

Nope. It’s still at the factory, but it’s now been released to distribution so should be making its way over to transit soon.
It’s scheduled to arrive week commencing 8th nov.
Yours still scheduled for 1st? Always ask for what build code it’s at as it gives a little more information. Mine is code 160 right now.

I still think we will both get ours within a day or 2 of each other.

Anxious and horrid more like it. I know it’s true first world problems, but the delays are horrible.

Code 182 today which is released to carrier. So certainly moving up. Just waiting for it to actually leave the factory and arrive in U.K. port.
