Time Line for newly ordered 128i

Greetings all,

FYSA, I ordered a new '13 128i (my DD to replace my Scion tC) last week, and the salesman informed me my car should arrive from Leipzig, Germany within six weeks.

I'm assuming the current Holiday Savings event is BMW's way of ratching up the factory to produce as many cars as possile before the long Christmas break when German factories remain idle for several weeks, not to mention cargo ships remaining in port during some winter months?

I searched the forum and I read several posts that mentioned new orders take anywhere from 8-10 weeks for delivery...

Now & before December 15 would be a good time to order your new Bimmer...

Cheers/B

AW w/beige interior. I was extremely judicious with my options. All I ordered was Sport Seats, lol. I wanted the car to be a simple DD, that will be comfortable, reliable, simple and low key.

Update: The salesman mentioned he was able to change the order of one of his inventory cars into the build process for my ordered car. He said my car is ready for production. I should have it sooner than 6 weeks.

I'll enjoy viewing your website...

Cheers/B

My timeline is in my signature below. Good choices IMHO. I also recommend Performance Center Delivery - doesn't cost you anything and should still be available (it doesn't cost the dealer anything but is a little more work for your sales associate).

Once upon a time I had dreams of a 6-8 week delivery! I know better now, but I hope yours is speedier than mine, which will end up being about 10 weeks. Not really a big deal, of course, especially considering what I think was a Sandy delay (sat at port in Germany for a while as crap got sorted out).
