Order process

Hi guys,

I am just wondering approximately how long it takes till you place the order and when you car actually starts getting built and when you can expect to have your VIN?

I placed my order a couple months ago, but asked to wait till an 09 build. So now that it is 09, just wondering when I should start bugging my SA to get the VIN.


Thanks all!

Long time lurker ... first time poster!
I ordered a few months ago too (September) for an 09 build. After being told in December that I was locked in for a January build, I was told last week by my sales guy (after I asked him for a status update) that BMW Australia had some of their January production allocation pulled :-( ... so I am now looking at a Feb build.
So I would ask him if you have been allocated a production slot yet

09 builds started September 08, so they have been out for a while now. Mine was early October build, delivered December and I have a 09 model with 09 iDrive.

sorry - I was referring to a 2009 built vehicle (build plate) rather than an 09 model

Should be available as soon as the build week is known, as the car has effectively been allocated to you.

The build week should be known at least a month in advance from the actual build, as your chassis enters the production queue in the Liepzig plant.

Yeah I was referring to an 09 Build too, not model. I guess I may be in the same boat as you CT135!

I will send through an email to my SA to suss it out.

Thanks for the info MattyV!
