Good Allocation News!

I got a call from my CA today saying they got their first Allocation, originally scheduled for October. This car will be build end of June.

I know several others have been told October and later for build dates but it looks like those early advertised dates were just estimates.

By the way I am in Utah with only 1 dealer for the whole state so it's looking like the Allocations are now moving from the large dealers only to the smaller inland dealers as well.


Lastly the Allocation is mine!! I am headed to the dealer to select options and color. Now is it going to be AW or VO???? I am still struggling with this.

Seems like they know they are getting one allocation, but it does mean that they are getting any more?

From what I've seen on the boards, it look like a lot people's orders are moving up on the build dates. Does it mean dealers are getting more allocations?

I thought the CA knew what they are getting?

I would not be surprised to see your Allocation date move up. It is looking like the early predicted dates the the BMW NA sales reps provided to each dealer with build months were best early guesses.

I just got back from the dealer. Placed my order for a VO fully loaded. My CA is checking ED dates for Aug or September around Oktoberfest. On the one hand I want the car ASAP however Oktoberfest would be great too.

Congrats on your allocation! I think ED are running about 90 days from day of request with an allocation#. I'm doing ED too, it's going to be a long wait for the car back here in US.

For what it's worth I struggled for weeks on colour; at various points leaning towards each one. Them I went down two days ago to see the first one my dealer had; it was AW - sold! I haven't seen the others but I can tell you that In person AW looks incredible. With VO I think it will probably look great, but, ultimately didn't want that attention seeking look every single day; and some of the reports of the colour in cloudy weather put me off. Congrats on the allocation! Colour is icing on the cake

Great news!

Looks like I am doing an early August ED! Can't wait for these cars. The only down side to the ED is I won't see my car back until October, but I was originally planning on an Oct. Build anyway.

You guys are lucky! My dealer thought I would get a June build date when I talked to him back in March, but he just updated me yesterday that my build date is October.

My dealer called Monday with my production order number. Build date is week of July 4th. I struggled with the VO and AW question too. I was VO all the way until the final decision had to be made. AW was ordered. I like the VO looks great, but the AW shouldn't attract as much attention. My driving attracts enough attention as it is.

I'm not in a small town, but my dealer sells very few 1er's and far fewer M3s. Often, they don't have a 1 on the lot.

Is your allocation with Roadshow BMW by chance? I have a deposit down at BMW of Chattanooga(#1 on list). Do you know how many allocations your dealer has said they will receive?
