Just read this! This is unbelievable Ianf! Go give them absolute hell, the bastards have no right to that with your car. I would call BMW Aus as well, I found getting them involved made a huge difference.

The dealer is not really at fault, more BMW AU. Their logistics are f*cked. They made some calls and car is assured to be at dealer on Monday, so hopefully Wed for me.

So the car never got to the dealer? Then it's obviously not their fault.

I thought it was sitting there for over a week and they were delaying delivery.

When you're dropping $100k with them I don't think it is unreasonable to expect the dealer to be on top of the status of your car and delivery at all times. It's their job to be in touch with customs agents and delivery companies and to give you meaningful updates when you ask.

Good luck Ian, we're all hoping you get it soon.

Agree.. Regardless of what has happened with logistics, the DEALER is still at fault for not keeping you in the loop, and just passing the odd bit of BS to you IMO..

Well the finance bloke ask if I'd sign today so he could put it in Feb month. I laughed, get the car there and then I'll sign!
Worthington is a good dealer, no BS country boys. Downside is that perhaps they aren't seen seriously by BMW AU. Although they sell more M car ratio than any other dealer in NSW. I am sure it will arrive on Monday, just annoying.

Watched 135i drive off into sunset yesterday with happy new owner.

Anyone looking for a 1M?.... They have 1 allocation left.

I wonder if the new 3 was to blame. They hold the cars till two days ago before sending them to the dealers.

Also, nothing has changed re 1M - no one knows what they are getting still. However, I think they might have been unofficial promises.
