Just checked my 125i and 135i vin, and the 10th digit are all 0. Could be an Australian Standard thing.

Put my deposit down, signed the paperwork and was told that this will be the last 1M to be delivered in Aus. Not sure if that's fact or sales pitch, but either way it's a long wait till Aug/Sep delivery.

Thinking of going AW. Though wife hates VO, which might mean only I would drive the beast :thump:

So a much loved AW 2009 130i is now up for sale, as are E92M3 FSB & Control Arm kit that were never fitted.
Who is the dealer if you don't mind me asking

Pre-Delivery as in - prepping the car after the dealer gets it from BMW Aus?

This should only take a day or 2 max. As far as I know from my time with Audi & Porsche, it mostly involves recoding out of transport mode, removing suspension bumper stops, placing all the odds and ends that come packed in boxes into their designated places, a quick once over the car and a questionable detail.

They probably want it on the showroom floor for a few days.

Ian, did you order via Worthington? I could check their showroom for you in a couple of days and again. They are a short drive from my home.

Yes, Gosford. I have said to them that I don't want the car in the showroom. They said they get it on Wednesday, but won't be ready until the following weekend! I will take a ride out their on the weekend perhaps to check.

You should. It's not a 7 day process. Either that or they are being lazy - which is a bit unusual as they usually want to get paid and close the deal ASAP.

Thats BS.. Probably not there yet.

They cant be that busy, that it takes more than 2 days max for PD.

Tell them you want to see the car and that you are on your way up there..

I know it is BS, they want it on their floor for a few days probably. I will go up there on Saturday for a surprise visit. They get it delivered on Wednesday, so I can't see why Saturday isn't achievable.

Is there any chance of confusion caused by different people use and understanding of 'this weekend' and 'next weekend'? If car is receivedby dealer on Wednesday, next weekend and this weekend may both mean 18 February weekend. Just thinking aloud.

They said receive car on 15th, I can pick up on 24th. I have said that's not acceptable, so awaiting a response. Perhaps they'r just trying there luck?

Send a message via MSN to 1q2w3e4r
Tell them you will be up on Saturday to see the car.

It'll either be parked out the back as they say or ready to rock, they can't have it both ways and would only want it on the floor for the weekend/ Monday morning services.
