I had to change the Taupe to Black Boston leather. Taupe is way too light.

Are the dealers assigned production numbers with their allocations, or does it only happen with priority 1 cars?

Some of the dealership types will need to correct me if I've screwed this up but here goes. I believe that the dealer is told they have X production slots allocated to them per month. They either have customers who have requested one of those slots (and the customer has configured a car) or they will configure a car themselves to put on the dealership floor for one of those slots. (There is an employee whose job it is to order cars for the dealership's inventory - they have to be pretty good. There are some funny stories about guys that couldn't judge public taste for love nor money that ordered some pretty peculiar configurations ; -).

But the allocation doesn't generate a number until a production order is placed, either using the customer's configuration or the configuration the dealership has created for one of their floor models.

I just got my number as well. 389xxxx. Alpine White with Coral. I just logged onto the Owners Circle and it says my production number is for a Titanium Silver 128i. should I be concerned? I know that I read the Owners Circle could be off for a while compared to my actual order. Please Adivse.

My car may be delayed another month if I decide to wait for the Savanna Beige Leather.

Welcome GatoGrande, and congrats to you. My e90 is SG/Terra, and I love the combo. Btw, don't google terracotta leather for a representation, since that's not the color you're getting. The color swatch hue on the brochure is correct, shows terra's true color, and LWB8 is the leather code for terra leather.

I went with Alpine White (like chriskurn and izzodesh0), but went with terra too. :smile:

Excellent!

I have also worked with Chris for years! He is the best salesmen I have had.

What other options did you choose?

Yeah... my brother just got his E90 in Monaco Blue/Terra - and that looks great also! Glad to hear you like the Graphite/Terra combo - I would love to see it in a real picture - the ones on the BMWUSA site just don't seem realistic enough...

Don't worry, you can't go wrong with Graphite. I almost went with Blue/Black, but I have had two blue Bimmers and always wanted a white car
