Delivery Week of 10/20 support group thread

My CA just confirmed that the x35 engines are held up due to EPA certification and would not be delivered until the week of 10/20. Now that I've been driven completely bonkers waiting for this car, I figure I need some form of group therapy.

Waiting for: 135i Coupe, Jet Black, Sport, Premium, Nav, iPod & USB, Comfort Access

I think it's true, and we know more than most CA's out there. Here is the answer I got from a CA that posts on this site.

I'm off today, but I will answer this one since it's affecting alot of people. There are some EPA certification issues (they need to be certified), it seems related only to the TT engines. I have 3 sold 335's and 2 135's all waiting at the VPC. They told us yesterday it could be until the 21st before those cars are done. Your cars could be quicker or longer. There are easily a few hundred or more cars down there right now. It sux, but nothing that your dealer can do about it.

I'll get the other questions tomorrow (unless someone else answers) Have a great day:smile:

In an additional post, he says the issue should be resolved around October24th !!!!!!!!!
