2020 M550i Week 36 Build

Anyone else a Week 36 build date which I believe is 9/1?
Any chance of that date moving in?

Factory usually closed for most of August, so doubt any movement closer.

I have production week 38 for another M550ix. Like you, I'd love to have them move it up, but my order is individual paint and I know that they have specific production weeks scheduled for special orders.

Not sure how BMW does it, but for most manufacturers build dates don't change much after they're issued unless there's a problem.

BMW has been known to move forward build dates on Priority 1 orders.

Closed most of August... and then September 21 - October 6th is Oktoberfest. Sounds like productivity drops drastically this time of year...

I am waiting on delivery of a 2020 m550 but it is delayed at the Baltimore port due to a stop sale on this model as well as other models. Mine has a camshaft sensor issue. No ETA given.

I'm W37. No movement for a while. (I have P1 options if it matters) Hoping I find a case of Spaten Oktoberfest in the trunk. :-)

I am stuck waiting for any movement on my 2020 530e. It has been "Scheduled for Production" since 8/5/2019 and my CA is on vacation until 8/24. The wait is definitely long.

I have PD#38. It's been in "order accepted" since mid June until this morning when it switched to "production scheduled." Still listed as week 38. Individual paint special order so I knew the process would take longer, but at least it moved forward a notch!

Week 38 start is September 15th. So if all stays on schedule you should change to production started about 1 week prior to actual build start. Maybe more than 1 week since you have individual paint.

Here's hoping you're right Claykin. I can't wait to get my hands on that rosso corsa!

So, car has been at Baltimore port for 2 weeks waiting for government to approve part to fix camshaft sensor. Dealer telling me they are hopeful to have it in early September. Very frustrating process.
