Wow, hope that is not the case for my M5, that would suck, I was hoping to get it this week or, at worst, next week.

Did the dealer have good info about the hold at at the port? ie, if I call my sales guy is it easy for him to know that or did your dealer need to call the port to get more info?

Your M5 likely not affected. Your CA can check their DCS system and in your production number has a bunch of status info. It will indicate here if there's any holds.

There is a stop sale on 70 cars manufactured around July 2nd related to the camshaft sensor issue. It includes a few of the models and I know some were 550's and M5's but I don't have the breakdown. If yours was manufactured near this date I would check with your CA. The sensor will either be repaired or replaced.

Ok, then I'm probably ok, I'd guess. Mine was finished on July 23rd, IIRC.

Nice! Mine is in the Paint Booth and estimated to be completed tomorrow.

Soon we'll be tracking it across the pond!

Hi all. I'm waiting (impatiently) for my 550 to arrive, and I've spent a lot of time trying to get pics or video of the 2020 to see the new cluster and hear the exhaust. Mine is a week 36 build as well, but tracking in Canada is evidently not what it is in the ROW, so I have no idea where it is at this point.

I had the opportunity to hear a 2020 today as my local dealer received their first one. I recorded the exhaust note as it is more aggressive than the 2019. First revs are in Comfort, then I switched to Sport Plus, then back to Comfort:



Also, the gauge cluster looks pretty good to me. I'll likely use the HUD most of the time, but it seems like a decent layout, especially in Sport Plus.

Congrats! Have you looked into winter tires for it? I'm looking myself and was wondering what others have done. I suppose 19" are recommended?

Thanks. I was looking at Michelin X-ICE, but am considering Alpin's too, probably on 19" rims with a squared setup. I had Dunlop winters on my F10 550 in a squared setup and it was great in the snow, but I don't want runflat tires on this car.

Congrats! Looking good Seems like no more CD player in 2020 models... not that I used mine on my '19. Thought it was a Euro thing, but now I see it on your US spec model.
