Yes we loved the med blue when we saw it at the dealer. Wife originally swore no to the Ivory Nappa because of the diamond quilting based on pics. Then she saw it at the dealer in another car and felt it. Then the CA told her we could get the ventilated option and that sealed the deal on the Nappa. We are beyond excited and now I am constantly checking status and reading others tales of delays at the port... I'll probably drive myself crazy before it gets here, lol!

Glad to have y’all on this ride with me!

I can relate with you Chevy Guy. Was there for many years. Owned 11 BMW bikes and my first BMW car was a 2012 X1 for two yrs, then an M4 for three years and now my M550i for the past 8 mos. Love the car and you will too. I'll never leave the BMW stable.

So yesterday dealer calls and says my car should be starting production in next few days. I'm thinking cool; that's what I expected with a PW of 16.

Quick check before bed: Scheduled.

Woke up this morning, groggily grab the phone and login...

Productions Begins, and a VIN!!!

Day six still at "Production Begins" status... And I see bastula waited 11 days!

I know the wait will be worth it but this is driving me crazy.

After 7 days of status "Production Begins" the status just changed to "Exterior Body Assembly Begins". This wait is killing me.....

Mine took 11 days from "production begins" to "awaiting carrier assignment". Once production begins, the build is pretty quick. It's the transport that may take a while.

I'm finally on the boat!

Woohoo! It is making progress. Usually "scheduled for production" takes about a week.
