Local Dealer Says 2020 M550i Still 4 Months Out

A local SoCal dealer I was talking to said the 2020s wonít start rolling in for another 4 months. Does that sound right even with production starting in July?

Pretty sure that the dealer is wrong. I have a confirmed European Delivery for an 2020 M550i on September 10 and I could have chosen a date in late August if I didn't have any individual options.

European Deliveries are made available once the initial production of dealer vehicles is well under way. I would expect them to start rolling in to dealerships around late August.

I read a notice that my dealer received 3 weeks ago from corp. It said 2020 model year production would begin in July for the M550, but for all other 5 series models production would not begin until Sept.

Thatís good intel. I wonder if the M550 will then be arriving in dealerships in August.

The SoCal dealers Iíve talked to have made no mention of ordering a 2020 with European delivery. Crazy. Do you know if one could still order a 2020 now without European delivery?

Mind sharing which dealer youíre working with?

I would guess so, or early Sept. Unless of course the car is ordered with individual paint, etc., then my guess is mid Oct. My 2020 M550 in Ferrari red, (rosso corsa) is scheduled for production the week of Sept. 9th. Doing cognac interior with the red. Figure I should have it in my hands around mid Oct at the latest. Port in Baltimore and trucked to Lansing, Mi.

Little late here - but I ordered a 2020 in the second week of July and take delivery in the first week of September...

Yeah that dealer was definitely far off. The lots around me are flooded with 2020 M550i cars; 43 cars to be exact. They are consistently the only 2020 5 series on lots right now.

My 530e is in production now so I'll have that in about a month (or so), but any 5 series can be ordered to my understanding since they started building them in July.
