I visited my CA today and we were discussing reason why my car might be delayed making a boat. It finished production on 09/08 and still has yet to ship from the port.

One of his thoughts was that BMW may be purposely holding M-sport cars for whatever reason. Though I think we both know this doesn't make sense, I was curious to know if anyone with the M-Sport package has confirmation there car has been assigned a ship.

Just curious. The wait it killing me:bawling:

I am waiting to see one before I order and am also in NY. Would love to see yours if at all possible when you get it. Where in NY are you? What did you order?

How does one check status witha production number? Went on website but can't seem to find a place to input number.

You have to go to your account (assuming you have one) and click add/remove vehicles. Just enter the vehicle info with production # or vin. Your done.

So Grizzles, any chance I can take a look at your car sometime soon before I order mine? Doesn't seem like ANY dealers are getting any in for me to check out w M Sport. I really would love to see one in person. I have an office in NNJ. Would be so much appreciated.

I saw a 550i with MSport at JMK last weekend so they are definitely being delivered. The car I saw was a Carbon Black with Cinnamon Brown interior. It looked better than I expected and that will prob be the color combo I go with. I expect to order later this month..

I'm picking mine up via European Delivery on 10/29 and will post some pics. It won't arrive back in the states until sometime in December.

My biggest concern has been that the Cin Brown interior wouldn't be brown enough. Many of the photos have a pinkish cast to them.

Having seen it in person it is definitely brown. The configurator does no do it justice as to me that shows the color lighter than it really is.

Gort a call from my dealer on Friday, My 535 M Sport arrives early on 10/25 and they should have the car by 10/29. I'm psyched! Jet Black/Cinnamon

My car arrived in Brunswick in the wee early hours Saturday morning. I am hoping it makes it to the dealer ASAP!!! Being I am in Atlanta, it doesn't have far to go, but until it clears customs an the VPC an ends up on a truck - who knows... Almost there... so close.

My Msport 550ix has been sitting on the dock in Bremerhaven since last Tuesday! There was a ship leaving today, but apparently it didn't make it. I don't quite understand....

Has that been confirmed by your dealer? Mine made the 10/13 ship but it wasnt until the 16th that my dealer was able to send me the Bill of Lading #. It is possible that you made the vessel today but you wouldnt know for 2-3 days. PM me with your vin if you want and i can check my ship. Unless your 100% that its not on it.

I'm sure it's not on 10/13 ship (checked VIN). Hope it's on today's (though tracking by VIN on Willenius site shows nothing). Thanks for encouragement.

WW has the best information as far as ship schedules and VIN checks. Mine missed the WW ship but I called the dealer and he verified my M Sport made it on a K Line ship which has fewer stops than the WW ship. Mine left a day later than the WW ship but it is scheduled to arrive a full week before the WW ship.:thumbup:

I wish my salesman would be more responsive. It always seems like he is doing me a favor....my fault, should not be so loyal....Anyhow, it's radio silence after a few calls and emails.

Don't fret yet. My car sat at the port for 15 days before getting a ship. The logistics may not make any sense to you (or me), but in the end, I got a K-Line ship which as Moose states, was actually better, as K-Line seems to have several fewer stops. My ship actually beat several of the W&W Ships that left up to a week before.
