How long between order submitted and production started? Mine is sitting in order submitted and I'm anxious for production to start.
I sat with my sales manager on the evening of November 13th (it was the 14th in Munich) as he and I processed the order. He pulled up his allotment screen and there she was, waiting to be customized. Even he said that it was somewhat of a stroke of luck to have a unit sitting at the doorstep of production. Particularly, given that as we are in Utah, most of their allotment is for X-Drive units. We ordered it and it rolled into production a few hours later. The other stroke of luck was the timing of the ship. Often, a vehicle will not make the first ship - mine did. It's scheduled to arrive in Port Hueneme (Oxnard), CA on December, 26th. That is less than 6 weeks from the time I placed the order!! When I ordered, I was told 3 months. I must say, I am both impressed and rather stoked!!
Nov. 13th was my b-day (arg: 40). So let's pretend you bought yourself a new F10 to celebrate it? Hehe.
I am in Utah too, but ordered my car through a dealership in Nebraska. The car will likely be dropped off on the East coast.
I finalized last week (Thursday). They modified an existing production slot for which they had already submitted an order. So I'm hoping this expedites. Tomorrow, I will ask when the slot was slated to begin production.
I will say, I've already pulled out 23% of my hair waiting for this thing and it's only been 4 days now! I didn't read the fine print that says ordering will cause pre-mature hair loss.
As someone who has just picked up his 550 M-Sport Mani, I can assure you that it is unbelievable.
Enjoy, and post pics when it gets here.
Truly pumped. See you live in ATL. Originally from Marietta.
