All I can say is I was told my faults were caused by a bad fuel "rail" and a bad HP fuel pump. My xDrive failure was because the transfer case overheated so the car went into limp mode. They did the...

Yup, I did that starting two weeks after I got the production number. Kept saying that a production date hadn't been assigned. That's when my CA told me it was scheduled for 7/28 and I blew my cork. ...

Any Individual components? If not then that was quick, but not unprecedented (in my experience).

I just want to see what happens 7/28. If I get another run-around then I'm outta here.

OK, that's the kind of info that helps (depending on what I want to hear, which is probably that my CA/intern isn't screwing me).

Yea, well my concerns are "manifold" (!). Why 7 weeks to production, will it get delayed beyond that and, tada, how long is it going to take to build? I mean, if once it starts the timeframe is sort...

I don't know about the slot, only thing I know is I got a Production # right away. Again, he said NOTHING about not having a slot.

After I ordered he DID say Individual would take...

MY 2015 M235i

Hmmm, I've been told "week 31" (albeit for a 640 ix GC). Would someone be kind enough to translate that into English? :). TIA.

I was actually reacting to the post by ajdoha234. I can understand the GC's "svelte" roof not being able to house the sliding mechanism. But the 7 should have no issues with a feature the makers of...

Yea, it IS kind of funny.

My wife said she doesn't really open the sunroof anymore (something about "pollen") so it's fine with her.

Sunroof

I searched "sunroof" in this forum, didn't come up with much, but I just read something that seems to indicate that the sunroof in the GC doesn't slide, or at least doesn't open fully.

Really?

I'm pretty sure all 650s come with Nappa leather seats as standard.

Dakota Leather is standard on the 640s, which is what I ordered, but I also have a line in my order that says "Instrument panel...
