I started this thread because the Dealerspeed sheet I got with my order at the end of August had the 6VC and 8TL options. Yesterday, the bmwusa website showed my status as "schedule for production" and the color choices are now correct.
I got updated Dealerspeed sheets today and the 8TL option is no longer shown. The 6VC is still there. I'm now at status 150 as well.
In summary, the 8TL was there but now its gone.
Confusing, but, not really surprising.
