Yes and no. You have to contract (sign the papers) within the lock in period. You can take delivery after the lock in is over. Keep in mind though, there is probably a limit on how much time after you sign the paperwork you can pick up the car. BMW is not going to build a car and let is sit for 4 months until you pick it. They base your production on when you plan to pick up the car. You actually pick a date and they confirm it. Production will be based on the delivery date. Also keep in mind that you have to make payments after you sign which is why my CA has me signing 10 days before pick up.

Here is an example
Lock in 9/2/2012 - you must sign within 90 days or 12/1/2012 (since you are from California)
Sign 12/1/2012 and schedule delivery for 1/1/2013 Drive it for 2 weeks and drop off on 1/15/2013
First payment is due 1/1/2013 (ED BMW makes first payment) for you.
It takes 6-10 weeks for the car to make it back to your dealer. (lets go with worse case scenario of 10 weeks since you are in California. So car in California dealership on 4/1/2013
This means you make the 2/1 and 3/1 payments while you are waiting on the car. Just something to keep in mind. Hope it helps.
