In my experience, BMW dealers tend to offer customers the option in ordering a car built to his/her specs. Maybe it's just the nature of the brand for dealerships to openly adopt this tradition. Many CAs I worked with at multiple BMW dealerships casually tell me they can take an existing dealer inventory to modify it, put my name on it and it's an ordered car for me. MB and Lexus on the other hand don't do this. They make it a hassle to order a car. I was quoted by MB and Lexus 4-5 months for special ordering. One MB CA told me she doesn't have access to some of the special order options on an E550 because only the inventory manager can do that.
