Your dealer has to input all of the new information to override what was already there for that particular allocation. Once your new detail is in the system it will update on the BMW website.
But big picture, know this: the BMW tracking website is awful. It's always behind, it lacks good detail. What you need is the BMW telephone number which you can call 24 hours a day and learn the true status of your build.
Call: (800) 831-1117 Say "Vehicle Production Status" when prompted.
Yes, this is why I never used this site in the first place when I had my e90.
