Thanks Jon, all I've been getting from the dealer is the Design/MSRP page. I guess I need to be more specific when asking.

Most salespeople have a one-track mind.... (gross profit)...

Yes, this is a 2013 order. The actual production process commences Monday morning.

Great news. How about the ActiveHybrid 3? Is that starting production on Monday, as well? Have any allocation slots for immediate production?

Is that for a 2013 model? If so, production has already started? It's not even July yet!

If you call the BMW assist number, key in your VIN or order number, it will tell you the estimated completion date at the factory, assuming the car has entered production status.

Cool. What's the BMW Assist number so I can get at that info?

BJ-

You salesman should be more than happy to give you the info and keep you updated. You can also use your production number to register on www.BMWUSA.com
and track order progress online through the 'My BMW' portal.

Thank you gentlemen, got the answers I needed from the phone number, very surprising that my CA didn't provide me with that little nugget upon purchase.

I'm complete on July 7th, so perhaps we'll be on the same boat. Would that make us brothers?

Just called to check on production. Completion has been pushed back a day from when I called last week. Now looking at July 10th. I guess they are getting overwhelmed with orders!

Mine was pushed back from July 6th completion to July 7th. Is in the paint shop now. More than likely it is not being overwhelmed with production orders but either the regular post-factory-startup glitches or just continued problems with F30 assembly that are slowing things up and preventing them from running at capacity.

Jon, if I were to ask my CA to print that form for me from DealerSpeed.net what is the actual name of the document to ask for? My vehicle was 'born' the same day as yours.

Thanks.
