European delivery dates

Hi all,

I have been planning to order a new F30 as soon as I got to test drive one, which I did this weekend. I also just found out that I have to be in Munich for work the last week of April. So, I figure I could try to put in an order for a European delivery for pickup at the end of April and save myself some bucks. Ideally, I would like to time my pickup in Munich to coincide with my trip.

How far out does one usually need to book a slot for European Delivery? Have any of you placed an order in the past few days? What pickup dates have you gotten?

Thanks,
Andy

So for you guys that have done ED, expanding on the question, if you order 3 months out, can you target a particular week? For example, if I order an xi in July, can I get a date within a 3 week block in October? Thanks.

I am in process, I was asked to give 3 dates of choice, I yet have to hear back. So just start the process, request your target date.

Only thing with end of April is that if you can wait 3 more months, you might be able to get a 2013 in July - you should explore that just to be sure.

Ok. As a follow-up question, you give 3 dates upon ordering, how and when is the date certain given to you? I've got to put in for a 3-week vacation block prior to ordering the car, and it can't be changed. So, if I do order in July, I'd like to be reasonably sure that I'll get a date within my vacation block. Thanks.

You should start working with some one soon, I am working Adrian from BMW of South Atlanta. Get him to start the process pick three dates within vacation block and your first choice should be accepted if that far out. I think you know within 2 - 5 days of initial booking. Send me a direct message if you are interested I will give you his contact and my name you can reference.
