Question European delivery date change

I plan to take the European delivery in October. My current concern is that it is likely that there could be a delay of my travel due to some family reason. If that happens, let's say I can not make the date that I specified when I placed the ED order. What will happen? How likely I can ask BMW to reschedule the pick up?

Thanks!

No problem, this happens frequently.

Jon, thanks! You are everywhere.

In my case, I won't be able to know the delay until a week before the scheduled date. Who should I contact to postpone the delivery for one week let's say? Will all the slots in that week be occupied? I understand that no one could say for sure, but based on your experience, how likely I can successfully postpone the pick up for one week given the short notice?

Thanks a lot!

One side benefit is that if you postpone your pick up so that the manufacture date is in November you'll get the new version of idrive.

Short notice is a challenge for sure. The more time you give your CA , the higher the likelihood they'll be able to successfully move it back.

Will the new iDrive start in November? I read that it starts in the July production from the link below. Can you clarify?

Just realized you are talking about 3 series, right? I am ordering a 5 series, so it should be fine, right?

What about the 6 series Gran Coupe? Our delivery may be pushed back to October.

Ugggh! How does this affect the 2013 Z4? I was going to go to the dealer tomorrow to order.
