How long is the current wait time for a 335 if I were to put in an order next week?

If I were sharing a 3 with my wife, it would have to have sport seats, sport suspension, and NO I-DRIVE.

Luckily, it will be all mine, when I order a wagon next spring, and I won't have to worry about sharing!

It will depend on your dealer and their current allocation of build slots. If they have a slot available, they can give you a production number at the time of order and let you know roughly which week the car will be built. From the time production starts, you're probably looking at 6 to 8 weeks depending on shipping schedules and volume at the port/VPC.

If your dealer has any brains and knows what they're doing they will modify a current stock order that has not yet gone into production and give you a copy of the new order showing your specs and the order number before you leave the dealership. If the dealer won't do that find another dealer.

Very true. Yet, if you live in a small market your choices are limited as is the local dealer's allocation.

The bottom line is that when you go in to place your order, don't leave without a production number in hand. If the dealer can't provide that, you have to make a choice: walk, or be willing to wait for a very long time.

Mein Auto: 13 335i 02RSX5MT 06ML350
Last night I found a BMW dealer that had close to what I wanted and I sent that to my dealer this morning to see if they could get it; he looked for it and it was gone, i also looked in the website and it was gone (must have been sold yesterday). Anyway, my CA communicated with me today and he said he found something close to what I wanted and the 335i M Sport Estoril Blue purchase fell through and is now available. I went in and test drove the Estoril Blue and it was awesome except for the color (no offense to those who have the Estoril Blue). To me it would grow old after about a year so I opted for the AW which was at VPC in Cali and should be delivered this week. The only options that were additional to my specs were 19" wheels, heated front seats and DHP.

EB2 is sexy. Where was the car and what specs did it have? also, what was the msrp on it? and where was it located? maybe it fits my build
