Question Tracking the order

I just placed an order for a 2013 535i space gray/ cinnamon. The dealer gave me the production number. however, when I sign in to https://www.bmwusa.com/Secured/Conte...ckYourBMW.aspx there is 535i xdrive which is black on black. I did not order an xdrive and the car that ordered is not black. When mentioned, the dealer says that it is normal and BMW does that for security purposes. Is this true? Anyone experienced anything similar?
Thanks._a_

Tracking

I guess you will have to rely on the dealers advice, however, when I last ordered a car in 2009 there was no error on the BMW tracking link.

Maybe it is my luck. I will wait a couple of more days since it's been only 2 days since I ordered.

Just wait. It'll be updated once your car actually goes into production. My 535i was shown as white non M-sport. When it went into production, the color and all the options changed and were as ordered.

That's a relief. I thought there was something fishy with the dealer.
