Tracking production - how long does it take?

I have been tracking my car online for the past 3 weeks and it is still in processing. How long does it typically take to enter production? I also called the 800# and it says no info one when it will enter production.

Ask your CA, he or she should have more details than the BMW online and the 1-800 number.

It depends on the dealer's allocation slots. Are you working with a small volume dealer? My 3 ordered BMW's were always overlaid on stock orders already in the system, modified to my specs. My F10 was ordered (Aug 2010) on a Saturday and went into production the following Monday. Waiting 3 weeks for it to enter production is pretty long, IMO. Call your dealer. There could possibly be a problem with the order specs.

Mine took 7 weeks to enter production and complete. My dealer changed the build in an existing slot but since I chose Dark Red Sycamore (an Individual wood trim) it was pushed off significantly.

Mine finished production yesterday and is waiting to be picked up by transport.
