i8 Interior Leather Availability as of July 21

Just a note to all who pre-ordered in the i8 in the US for launch production in August, September, and October - and most of which were Pure Impulse orders (which includes the Carum Spice Gray leather interior) - - found out today that BMW NA told dealers in US that their leather supplier could not meet demand for the initial production runs - so all those who ordered the grey interior full leather package were automatically 'converted' from the Pure Impulse Package to the Terra World package, which unfortunately (for some) is the dark (Dalbergia) brown leather seat with a brown cloth trim. The i8 full leather seats won't be available until early 2015 production and will only be on the MY2015 cars and going forward. (i8's being built now are MY2014).

Not all were changed, just some. If you had one ordered, I would call your CA, but if yours was among those switched, I'm sure they would have gotten a hold of you by now.

Mein Auto: 2014 i8 and some others
My dealer called last week and said BMW indicated to them nearly all US orders were affected about 165 cars. My August build was one of them.
