Question Jon Shafer: is it true that no 03 330cis will be built before November?

Jon,
My dealer is telling me that BMW is not building any 03 330cis in September or October. They will be built starting November and hence a December delivery. He said he looked at the allocations for all the dealers in the US. Is this true?

Thanks a lot!

LOL...We should compile a list of dealer BULLSH*T so Jon can use as training material for his underlings as how NOT to deal with potential customers.

Hmmm, methinks the dealer wants him to buy an '02 off the lot now, tyring to scare him away from ordering an '03? Kills two birds with one stone, I guess.

Crazy, you . . . nah!

There seem to be so many dealers that just have no clue what they are talking about. It seems like most dealers know much less about the car than the buyer.

I always like the line..."I've got more than that in this car!" Sooooo...you've never heard of taking a loss. Not my fault you bought it wrong.

It's called laziness. Unfortunately folks don't get paid to know things or think, they just get paid to sell it. And sell it they do!

A fellow Indy E46er! What part of town do you live in? I'm pretty sure I'd remember seeing your car, and I don't. Not too many verts here. Take care.
