Website Track Your BMW Feature

Of course the feature on BMW North America Website allows you to track your car from order to delivery. I have read here that the feature is "roughly accurate." I was surprised today when plugging my order number in revealed that "production ends" for my 2015 M4. My delivery date is not until July 25 @ Welt. Why would they build the car this soon to store it. I realize they will be, at some point, be switching production to the 2016 models but why would my car sit for over 4 months waiting for me ? The dealer had to use an M4 out of his allocation as any other dealership. Does it mean he used an allocation from early in the year and now the car will have to sit for my arranged delivery date?

Have you called the 800 number? It's much more reliable than the online tool. If that says it has finished production, then it was probably just the allocation being used.

That's interesting. I called the 800 number today to get an update on my car (I pick up in 28 days from today) and the woman I spoke with said they don't have visibility into production schedules for ED cars.

No...but I will now! haha It's not a big deal, just surprised me to think my car is already in exsistence. Part of me wants my car to be "newer" when I pick it up...like only having been produced 2 weeks prior to me receiving it. I crack myself up sometimes but found a community of people just like me on this forum

Not true -- at least mostly. After the automated system told me my car was in production yesterday I transferred to a human. The CSR was able to tell me my car hit the 150 production status and that the car would be completed on Thursday. But she couldn't find the VIN. I then emailed my CR who forwarded the VIN about a hour later. FWIW my car is being produced approx 3 weeks before p/u.

Thanks Wine-O. My car is still in the modifiable stage, meaning it's not yet locked into BMW's system. It should go into production about 2 weeks prior to pickup.

After calling the 800 number I learned my car is in fact produced. As I figured the car was made this early because of the dealership allocation for early 2015 was used. So my car will wait for me all of way to July to be delivered.
