Mein Auto: BMW 650IC
Production in October...

I placed my order for a 2006 650IC/6-speed in July for a September build.

There were no SMG/6-speeds in September so then postponed to October.

Now I have a production completion date of Oct 7 but delivery (ED) not until a month later. Seems like I could simply have them put it on a boat to the US and I would get it about the same time. Of course would lose the ED savings and no European driving (but I get that all the time - just not in a 650I).

PS> Have you also tried speaking to the BMWNA customer reps they maybe able to tell you where she is in the process, as the automated phone is not too accurate.

I have a completion date of Oct 5th, our 550's are probably saying hi to eachother on the production line right now....

Only 5 weeks til I'm driving her, I can't wait! I'm probably not going to get enough sleep for all of October....

Hopefully it is just a friendly wave of their doors and they aren't "high fiving" each other....

Ditto your comments

The good news is that SMG will take training for her, so I have the perfect excuse NOT TO SHARE!!
