Mein Auto: 2006 550i
New baby finished production today

Hey guys, this is my first post here. I have been reading for a while, and am excited to post that my 550i just finished production today. It is mystic blue with auburn interior, cold weather package, sport package, SMG, and active steering. I will now join the ranks of the crazy people tracking a boat; I should find out the first part of next which ship it will be on.

Welcome to the club! Are these your first BMW's?

Just wondering: when did you two hit status 150? I was status 150 (and sat at 150 all this week) on November 3rd and was wondering when my car might actually get rhrough.

Yes, this is my first BMW. It hit status 150 on Nov. 2. It has been dispatched from AG (status 190). My dealer was amazed at how fast the car made it through production, since it was only ordered two weeks ago.

Thanks for the reply! And, wow, that WAS quick!


Just curious - did you get most of your status updates through the Owner's Circle pages, or did you just get them from your dealer?

I got all of my updates from my dealer. Owner's circle has just said it was in production, and still says that. I'm sure the dealer will be glad when I have the car, so I will stop bugging him for updates constantly.

I've been deliberating my decision to buy a new E60 (this will be my third 5-series) for over a year now. I've been bugging the you-know-what out of my dealer. What's a little more bugging?

I hope you really enjoy your 550i. I'm more than a little jealous, but I need AWD here and don't want an SUV.
