How much time is needed between placing an order and pickup at the Welt

How long do I need to have my car order placed before I pick it up in Munich? I'm looking for a nov 3rd pickup, but am still working through the numbers with my CA. Getting a little nervous about home much time is needed.

As long as you are flexible with dates, you're generally ok with around 6 weeks as a minimum. I think I remember a few doing it with shorter lead times, but you usually want to start the process 2 months in advance to make sure you get the date you want. November isn't peak tourist season, so ED pickups should likewise be fewer in numbers, giving you a better chance...

You're right on the cusp. Hopefully they have a delivery slot on that date, the Welt is a crowded place!

I thought it was 2 months and 3 months if you wanted dates/times exactly as you want it. However if you are flexable (as stated) much shorter times can be done. If I were the OP I would get to work on it asap. N4S

Completed purchase order cutoff is 30 days prior to pickup. That of course doesn't take into consideration the prior decision, negotiation and communication time required to get to the "final purchase order" configuration. Hyperzulu's six-week window should probably be considered as an absolute minimum, and that's working with an experienced ED CA.

Yes I think it depends more on that than anything else.

Plus you did not say if what you are getting is on allocation.

428xi, probably not on the allocation. I'm just waiting for quotes to get back to me on my final build, but responses aren't as quick as I would like! Hey people are busy, I understand.

2 months should be plenty of time right now. If the ED calendar is any sort of temperature gauge for the relative amount welt pickups, you should have no problem during the winter months.
