Mid September 428 convertible

I am planning ED of a 428i convertible in mid September. Looking at SOP table, seems like it will be model year 2017. When will be a good time to start the process.

If your time frame in mid September overlaps with Oktoberfest I would get started within the next month. It's a busy time for the welt

Oktoberfest starts the 17th so I would get started immediately looking for a dealer you want to work with. You can structure the deal as x + invoice - incentives. Take into account all the fees.

As soon as dealers can place orders in for MY 2017 they should place the order for your car to secure you your first desired date. U can always change something once u and your CA review the 2017 ordering guide as your car won't go into production until late August early September.

Your welcome. I see you are on the west coast so quite a few board sponsors to work with.

I agree with Lionnutz- the order bank for MY 17 should open up in May or early June, so I'd get a jump on that asap because mid September is indeed a very popular time and hotels can get pricey and booked up for Oktoberfest.

Is it possible for a CA to reserve a delivery time/date before placing an order. Wondering if a CA can reserve a delivery date of September 19 now, even though order will not be placed until the order bank opens up in April/May time.
