Useful data point. The sequence seems to have restarted around 6/12-14. It may not go up to 3999. It's possible that it goes only to 3699. I didn't see any 34xx.

I think the biggest jump within 24 hrs is 178 cars, so it could be as high as 3999 still or at least 3899 is my estimate.

Something is not right. Did you see 178 American and Canadian families pack the Premium Lounge or see the names overflow on the TV monitors? I didn't.

It's true that it gets busy, several people picking up and appointment slots every 10 minutes. My guess is that there are 30 deliveries an hour at peak periods (6 time slots per hour and 5 deliveries per time slot). My car was delivered at turnstile 18, which is towards the back. The front areas can be seen from the Premium Lounge, are by the glass elevators, and have the flags and race car drivers' names.

Of those deliveries, the vast majority are Germans (source: my delivery specialist and looking at the TV monitors). They don't get Zoll plates.

Another data point is that an estimated 10% of European deliveries are done by bimmerfest users. There may be 2-3 bimmerfest deliveries per day.

Re: The Zoll plate tracking thread

I'd guess other manufacturers are using Zoll plates and that could explain the gaps.

Can BMW customers from other EU countries take BMW Welt delivery? And if so, do they bring their own EU plates or do they get temporary plates?

Also consider that we're seeing a spike in activity in May/June now that winter is over.

The numbers are definitely sequenced. 2 people sharing the same delivery day are currently showing 10 or less apart. shym picked up a car 2 days after me (I picked up Sat, shym picked up Mon) and our plates are only 8 apart.

Edit: Note also that Thu and Fri are big days for delivery... not every day has a volume increase of 178 cars, but the largest jumps are currently happening on Thu and Fri.

I'm pretty sure that they can, and I have to believe that they're getting the Zoll plates too, based on this poll.
