Moving from 3 to 5 - quick tracking question

Hi all, it's been a while since I posted. This past Saturday I just ordered my new '11 535i, replacing my '08 335i. Being my 3rd BMW, I'm familiar with the order tracking tool on bmwusa. Question though... My dealer modified an order to get my specs in place, and my status has already gone to 150 after only 2 days. After a day or so, my equipment list online matched that of the printout received at the dealer. However, my interior color is still showing as black instead of cinnamon. The printed order shows it correctly. Has anyone had an experience where the color info is incorrect on the online tracking but everything worked out fine? Being slightly OCD (!), I'm a little concerned. I'm trying to contain my excitement at least a few weeks until I get a better idea of the ETA.

I've found that sometimes the online information is incorrect because the dealer had to "modify" an existing build... and for whatever reason, the online tracking portion never gets updated correctly, even though your correct information is in the system. Your dealer can (and probably, should) double-check the build specs for you, though, just to calm any OCD tendencies.

Online system won't get updated until very late in the process. My car still doesn't show sport wheels.

Update - Online now correct info

OK, today the online status is showing "in production" and the interior color is correct. Everything looks good -- now just the wait.
