April SOP/M Sport-Production status?

Has anyone who ordered the M-Sport package for 4/11 SOP received a production week yet (status 112)? My order has been in status 111 for close to 2 weeks.

I wonder if the part supply for the automatic tail-hitch is also an issue with being moved to status 112?

Finally, wonder why the BMWUSA website has not been updated with Carbon Black metallic to date, despite being 10 days into the month?

I had my dealer place the order without conveni. pkg....to drop the power tailgate. Otherwise it delays production to a May build...(then you have to add Nav)

Have your dealer try that. Then order each item you want that was in the Conven. pkg seperately... without the power tailgate. You do lose some by not getting that packaged deal..But it is the only way to get your order to status 112 before May.

No pics = "you're a big fat liar whose pants are actually on fire". You have an obligation to post photos of your vehicle. Failure to fulfill this obligation can result in us hunting you down.

There is a M Sport on Ebay with real photos...You folks sure about the look of that package? I think the wheels are too small as it is...The M Sport looks flat out silly with those Miami Vice era fairings and dinky flat-faced wheels...!

Yes, I am sure. Your opinion is yours to keep.

BTW, a link to that "ugly" car would be appreciated since I see no BMW X3 MSport on Ebay???

The title doesn't list it as M sport, but the pictures show it is.

Wow, you must make lots of friends everywhere you go. We all have opinions and we all state them, but there is no need to deliberatly try and antagonize everyone, unless that is your thing - and there are names for that.

What you saw on eBay is a 28i with ZMP and unfortunately it gets the 18" 368M wheels. Not nearly as attractive (IMHO) as the 369M's. I doubt many of the folks here with an M Sport on order opted for the 28i, but if they did then they might like those wheels and who are we to try and make them feel bad about that?

DOOD - you rock more than you could ever realize!! Your link and my brilliant detective work has answered a question I and other have been wondering about.

If you examine the photos of the car carefully, you can see that it has DDC installed. However.... wait for it.... it does not have the Performance Package on the sticker, in fact all it has is ZMP, ZPP, SAT, and Metallic Paint.

PRESTO - ZMP includes DDC - something I have been trying to find a solid answer to.

Agreed, those are the 18" 368 wheels, not the 19" 369M wheels that most of us have ordered in the 35i MSport pkg. I posted same general comment in the "other" forum against your good post over there, LEDZEP. Thanks.

I see it now, although poorly presented by the lister. You may note that the wheels on the MSport pkg for a 28i are different from the wheels on the 35i MSport pkg. So, your comments about the wheels do not relate to most of the orders on here for 35i MSport...

Facts not your long suit; just annoying people?
