Hello,
This is my first day on this Forum, just thought I'd say hello! I presently own a 2012 650i XDrive, two weeks ago I put in my order for a 2013 Alpina B7, they tell me it's about a ten to twelve week ordeal from order to delivery, I wish it was here already! I was like a kid with a new toy waiting for my 650, checking everyday on MY BMW! Heck, I'm a kid at heart even though I'm old. My sales person said nothing would probably show on MY BMW for a few weeks but I still check every day! It shows nothing but when I call it says order entered, waiting for production with no specific production date!

Sounds like it will be a stunner! Congratulations...the end result will be worth the wait! Personally, I find this kind of anticipation to be a lot of fun.

Just contacted the dealer, she told me my car is scheduled on the assembly line the week of September 3rd. Then off to Alpina for another 10 to 14 days, then shipping and trucking another 10 to 14 days. It looks to me I'll be driving my new buggy by mid October? When you hear scheduling dates it tends to make life a little easier because you have a date circled on the calender!

Didn't see you were from Nashville! My fiancÚ and I were down there a few months back for the Eric Church concert. We had a wonderful time; loved the city and had some of the best barbecue at Jacks (had it for dinner Friday and lunch Saturday)! We look forward to returning, but unfortunately have both been too busy with work.

welcome! I got a new 7 this year too. It's exciting to get a car this nice. Grats on getting a b7 as well. I like the more sedate look of the regular 7 but envy the power of the alpina.

The dealer sent me an e-mail yesterday and said the car is being produced early. It originally had a production week of (Week 36, first week of September) She then gave me my VIN number. I called the 800 number and the message changed. It now states: Vehicle in production with a completion date of September 4, 2012. I'll assume that's when they'll send to Alpina for the two week tour of duty at their facility? If it doesn't sit in the shipping yard too long I'm thinking I'll be driving my new hot rod by mid-October? I'm getting excited now!

Hi,
My wait is getting shorter, ordered July 27th, car came off the line Sept.4th on it's way to Alpina, about 80 miles away. I'm told they take about two weeks (it appears they only work 36 hours a week) then off to the port up North. I'm hoping I'll have it in five weeks!

Frustrated

I'm back,
When I ordered my 2012 650i "MY BMW" worked wonderful, keeping me updated on a regular basis! Not sure if the Alpina has something to do with it or not but this time it Sucks! Tried to use it, enter VIN it kicks me out, BMW Customer Service is clueless? The 800 Number has been moving forward then backpeddling? So, here is what I know: Car Ordered 8/27, Car Assembled @ Dingolfing 9/03 (sat in lot at Dingolfing for 17 days?). Delivered to Alpina Bushloe, they had it for 15 days, shipped back to Dingolfing. Sat at Dingolfing for a couple days before shipping to Bremerhaven Port, awaiting vessel. It appears the next possible vessels heading this way are W&W "Turandot" leaving Bremerhaven 10/17, arriving in Brunswick 11/05. Another is
K-Line "Florida Highway" leaving Bremerhaven 10/17, arriving in Brunswick 10/31. Does anyone on this forum know which shipping lines BMW uses?

How the heck can BMW not know where a 150k car is at?!?

If I were you I'd be calling and going as far to the top of BMW NA till I got a straight answer.

I worked for a worldwide company and had dealings in Germany, it worked a whole lot better then BMW! I did make calls that's how I finally found out what was happening. As with my new Vette, which was held for two weeks in Bowling Green (Quality assurance checks), I'll assume BMW did the same? You pose a very serious question for BMW!

When I ordered my BMW Neiman Marcus M6 they actually lost my car for over a month and did not know where it was. It was quite an amazing experience as they finally found it being stored somewhere it shouldn't have been. It was then shipped from Germany and finally arrived around 6 weeks late.

I know it is hard to believe but it happened to me. The only way I got anyone to do anything was because it was a special Neiman Marcus M6 and there was a special number for this car that put you into special operators in New Jersey.

If I hadn't had that number it might still be missing.
