F10 Build is offline

OK -- just went to play with F10 BYO, and found out it is offline. There's a message at the bottom, "Build your own coming soon". Hmm, what gives? The 3 and 7 BYO is still operational. Is there a shake-up of F10 content maybe, like, dropping the lines??? Anyone know anything in detail?

Not sure, but finance/lease offers disappeared for the 5 yesterday. BMW seems to be having some technical issues.

Now that my 2014 is on the way, they'll probably drop the weight 500 lbs, lose the silly lines, bring back the manual transmission, firm up the steering & suspension, and drop the price $10k for 2015.

Yes. I was told by a reliable source that BMW will be dropping the 5er altogether. It will be replaced in the lineup by Audi A6 for the upscale customer and for a Kia 900 or 9000 or whatever for the low end 528 buyer. BYO for both to be available on 4/1.

Mein Auto: 2014 550i
While not as funny as the last comment, I get an web page that says "application error" when trying to track the progress of my build. My car was offloaded in NJ yesterday so I know where it is, but it's still a little disappointing to not be able to see the progress jump to the next box.

Here in the lowlands we will be offered Hyundai Genesises with roundels fitted for types like me. If not available before 4-1 the complementary 20 inch wheels will be fitted with RFT's for free!

It's back online. I didn't notice any changes, but I only took a very quick look at it.

Now that the 5ers are back on the Special Offers list, it looks like there are some great numbers for leasing this month. For example, the 550xi is showing a 63% residual for 36 months, 10k/year!
