Does this mean my dealer was yanking my chain about having an allocation? My order is in status 112 and priority 3. I asked my CA today to change the status to priority 1 but haven't heard back yet....

Is there any reason they would give pushback about changing from priority 3 to priority 1? Still haven't heard back

yep.
BMW online tracking has it as order received and 800 number says vehicle scheduled for production with no confirmed production date. Emailed my CA yesterday asking about a production date and changing to priority 1 and have yet to hear back.

Then you have a problem. I am from S.A and my order was placed on the 28th August and the vehicle only went into production last week and I am hoping to take delivery on Saturday. There was a major delay on the M sports at the plant as well as a general shortage of allocations for the 335i.

I've brought up the SA issues to them and they still say i will have it by christmas, so i don't know if they know something i dont or just dont deal with SA builds much....or they are just stringing me along

.Asked about the production week scheduled for my allocation and my CA says that allocations don't have set production weeks and they are assigned individually....but that seems to contradict what everyone says here?

Your order should be Priority 1 and there should be zero issue making that change. Have they done that?
