BMW Individual wood inlay steering wheel

So my car finally went into production today! Finally.

I noticed on the web site it says under the cold weather package - BMW Individual wood inlay steering wheel. (I did not choose that when I ordered the car)

I have to assume this is an error because I did not order that, my interior is cinnamon Dakota leather with anthracite trim...if you build the car online and check BMW Individual wood inlay steering wheel it will change the trim to Dark Red Sycamore Wood trim and removes the anthracite as the trim choice.

When I look at the production build it says - Anthracite Wood Trim. Its not possible (according to the build your own on bmwusa.com page) to have Anthracite Wood Trim and BMW Individual wood inlay steering wheel...at least it seems impossible when I try to replicate those choices on the web site.

Anyone else have an error like this in their build? I read others have info on the build that was not accurate but still ending up getting the correct car they ordered. It has to be an error because I can't see them giving me $1900 worth of extra options I did not order and for the same payment I agreed too. I plan to call the sales rep tomorrow but just curious if anyone knows anything about this.

Edit: also I notice once you check M Sport Package it also removes BMW Individual wood inlay steering wheel so it seems its impossible for this to be correct in the production build I am looking at.

I just checked my order and it says I'm getting both the heated steering wheel and the wood inlay steering wheel. But we know this is impossible.

I pulled my vehicle up on www.bmwvin.com and it showed that I'm getting code S248A - Steering wheel heater. I do not see any code listed that says I am getting a wood inlay steering wheel. So I suppose my build is correct (I did not order the wood inlay steering wheel).

I think it is a mistake on the website.

I tried my order # and it didn't work.

Ask the guy who sold you the vehicle. He can look up your VIN real quick.

If you are going into the bmwusa.com site and entering your production # to track your vehicle, the options/features are not accurately depicted on the site. I recall when I was tracking our F10, it also showed the wood inlay and adaptive drive which I did not order. Your CA should have given you the order printout when he/she placed your vehicle order. That sheet is the most accurate as it is generated per their internal ordering system.

Production # works. However, it may take a few days for the website to register that information. The 800 number is much more updated. 800-831-1117.

Funny, I noticed the exact same thing on my order. Must be a system glitch.

I have the same issue; one steering wheel under M Sport Package and one under Cold Weather Package. I did the same exercise as you on the BMW site. I assume I will have the M Sport steering wheel but I didn't reach out to confirm. Did you get in touch with them?

Yeah they said build is correct, web site is wrong...I can't see them giving us $3,000+ worth of options that we did not want for no extrs charge lol
