2014 Z4 Allocation Question

Hello,

For those of you who ordered a 2014 Z4, how long did it take to get a chassis number or VIN number from your dealer?

I placed an order for a 2014 on June 22 and I don't have a number yet. When I ordered, the dealer told me it would take 75-90 day for delivery.

Yesterday, he told me he didn't have a number yet due to a delay, but that I was still in the 75-90 day delivery window.

Does this sound similar to your orders?

Thanks in advance!

VIN is issued 2 weeks before production begins. You should get a production # shortly after placing the order.

I spoke with the New Car Manager, and he doesn't have an allocation for this month. He is trying to do a swap with another dealership for an August production slot.

I should know in a day or two if one is available.

I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the replies, the waiting is the hard part!

Ordered my Z4 mid April. Dealer did not have an allocation. They tried to obtain an allocation from another dealer a nod could not. They finally received their allocation during the May 6. Got my production number. End of May production began. By mid June the Z was shipped. Got my Vin number. Last week of June the Z made it to Newark, NJ and the BMW prep center. Dealer received the Z on Friday June 28. I picked up the Z on Monday July 1 in the evening.

Got It

Thanks for the replies,

I finally got a production number, which shows up at the BMW USA website under My BMW as production started, but no other information than that.
