***What is BMW doing about the July/August LCI missing the 704 Msport Suspension?***

Hey guys,

I don't want to look track or focus on this while it is still very hot. The other thread is now closed and locked for some reason and I want this thread to be only about the issue of what BMW is going to do for us early build Msport cars without the 704 Msport Suspension that will be included going forward (Sept builds). I don't want this to get swept under the rug by BMW.

I'm sure there are a lot of people here who is on this boat doing whatever they can to find out more information and this thread would be very helpful for others to know whats going on.

Lets keep personal feelings aside and only post relevant information about your findings.

We already know how great the 704 suspension is.

We know that starting September builds the LCI RWD model 535, 550 and 535d Msport Package will get it.

We all know BMW screwed up and we are now waiting to see how they handle the situation.

If John/Justin with inside connections could post more information about what BMW is officially going to do it would be much appreciated by everyone following this.

Alan

I've sent more than 1 email to BMW customer service expressing my thoughts on this issue. To this point, they have gone unanswered, but i will post here as soon as I hear back.

BMW customer relations rep says she is not aware of the issue. She just kept saying talk to my dealer about having it added (yea right), or just order another vehicle since it hasn't been paid yet. Not encouraging.

I emailed BMW NA last week and have now been assigned a rep as of yesterday. I have not heard from the rep yet but will let you know as soon as I do. I also have my CA involved but not sure what he can do to help at this point.

I was holding off posting until I had something note worthy but posted this as I wanted to support Alan with his request for updates. Sorry that I haven't made any progress yet but I will let you know as soon as I do.

Everyone else, please let us know what you are doing to get resolution.

BMW NA Customer Relations: 800.831.1117, option 0. Please feel free to call them. They are getting a large number of calls about this. I spoke with a supervisor who spoke with an M specialist. BMW NA is responsible for finding a solution, not BMW Germany. They are evaluating options which will take approximately 1 to 2 weeks. She will call me back in 3 to 5 business days with an update. She suggested that I consider reordering the car. I asked who then would get my built 2014 550i M Sport without the m sport suspension that is almost fully optioned and will be difficult to sell. She the car will be the dealer's car when I reorder. I am sure that Elmhurst BMW will be overjoyed to hear this. I have always admired BMW. This is No. 8 BMW for me, immediate family members, and my company in 12 years that I personally paid for. This my second BMW for wifey and I this year. This situation is FUBAR and not being able resolve this in timely manner is making a bad situation worse. Buying an expensive BMW is not supposed to be a painful, time consuming experience. Deleting the M sport suspension was incompetent and the painfully slow resolution of this problem adds to the misery. This impacts BMW Enthusiasts, who are quite loyal, who ordered the M Sport. FUBAR.

Addendum 11:32 CST

I just spoke with the sales manager at my local dealership. He said what is probably occurring is that it is a supplier issue that needs to be resolved and goes back to the inventory of the parts and production capacity for the parts. They are striving to work through the situation with BMW NA so that I can just order a replacement and my car reverts back to BMW NA because they will have a hard time selling it.

If it was a supplier problem, I would think they would have delayed MSport production until there was a sufficient supply of parts in the pipeline.

Mein Auto: LCI 550i Msport
Thinking about this over the past week is stressing me out. Like you said buying a car like this should NOT be this stressful. Normally I am extremely excited about tracking my car progress across the pond but this suspension thing has really dampened this.

I would say the best possible solution for each party (dealer, customer and BMWNA) is to have the suspension refitted at the VDC for the cars not delivered yet. Why?

They can still pull off the shocks, springs and sway bars off the cars and redistribute them back into the production cycle or be used as spare/replacement parts to minimize any financial lost to BMW. Once the customer or even the dealer takes delivery of the car those parts can no longer be considered new imo.

As a loyal enthusiast of the brand I will be utterly disappointed if BMW does not do the right thing here. They simply can not turn their backs on us when it was their mistake to begin with.

I typically don't like to get first model year for anything especially if its german but who would have thought a simple LCI refresh mid cycle would cause such a mess.

Alan

I would guess that for the non-704 cars ("pseudo-lemons") still in the delivery pipeline (i.e. not yet delivered to customers or to dealers), the 704 suspension will be retrofitted at VPC prior to delivery to dealers or to PCD for customer pickup in SC. Cars already in dealer inventory around the country will ALL (no exceptions) be retrofitted by dealers (or at regional "supershops) at BMW's cost. Cars already in customer possession will have 2 options for remedy: 1) full MSRP credit against new replacement vehicle with the pseudo-lemon and new 704 cars physically exchanged immediately on delivery to dealer, or 2) no cost retrofit of 704 suspension through dealer with comparable/acceptable loaner vehicle for duration of retrofit. Of course all current production (for September delivery) will have 704 suspension as promised (RWD M-Sport non-DHP 535i/d and 550i). That's my guess, just now pulled with no difficulty at all right out of my ...

I just sent another email to the BMWNA rep Rachel Clark who answered one of my original questions about the Msport suspension as well as a few other members here. I even included a screen shot showing the false advertisement by bmwusa.com when it had the Msport package includes Msport suspension before they changed it. Lets see what she come back with...

Couple days ago I sent my CA about the issue and he said car is in production nothing can be done. This morning after talking with BMW customer relations rep, I expressed my concern to my CA one more time because the more I think about it the more stress I get. We are not picking our car until 9/17 for ED so it seems like there's enough time to build another car. So this time he said it should be ok to do the re-order. I am waiting for his confirmation.

I know this doesn't really help in regards to the subject... but just to show that my CA still has NO info about retrofitting at VPC or whatsoever.

I think Jon's advice from last week bears repeating. Everyone just breathe
Being proactive and contacting anyone you think can help is great, but beyond that I hate to see you guys stressed out potentially taking days off your lives.
I think to Alan's point about the tone if this thread, that sticking to facts without stress-inducing speculation is best for all of us.
That will be 5 cents, please.

Alan, thanks for starting this thread.

I have an email into my CA, he forwarded it to his Sales Manager who then sent it to his "market rep" Waiting for a response.

In the mean time, i have an email into BMW customer relations and they responded to me yesterday telling me they are investigating my claim and will be in touch soon.

There was a report this morning on Bloomberg news about BMW customers having to wait for parts due to a supply system issue. According to BMW it will be resolved in the coming month. I wonder if the M-suspension is impacted?

this was my first BMW and was so much excited about ED.

This whole situation is frustrating. There are many dealers here on this forum like Jon, justin who knows about this issue but when spoke to my CA today, response was "there is no such issue. Your 2014 535i does come with 704". I am like really?

I have my ED on September 9th and just read about this issue but dont know what to do since all flights and hotels are booked for 4 people. hope they announce the solution soon..

Interesting article, but this appears to be a supply chain issue with their Parts Distribution Centers rather than a supplier to factory parts supply issue.

Yeah the parts supply issue is a seperate problem BMW was having. That's the reason why my 2013 is going back to BMW and the LCI will be replacing it.


The 704 were being installed on the LCI right from the beginning......just not on the cars going to the US. I'd imagine all F10's are built on the same assembly line but once a US spec Msport one came along they installed the standard suspension on it while the euro models got the 704.

Understood, I was just thinking that maybe retrofits will have to come out of the spare parts if they were not planned for in the production quota and thereby making the retrofit more of an issue than it should be, hence the weird recommendation from BMW to re-order a new car instead of just getting retro-fit done in a couple hours.

I took delivery of my 2014 M-Sport 550i yesterday and it did not have the 704 suspension. I am very disappointed as the handing is very loose and there is substantial wheel gap. I have contacted my CA and voiced my concerns. I am looking forward to hearing about someone getting some resolution here. If I get anywhere I will update this thread.

I just contacted dealer and reordered the car. According to him that was the only one thing they could do. My car was already in production, now I have to wait at least four more weeks...

It's interesting that BMW NA is passing the buck onto the dealer (by refusing to take delivery). I think a lot of the July/August LCI buyers were trying to move quickly to take advantage of the Ultimate Drive rebate and opted out of the M-sport package after seeing that there was no 704. It makes it seem as if BMW is trying to get people to reorder for the 704 (and thereby losing the $1k rebate).

GM recently gave its customers extra cash back when the Volt price drop occurred. With the 6GC M Sport edition there was a major price drop and rumor has it that owners may get rebates. I would think that for the M-sport issue, they would save a lot of face by doing the same. I can't imagine that there is a plethora of M-sport purchasers in July/August who also want 704 beyond the group here, so it can't be that big of a hit to their bottom line.

Maybe BMW NA can convince BMW AG to do a Performance Power Kit for the F10 and offer it free to July/Aug. The R&D cost is minimal and since it's a software upgrade, BMW NA would just be paying much less than a full suspension change.

Can you ask your CA to print out the latest VIR? Mine was updated to show 704 on it last week.

I'm just curious, why did you take delivery or why did you not just buy a 2013?

If those buyers do not need a car, they can wait until November when the rebates/credits are substantially better than the drive event cash.
