Order sequence.... what's next?

I ordered a 530xiT late October. The dealer tells me it's "on their books" only, until they receive some kind of a placement or allocation (?) in January. Then I get a tracking number, and it's another 30-45 days from there. Does that sound right? I thought it took 90 days from order to delivery.

You might want to try another dealer. While the sequence is correct there is no reason for you to have to wait this long. The dealer should be able to take another dealer's unused or undesired allocation. Mine did. I ordered a 530xiT at the very end of October (might have been submitted first of November) and the car is already built and on a ship. It might actually get here before the end of the year but my dealer knows I don't want to take delivery until January so I can get a $1,000 BMWCCA rebate (plus I'm locked in to the lease rates in case they go back up). Find a dealer that will go the extra mile for you.

Thank You!!!!!

That fries me!!! We're having a little pow-wow tomorrow....!

These guys have been unprofessional from the start. I don't get it.

I see you're in Pasadena. Did you buy from Rusnak? Also, what's the $1,000 rebate??

Actually I'm in El Segundo, work in Pasadena.

I do business with South Bay BMW in Torrance. I've a very strong relationship with them, one client advisor who is like family and two of the sales managers as well. My experiences have been good ones.

The $1,000 BMWCCA rebate is a BMW Car Club of America benefit to members of one year or more. Depending on which series of BMW you purchase or lease you can redeem one rebate per year. For a 5-series it is $1,000.

think you need to find another dealer...

i'm in NY... orderd my car nov 10... had a production # on the 11th... car started production a couple of days later and was finished and transported to the port by the 23rd... made the ship a few days later and is due in NY by dec 9th...

since you're on the west coast, the only thing that should be different for you is the time it takes to cross the ocean (think its roughly extra week or so) and maybe it doesnt go into production in 2-3 days but in 7-10 (depending on your dealer's allocations and volumes).

check the FAQ section on e60.net for a typical order/production timeframe.

good luck. tell your dealer to speed it up... the wait is killing me already.

You guys are RIGHT ON!!! I did switch dealers, and it's a good thing because I'd be REALLY UPSET had I waited any longer. What's wrong with some of these dealers, I just don't get it? These guys (local Santa Barbara) were sitting on my order waiting until MAYBE they got an xiT allocation in January. The new dealer found an allocation in the system with another dealer, and boom I have a production number & on my way. There's no consideration of the effect on one's life and careful planning when a dealer sits on an order like that.

Again, thanks for this knowledge base. VERY HELPFUL!!!!
