I think Turtle has it right. They need to move the leftovers at this point...What baffles me is why would BMW release the configurator so late after production of 2020 cars has stopped, leaving customers in a twilight zone where they can configure a 2020 car but not order one, and can order a 2021 car but not configure it (at least not online). Why can't the configurator go live the day one cannot order a 2020 car anymore?!

Not everyone is as adept at obsessing, planning, and ordering their cars as those of us on these forums. In fact, I'd think we are a very small percentage of the new car buyers. With that being said, most these days are probably still thinking 2020, and if they get on to shop & configure a car, they are expecting a 2020 in July.
Now, those of us building a car know where to find the ordering guides, and also know how to work with our chosen CA to order what we want and expect. In reality, we hardly need the configurator to do so... While it would be nice to see the car I built (and that is going into production the week of Aug 9th) online, I know what I'm getting and paying, without having to see it online. So, when the 2021 configurator goes live, I won't be expecting any surprises. In fact, working with my CA, I actually found a preferable package that was still being offered, but is not in the 2021 guides, and I doubt will be available online.
No, in general discounts are much lower now than they were prior to COVID. The inventory is very low throughout the country and prices show it. I was thinking about getting a 3-series for my wife and my sales manager said I should hold off for awhile if I can because they can't give much of a discount now compared to before. Inventory should increase in 2-3 months and the prices will then adjust.T They weren't even giving deep discounts either. Do you think we can get a deeper discount this year? ..
In the 2021 pricing guides, the Luxury Seating Pkg was downgraded to 2 items, just ventilated & multi-contour seats, for a $1000 package price.If I may, what package was that?
