Okay my 330i went into production on Sept 4th and will be complete on Sept 13th, so it is taking 9 days.

I thought 2003 production started on Sept 1st.

Today is Sept 9th and some of you already have complete 2003's on the way.

??? Did they build your car in less days than 9 days, or did they start work on the 2003's before Sept 1st???

cars often only take 4-5 days to be built.

when did you go 151, and what are you now?
they said I was 150 today... and became 150 on Sept 4th. BMWNA said production will be complete (155) on Sept-13th.

ahh--there's your problem. While 150 technically means "production started", that's a bit of a misnomer. Basically I think it means they are getting together a batch of items needed for these cars. You can really tell when you've begun when you hit 151, body shop.

150 usually lasts 7 days, then it takes 3-5 to hit 160.

They actually started a few days before Sept 1, and it doesn't generally take 9 days, usually 4-5 days.

It went so quickly, that I hoped they didn't forget to stick in a steering wheel or something of more importance.

The hold up now seems to be at the loading dock. The ships are running full, mine has been waiting for 2-3 days to get on a boat, hopefully it will in the next day or so. But who is counting, right?

I am just happy it is coming sometime in the next month or so. I got the loan check today from Peoplefirst, so I am an ready to pay, and ready to play.

I'm in a similar situation. Mine has been at 150 status since 9/4. Called BMW NA today and the gentlemen said it was still in 150, but he had not seen many computer updates today. He recommended that I call tomorrow b/c it should may have progressed to 151 today. Still on target for production by 9/13 this Friday. :eek:

I hope we don't see a silent recall on all of the Friday the 13th cars a year or so from now! :eeps:
