Ok,,I stand corrected, I just got off the phone with BMW and my car is STATUS 155 waiting for final inspection and will be finished by TUESDAY! It will then sit and wait until the boat is full, then it will sit in the United States Port for a couple of weeks waiting for the US to let the dealers have it.


They are head of schedule but don't get you hopes up too high, I am thinking early OCT to Mid OCT...

Thats great Floyd! My car went status 150 the very same day yours did, so mine is probably 155 as well. Looks like we will be driving soon! :wroom:

That is correct, mine is headed for "Charlie Town" for those of us that have lived in Charleston....what a town....Hint for single guys, I will let the cat out of the bag "been a big secret". Because of the 2 medical schools in Charleston, the city is 9-1 ratio. Girls are so agressive, no game needed. It is nice to see how a girl feels when at a bar.


Floyd, I am happy and married now, but what a town for any age.

Are you guys using "Owners circle" to follow production and is it accurate?

Do you know what the original production week was and was it accurate or did the get you car done sooner. Also, I think that wait here must be until the cars are released as new 2006 models because it shouldn't sit that long.
Maybe some later builds will arrive at the dealers at the same time.

I hope for October builds the cars will get here pretty quickly. For example my July 00 build E39 was delivered on July 31 to me.

I pray the engine gods give us a good one. May your smg put you back in your seat and not push you out of it.

The OC is realy inaccurate and delayed and doesn't give you all the codes. Call your sales person every other day an he will log into the system live and give you the real scoop. He even told me that my car was put in the system 7:03 a.m. on the day I called. I will be giving my sales guys a nice gift for the running arournd I give him, I am always calling and he is always helping with a smile...
