Despite my car being built for over a week it hasn't left the plant. UK cars are being held; anyone know why?

I am guessing that as the official launch date is not until November, they may not want the cars delivered to far in advance of that date. It may upet some people who have been told by dealers they will get their cars at launch if they see an M6 on the road 6 weeks early! I would guess they will do a rolling launch, but not as much as 6 weeks prior to launch! My dealer had their first M5 in for a good 10 days before BMW said they could let it go.

Thats my best guess anyway!

They are having problems with the oilpumps indeed, engine uses a lot of oil seems to be difficult to find the right pump for it.

I am told that my car will be about 2 weeks. Nothing firmer than that. I do have a chassis number. :flag: :flag: :flag: :15:

Whatever the delay was it's now on the train. I need to have hand controls fitted so should get hold of it on or slightly after 12th October.

It is between Thorne and the dealers - if it wasn't for the hand controls I'd be able to have it this weekend.
