Ordered 1st week of June, (M140 Shadow) car still not gone into build, although meant to next week, estimated to be another 4 weeks until arrival at dealer - by the time I get it the wait will of been 13 weeks. Good luck to all those others also waiting...
Ordered 2nd week of July and as of a couple of nights ago it was at Chassis Number Allocated and Production imminent. Hopefully that won't mean 13 weeks! 🙊

Local dealer on South Coast. Don't know if the factory wait until there's enough to batch produce a load of cars in one go?

I don't think they built many if any in June due to manual version ending production - this caused a back log of orders now so things are taking a bit longer. Virtually nothing happended with my order for 5 weeks!

Hopefully they'll be up and running again now and yours will be built and shipped quickly. I'll check in again with BMW Genius in a few days.

Mines also at that stage, Genius states that arrival at dealer will still be 4 weeks from now!

Ordered 1st week of June, unlikely I'll have it until 2nd week in Sept, 13-14 week start to finish....

Not too many options. Would have liked Adaptive Suspension and Driver Assist for extra safety, but soon tots up the cost! Hopefully spec showing in the signature now.

A couple of nights ago genius said delivery roughly end of August. Yours certainly had a delay 😬

    Lovely, sounds much the same as mine, only spec difference is the adaptive suspension! Cant wait.

      Hello, I ordered one last week, delivery looks to be mid September, which isn’t too bad.

      Gone for F20 M140i Shadowline, Sapphire Black with Oyster

      Media Pack
      Electric Seats & Memory
      Heated Seats
      Heated Steering
      Reversing Camera
      High Beam Assist
      Front and Rear PDC
      Folding Mirrors
      High Gloss Black Trim
      719M Wheels

      Optioned to bring it £25 under the stupid new £40k RRP.

      My 18th BMW, and going to be a little change from the current M4 CP, but just fancy something different.

      Nice. Will be a good contrast with the Oyster. That list price car tax threshold is a pain. 18th BMW!? :beerchug:

        How are the orders progressing guys?

        Mine was scheduled for build this week but still not commenced yet. At least it'll hold out for a 68 plate! 🙂
