Questions about the order process?

Forgive an inexperienced newb. I'm curious abot the ordering process, especially as it would be in an ED order.

1. When you place an order do you need to have your financing secured or do you need to secure it upon delivery?

2. If you do not need to have financing secured what do you put down when you place your order.

Pricipally, Do you pay now or pay later?

Thanks every one. This is my first post after 72 hours of the most hipnotic lurking i've ever done.

1. Financing is secured on the day of pickup (traditional delivery), 2 weeks before pickup (Performance Center Delivery) and 2 weeks (or more, not sure) for European Delivery.

2. Typicall the CA would ask you for a deposit anywhere between $500-$1000. You really shouldn't put down more than that. This can be via funds or credit card. Check to see if the deposit is refundable in the event you decide to cancel the order. This should get your order rolling.

Be sure to visit the specific euro delivery, pricing and order tracking threads. There is a wealth of info here.

Good luck and congrats!!

No problem...btw I checked, payment/financing needs to be finalized at least a full month before Euro Delivery pick up date.

Excellent, thanks. My next question is. How long before ED can you order your car. Im closing on a new condo in May so I don't wanna disturb my credit till then. Unfortunately, I'm visciously obsessing about 335's all day and I need to do something to mitigate this torture. Dropping an order would do that.

To clarify, can I order now and take delivery in June of '07 or is this just stupid.

You can work with your Client Advisor on that. They should be able to accomodate your required date. Its good that you give them plenty of time if you have an exact specific date in mind. Be sure to get a CA who is well versed in the intricacies of Euro Delivery. It really does make a difference. A lot of CAs do not have the proper experience.

Well, to answer your question, I see no problem in ordering now for a June 2007 delivery. The only thing you lose out is the interest your $500-1k may be earning during the time period. Typically, an order takes about 4-6 weeks from a typically issued 112 status to production completion. So 2-3 months before ED date is ample time.

KL2 makes some good points. I also recommend going to bimmerfest.com. There's an entire forum on ED and you'll get better response/answers there. Most any question that you can think of has already been answered there.

FYI: I ordered my car 6-mths before Munich pick-up. In fact, I ordered it before it was officially announced and before prices were announced. However, summer time is always busier, so if you get the ball rolling after the New Year then you should be in good shape.
