You are lucky to have got yr cabbie so quick. I have been told to wait up to 6 months for mine and boy is the waiting killing me. With all those extras you have on your car, you could have bought a 550i?

6 months? Is this due to some special option? I was told 4 to 6 week waiting, from placing order.

Haven't ordered anything extraordinary (although have been doing some enquiries on "post packages" like Sportech / Autoworx / Autostyling) but I have selected some of the standard optional extras as in the Price List guide.

Apparently, 70% of SA made cars goes overseas and of the 30%, Corporates get a large chunk and then lastly the individual. I was also genuinely told "expect to wait for up to up to six months" but the dealer called me the other day, he has pulled some strings and has placed my order on the Corporate list and I am now getting it in April. From 6 to 3. Cool but still a long wait.

I am also trying to track the progess on BMW\Ownerscircle to no avail. Dealer tells me all is loaded correctly from his side. Does anyone know if SA Web Site is operational as I have also been trying to register as a "client" and get told that my application will be responded to in 3 hours. That was four days ago....

South African owner's circle does function. However, my details only started reflecting on the website as it got closer to production, even though my dealer said she had linked all the details long before. Then, everything started happening very quickly, and my car was delivered very soon after this.

I had queried with BMW SA site and have now been informed that as my order is part of a fleet "bulk order" I am not going to get the privilages of seeing my baby being born

Welcome, when did you order and which dealer in Sandton. With your specs, the imminent price increase on 1st April is going to hurt.
