Ordered my first bimmer.

Hey guys, I ordered my 330i on June 23rd. I am still waiting to be scheduled for production. With the world cup I guess that will take a while.

My setup is:

Sparkling Graphite Metallic w/ Terra Interior + Burl Walnut Wood
6-Speed Automatic w/ Steptronic
Sport Package
Premium Package
On-Board Navigational System

You are about 2 weeks behind me. I ordered on 6/10 and was not scheduled for production for 7-10 days, production started 6/21 and ended 6/28, and now I'm awaiting carrier. Add about 2 weeks to those dates and that should give you some idea of time frames. FWIW, I am hoping for delivery around 7/28 or 7/29... so I'd guess around 8/10 for you.

My time frames are educated guesses based on what I've seen from others. Things do seem to be taking a little longer right now than just a couple of months ago, though, so maybe the World Cup is indeed affecting delivery times.

I like your choice of colors.

So will you.

forcephotography >> Hm, should've been customary as soon as they order for you to get a production number, at least that's what I read and received when I placed my order.

I just checked today and my status has changed to in production or scheduled for production. So I got the vin number now too. Yeah!

I think I am getting somewhat crappy service because the guy I am dealing with is very busy and I did most of my negotiating with him over the phone and then just walked in to make the order. Hopefully the order is placed etc..

I would contact the sales manager. Busy or not, you shouldn't be getting crappy service. I placed my order on a Thursday evening, and my CA called me on Friday morning to give me the production number.

I took these shots real quick and didn't have great lighting. I will definitely take more pics after I get some tints and blacklines.
