From Build To Dealer

Anyone have first hand experience of how long a BM takes, from build completion to the dealer?

It turns out the dealer idea of "built" is only that it's "painted"

So in other words, "not even started"

What have you ordered?

M3 Coupe, with delivery date of mid/late August

Dealer told me last Monday the car was "built". when I asked him for a more up to date delivery date, so I could put things in place this end. he now just claims it's "painted" and we are still looking at late August, so from what he's saying. It takes a month from painting

Creepy, if you dont mind could you pm me the deal and spec you got. I am really tempted by a new M3 and if I remember you deal sounded pretty good.

I believe all new M3s from August get delivered to my house for the running in period. You can come and collect in December.

I reckon I must have missed a bit. Post up the spec, Del, if not the price!

Folding mirrors

Competition pack

The Comp pack was an eleventh hour add-on. I really wanted the 259 wheels again

BMW were throwing 7800 at the deal and in some cases the DCT was a free upgrade. Doing the numbers, the car will cost me less PM than owning over the same period.Plus I don't have to worry about residuals in two years time.
