For F30 orders w/custom spec, production allocation currently is the month after placing order (i.e. order in July production in Sept), the only way u can get production slot for next mth (i.e. July order August production) is to buy cars that BMWHK ordered for stock, & those have fixed spec & colour combos.
According to my sales, factory will only confirm production to BMWHK 2-3 weeks before the actual production slot is allocated. Once ur sales can give u the order number supplied by factory then u're sure of the slot allocated.
