Sport auto has nothing to do with delay as its the same equipment as the 8at just with different software and paddles. my guess is the dealer sold you a car and didn't have allocation when you bought it. 335 allocation slots are harder to come by versus 328s and it would seem the dealer is trying to cover their a$$ on this one. Until the status bar shows its in production, you have quite few weeks left unfortunately.
Ask the dealer when the allocation date is and see what they say. Then contact other dealers to see if they have availability any sooner.
I know but my car is getting built from Germany that's why this is so weird ! I also called bmw na and they knew as much as I did and they said to talk to m dealer
