I half remember my dealer saying something about petrol cars being pushed back due to lower than expected demand whereas the disels are selling well. I guess that's to be expected considering the current economic state of affairs. I'm so excited. Never had a nice car before, currently in a crap 207.

That sounds a bit rubbish.

Surely all customers should be treated as equal?!

If it is the case, it'd certainly make me reconsider bothering to buy a BMW petrol again, if they're just going to shunt us to the back of the queue regardless of how early we order.

I assume they just make cars for different engines on different weeks. Plus maybe because 328i and 335i are so popular in the USA there is a shortage.

I'm waiting until start of the September for my 320d. I've been told my build will begin at the start of August with delivery hopefully w/c 3/9.

Thankfully I'm in no hurry and more than happy to wait for the new plate too

I didn't see the point of waiting for the new plates. I have a private one and they offered me significantly more for my old car.

Thats not bad for a new model. I got 5K off my E90 just under a year ago - but that was of course the outgoing model. Mind, the APR's are quite good for F30's and better than I got last year with mine.

MY M Sport touring 3.0D will arrive for the 1st October time, settled for Beige Leather with Estoril II Blue, all extras including Blue brake upgrade front and rear. Should perform well.

Just ordered 328i MSport in Estoril blue with Coral dakota.

Two litre petrol turbo engine very popular in USA hence the delays.......

Hey! It's not our fault BMW doesn't offer the 320d here. We'd buy it!

Hi mate,

Is that confirmed by BMW UK? Do you have a link? My dealer still seems to think I'm on for an August 28th delivery.


Isn't someone else in this thread earlier saying their M-Sport is arriving mid-July as well?


EDIT, sorry - are you just referring to the 330d?

The touring release date for the UK is 18th September, so no one will get one sooner.

2 days to go before my 320d M Sport hits the dealers, shame it takes 5 days for them to register it and do some "pre-delivery" inspections, as i'm away next week!

Damn, still, will be a nice treat when i get home :-)

You must have got lucky there. Mine is due week 36 which apparently is 3/9/12 onwards so I have 2 months to wait still

Still, it'll be worth it in the end
