Don't think any uk cars come from SA?
Not sure, I know all RHD 3 series E46 of certain years were made in SA.

Reading the US threads on delivery, it seems SA are making some 3 Series for the US. Not every car going to the US is SA made, but these days the majors are steering away from 1 type car production lines. So your car could be made in any of the assembly plants, subject to local orders and demand.

I do hope mine is made in Germany.

Why did you sell your 330d in such a hurry? Why didnt you wait until a time near when the new one came.

Because I stupidly believed the 8 weeks lead time they gave me when I ordered...this was then to be confirmed a week after. As the factory was shut its taken them this long to get a date.

I thought my 330d would take a while sell (as they often do struggle), I guess overall this is still fine, as I didnt want to be stuck with two cars!

Yeah dont blame you trying to sell it early I guess. You would have thought 8 weeks would be a sensible time to start to advertise and sell it - just in time to pick up the new one. Shame the new one is now delayed.

Hi

I'm sure they said that F10 roll out was before the F30, September time from memory, but could be wrong. Best thing would be to ask a dealer.

Yeah, i am really thinking if I should threaten to cancel my order as they mislead my by about 100% on the timescales.

You never know, that may speed things up OR just leave me with no car at all

if they did manage to get the car earlier....would i car about the tweaked Nav? Probably not!
