I am sure he's locked into a military satellite instead to track down the transporter.

I have been quoted BW47 and delivery week commencing the 10th December since I placed the order approx 13 to 14 weeks ago.

Still quoted the same today.

I have been in a rented astra for the last 8 weeks with a hi-fi that sounds like I have left my coat over the speakers.

Similar to the standard system in the F30 then?

My dealer wants to register the car this month, even if they don't have it ready for me to collect which doesn't seem right to me!

That does not compute to me, they can't do that.

Assuming we're talking about a long period of time, they can only do that with your permission, otherwise they're effectively selling you a used car. Any time a dealer wants to pre-reg a car, they do it in their own name, or more dodgy dealers do it in the names of their employees. The car is immediately second hand then. When you come to sell the car, you'll be selling a 11/12 car instead off a 12/12 car and that will affect the value, albeit by a small amount so bugger them and their silly ideas

Now if we're talking a week or so then that's perfectly normal. My car was registered on Friday (last week) because that's when they got the car. I'll get the car a week later

Pleased to hear your car is nearly here

For my info: re the dealer registering the car, when you say that's when "they got it" does that mean the car is actually on their premises then? My dealer is very keen so I'm just interested to know what the usual process is.

Yes, I'm referring to physically on site. Technically, new cars can be registered as soon as they've got he chassis number and the details of the person to whom it'll be registered but any dealer worth their salt will wait for physical stock so they can register the car as close to delivery date as is reasonable to do so
