"Ordered" F34

Dealer modded one of their production slots to match my specs so when it gets here I can buy it if I like it. Should build next week and get here in late September.

I didn't tick DA+, but I think the one coming in has that, so the cameras would be included.

Thanks! I won't feel like I'm really in the club until I see one in the flesh and put some money down, but I'm at least close!

Well, you probably extensively researched and somewhat committed to buying a new car model that at least in the US is not out on the street yet. That makes you part of the club of future 3GT owners who are waiting for their new baby.

If you like the F34 on pictures, IMO it looks even better in real. I saw the m sport version live at the NYC auto show and it looked stunning.

Great color choice by the way. If I were going to be primarily driving it and didn't already have a car in dark grey, I'd get the F34 with m sport package in mineral grey also.

I did all that except for the commitment. :-)

As indicated at My BMW tracking site? I guess 1st US bound cars get produced before the first ED GTs enter production.

Sounds nice!

I stopped by my local dealer but they don't have any in stock yet. I really want to see one in person. MY F30 lease is up in April and I am thinking GT.

As indicated by email from my dealer. Since I haven't bought it yet I can't track it on the site.

That makes sense. For some reason I keep thinking you bought the car already. It shows how excited I am about getting this car.

In order to get to the dealer by the end of September it probably needs to be produced now. For an ED pick up mid September (9/16 earliest date possible) production likely won't begin until that month.

I'd love to, but can't get away from work in September. Gotta ship.

What's your order?

Get production # from dealer. Visit https://www.bmwusa.com/Secured/Conte.../Register.aspx

Create an account. Add the production # and you can track it. Note, this website is several days behind real tracking, also does not provide shipping vessel information. Check with dealer periodically and ask them to check DCS system and provide updated tracking.

Looks like it's going to be on the ship that's sailing 8/24 from Bimmerheaven. That ship is hitting Port Hueneme 9/18, and Tacoma, WA 9/22. Last time my car got off in CA at PH for some reason rather than riding all the way to Tacoma. Not sure if they're still doing that.

Anyway, I'm a little more than a month away from seeing it.
