My car was delayed more than 3 months (was told 3 months from order, took 6.5 months in the end).

It's just waiting. BMW should put you in a car if you're without transport. All in all it's annoying, but not the end of the world.

That's a bit like hoping your train is late or your plane is cancelled so you can get compo.

I heard there was a Petrol engine shortage because of the diesel fiasco from family members who was looking to place and order.

Starting to look like to be the case with the 3 and 4er diesel finance deals going on.

They did in my case. The sale of my car was scheduled based on their first delivery date, and they ended up accomodating. But it was far from being pleasant. I had the joy of driving a Mini Cooper (not even an S) during that time. It was a huge head turner, but not for the right reasons ahah.

Damn I was more then happy to get my delivery. I feel the pain all of you guys are experiencing. Every single day seems to last forever.

I've always been week 40 build (i.e. this week) and Genius last night was still saying it's going into build this week. All this talk of delays does make me nervous though.
Had confirmation that I've got to 5400 Assembly Start
