Well that's just pants. Is there anything unusual about your order?

What's odd is that it's gone from 1200 back to 1100?!

Here you go then:-
  • 440i GC LCI in Alpine White
  • Black Dakota interior with blue stitching, Carbon aluminum trim
  • M Sport Plus package
  • Icon Adaptive LED lights
  • Adaptive M Sport Suspension
  • Folding exterior mirrors
  • Digital cockpit
  • Speed limit display
  • Extended storage

Nothing out of the ordinary there - unless they're running out of B58 engines?!

Genius today said the new production date might be a system error, although I think he was clutching at straws for an explanation as to why it'd gone from 1200 back to 1100
Fortunately the part ex price for my F31 is fixed in the contract paperwork so my deal is unaffected by any delays
That said, if there's another delay beyond this one, I might well cancel and keep my F31 330D for another year. Have just done a 2,000 mile holiday trip in France and had forgotten just what a good car it is

The connection between Ischemic and TodmordenLad and (possibly Rusty) is the carbon trim which I don't have. I wonder if that's it?

Possibly it's worrying that it isn't just one person saying there build date has been pushed back.

Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone.

That's interesting. If my delay were to extend beyond 5 weeks, I could live without the digital cockpit tbh, a nice to have for me, not an essential. I'll see what my dealer says in the morning
