Status has changed to 5055 (confirmed by production control??) Actual build week is 16 Oct and should be at the dealership for 1st Nov? That is pretty quick from Assembly line to Dealership, is that how it has worked for all as well?

A similar thing happened to me. At the end of Friday I was 5290 Date Change but by the end of Monday I was 5400 Assembly Start.

Given that 5290 comes after 5270 Paintshop Complete I can only assume that mine went through the paint shop on Friday and into main assembly on Monday. That might account for the Date Change code as it's slipped into a different build week.

I suspect there's no hard and fast rules. If it helps, I was 1200 on the 14th of September when I asked Genius, 5055 Confirmed by Production Control on the 27th September and 5400 Assembly Start on the 9th of October.

I'm debating should I pester Genius tonight or leave them be, I'm literally starting to remember the names now. I have been messaging them every other day, still the same message "it's left the plant, will be at the dealership w/c 22nd"

Has your dealership have you a collection date yet?

I told myself I'd stop after reaching 9000 - but like the addict just one more time...

Anyway, I've reached 9605 Pre EU Port of Exit and delivery is week commencing 23 October.

That's the last time. Honest!

Itís in the country now, due at the dealers 23rd but my sales guy thinks it could be with them middle of next week. Based on recent deliveries.

Number plate chosen

Pick up will depend on when it can be taxed without losing any weeks, so thinking 25th -27th.

Well if you're at sea today and I was at port of exit yesterday then hopefully I've not missed the boat.

Good evening all, I have been watching some of the posts over the last few weeks but am now a new member to the forum after just placing order for my first BMW after years of VAG cars (Seat Leon FR & Cupra and latest VW Golf GTD).

I was told I am probably looking at around 12 weeks for a factory build of a 335d tourer with xdrive and a number of other options.

I am sure that it varies from one model to another but just wondered if anybody can give a more realistic idea based on experience.
Cheers in advance guys...

Have you got your official order number? If so then start pestering Genius for your build status. Hope the wait's not too long.

Also, congrats - what a great first BMW.

12 weeks sounds about right for a factory order
