M140i Production Delays

Anyone know if there are any production delays for the M140i? More specifically the Shadow Edition.

Mine is still at status 0077 and someone has told me that theirs isn?t due to arrive until Jan/Feb 2018 now.

I was told November when I ordered but then told it would likely be later. I assumed this meant December!

Not heard of anything, maybe there is a supply shortage from VW on the shitty new indicator and wiper stalks

There are delays across the 40i engine models. However with your car at 0077 status, sounds like your dealer has no allocation for this model

It?s been over 2 weeks now. When should they receive allocation?

Your dealer will have most of their Q4 allocation already on order, if they had M140i’s on order I would have expected them to spec amend one for you. What spec have you ordered?

It was 1100, haven't checked this week as I'm not expecting it to go to 1200 until next week really, but I'll pester Genius in the morning I think.

Every dealer works on the same margin/factory support, but I hear what you say

M140i's are available, just depends on spec requirements. Pre Reg cars also very good news considering they get new car finance rates.

Seeing your other post, that makes sense. It'll be worth waiting for

What's the rules with 'new car rates' and delivery miles cars?
