Track My BMW Question

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Good afternoon all!

So I'm a newbie to this forum and am anxiously awaiting a new BMW 435i coupe that just finished being built (tracked that via the BMW website). I bought through the BMW Military Sales Program (a great deal).

That said, all the options, etc are listed correctly, but the only thing not listed are the 19-in 442M light alloy wheels that I added. Do those get added during the "finishing touches" part of the tracking process? The option was on my BMW order form so it should be included, but wasn't sure how this worked. What else occurs during the "finishing touches"?

Thanks in advance and I'll post pics of the car once I receive it!

And yes, I will use premium gas in my car!

I'm a noob too and waiting for a 340 that's on a Ship. I can't answer your question but I will also be using Premium.

Your dealer should be able to confirm your build. Fortunately, if the car shows up with the wrong wheels, it's a relatively easy fix (as opposed to most other factory options).

The waiting is the hardest part. Good luck.

I have a 340 on the way and it does list the 442 wheels as a selected option when I use the tracking feature on bmwusa site. I would check with your CA.

Thanks for the info.

I just called and talked to a BMW rep and she looked it up and on her computer she did have the 442 wheels listed. She said their computer system screen is more detailed than what you see on the web tracking tool and sometimes things may not show up. At least it's there and I'm happy now!

Thanks for all the help!

Yes -- the online tracking tool is notorious for being inaccurate.

Once you have your VIN you can also check your build here:

On my build the option that shows the 442M wheels is: 2PL

Quick tip: the site is broken, or was 2 months ago when my car was built and shipped. I had it and it was shown as being shipped.

It's easiest just to call the phone number and then enter your production number. Then you can preprogram this to your phone

It's accurate now I believe. Has been for me so far since I started tracking January first. The automated phone line is a tad bit quicker by a few hours from what I've noticed. The actual Bmw people were never able to give more information than the site and automated line combined.

I had the same question when I ordered. The website had the wheels in the picture but it wasn't listed. I confirmed with my CS they were indeed part of the package and bimmer.work did the same
