Production number and bmwusa

Hey guys,
Im brand new to this forum. I just placed an order for a 2013 bmw 335i. My CA gave me my production right away : ). Ok so i setup my bmwusa owners website and entered my production number. My car showed up, but the picture of the car was for a silver color 335 as opposed to the alpine white i ordered. Am i being ridiculous by asking if that matters?
Is it supposed to show a white 335? Thanks guys

dont worry, as long as its the right color on your vehicle inquiry report, it will be fine, just takes the system a while to update.

Don't worry. Your car is not in the system yet so it just show a generic picture. After a couple of days the info will be updated.

Garage List
Your car was probably updated from an existing order. Most likely in 112 status. So the car it was updated from was likely silver. The site is notoriously slow to update. Don't worry about it.

Just make sure you get a printed copy of the vehicle inquiry report showing your production and all options you requested. Helps to eliminate an ordering error.

Also is your car 133Q (Germany) or 133T (SA) build? If its 133T you'll be waiting an additional 3-6 weeks for your car as compared to a German build.
