Yea that sounds about right. It usually takes around 2 -3 months after production starts for it to be delivered. At least your car will arrive near the end of winter, so you can enjoy it without worrying about winter.

Hey banana chipz I live downtown but went to Serpa as my brother works for the owner in his Mazda dealership in Richmond hill and I have bought around 5 cars from him.

Welcome cultivate. Can't wait for mine. Did you get a Vin number from your dealership when you ordered it?

Once you get a VIN, you can track your car:
  • To verify its what you ordered plug in your VIN here: http://www.bmwvin.com/. It should show your options etc...
  • you can call the BMW NA automated number - (1-800) 831-1117. Its a USA number but it worked for me. It will tell you where in the production your car is.
  • Once its in transit, track it using this site: https://att.2wglobal.com/gstattweb/o...uickSearchPage For cargo ID, use the last 7 digits of the VIN. Click the "Track" button below.
  • Once you find out the ship, you can track the ship by GPS here: http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/ and you can search by vessel etc. Note that when it crosses the Atlantic, you will lose sight of the ship.
  • Once it reaches port ( Halifax ), I did not know how to track it by rail and then truck transport to the dealer. It took just under 10 days for the car to be shipped to the dealer and the dealer to have it prepped for delivery to me.

Good luck and of course, enjoy it when you get it! Also don't be super paranoid of the problems posted here. It is not representative. I take it as checklist of things to watch out for during delivery, and I take the point of view of getting things fixed at the dealer as GOOD. It means I have things shaken out and fixed BEFORE the warranty is up.

Here are some supplimentary sites to waste your time on...

Thanks seagull, really useful - especially as a tick list before I sign off the vehicle. Is it normal for them to update all the software again at the dealership?

Thanks Seagull...looks like I have to wait till Feb to get a VIN number. Supposedly productions starts then and I cant get a VIN number until then. Not sure if this is true but this is what I was told by the dealership.

I will definitely do a check based on what I have read on here. It is amazing how much information there is.

Cant wait for the car...going to be a long 4 months

I don't know if they updated mine, but I asked them to make sure it was the latest, and when I got it, they said it was.

Some checklist items, heard earlier on the board but was likely fixed due to better manufacturing processes as production ramped up:
  • Steering Wheel Vibration
  • Wind noise - check your exterior window seals
  • Loose trunk light - open close it a few times
  • Windows/Sun Roof - open close it a few times
  • Heated seats - make sure both work
  • Lumbar suppoort and seat "wings" - make sure both work
  • Remeber to turn on your companss mirror if they didn't - see manual
  • Can't remember what else now...

From what the salesmen said ( all the different ones I went to ) actual production will take something like 4 days. I'm not sure when your VIN gets assigned, but before I knew it, mine was on the boat. All that time before that is being in line I guess ( and them prepping the pipeline of parts? )
