And was told it's standard.

Why so long? Where are you located?

I am trying to time a mid-to-late June delivery to time BMW waiving the last 3 payments on my current lease with Pull Ahead program. My CA is saying April order could get it there by then, should I be concerned?

Extra month or so for Tanzanite. You should be able to get a standard color delivered by June if you order by April.

So, working with my local dealership, we put in an order thinking my slot would be weeks out, then we went to go make changes and the order already went into production. (440xi).
So, we're creating a new one and finding some of the options aren't available or working in the configurator, like one of the new wheel types. So, waiting for them to put the new order in, but, it seems to take forever for the dealerships to learn why certain configurations aren't working. Hoping my order goes in very soon.

Jeff

EDIT: Finally ordered. Since folks were asking I've attached images of my order which should go into production next week. Note, port options to be added:
- M Sport Power & Sound
- M Carbon trunk spoiler
- Carbon interior 3 piece kit w/ alcantara detail
- Carbon center console piece
- Carbon tail pipe tips

When I get the car, going to tint the windows and put black M wheels. Really excited for the car, it is already named 'White Walker'.

The UK website now has the LCI in the configurator.

My car is scheduled to arrive at the end of March. I had forgotten just how excruciating the wait is!

On a slightly different note, I've seen some comments regarding how disappointing the F30 LCI LED headlights are. I don't suppose if anyone knows that the 4 series is being equipped with the same setup? I've not upgraded to the adaptive ones so hoping that's not a mistake! It's probably too early to know as the cars haven't yet arrived st the dealers.

I think you should seriously reconsider. Rememeber those ugly low beams you sometimes notice on LCI 3 series? That's the regular LED and 4 series get exactly the same ones as 3! If you want those hexagonal LED and the upper beam, you need go adaptive. I know right? It messed up my plan as well, i was quite happy staying with Xenons. But damn, those hex lights as too hot!!! I think it's "a must" on a car in this range.

I thought the hexagonal DRL's were part of the LCI and all models got it, and not just those with adaptive LED's, but you can see how they change on the configurator. Unfortunately it's too late for my order, and in any case, I don't want to pay the extra £1200 for adaptives.

I'm guessing the standard LED's won't be any worse than the halogen's. The LED fog light's might come in handy if the headlight's need a boost.

I agree, 1200 is a lot to pay for that. Especially if it doesn't mean that much to you.

But just in case, as you ordered LCI, it means you did it recently, like me. Then i need to tell you that you can still change your mind about the equipment (not the engine). BMW has a 2-stage ordering system. First, the dealer orders a monthly quote of series and engine types, this gives you a production week. Then you usually have a few weeks left to decide on the equipment. For example, my dealer put the rest in the system only yesterday, but production week stays. Now, no matter what, the ordering system stay open for few more week before the factory locks it down - usually about two weeks before production starts. I know, because i kept changing my mind with my older orders and the dealer went into the system to correct it.

So, if you feel at least a bit unsure, pay a visit to your dealer, do the math and make the final call. You really don't want to regret it later

Yeah, so I need some clarification on the headlight comment. I thought all cars came with the same LED headlights. Are you staying the Standard lights on a 440 would be halogens? There's no way they would downgrade even from the originally standard xenons, right?

From the configurator, it looks to be like a combination between LED and the Bi-Xenon lights. What I am sure of is that they won't downgrade the equipment to halogen.

according to this, the LED lights look almost the same. it's only the adaptive functions that aren't present. imo the standard LED headlights look fine.
