Petrol demand caught dealers unawares.

UK delays have been due to huge demand for petrol models.

You can get a diesel F20 within 4-6 weeks and some dealers even have stock cars on display. However no one anticipated the huge demand for the 116i which by far has the longest wait of 8-10 weeks.

I have noticed that more F20s are being specked with the auto, satnav and vis pack than on the outgoing model which means greater profit margins for BMW, and weaker residuals in 3 years time for those with lighter specs.

Time to spec your car carefully.
Here are some suggestions: feel free to add comments in that thread.
