How long time did it take from the car was produced until you got it?

Hi Guys
I ordered the car the 28th of February, it went into production the 7th of March. But I haven't heard from BMW yet. How long time did it take for your car to arrive.

I live in Copenhagen - and it's not that far away from Regensburg

Ordered in January, production in May, delivery June 30th (because of new tax law per July 1st which saves me 5% on income taxes)

8 weeks for Petrol models

Ordered early-June
Car entered production this week.
Told to expect car end-July.
There is a shorter wait on diesels, but if you order 116i / 118i you will be waiting for 8 weeks

Order: March 3.
Production: April 11.
Car at dealer in Norway: April 30.
Delivery to me: May 12.

About one week after my order, my dealer got an estimate of the delivery week. This turned out to be correct. According to the dealer, it usually is.
Normally I would get the car about 3-4 days after the dealer gets it, but there were some issues with the registration that caused one week of extra delay.

I wish mine was only a few weeks wait. I too have the same issue as firstbmw@24.

I ordered my 125i M Sport on 6th June after some wrangling over price and crap trade in value orignally offered.

I was told on signing and deposit paid that it would be a early July build, so got excited.

Unfortunately BMW has under estimated the demand for the 125i M sport and now I am now informed that the build will now be 1st week of August which means the build + shipping to down under and then delivery to dealership puts it around the first week of October now. Not happy!!!!, but I hope it is worth the wait.

Hey AusF20,

I'm in Brisbane and after a 125i at the moment, if you don't mind me asking what kind of discount (if any) did you get? I looked at an Evoque which is supposed to be in high demand and they immediately started offering discounts (although it looked gorgeous it was sooo slow). Any advice appreciated!
