How did you get this order progress info? Did you ask the dealer for it?

My order went in last Monday and would like something like this to track it as the dealer said I would have the car by the end of June.

Cheers

I got the production codes and their meaning from here: http://f10.5post.com/forums/showpost...82&postcount=1

I then just emailed my dealer pretty much every day or so asking if there was an update- he would just tell me the current production code. and i would update here accordingly

Do you think it is a bit early to ask?

Done the deal late on Saturday 19th May so the order went in last Monday (21st).

Had the order confirmation email from the dealer and he then rang to say the car will be here by the end of June as a guy had placed an order for a 118d Sport and they had been allocated a build slot. His finance then fell through but they retained the slot and because I have chosen the same engine, it was still at the stage for the spec to be changed (from Sport to M Sport) so that's why I am getting it earlier.

Haven't had an estimate build week as yet.

what i would say is, if you dont have a build week and you placed your order at least 1 week ago, then ring and ask if you've got your build week. if he / she says there isnt a build week yet- keep emailing every 3 days for an update. i got my build week the day the order was submitted to BMW.

Next, you want to get in touch approx 15 days before production is due to start (your build week)- as it will goto production scheduled.

At this point, feel free to arrange to hand over your V5 for any car(s) you are part-xing.

After that, just wait until mid-day of the first day of scheduled production and email for an update. i then emailed every day for an update.

Once the car is 'in transit' be prepared for a long wait- as not even the dealer knows whats happening at this point. usually takes. it took 8 days for my car to be consigned to the UK, and a further 7 to be delivered to the dealer.

its JUST like watching a kettle boil- you know you need the end product, but you cannot do anything to help speed it up- and it teases you with what sounds like boiling water (progress). but eventually you get what you asked for. I'm just waiting for the coffee to arrive (DVLA docs) to add to the nice boiling water

I have just emailed him for progress so lets see what he says. If the car is due by the end of June then surely it must be in production now.

My part-ex's tax is due at the end of June too so if the car is delayed I don't really fancy putting anymore tax on it to then have the faff on of claiming it back. Do you think the dealer would take the car off my hands on say 30/06/12 with no tax on even if the F20 hasnt arrived?

I could manage for a few days with just one car.

Not at the moment.

My E81 had a private plate on when it was stolen so I can't put it on a car for 12 months!

wow, that sucks- but at least you get it back

as the car you are part-exing doesn't have a personal plate- there is no reason the dealer shouldn't let you part-ex it now. i.e. they take the car, and give you the cheque.

my dealer was going to let me do this, but then they realised the personal plate needs taking ovff- and this cannot be done cost effectively until the new car is consigned. so had to wait.

ring and ask your dealer.

I will wait until closer the time and then ask the question. Insurance renewal is due this Thursday too (not good timing) so need to sort that. The 26,000F20 is 50 less to insure than my 1500 Focus 1.6 - madness!!

Latest reply from dealer:

It is showing week 24 but I think it will be sooner than that.

When is week 24 and why would it be sooner?

Week 24 is June 11th (http://www.epochconverter.com/date-a...rs-by-year.php)

So I estimate you'll get it on July 4th... It wont move if production has been scheduled.
