I can't find the article you linked to. Is this only for UK customers?

Telephone details are for UK customers only but i presume non-UK customers can enquire and book directly with their local BMW dealer.

It may not be available immediately (in UK, only X5/X6 available now, other models being added over 8 weeks i presume to avoid dealers being swamped with calls) but there should be a fix in due course.
