If they start early April as predicted it should be done in few weeks ( end of April ) and no waiting here in US for transport much

So most likely we can collect first week in May

guys I am now fully confused as I thought that production already started in December or at least in January this year...and now I am hearing it starts in April?? According to my dealer the car (HEA) was supposed to arrive in Austria early/middle April, but this would never happen if production really starts in April

You need to understand the difference in between HEA cars and production cars.


HEA means " Handler-Erst-Ausstattung" = Launch cars!

Garage List
2013 X6M  [0.00]
Those HEA cars are basically for dealers to show customers. The Factory determines which equipment they are outfitted with, color, interior, options etc. Not all dealers may get them it depends on the size of the dealer and volume they move. Some dealers may not even get an allocation. Once the HEA cars are in the showroom then the dealer can begin to sell optioned vehicles. Since, in general, the M Comp vehicles are low volume production, once the order is placed it may take some time for them to schedule a production run. Depending what the demand is and if it meets BMW minimum production volume threshold they will more likely campaign produce the model. So I think IMO, realistically, HEA cars arrive, orders placed and put into production Queue for April/May - may not see vehicles at dealer until June, July, August.

For the love of God, I hope youíre wrong about June-August. I want an F95 right focking now..late April-May is tough enough to wait for. Iím almost getting to the point where I wish there was another bad ass SAV that I liked as much so I could just buy it now instead. But thereís just not...and 6 mos from now I might regret that decision.

Don't worry it won't be that late.

I am sitting on needles too. Lol

I know for sure it's April production start and it only takes few weeks to complete. No need to wait for Vessel which means the very first should arrive end off April/ begin off May.
