^^ Congrats on the car and thanks for the initial thoughts...makes me excited for all those features on mine. I got the HK instead of the BW so I’m happy to hear you like it.

I’m waiting for an allocation for my 40i...but reading this thread/others is making the wait a little less painful.

This worked for me.

I pretend I am going to get another BMW I never considered in my life. Like the M8 or the M4 or pick something similar like the 2021 M4 and start doing your research and create a build journal as if you are going to buy it. May be even go in for a test drive or two in the weekends. Time flies and it's a better way to keep your mind off the car entering production any day.

it finally moved! status has been 'order received' and today it says 'scheduled for production'. So how long is the wait based on this status? or is it still just as variable as 'order received'?

It took about 10 days for mine to move from 112 where you are to 150.

where is the list of these codes? once it moves to production then what happens, like how quickly do they build it and stuff, or can it meander at that stage as well?

There is a topic somewhere with all of these codes. Just google and you will find it, I think it is on the m3/4 forums if I remember right. Mine moved in one day or even in the same day from status 111 (Order accepted) to 112 (Scheduled for production) and after another 10 days on December 12th to status 150 (Production begins) but I haven't seen any move since. Now of course it was also the fact that the production was down from before Christmas (actually since 12/22/2019) they will restart production tomorrow. Anyway, mine is set to finish production on January 6th but I don't have any individual options that delay the order.

I don't, I just see on my garage the status and I translate it into the number. The dealer for example on the order build had it mentioned as "111 - Order accepted at".

Anyway, below is the topic that I was talking about.

Unfortunately for you, yes. Look in the Ordering Guide from the topic that I will put below and you will see it as "Priority 1" and as far as I remember those "Priority 1" options are considered Individual by BMW.

@edit: the Extended one seems that is not, the Full Merino is a "Priority 1". Anyway, just check the Ordering Guide and you will see.

From my understanding googling/reading through the results is that Priority 1 options mean that those options can only be added to “Priority 1 Orders” aka orders for customers. Dealers cannot add those options to dealer/lot builds.

The build delay is tied to the “Individual” options in the ordering guide.

Many thanks. This site was very informative regarding tracking the production process.

For the sake of those ordering those cars optioned with "Priority 1" options I hope you are right. I will try to get in touch with my guy and ask him about this.

that's very interesting. I've always wondered why i see these high msrp builds at my local dealership but it has all these crap options. i've never seen one with the acoustic glass etc. I didn't know that dealers were limited in their lot build options.

He is correct. Priority one options, unless due to a specific part shortage, do not delay the order. They are just restricted to "Customer Sold" cars. Individual options, don't necessarily delay a build, but frequently do, and they do lock in build specs earlier and prevent changes from being made unless you want your build week pushed out.

Once mine was scheduled for production I found the tracker and genius line to be pretty spot on. You should be able to call and get a firm production date.
