Allocation issues.

Anyone heard of no current allocations for the X5 M50i? Reached out to a dealer who advised today there are no allocations for building the M50i
anywhere in the country.Seems odd to me, but who knows.

I actually posted this in another thread, but same situation here...although my dealer has one that I am in the process of securing, only to find out TODAY that they have locked it from being modified even though it is still in 112 status...they have been on the phone with BMW today trying to sort out what is going on.

Wow. I ordered an M50i almost 3 weeks ago and haven’t had any movement. Just order received with no confirmed build date. This would explain things.

i didn't hear that there was a shortage of allocations but i did hear they're trying to cram in so much before the end of the year that build weeks are getting pushed out. they may be at/over capacity to deliver by EoY and trying to sort out their production schedule

Certain options lock the build. Your dealer should know this, but most are incompetent, so, your mileage may vary!

It's probably the shortage of roof rails that started this ...

Anything considered individual. Full and possibly extended merino will do it.

According to my dealer, there is a "stop sale" on the M50i. Concerns over potential metal fragments in the oil filter. Before I took del last weekend, they had to complete a SIB, basically oil change/new filter.

Wonder if this would cause a freeze on the allocations...

And as far as certain options locking in a build, my dealer is aware and extended merino is the only one that could be causing the hangup...

I only mentioned it, bc before I ended up deciding on the in stock unit (which ironically I custom ordered anyway--long story), I/we were in search of an allocation and none could be had.

BTW, are we going to have the same garage? And do you ever run into my previous white M3CS down there in TN??

Our dealer in Knoxville only had one M50i allocation in Oct. The vehicle was built the first week of October (week 40). For whatever reason it spent a week in QC and via a VIR (vehicle inquiry report) shows the actual production date is 10/09 even though it entered assembly on 10/01 which a VIN decoder states to be the build date... Anyways, it was delivered to the performance center two weeks prior to delivery. Wonder if this SIB was performed during PDI at the PC? I know the camera SW recall was addressed during QC.

Just texted my CA and he fears the Stop Sale is the cause of our issues, but will know more today.

And looks like it on the garage! Our M50i build is Mineral White with the Black 22". And yes, Bret is actually a friend of mine, so I see it all the time!

Bust Bret that he never wanted to give me a few bucks for the M Driving Cert. I still have it...

I'm hoping that since my order has already been assigned a build week, that it won't be affected by this.

Do you know what status your build is in? My allocation was 112, but then got bumped back to 111 and is stuck there now and can't be modified.
