As I wrote in another thread, I reached out to the dealer and the sales guy was shocked that I really don't have an allocation! Just a request for one. Sigh. I was angry then, now I just hope before next summer I can get the car. It's really perfect for my niche (more importantly, my wife and I agree).

I'm going to follow up with the dealer this weekend or Monday, but here is excerpt from the last email I received:

"So I checked on the status, and we are NOT underway with the build. We've submitted a request for an allocation, which is what was showing up. I've reached out to ####, the BMW Area Manager to help me expedite the allocation. As it shows for the moment, there are not any M240s being built for the US market at the moment. That said, #### is the man that may be able to help me get this production underway. I've involved the recently appointed new car manager as well, and we will be working with the Area manager to try and get your BMW into production."

Fingers crossed.

I actually do have an allocation (xDrive) for a week 42 build date (October 12-18) so I guess I should feel lucky. My dealer had an allocation for a RWD M240 maybe have your dealer contact Century BMW in Huntsville it might still be here?

According to my sales guy, there was an initial production run of 31 cars that went to the west coast in August, but they weren't custom orders - so some weirdness with the 2 series. He did confirm his dealership should get an allocation on 9/23 (November production), so worst case that's what i'm looking at. Meanwhile, he's looking to see if any existing orders can be altered.

UPDATE: Got my production # . Looks like it'll be an early October production date (week 41 or 42).

Any chance it's a convertible?

Nah...it's a coupe. Went to my trusty mineral grey / coral red combo.
