I ordered one on Oct. 3. It was produced on Nov. 12. It should arrive in Colorado around Dec. 18. Being in the UK, your shipping time will be shorter.

I wish that I could say that for my garage ...more snow predicted for this week; garage SPACE is at a premium.

How do you guys get access to production lists?

In Aus we just get told when the dealer expects stock

Mine in red with wire wheels, cruise control and dynamic suspension pack was ordered last Tues. Due 14 Dec -hopefully. I'd like to get the first service done before Xmas

We bug the hell out of our dealer. The sales critter will look up the status of our order and tell us just to get us to go away for a while. Pretty simple, actually.

Even then, the info is not what's going to happen, it's what already has happened. I ordered a bike the end of March. I was finally told in the middle of May that BMW said the bike was "in production". Then nothing until the middle of June when I knew that the bike had been shipped and the name of the ship the bike was on. In the beginning of July the dealer told me that they had been invoiced; delivery was assumed to be about a week later. I picked up the bike about 3 1/2 months after placing the order.

That was for a '13 model just after the bike started hitting the dealer showrooms here in the US. I assume the timing is different today.

I was at the dealer on Sunday, and mine was ordered last week with the dealer, the order went on the BMW system, and showing delivery to the dealer as week 51 or 52. I have a feeling it may arrive earlier though.

LOL still that's very good. All mine told me was there was one red with cruise, dynamic suspension and wire wheels ordered by the shop and due to land about 10 Dec. It was not yet sold so I put a deposit on it to make it mine. He was working from a faxed, paper inventory - not very high tech :-)

He's told me they are the "expected" dates and they as the dealer have no control over them (so basically don't bug him till it's due)

On in as far as it was a pre-order by the shop and I've paid a deposit. If this one wasn't available I'd have been waiting for late Jan or maybe Feb (which is 3 to 3 1/2 months).
Cheers
