Delivery Times Question

I have been reading this forum for sometime pre ordering my new 520d.
I note that the average delivery times are 6 - 8 weeks.

I ordered the vehicle on a lease/buy through my employers, they use Alphabet. From what I understand the order went through end July or begining of August. The estimated delivery date was 14th September.

My question is, I had a missed call today from the dealer saying they want to arrange delivery! Surely this can't be right.
Does anyone think this is suspicious?

I will call them in the morning and see what they say.

Suspicious how? If the car they're supplying matches your order and is only delivery miles what's the problem?
It would be a coincidence if they have something lying around that exactly matches your order.

Really depends what you ordered .... what options etc ..... Alphabet may have found a stock vehicle ..... but as has been said if its what you ordered I'd say youve had a result getting it early

Update. Took 3 calls before someone got back to me from the dealer. They couldn't explain the call I had and confirmed my eta of 14th September.

Had a call this morning with a collection date 13th so a day early

Feeling excited and a bit nervous to be honest.
