Goes into stock week 38 (2 weeks from now) and I think that I'll probably get it a week after that. So in about 3 weeks.

But your dealer should be able to tell you when the new iDrive is being fitted (I assume that you mean the new iDrive software). Last reports said week 36 build (last week) in the UK.

If you are looking at it, I also heard that the new multifunctional information display and HUD are now available together from week 36 build.

I believe so. If your dealer knows nothing about this I suggest that you change dealer

Please note change in signature! It looks like I won't get my new car until the beginning of November and as I am on holiday that means I won't see it until nearly mid-November

My car was ordered at the end of May but my dealer tells me that anyone ordering this week would get delivery only a week after mine He sure knows how to make me feel better.

Bad luck, must be very annoying!
I ordered yesterday and was told early December delivery. But that's just words, we shall see how it actually works out.

Apparently it's all my fault because I insisted on the new iDrive system......

But that still doesn't explain why it then moved from September to November.......

But the last laugh might be mine as I might have to cancel the order in the next few weeks as I have been offered a transfer to the US. I pity the dealer his lost commission on my 60k order

Hi
New iDrive and HUD? What are the features? I ordered my wife a car with nearly every toy you can think of. It's down as a week 43 car so hopefully all will be up to date.

Also, does anyone know if the Night Vision has improved? Can I use recognition on the HUD with sat nav on the display?

Thanks,
Sam

See http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=706426 for changes. The HUD became full colour earlier in the year and I'm not aware of any other changes apart from you can now apparently have both the HUD and MFID together.
