5 months delivery. A record?

So I ordered my 530d at the end of May and after multiple delivery promises my dealer now says it will be delivered Week 45 (w/c 4th November) which makes it over 5 months from order This is a UK delivery so no long boat trips. Can anyone beat this?

I don't think anyone would even want to compete here :P I once waited for a month for a car that was produced and was even located only a few miles away from my city to be delivered, but nothing as close to your 5 mo...

I was about to get a 328i which was only launched around a month ago in India...diesel versions were available in a month or two depending on what colour you chose but the 328i had a wait-time of 6 months and that too was not a gauranteed commitment...

(for the F30 i mean)

Yikes. Ordered 8/19 and will take delivery 9/25. Can't imagine my frustration in your scenario given my anticipation despite my very short wait.

Took 3 months for my optioned up 328i. Apparently, there was a shortage of N20 engines.

Hooray! Car is ready for delivery NOW!

But..... I go on holiday on Wednesday so I have to delay delivery until the 12th November.

But..... I might have to fly out to Boston on business on the 12th November so will have to delay delivery until the 19th November.

But..... I've been offered a transfer to the US and if goes ahead I might have to cancel the car altogether (dealer has very kindly agreed to accept a 10k cancellation fee on a delivery mileage, fully specced 530d. How generous)

It looks like I'm fated never to drive this car.

I reckon if you speak to BMW UK and explain your situation, they may make you a better offer...worth a phone call at least..???

All change. US deal fallen through

But the good news is they are delivering my spanking brand new, almost fully loaded F10 530D tomorrow afternoon

Bad news is I have to fly out to India at the weekend so won't have much time to play with my new toy until i get back
