550i Has Been Ordered!

Hello,

I placed the order for my new 550i today. After a couple weeks of reading posts here in the forum and getting a lot of great advice from people I have to say thanks to everyone that helped. Here is my build:

Carbon Black Metallic
Aluminum Hexagon Trim
Black Dakota Leather
M-Sport
Dynamic Handling Package
Convenience Package
Executive Package
Luxury Seating Package
Driver Assistance Package
Sport Auto Transmission
B&O Audio
Power Rear Sunshade
Heated Seats

Some of you might think I went too far on the build but I am happy with the selections. This might be my only opportunity to drive a car like this and wanted to make sure I really enjoy the next 3 years. I had a hard time picking the color between Titanium Silver and Carbon Black but having owned silver a couple times in the past I decided to change it up here, I hope I don't regret it

Thanks again for all the feedback, I can't wait to drive this in a couple months!

Congrats! Those were colors on my list, but I ended up with imperial blue. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

New to the site but getting ready to order my BMW M SPORT 550i RWD the same options it seem very popluar. I have just 2 questions.The saleman told me I need to place my order before May of this year; at that time, I will then be able to pickup my car in October; will my car be the 2013 or 2014? I heard the model year of BMW ends in the month of June. The other question is, can I still have my car delivery to spartanburg plant and take the performance course?

First, welcome to the forum! I'm also new here but found a lot of helpful people that posted here that helped me through all the decisions.

What I was told when I ordered my car this week is I could basically order a 2013 model through May as well. July is when the 2014 models can be ordered which means if you are doing US delivery your looking at a couple months after that to get your car. If you are ordering in May unless you are requesting a pickup that late I wouldn't see why you would need to wait until October to pick the car up. Maybe my rep was wrong but that's what I was told.

I am not familiar with the performance center delivery but there shouldn't be any reason why you can't have the car delivered there as part of your order. I'd check the forums here and search for a performance delivery thread or post a new thread with the specific questions you have.

Good luck!
Craig

Thanks! I just noticed today that the car is out of production - I can't wait to get it!
