Post 2015 bmw i8 wait list, allocations, ordering etc.

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I'm number 4 on the wait list for my local DC bmw dealer. I'm a bit surprised with the total lack of knowledge regarding allocations, production date, and delivery. After reading in the forums i understand that 2014 i8's are a headache for everyone involved as far as delivery and any information regarding such. I wanted to create this thread for anyone to post any information they may have regarding specifically 2015 i8 (not already ordered 2014s).

As of right now the only thing concrete that I have is that BMW:
-has not yet released allocation information to their dealers
-not confirmed that all worlds (giga, pure impulse, tera) will be available for order unlike the 2014 which restricts worlds to mostly pure impulse world and a little of tera world. I personally wanted giga for the white leather interior
-no idea when they would actually be able to start production or delivery (as far as the delership knows)

Now take off forum magic and get me some info!

The wording in the press release when the packages were announced for the US market indicated that Pure Impulse and Tera would likely be the only choices for MY14/15. Whether this changes in light of supply is yet to be seen since other countries already have Black, White, and greyish leather/cloth so those are available if they just allowed them to be ordered. Speaking of the Pure Impulse shortage, that bulletin's text combined with the fact that BMW usually switches model years during the plant break in October, at the latest, combined with how short notice the 2014 models were (Allocations and orders opened on July 2nd with production beginning the next week) means you're probably looking at the end of Oct, beginning of Nov at the earliest for the first 2015 allocations. Good luck. Communication is at a minimum with these cars. I was originally told I would get my car in Feb/Mar a year ago...and I pick it up this week.

We will not know what our allocations for 2015 until about the 1st week of January, if that. Nothing we can do about it, you just have to be patient and wait. Be happy that the car is limited, means it will retain value a ton better than any other bmw you'd buy.

2015 allocation will be based on sales of 6 & 7 series models for each dealer. For 2014's apparently they have run out of a certain leather already, I will try to get the details.

Just heard back from my dealer, He said 2015 allocations are coming in the second quarter of 2015 being april-june. He also said they are still finishing up peoples 2014 orders and that two of the three people ahead of me on the waiting list are for 2014's which they haven't even ordered yet.

i8 allocations are based off of sales numbers on 7-series and i3's. All dependent of quarterly sales numbers

Wrong.

Based on previous quarter 6/7 sales. Has nothing to do with the i3.

Whoever sells the most i3's in each region by years end will receive an extra i8 in Q1. That is the only i3 related information.

Congrats. You will begin checking the MyBMW site soon enough, to get updates on your production. Then shipping schedules and then bugging your dealer more frequently than he might like. It's all part of the fun. Enjoy the ride and welcome to the i8 club. The wait can be painful, but the delivery is a dream.
