Looking like September deliveries are more likely now for the U.S. market. Even with that timing, one would think orders would need to be placed in June to get built and arrive here in September. I wish we had someone from BMWUSA contributing to this blog that could provide more info on the timing of U.S. ordering.

See the story in this link from BMWblog:
Hopefully that means they can stop being cagey about order slots and deliveries now that the cat is out of the bag. I appreciate the "selling you the future/new experience" angle but, honestly, I just want to drive down to the dealership, write a check, and drive off. I have the sneaking suspicion it's going to be more like an Apple launch day where people are clapping for you as you walk out. I guess I'm "weird" in that I buy cars for myself rather than any desire to impress or show off to other people, so a "delivery event" seems a little pretentious/ostentatious for me. But as long as the theatrics end with me buying a car, I guess I'm game.
