I just put down a deposit to be placed on the "MSRP" list. I was told that I am first on the "MSRP" list which I guess means anyone who wants to pay over will get theirs before mine. I don't expect more than 2-3 people to get in front of me before my allocation. Wish me luck guys!

Hi,

Mine is now 'At Sea'. Estimated delivery 9th Dec but I'm personally hopeful that it could get here a bit quicker... Either way, not much longer to wait!

Do we have a real handle on how many i8s are coming into the country this year and next? Will the next round of i8s being delivered be 2014 model year cars?

Still at the port since Nov 26th. I think the next ship leaves Dec 4th. BMW i says there are no holds and no explanation of course. Doubting the car will now get here before Christmas

There were 271 reported sales by BMW at the end of October. November numbers should be out any day.

Mine has made it to the dealership and I should be able to handover on Friday. Having a tracker installed so not too bad a turn around. Especially considering that it only left Germany last Friday. But not so great considering build finished on 20 Oct. Nipping in to see it tomorrow so will put some pics up.

I heard about the wait list too. Good for us with early orders, will keep the residuals high.

I went for white with blue accents, PI, Halo interior, comfort access, e-drive sound and W wheels. You?

If you are anything like me then "a little excited" is probably a huge understatement.

As for the PI package, have you heard anything more about what the card entails?

i have asked a few times about the 'card'

no one really seams to know as much as they should considering the cost - even on 'google' = nada

all i know is that we get invited to 'a-list events' - but we have to arrange our own transport and accommodation i.e. private movie showings, pop music etc

I have a Bently, and have lots of similar invites, all sound v cool, but all cost several thousands of pounds to 'attend'

Good. Is it a 2014? When it gets here we can have a meetup. I want to see the blue in the metal. Mine is the boring dark grey (though I do like it).

Dark grey is not boring at all. Mine is on the Oberon which is scheduled to get to the Baltimore VPC on the 13th. Still hoping to get it before Christmas

Cool. I went to my dealer today, as they delivered a white car to the guy just one slot ahead of me. A local, San Diego exotic car guy. I got a ride in it with him and was very impressed, in all of the 10 minutes I had in it! This other buyer already seems to be thinking maybe he should have gone blue!
Mine was supposedly released to the carrier late today, per my dealer.
I'm also considering a new X5M and drove a more pedestrian M-Sport X5 today. Nice units. I had one of the older 4.8iS X5's and liked that, at the time. Not sure if I really need (want!) the full M version, whereas an M-Sport, with Dinan upgrades, should be more than enough for the road.

Arriving at Baltimore today and to the VPC. Barring no problems how long does it usually stay there and then released to carrier for delivery?

Mine took 3 weeks. When it was released to the carrier it was at my dealer in an hour.

The VPC is going to look at the fuel tank. In my case the VPC didn't get around to it for 18 days!
