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!
Ouch! I hope they make looking at the fuel tank a priority since it got media attention and everything else passes so it can be released as quick as possible

Mine's finally on the way

Got confirmation this morning that my blue/PI/turbine wheels is on the car carrier and on the way. Due CA about 1/9 and thus, assume delivery about 1/12-13. I'm assuming the factory dealt with the fuel tank issue during the December build and final QC process. Thus, minimal delays on this end.

So in a very fortunate event I was going to get an early XMAS present today - however, the car that arrived was a white I8 that belongs to somebody else. So if any of you has been expecting a white one for this weekend and it is being delayed, it may have been in Chicago today

I ordered mine around August 6th, but it was already a build car. After a month it shipped. I was able to track the vehicle while on the boat from Germany. That was cool. At one point I was on a cruise in the Carribean and so was my new i8! lol It got through Panama Canal and hit the port in LA area first week of November. There it sat due to the fuel tank issue. Glad it got taken care of right there though. Car got to dealership right after Thanksgiving and I flew out from Florida to Arizona to officially sign for the car appropriately on ..... yup, the 8th! I had it in Vegas and then back to Arizona before it got onto a trailer on the 14th. They got it to me 6 days later. Hit my garage last night in Naples Florida.

Dealership - Chapman in Chandler, twenty star delaership!!! Ask for Reneta.

just received allocation

got an unexpected call from the dealer 3 days ago. I was 5 or 6 on their list, but the people ahead of me were not ready to order. So I picked my colors and got it into the production queue within 24 hours. They are quoting 8-12 weeks from now to deliver. Excited!

2015 Pricing Guide

Don't know if this has been already posted elsewhere, but here is the updated pricing guide for MY2015. The base price went up $800 and the pricing of the worlds stayed the same as 2014. In a quick glance at the standard equipment list, the one thing I see was added is Comfort Access keyless entry.

Since the door locks are controlled by the remote to open and close, you'd think it would just be a sensor if not just programming. But the question is why did BMW leave it out of the U.S. vehicles. Strange.

I hope BMW hears us on this issue as while happy we were the early risk takers. The key should also not be forgotten. But maybe the CA and the key cover the $800 price increase, hope not.

The "Build Your Own" feature on the www.bmwusa.com site has been down for the last two days for the i3 and the i8.

It will be interesting to see not only when it's back up but prices, options and any other changes for US models.

Still huge mark-ups?

Must still be true. After all, it's on the internet.

It should take about 45 of the longest days you'll experience to get it. The car first has to get on a ship. You can track it but tracking is a week or so behind. Your dealer and customer service will have a better handle on when it will arrive. Usually to within a day or two.
