530e - Just orderd

86 posts in this topic

Contacted BMW Genius this morning hoping to get the VIN number for my OLEV grant application.

They confirmed code 5055 and delivery W/C 10th or 17th.

That means it's been at 5055 for about a week.

Unfortunately they can't provide the VIN number and he told me to contact my dealer for the number.

You shouldn't need the VIN number for OLEV grant for charging point - all they asked from me was for proof I had the car on order.

You are quite right.

I just thought it will save a bit of bother later if I Could get it.

The form says if you don't have it, then you should provide it within 28 days of the delivery by emailing it to them.

I just know I'm going to forget, although I doubt there will be any repercussions.....

All these lucky people with their orders being brought forward as production ramps up - called the dealer today and still week 40 manufacture (week beginning October the 4th) and production code 1100.

 

They must be buying the batteries from Duracell!

 

I am patient by nature.........

your lucky, I cant even call the dealer. I've now just had an email from our leasing dept to say the order has been placed with Pendragon Corporate Sales. The good thing I guess is that I know Pendragon are huge and they hopefully have access to a decent dealer network and thus better build slots....but again, that's more wishful thinking than anything else!

 

Does anyone have any experience of the rear seat entertainment option on the G30?

Mines coming from Sytner, the largest BMW Retailer in the UK...although they've always been good to me during the bad days of Aircon failure.

 

Your's will be Stratstone - don't know what they're like.

BMW Genius have confirmed car status has moved to 5100 Body shop start.

I will probably start bothering them even more to get a feel for how long it takes to move between the upcoming stages.

Good news Farzad. Wish I had my order number - I'm really impressed with BMW Genius and the way you can track the progress. Still hopeful my date will come in a bit...

I really hope so too

It makes no sense at all to have such wildly differing delivery dates for the same car.

All I can think of is something in the options that you have ordered is delaying your delivery.

The other possibility is that the garage has given me the wrong order number.......!

Time will tell.

I'm assuming in a couple of weeks the car will get to the dealer, then I will know for sure !

 

Yes, I've found BMW Genius to be really helpful, although they have limited information at their disposal.

I don't now how far the dealer that Pendragon uses is form you, but popping in one week-day might help you get your order number......just clutching at straws...

Just checked with BMW Genius and the status hasn't changed for a week.

So not surprisingly, they have added another week to the delivery schedule.

well I've just had an update and my dates moved...unfortunately the wrong way. Now looking at Stock date of 03/01/2018 but likely looking at end of Jan I reckon. Bit disappointed really as you would think BMW could cope a little better with an increase in demand for a certain model. I know uptake of PHEV's has been underestimated but this will be 6 months. If it drags into Feb then I might as weel wait until March and get an 18 plater!

 

I'm hoping still that once the build slot is confirmed then the date might come in again.

I'm not sure whats going on, but my car has been stuck on 5500 for about two weeks now.

The delivery was quoted as Week 37, then that got changed to week 38 at the end of last week, and yesterday they changed it to week 39.

Still a lot quicker than yours, so I shouldn't be complaining but I don't understand why they would finish building a car and then just have it sat in their compound for so long.

I don't suppose you are able to use the updated delivery information to try and get the BMW order number from them ?

no, all I have on our internal system is that the date has moved back because as yet the build slot is unconfirmed. I've asked again but unlikely that I will get anything.

Looks like Germany is going off diesel cars. I bet they cannot cope with hybrid demand. Would be good to know lead time on 530d. I bet you can have one in 2 weeks.

I'd imagine their grid is far more capable than ours but it would be interesting to know.

Oh well, it was worth a try Hybrid.

Fingers crossed.

My lease companies internal system still shows no order has been placed....!!

After a couple of weeks or so of no change, looks like there is at last progress on the status.

Today BMW Genius confirmed code 9000 this morning.

They expect the car will be with the dealer during week 39, so within a couple of weeks.

I don't think I've seen one yet on my journeys.

There seems to be very few of them about.

I drove 900mi this week end and only saw one. Either the factory is not supplying the UK or BMW UK is having a dreadful time. Last time when the f10 was release, the m4 was full of 520d m sport within 3 months.

Must say I've only seen a handful of G30's around, of which 90% have been 520d's with the standard LED headlights!

 

The Adaptive LED's really bring the G30 to life IMO.

I've managed to get a BMW order number simply by a chance call to pendragon, the dealer network used is Stratstone but I see little point in calling them now.

 

BMW Genius have quoted week 51 for build and estimated delivery date of the 1st week in Jan to the dealer. It will be end of Jan before I get the car so I'm tempted to wait until March and get it registered as an 18 plate. That will be nearly 8 months to wait for a new car though. It seems ridiculous.

Although the delivery sucks, it's good that you have the order number and can now bypass 3rd parties and talk directly with BMW.

When mine was at 1100, they originally said delivery of 01/01/2019.

Just for my amusement, I went on line and asked them every couple of weeks, and then all of a sudden the delivery got brought forward by 3 month.

So fingers crossed you will have a similar experience.

Just like you, if delivery was going to be early next year, I was all set to tell them to delay registering the car until March 1st.
