I ordered my 530e M Sport earlier October. Original delivery date was early Feb, however it didn't get to the Port of Exit until 3rd Feb.

 

However, as of this morning, its still there!!!!!

 

Not moved status for over 4 weeks.

 

If that's not bad enough no one can tell me what the problem is or when its going to ship. All I get is the delivery date moving backwards week after week.

 

Makes me question if the car is actually built at all!!!!

 

Of course car companies don't tell porkys do they!!!

Are you tracking using your order number and asking BMW Genius for a status updates or are you being updated by the dealer? 

 

Seems odd that it has sat at port of exit (9605) for so long. 

 

I believe these are the most up to date UK Status Codes for the 5 Series built in both Dingolfing or Gertz.

Hope this helps keep us posted.

Tracking with Genius and order number.

 

The dealer has apologised and accepts it’s very unusual, but it’s not their fault.

 

Been in touch with BMW on the phone and they are speaking with their logistics team. That was Friday but no updates yet.

 

Does anyone know which port it is likely to be at in Germany?

Yep assuming it has been built in either Dingolfing or GretZ then it will almost certainly come out of Bremerhaven port and into Southampton - they run daily (M - F ) I believe.

If it’s daily it just doesn’t make sense why it’s still at the port after a month.

 

Getting sick of checking with Genius and getting the same cheery message that’s it’s at the Port of Exit!!

Depending on your dealership's location in the UK it may (northern dealerships ???) come from Cuxhaven into Immingham, I believe the Cuxhaven ships go into Bremerhaven anyway.

 

From Southampton they continue across the pond to the States.....

Did BMW revert on this one?

Quick question. Is there no station artwork for DAB? I know it sounds trivial but if a VW can have it why can't we?

 

What exactly are you expecting? 

 

Mine shows (for example) the Radio 2 logo OK.

That's what I was expecting. Mine doesn't show that, it's just grey and says, music. Strange.

Mine shows a drum kit when on Planet Rock, and I think a comfy chair for the east listening stations. But that's as exciting as it gets
