Thanks for the context. I remember they mentioned something about having production slot at the end of August with September delivery. I still think there is a problem with some parts, but communication is almost non existent so there is a bit of guessing on my end. I just hope it won't be pushed back again as I may reconsider other options.

Yeah it's poor they should be communicating and you have spec'd different things to me so those might be causing the issue.

Although my sales contact was quite clear when he said the 7 wasn't affected at all, fingers crossed for the Nov delivery for you.

I think your dealer needs to explain those, although looking at the legend the last numerical field is week number not date so looks like it'll go into production mid Dec this year.

First post and 745e on order!

Hello all,

First post on here. First BMW in over 20 yrs for me, coming from a Jag XF.

Ordered from Barons BMW in Cambridge at the end of April:
  • 745e M Sport
  • M Sport Pro Pack
  • Carbon Black
  • Black Nappa leather
  • Black wood trim
  • Blue brake callipers
  • Through loading
  • 817M bi-colour 20” alloys
  • De-badged at PDI

It's been in the UK for around 8 weeks but held up waiting for cameras to be attached!

According to the BMW chat there is currently no ETA for release to the dealer.

On the plus side, BMW UK have given me something while I wait. Which is nice.

Over and out for now.

BMW have said it has no ETA!

But they have given me a new M440i for free until the 7 is ready. Which is nice.

I'll keep you all posted.

Mine is here, it was due to be delivered today but has been delayed until next Thursday as they are fitting a tracker (which was news to me must be a requirement for the lease)

Umm, did you consent to this tracker?

Sounds like a major invasion of privacy. Besides, all BMW's come with GPS vehicle tracking from the factory, which allows them to locate the vehicle if stolen etc.

No they didn't it seemed a bit odd to me as they said it was part of an "offer" included in the service pack but every 7 series gets the service pack and it's not an offer as such just part of the spec, never heard of it before, if they'd said BMW leasing had required it then that would have made sense.

I had to have a Porsche tracker fitted once to a 911 as that was part of the Porsche insurance regs but never on a BMW and my insurance hasn't asked for it either.

I'd prefer it not to have a tracker as I don't like them.

Update on my 745e. Dealer emailed this morning and it's "due to be completed on 14th Sep" and ready for collection later next week.

For those interested in such things:

Ordered 29th April, to be delivered 14th Sep

That's 4 months, 17 days (139 days inclusive) end-to-end for the UK market with the build done to order at the Dingolfing site in Germany.

Mine will be 80 days 29th June to 16th September for a build to order back into the UK.

Called the dealer and left a message for my contact, no reply or acknowledgement.

Messaged BMW on their Genius chat... my 745e is expected next week. 140 days since order and counting.

Wow, that's not good that they aren't being proactive with you I'd be mad at my sales contact if they treated me like that, but least it's coming next week.

I've just had an email message saying mine is being delivered tomorrow morning that reminds me need to sort the insurance out!

My dealer accepted the order and the options and hasn't said anything yet, I will of course check with them but it would be good hear of anyone's recent experience.

I've ordered:

730d M sport
Dravit grey/cognac/black interior/piano trim
Executive drive pro
M sport pro pack
Heated steering wheel
Through load

Quite excited actually as I've wanted an LCI every since it came out when I had a pre face lift 740d xdrive.
I was offered a order of a new one they said I could spec what I wanted with no delay to the build, but ended up.going for a ex demo 2020 pick it up tmoz

Congrats, bet you are chuffed!

I ordered a G12 for the office mid August and it’s currently showing week 45 build.

I ordered a base spec 730d, black on black, with privacy glass, tech pack and comfort pack, so will hopefully keep both driver and passenger happy!

Thank you Mark, yes nothing quite beats that new car interior feel as you step into it for the first time, coming from a Golf it was quite the step up.

Update on my G11 745e M Sport being built-to-order in Germany...

Called the dealer just now and the ETA is now 28 September.

That'd be 153 days or 5 months on the nose since I ordered it back in April.

They're still happy to loan me the free M440i in the meantime. I offered to swap it over with a 7 or 8 series if he needed this one back.

I'll keep you posted.
