How could BMW do this just 2days into my delivery?!

I'm so pissed!
So sorry to hear this..but i am sure you will be driving somthing over there

Good luck let us know

Is it possible to see the list of VINs or can only a dealer or someone in BMW see the list? I took delivery today of my M3, mine is a May 2016 build. I had not heard of this news unit I picked my car up today, and my CA and dealer mentioned this issue to me. They said my car was not one of the cars with the issue.

Trust by verify, as they say, right

This is a very bad timing for BMW with all the summer ED planned.

I hope you ALL will get compensated for it and still can enjoy your Euro trip.

I am in the same boat with delivery scheduled for next Tuesday at BMW WELT. My rep is doing what he can to make this right for me but I am a very distraught. All the planning, waiting and anticipation.

Let all keep up each other updated as we find out more.

European delivery might as well be called European bait and switch

That is very strange, how can they lose the plates? If lost why cant they just slap on another set of plates? Seems like a minor issue, not sure.

my vehicle was on a vessel that arrived on july 15th. My tracking says its in the finishing touches stage. I wonder if the vpc will hold it. not too excited about this because I was looking forward to pick up this weekend and get the july rates with my voucher that expires on the 29th. not as bad as the ed people. hopefully we all get through this.

anybody else supposed to take delivery this week? i was on the mignon

Sounds good. I'm gonna call the ED dept tomorrow and try to find out what BMW plans to do for us. They supposedly don't have the parts to fix the Diff. My question is Why can't they stop production of current M cars in production and use those parts for our cars?

Folks, unfortunately, it is ILLEGAL for a dealership to sell you the car if it is affected by a delivery stop. It is a Federal crime. If your car is considered to be one with this defect, you will not be able to take delivery.


There are no lead times as to when they'll get fixed.

If you need to know if your car is under this recall. PM me the last 7 of your VIN and I will be able to tell you.

My car was built in the recall window but I just found from my CA that I'm good to go for my PCD on Thursday. Not sure if it's a valid data point but I have a DCT...good luck everyone!!

Man I'd really like to know what the actual issue is. My M3 is on a boat, took ED on 6/27. I assume I'm affected.

Trust me, I tried. We went round and round for hours. It was a Friday delivery, so they couldn't get anything done. I had the registration papers, just not the plates.

I am working this through BMW NA, and I expect some reparations. Initial emails show that they are willing to work with me... I am negotiating now.
