I almost went with Motegi... Looks remarkably close to my favorite BMW "red" Sakhir Orange... At least in pics.

I speed everything but CCBs and am having MPE, side skirts, Pro spoiler all port installed. MPE sounds the best!!

My last M car was Sakhir Orange. I absolutely loved that color. Received soooooo many positive comments from random people. So I needed something close to it....

We probably had the same “last M car” - mine was a 2016 F80 in SO with Silverstone. It was gorgeous...

I wanted an equally vivid color for the F90 (MBB), don’t care what folks say about it needing to be more stately. It’s still a 600+HP hooligan!

Indeed, I had a 2018 M3 Comp. with Sakhir Orange and Silverstone interior!! I don't care about stately, I want a fun color that pops!

I think mine is on the same boat, the Monza. Leaving Southampton UK right now. Onto Halifax, then NJ.

ETA into NJ on the 27th, I believe. That's at least what the BMW genius told me on Friday.

Mine’s actually the Silver Ray, steaming onto to Baltimore, ETA 25th!

I have a trial for Marinetraffic and it’s fun to track the boats crossing the pond. Yours is indeed just leaving the UK and while it’s calculated to hit Halifax on the 1st, the estimated/scheduled ETA is indeed the 26th.

So i am curious what y'all think: my car is located at the SC PC and I am supposed to pick it up via performance center delivery a week from tomorrow. The BMW connected is already active on the car and it is already showing me that the car has an error message. Rear axle differential warning. Should I be concerned?

I wouldn't be. It's possible the car hasn't been fully PDI'ed yet, or even hasn't been removed from transport mode. Who knows what kind of errors that would result in. Ask them to check for error codes when you get there and the car is ready for you. Only then would I care about codes.

That's only my opinion and how I would handle it though. Others may have more informed advice.

I envy that you got to choose your perfect setup, but I don't envy the wait That must be so painful! I didn't get exactly what I wanted, but 95% today is ok I guess.

Hope you get yours soon!!

Thanks! I've gotten most of my BMWs off dealer inventory and mostly what I wanted, with the exception of my 2011 E92 Lemans Blue 335xi coupe (and now this one), and yes, that was a painful 3 months.

I loved the excitement of tracking the status and vessel ports stops (Bremerhaven, UK, Halifax, etc)

Good luck with yours!

No factory tours. The Zentrum is open. But the CCA Foundation exhibit is so worth it. It easily makes up for the closed plant.

For those that ordered a 2021 - how long did it take your order to go from received to scheduled for production?

Thanks.
Just checked and it went into scheduled for production last night. So it took 2 weeks for me.
