"Stop-Sale" Ordered on my car today due to "emissions/fuel tank" service bulletin

ARGH. So my car landed today, and my SA bumped it to the front of the line for PDI. He's a good dude.

Pulled up, saw the beautiful girl. Super excited.
I was literally with the SA and he was walking me through the car while F&I was getting the papers ready... when SA got a phone call from the Manager. In the time that the car was delivered from the port of Baltimore to the dealership - just one day - BMW has issued a stop-sale on all 5ers [correction: F90's] and some additional [M] models for some sort of emissions issue with the fuel tank. The information was murky on the stop-sale order presumably because BMW is not yet sure what the root cause or fix is. So I couldn't buy the car tonight. I have to wait till BMW gives further instructions to the dealer on what the fix is... hopefully it's programming and not a new part we have to wait for, or worse, engineered.

Others who are picking up their cars and haven't yet, be forewarned! And if anyone has more information, please post up here...

Love the color. Very disappointing about the stop sale. Hopefully we can get some info quick so us current owners know if the car is safe to drive. Taking mine in for the 1200 mile service in two weeks so hopefully they have some answers.

Anyway good luck and hopefully a quick resolution for you!

Sorry to hear, my F90 has been at Bremerhaven 2 weeks now. Could be why.

Ughh... Mine is supposed to deliver to the dealer this weekend. Can't pickup before the 11th anyways (BMWCCA rebate).

I'll shoot my CA an email this morning.

Thanks! Any further documentation indicating a repair path has been identified (and what it is)?

Stop sale here too. My 2021 M5 Competition arrived at the dealership yesterday. I was supposed to pick it up today. Dealer emailed me this morning to tell me about the stop sale. Really hoping for a simple fix soon!

Since they are all M cars that are affected, and also coming from 2 different countries, I'm hopeful it's a software issue and not hardware which seems less likely.

Talked with two people that I trust. They both said no idea on what the fix will be or the the timing. Told me drive the car, if light comes on call them lol.

Fingers crossed it gets sorted quick and you get your car. They should do something for you! It involves a lot of cars.

Same here. Brand new 2020 M5. Dealer unveiled the car, started it up, let me sign everything today and take my money and then told me about delivery stop afterwards. Gave me a Toyota Camry loaner as they were all out of loaners. Insult to injury. Now telling me no update till earliest Monday. What a complete joke.

This sucks. My car comes in on the 16th and my 7 lease is up on the 24th. I'll wait to hear from my sales guy and see what BMW is able to do if I can't pickup my new car.
