I got my allocation today - getting built in October
Great news. What spec / colour you going for ?
Gone for grey with gold wheels, didn’t bother with the ceramic brake option.

They have put a load of restrictions in place with the purchase:

Must be financed with BMWFS not allowed to pay cash for it. I don’t want finance on my credit history as we are hoping to move around December / January time, may have to register it in my company name, but then I’m liable for the BIK on it which I don’t won’t. This could actually be a deal breaker for me…

Not allowed to sell before the RIS has been completed
Not allowed to sell before 4 months of ownership

Par for the course buddy - but although you have to take BMW FS, you can settle up after the first payment, so I wouldn't worry too much about that.

Not getting or none ordered? I nearly ordered Green.

Out of the 26 deposits the dealer took I was only one to get allocated a car. Must have been my lucky day!
