It only take 3 minutes on the BMW Website to talk with Genius and they'll tell you, as long as you have the order number...
I obtained my order number from dealer and rang BMW direct for an update, the last update they have on their system was on the 27th August (as per the dealer update) that the build was completed, buy my estimated handover week is now week 41

I ordered the car on the 4th July which just seems like forever ago.

BMW advised that the update is nearly 3 weeks out of date so that handover date may change considerably - but I'm not hopeful.

Does this timeline sound like a long time to anyone else here?

Yes.. seems long... have you tried “live chat” with the genius as described in the thread?

Advisor(s) are very good and can update you with current status and anticipated delivery date..

Mine is still 9620 - at sea. I guess we were on different vessels after all!

Expected to get to Sandal Wakefield on the 24th
What status do you have at the moment? Mine was still 9650 this morning...

I'm also on 9650. I've been speaking to the sales rep this morning and he's been entertaining the possibility I may be able to collect the car this week
I'm guessing that would mean dispatch should be very soon.

Thanks! I'm hoping for the same. Seems that they take 2-3 days to prep a new car so I figure if it gets to Coopers Reading by tomorrow/Wednesday (only a 50 mile trip from Southampton) I may be able to collect Friday or possibly Saturday. Here's hoping! :-) Let me know when yours gets dispatched.

Wonder what the difference is between 9645 and 9650? I assumed that 9650 meant it was loaded on a transporter and ready to go but mine has been stuck at that since Friday. Which kinda feels like it might be in storage too!?

As BMW undertakes the PDI for some dealers at the docks, I took it to mean that "9645 UK and IE Storage" was pre PDI and "9650 Awaiting for dispatch to dealer" was after the PDI had been completed awaiting the next car transporter to the relevant dealer. Could be wrong....

I guess they probably don't send a transporter for 1 car so as you say could just be waiting until it fills up with enough Cooper Reading cars (or other dealers in the general area) to be worth sending out... Here's hoping for tomorrow :-)

Ironically, I was in Southampton today and saw the BMWs that had just been unloaded. Thought it would be too early for my car!

I'm now at 9660 - transfer to dealer. Assume it will arrive later this afternoon. Going to ask for a Friday handover. Fingers crossed!

I just got an email stating:

> Anthony, YOUR NEW BMW HAS LEFT OUR FACTORY AND WILL SOON BE ON ITS WAY TO THE UK.

So Week 41 sounds about right, at least I'm getting updates now.

I know, frustrating! It was the taking part that counts....😊

Could be worse I took delivery of a fleet vehicle for work yesterday that I ordered in April 2018, so the BMW is positively speedy in comparison

Good luck for Friday 👍
