Finally will take delivery of M340i

From signing the contract and putting down deposit on Aug 21st, it has been 101 excruciating days of waiting. And now, finally it is here.

Spec:
2020 M340i xDrive (shame we don't get RWD in Canada)
Mineral Grey
Black full merino leather( that is why my production got delayed 1 month)
Oak wood trim
Premium excellence pkg
Adaptive M suspension
Black mirror cap
Black grille
791M black wheel + PS4S tires

Dealer told me back in August that I would get September's allocation. But they told me again by the end of September that because of my individual merino option, production got delayed for 1 months.

Finally the car is made on Oct 23rd. Departed form Bremerhaven on 27th. Several stops in Europe and arrived at Halifax on Nov 17th.


I thought it would wait for CN rail to get to Toronto but CN rail is striking. So it got trucked by Hansen directly from Halifax. I found the order on Nov 19th Tuesday, thought it would arrive in Toronto in 2-3 days but it never got picked up until the next Monday. Dealer must have cheaped out selecting standard shipping instead of 2 day shipping if u know what I am talking about.

Now Hansen website shows it is enroute and ETA is Wednesday Nov 27th. I will go there immediately to watch it coming off the truck. Dealer tells me PDI will take 2-3 days, so I will pick it up on Saturday 30th! 101 days after I put down the order. What a wait.

Mod(if u can call it mod) planned:
330i black grille
Ceramic coating
Xpel windows tinting.

Will post more on Saturday when I pick it up.

Thanks for sharing the order timeline. If it's any consolation, the delay because of individual options is quite reasonable. Others were delayed even lounger.

Enjoy the car and please post pictures when you have a moment.

I suppose you are in the states. Here in Canada, we cannot get black 791m wheel without ps4s.

I dont understand how Canada wouldn't have the all season rf's as a option given the climate.

Not a big fan of bmw keeping certain options only available to some areas and not others.

I agree. RWD should be available worldwide. As least as an option that I can custom order. Damn BMW for keeping it for USA only.

We do. You just have to get the 792 wheel square set up and you get all season run flats.
