Build Week 37 Discussion

Starting a thread for Week 37 [September 13th to 19th] --

I got a confirmed allocation on July 23rd after putting down a deposit in early July. I was 3rd in line at Seattle for an AWD allocation.

2022 BMW M4 Competition xDrive Coupe
Gentian Blue (Individual Paint)
Kyalami Orange/Black Full Merino Leather
M Double-spoke Bi-color Style 825M wheels
M Compound Brakes with Red Calipers
Executive Package
Driving Assistance Professional Package
Parking Assistance Package
Carbon Fiber Trim
M Carbon Exterior Package
Icon Adaptive LED Headlights with Laserlight
M Drive Professional
M Performance side skirts
M Performance flow-through spoiler

The expected timelines at this point is 3 to 4 months to the West coast from mid-September (given individual paint), so it's likely to be a December 2021 or January 2022 delivery. The BMW Genius told me to call closer to or at the Build week to get more concrete dates.

This was priced at MSRP with a $500 discount for loyalty. The build's got everything except Carbon-bucket seats, Carbon-ceramic brakes, seat ventilation and shadowline lights.
