Will follow up with my SA in two weeks if not heard back as It takes some time to get on a train. Cars probably haven't pass custom yet.
Only reason I am worried is because I live in Vancouver where the city is completely isolated to rest of Canada via both road and rail due to recent flooding. Trying to figure out how long these “repair” of rail will take and might have to cancel my custom order and try to find in stock M4s depending on the expected delay. My SA told me he would have more detailed info regarding the transportation once the status update to at port which has not happened yet at least on the system.

I'm still waiting for new info. Just spoke to my SA today who showed me a screenshot showing 12/2/2021 arrival but the status is still 193. Doesn't make much sense for it still to be awaiting a ship in Germany and to arrive next week

it's been 193 since at least November 8th

I hope your SA is right. However for context, I've been waiting at 193 since Oct 14 and Shinzee, whose ride is only now in transit, had a slightly longer wait at Bremerhaven.

What a total disaster how BMW is managing this order system. I just got a call from SA that although my car has changed its status to 198 “in vessel” stage 3 weeks ago, its actually in 193 stage stuck in Germany port waiting for 2 stop sales to be fixed. How is this even possible? They updated the system to 198 but its actually still in germany stuck at 193 stage.

If anyone recall, my car was stuck in 155 QC stages for 6 weeks before dispatching the factory so I thought both stop sales were fixed at the factory during that 6 weeks. Instead the car is still stuck in Germany 9 weeks after build completion and will take even longer as the stop sales are not even fixed. This car was supposed to be a Week 31 build (early Aug) but the earliest time I might be able to get my hands on is prob Feb 2022. I am seriously considering to cancel the order and look for sth else in stock

My car hit 150 today but I have to cancel the order.

On 10.24 my dealer submitted my final spec updates for this week49 allocation, but BMW never processed it, my dealer tried several times to reach out but only heard back last week, they said they will talk to individual team to make the change but today it just went into production with the old spec.
That spec is completely different from mine so I won't pay for it.
Right now they offer me a week5 allocation, but adding 2 months wait is frustrating especially during parts shortage.
I won't blame my dealer since they already did what they could do, BMW should definitely be responsible for this incident and give us a better solution.

That sucks

unfortunately, any 'solution' would have to come out of the dealer's gross profit...and given the market, it's hard for them to justify that when there's such a shortage of cars and an abundance of buyers

hope you get it! I'd say you're way more likely since you're located in TO. My recalls are still open so that ain't happening for me

My dealer said they dont have any informations or solution regarding this yet which I find hard to believe as this is crisis level of business disaster for all the german car dealers in BC as their only shipping method was railway.

I am seriously thinking about canceling my order after 4 months wait if it takes 3-4 months to get here from Halifax
CN Rail. Mine is on a car somewhere, updates pending. CN apparently resumed into Vancouver on Thursday.

Due to unforeseen event I have to cancel my order of 2022 M4 Comp xDrive IOMG exterior KO interior with premium pkg and interior and exterior carbon pkg 826M bicolor wheel.

It will probably arrive Vancouver dealer in about 1-2 months. If any of you want or knows someone looking for allocation of brand new M4 Comp xDrive they can take it from me as I know allocations are hard to find nowadays.

That sucks. Hope all is ok for you in the grand scheme of things.

Didn't realize RAM were being fixed in Canada. My week 40 is still in Bremerhaven waiting for the RAM. Not sure who I pissed off but I think I may have the longest wait now in purgatory

Really curious to see what the timeline of your build looks like. I also have Week 45 build and my dealer showed me 150 on Nov 4, 155 since Nov 16 with no further update as of yesterday. How was your build started, finished and shipped to Canada in one month? Please, sharing will be much appreciated.
