Timing for acceptance of special Individual order?

I submitted a special order request for Individual interior in last week of June, and BMW has still not provided dealer with confirmation. On my previous car they confirmed these requests within 24 hours.

Does this seem odd to anyone?

i waited few weeks for the allocation. I ordered on March 1st and my car will be delivered in europe in 2 weeks, so in sum 5 Months from order to delivery.
I ordered Piano black trim, cohiba brown and Azurite black
My dealer meant the individuals cost me 4-5 extra weeks of waiting time
SO it doens't seem to be odd to me
PS: the worst is waiting.....but thanks to all in this forum. The best thing to read while waiting

I'm not interested in the total time it took. I am more interested in the time taken from order submission to order acceptance.

Hmm I submitted a special order for Brilliant White and Full Extended Individual leather, interior trim and got a response and quote back in a matter of hours. Order locked down a day later with production # and ED date 2 days later (original special order submitted late June).
Not sure if it makes a difference but this was from an existing production number , "just" change to the individual/special order items

I got the quote back next day, but the confirmation has been pending for 3 weeks now.

Hmm , I got my confirmation the next day and even was able to changed my ED date from 3rd week of Oct to Oct 1st .
I've heard rumors BMW would not taken on any additional Individual orders until late July but not sure that's true

Looks like the Full Individual Leather has been added to the build. However the Piano Black looks like it has fallen off and we're not sure if the platinum headliner went through. Hope the piano black hasn't gone away.

I changed my color from Azurite (individual) to Sapphire black last week and it took 2 days for BMW to register the change to my dealer. They then notified me that this would delay the start of production for my car because I no longer had an individual color and therefore would have to wait. Still waiting for a VIN/production#. It's like watching water boil.
