Message I got from my dealer regarding my M5

Thank you for submitting a Performance Center Delivery reservation for -------. Unfortunately, this production number (3966550) is a new model or new model year and we cannot offer a delivery date at this time. EPA and CARB Certifications are issued by the government and must be obtained for every model every year, regardless of any change (or not) in the production of the vehicle. The vehicle will remain at the VDC/VPC until approvals are received and all holds are removed. It will not ship to The BMW Performance Center or your BMW Retail Center.

Please inform your client that we will contact you with a delivery date as soon as all EPA and CARB Certifications have been received by BMWNA and the holds have been removed. Should the client wish to cancel you will need to submit a cancellation form which can be found on CENTERNET.

Thank you for your patience!

As an FYI - this happened last year on several models, and as a consequence the PCD team got backed up with the result that some people only got an appointment date that was up to 6 weeks after VPC clearance.

I don't know the supply demand situation right now, but this should be a concern. I know the 535i is subject to the same hold.

Well that's good to hear the reason behind the delay and looks like they are working on it. Can't be much longer. And for those that can't seem to wait, there it is, submit a cancellation form which can be found on CENTERNET.
