Where are you getting the status details (code 193, etc)? I have tried both the bmwusa.com owners site and the 1-800 number for status, but neither give that level of detail.

Chose brilliant white metallic, it's a euro individual color not on the website, was a pain to get them to do it for me.

I have to ask the salesman to look into the computer at the dealership for the most accurate status numbers, they have more info than anyone about the status numbers then I took that number and looked at the status list on this site

Nice color . I have brilliant white and Cohiba Extended/Full Interior . It actually
was pretty easy to get BMW NA to confirm the order . As long as the dealer knows
how to contact the BMW NA sales desk there shouldn't be a problem. Got both options
(Brilliant White and Cohiba Full Extended) confirmed in less than 12hrs.

Mine actually just went into production yesterday for a 10/1 ED . Guess the individual
options are slowing down the production process a little bit.

Wow I dropped mine off at the carrier on Monday and still dont know if its on a boat or at the port. When I call the 800# it tells me the car is "in transit". My dealers screen doesnt show any changes as well. I was told, by the carrier, that Euro Delivery Cars get higher priority.

Your right it wasn't too hard, the sales ninny ordered mine in frozen white and kept telling me it was brilliant white. I had to prove it to them with links from this site!! They had to change the order again which pushed it another 2 weeks when we started in August making changes. Hopefully there aren't too many brilliant white Metallics out there like you and I , I really want to be one or 2 of a kind (shhh don't tell anyone )

I can surely tell you it's less than 10 days... 6 days from start to sitting at the port
