Yes, the Carbon Ceramic brakes are delayed until March 2013. I guess nobody can answer if you can wait 2+ more months but you. Then again, what's 2 more months for an option you really want, assumed you really want them.


Best regards,
south

In these situations. There are typically 2 viable courses of action as BMW does not respond well to lobbying so you can rule that out:
1) change your order to 3/2013 and get the ceramic brakes
2) hope and pray that BMW makes it available sooner and check again in early December before your car goes status 112

Generally I don't recommend hope and pray strategies. They tend to fail.

Thanks. After dealers answer , I think about , need I ceramic brakes ? I had e60 m5 and e39 m5, and brakes were very good 1. Winter wheels will be only 20" 2. I listened that ceramic brakes are afraid bad roads (shock) I live in Ukraine and our roads are very bad
