I'm going to say that sounds suspect.No, I have been in contact with my SA and he has told me nothing yet.
When placing your pre-order you should have gotten an email from BMW assigning you to the dealer.
In Nov when the order bank opened you should have been able to configure and sent your configuration to the SA or configure your car with the SA.
The SA should have created an order in the system and sent you a VIR pdf to approve.
That should have been submitted to the factory.
If you gave BMW $1500 in June and you don't have a VIR with your name on it, I suspect your dealer stole your order.
You need to press for the VIR.
Waiting on my Tanzanite M50!
