Think yourself lucky.... BMW are just shipping cars without stuff.... touch screen, applecarplay/android auto.... and more.

If the customer complains, you get some cash back, but I'd be mega annoyed if my car turned up as a tech dinosaur!

I heard back from the dealer, apparently mine has been built but is missing some semiconductors.  They cannot give me a timeframe as to when they might find some.  :(
Guess its the DCC, the HUD and HC Stereo upgrades i ticked that are the problem.

I have the same options and it's complete. Similar scenario to yours. VW are building vehicles without the chips and storing the vehicles to add chips later. My car is on the way now and should see it within 2 weeks. Ordered end of June.

So I have had a call today from my dealer and the car is in. The video sent is superb the dealer is so chuffed and his words were that his dealership reckons it will be the only one they have in the dealership. He has checked the car and he says all the extras are fitted. So it’s now going into pdi and when i have some photos I will post. Several clubsports have also arrived today at the same dealers.

My car came with moonstone grey, pan roof, pro nav, DCC, HK, HUD, winter pack and heated rear seats, digital key, proactive passenger protection and rear view camera. Quite excited now folks.

Congratulations!

I half hoped we had the same dealer and by some miracle mine might have been one of those other CSs. Diff dealer though  :cry:

Still good to hear some are coming through at least.

Your car looks great, enjoy it. Just had a 50 mile drive in my ED45 on various roads, still adapting to DSG, which I feel may take a while  :grin: but it’s such a capable car.

Thanks for the kind words folks, looking forward to getting the car and then paying for it  :lipsrsealed: love to find out how the owners on this forum are faring with their cars. Anthony from Motorline VW reckons they will start to see more of the various models of customers cars coming through it’s almost as if VW have turned the tap back on again to get the cars out. Otherwise how are the dealers going to survive if they have to wait a year before getting paid ??
