Here in Canada it seems not much is happening other than the lucky ED folks getting theirs on June 21st. I was first told that confirmation would occur early March, then April and now here it is mid May and still no firm dates. I've seen the rumour that CDN production confirmations will come out early June; the US forums talk about the NA launch on June 21st; there are cars rumoured to be on CDN dealer premises and a sighting of an M4 in Halifax carport -- almost certainly those are dealer launch cars... I'd sure like to know what BMW Canada's strategy is.

Does anyone have some facts on this?
Well I am on the ED for the end of June, and all I have is my production number and that is it so far, the only way I know my M4 will be ready is that when I fly to Munich, they better have something to drive.

I call BMW Canada Bi-weekly and sometimes they tell me production should start next week and other times they do not have a clue.

I do agree that the US/UK counterparts are better organized then the Canadian division, and it is frustrating to hear that they have production dates way before us and we ordered ours at the beginning of the year.

I even did not get the ED package for the trip yet meanwhile the US customers have everything they need to do the ED and they organized there trip on their own and ours is done by BMW Canada, go figure.

I'm on ED for the beginning of July. All I've got is the production number and confirmed delivery date. The rest is a leap of faith.

Thanks - Guess I'll just hold my breath for another 2-3 weeks and see what happens.

Good news and lucky you! When did you place your order? And do you know if it's a dealer or customer allocation?

What information did you have to provide. Maybe it can help some of us other Canadians with the wait!
I only provided the production number to BMW Canada call center and they said order accepted. I asked if they have any more information but they don't. They will only find out once the vehicle has VIN assigned and status move into production. I will probably call once a week.

M4 Production Confirmed for June

Well I got some good news today - my M4 is confirmed for June production which should mean delivery in late July or early August. Perfect - made my day. So my wondering about BMW Canada strategy earlier this week was for nothing - things are moving along.

I've finally got confirmation that my build is week 25 so I should be expecting a late July delivery. Apparently they've received some pre-production units too at my dealer so needless to say, I'm going to take a gander at them this weekend

There was also a mention made by someone earlier (sorry I can't remember who was the source) that Canada only received 400 allocations this year. My dealer confirmed this and that most, if not all, of those allocations have been sold.

I was also told the ED packages will be sent out in the next few weeks to the regular ED customers.
