Thoughts/feelings about missing out on the F80 LCI, round 2? I do like the new LED headlights, but not sure that I like them enough to order another car or retrofit my own. Will be curious to see how the base price changes now that they're standard on the F8x.

Interestingly enough, tracking through MyBMW shows that production has completed (as expected) while the automated phone line still says in production with est. completion date of 1/16. Who would've thought the website would be more up-to-date than the automated line?

Resisting the urge to call Genius until later this week.

My estimated completion date was 1/14/17. Yesterday I called the Genius and they confirmed that production was completed on 1/14, and that it left the factory on 1/16.

As of yesterday, the website showed production ended. I just called the automated phone line and they said "your vehicle is in production, the estimated completion date is 1/14".

Is yours headed to Brunswick? (labeled as SSIPOA on your VIR) If so, I bet we wind up on the same boat.

So my order actually went 150 before the holidays but because of the lengthy break, it finished up production on Monday (1/16). That makes just 2 days from production completion (155, I think?) to 193.

You may want to join the Week 4/5/6 thread, since Production Week supposedly represents the production finish date:
