My order is screwed up.

Finally looked at my BOS yesterday and noticed that the EDC has vanished off the optional equipment on my incoming car.I have had EDC on both my E92 M3's and felt I have benefitted from having the choice of shock settings for our crappy roads here in Ontario and being able to tailor it for the track which I do quite frequently. It was on my original BOS but was not on the dealer invoice which is used to generate the final BOS.I am a little pissed to say the least!

Tell you what, I'll take your car off your hands now and you can take my allocation which is scheduled for a July 14th build as it has EDC

Have you checked out Parkview BMW? They have 4 M3/M4s just sitting there in the showroom unsold. There's more than 10 M3/M4s avaiable in the GTA that have not been sold yet. You might get lucky and find one that you like.

Checked it out this am but nothing else close to options that I thought I had ordered.Chances are I will take this car as it will be a short term vehicle as I have a C7 Z06 on order for next spring.

Sorry for the newbie question - but is EDC the same option as Adaptive M Suspension?

I'm quite surprised that there are so many available. I assumed they would have all been sold pretty quickly. I lucked out when I placed my order (Early June) because I got a late June build (3 weeks after order). It just completed today! But I only got that slot due to a cancellation, otherwise I would have had a late July/Early August build which also isn't too bad... I assumed this years allocations would have all been spoken for already. Guess they're not as in-demand as I thought they'd be.

Lol. That's funny. I opter for Adaptive suspension as well since I had it on my E92, but after test driving a passive suspension M4, I can tell you, it's not a big deal at all. It's still a good ride. May just be worth driving to find out for yourself.

After thinking about it I am going to take this car as the alternatives are not that great.I have many hard riding cars over the years and lived with them.My concern is how soft it will be on the track with the passive suspension.

I've driven a car with the passive suspension and it was firm but not uncomfortable. My impression is it is absolutely firm enough for the track. If the report that the passive suspension is between sport and sport + is true, it is likely close to ideal for most applications.

My order is delayed!!

I put my order in late May/early June and thought I was taking delivery at the end of July. When I phoned up BMW Canada to track status, they said your order was accepted and isn't scheduled for production until late August!! WTF!!!

They said: 1 week to build the car, 2-3 weeks to ship. That means I don't get my car until mid-late Sept!!!! Needless to say I called my dealer asking what could be done...hoping I can get something sooner!!!

I ordered an AY with exec / premium package, EDC, Carbon Ceramics etc.
If I could get one earlier I would forget the Carbon brakes.

It's the brakes. They are on constraint. Remove that and I bet your build moves up. Or do what I did and have your dealer search for a car similar in build that is on its way or here but not sold. I did this and am taking my AY fully loaded car home Monday. Squeaky wheel theory works

Good choice. I think you'll find that it will still perform on the track.....and if it doesn't, you can always resort to coilovers as I probably will

The trouble with many of the cars that were built/coming, but not sold, was that many were loaded with a boatload of options I don't want. And, in my case, the dealer could only find ONE that was 6MT. But it had Aluminum Blade trim which is a no-go for me.

I ordered mine in April with CCB and was told it will be early July production, but it went into production this week so I'm getting it around mid August.

Its the carbon ceramic brakes. The only reason I got a week 26 production date (I ordered the car at the beginning of June) is because someone abandoned their week 26 slot due to carbon ceramic brakes only starting production in September (and they wanted to wait for the CCB). I believe the factory is closed for most of August... so from what I understand the earliest you can get carbon ceramic brake cars delivered in Canada is into October (Sept production, oct delivery).... hope my info is wrong, but thats what I was told when I got the cancelled slot. My car just completed production today (i'm in toronto), so I'll let you know how long it takes to arrive to give you a rough gauge. Which dealership did you order from?

Not very keen on aftermarket bits on modern stuff.I have instructed in & driven a lot of E9X M3's and never found an aftermarket setup that works as well as the stock ZCP on track.They usually run out of travel when being driven at the limit and usually react really poorly to curb hopping which is often the fast way around a lot of tracks.Yes it can be sorted by fine tuning with settings & spring rates but really who has the time to do that?I sure do not!
