Who is affected??

Anyone contacted their dealer about the missing USB and Blutooth problem with the 328 batch?

Isn't this for German built cars? All Aussie F30's are South African built aren't they?

For the time being, yes the sedans are. Coupes & Ms may come from Germany.

Fingers crossed we aren't affected. I will be seriously upset if we get gipped!

Got confirmation from my dealer that my build was not affected by the manufacturing issue. I was told some orders have been delayed due to this.

From memory, your car is a MSport? Has it even been built yet? can't envisage it being affected if it hasn't been built yet..

I'm a little confused, that thread quoted states it's for German built cars? If our cars are built in SA it shouldn't affect us at all?

Check your options if you have your VIN www.bmwvin.com

This way you'll know for certain.

Looking up at the tracking website, I just wanted to see the schedules of some shipping, so I looked up carsales and found some VINs of some Demos.

Interesting that I found a couple
WBA3A52000F254189
WBA3A52010F254475
that when you look at the 11th digit is an F which indicates a Munich build rather then a N indicating a South African build... so it seems that some 328i's were made in Germany at some stage. Is this still the case I wonder?

The first few batches were made in Germany until the Rosslyn plant came up... I believe all cars bound for Aus are made in Rosslyn now...

It's in the ad under Vehicle Specifications. All Carsales ads have VIN in them.
