Yo man, I'm with you on this!!!

Let me know when you're going to BMW Canada...I'll get my baseball bat ready!!!

LOL

Honestly for those that have picked up their cars or already placed an order, it's sorta a relief.

However this is ridiculous from a BMW buyer standpoint!!!

Just received confirmation via head office - new iDrive 100% not making it on to Canadian F30's for 2012. All I got that it will be integrated at "some time" in 2013.

I just lost a month on my order because of this stupid iDrive announcement. Would have had my car in September... now I won't get it until fackin October!!!

All this for nothing!!!!

That sounds stupid to me, two production lines creating the same product one with old and one with new iDrive.



My thinking would be that they probably have a Canadian Specific Assembly line that manufactures to Canadian specs.......

Old tech and all!


....also.... those of us who special order items ( i.e. I had the 2TB Sport Auto option put on my 328i) have one-offs built as part of the assembly.....

Osiris888, thanks for the original heads up. My CA just confirmed as martinf79's did. I will still wait out the winter. Perhaps a coupe is in my future along with a long wait.

I guess BMW really likes to rub it in to Canadians! Higher prices and a dumping ground for old tech!!

How true !!

In addition, BMW Canada has for many years been remiss with their tardy announcements of any upcoming model changes or technical upgrades (such as the new Nav system). Their dealers are always the last ones to be properly informed. What a strange way to run a car company !!!

For example, on May 12th, 2012, BMW NA announced the upcoming arrival of the F31 for Spring 2013 for the US market. As of today, July 19th, BMW Canada has not even confirmed that the F31 will be coming to Canada !!

Not to mention that we can't get M-sport on 328 ... would've made a world of difference for lots of people

If it's the same as previous years, it can be special ordered... but I haven't checked.

I'll fire away an email to BMW Canada.

That's weird, as we could special order it on the E90/E91..

Exactly!

We were allowed to special order it with the E90 but that has now changed. My dealer tried his best. I spoke to roughly 5 different CA (or SA's) and they all couldn't get the special order for the M Sport Package.

However they were able to special order stuff like the "paddle Shifters" and "Sport Auto Trans"...etc...

I really wanted to get the M Sport package but there was no way...unless maybe if we do an ED???
