Just been on the configurator and my MY22 spec is also over £2,000 more expensive assuming you could order the Technology Plus Pack which you can't at present.
Is there any word on when the Technology Plus Pack will return? My order from March is now permanently stalled until it's back, very frustrating!

I’ve been told it isn’t being removed but the packages were simply being altered and they were still waiting for official from BMW. Some items on the configurator still contain description of the old. They shouldn’t really have amended the configurator until it was ready to do so completely rather than this half assed way which is causing confusion

Totally agree, I really feel for anyone that is close to the point when they need to ‘lock in’ their chosen options - must be a nightmare not really knowing what they are ordering / going to actually end up with!

Yes must be horrible for those almost at build or the ones who were nearing production then dropping back to 105. My order is not assigned to a build slot yet. My dealer has the slots ready but are awaiting the complete and official ordering guides - I presume when these are there the online configurator will also reflect what can and cannot be ordered. I’ve ordered through the specialist sales division which is owned by BMW so I’m hoping the info I’m getting is accurate 🤣

Finally been allocated a build slot for August now with the new iDrive spec. Ordered back in March and was due NOV/DEC est.
Sounds like it might of been people who had ordered the Tech Plus pack had to be put back maybe?
They are still confirming my figures though with the changes.

Did you have to do anything to get your slot confirmed?

Was at the dealers last Wednesday chatting to the sales guys about availability to test a 240. They have one in the showroom but it belongs to BMW and they're not allowed to use it. It was £5k more for similar spec as I had priced up on the configurator a few months ago. They should have a tester in soon (Williams Bolton).

Mine now been pushed back from June to Sept and now Oct delivery so I’ll 💯 have the new idrive8.

Do we know if the updated dash will have an improved ambient lighting across the dash that was missing in the current spec?

I think you’ll need to sit down with your dealer and make sure 1) that all the options you previously selected are still on your order in the updated configurator and 2) ask him to look at the list of standard and optional equipment to see if that sort of thing is in or out.

Yeah they can sell the "loaned" 240's (without a test drive), but they have to remain in the dealership for a minimum of 6 months. (Not just the dealership you mention)

Berrys Croydon have a high spec 240 in the showroom which is available for pre-sale with September delivery (assuming nobody has bought it since Friday).

Just checked with genius again - have a new build date of w/c 8th August.

Not spoken to my dealer yet to confirm any spec changes etc and they did suggest the date may come forward... Bit frustrating it's over 2 months away but at least there's some idea date wise now...

Has anyone been told they are 100% sure they are getting the new ID8 curved screen?
My build which should have been in Q1 22 was pushed back to June and now back again to August with a Sept delivery. They have confirmed all the spec is the same as ordered and it will not have the new ID8 screen as that is only being fitted to the I4 & IX
To be honest I am not bothered about what screen I get, I just want the car. It will be almost a year by the time I do get it.

You’ve been told wrong. M240 gets the curved screen &ID8 from build week 26. My dealer showed me the notice from BMW

Ordered 1st week Nov, delivery pushed back from June, Sept and now early Oct. My dealer call to confirm that my car was pulled from the build schedule whilst they updated production lines to accommodate new ID8.

I too will have waited almost 12 months delivery, would have preferred ID7 as I think it’s more driver focus but at this stage I’ll just be happy to get the car as at times it’s felt like I’ll never see it. Hopefully it won’t slip back again and the next few months don’t drag. :0)

I ordered 22nd July and been pushed back numerous times due to ticking all the boxes and expecting a fully spec'd car...the latest for me is build week 25 the week before the change to id8 hopefully it goes through before the change over as i would rather have id7 as it looks more thought about and built in.. dealer is confident it will go through before the change over but who knows!!!!!
