Here's my situation. I made a reservation last year through BMW corporate and put down a deposit. I was contacted shortly there after to make an intro with the dealer. Early this year the order was finalised and a contract put in place, with the expectation for it being built in Q2. Today I received a call from my sales guy telling me my order is being pushed to a 2023 build and the price will be going up $10k.

I understand delays with production given the state of the world right now. I also understand there will be fine print in the contract allowing BMW to cancel the order. I do not understand how BMW thinks its okay to treat customers this way. The 2023 is going to be the same car and good business practice would dicate that they honour the agreed to price.

Is anyone else in this situation? Has anyone been able to get a better resolution with BMW?

So what was the original price as we just ordered ours yesterday would like to compare with what we gave been quoted in Cdn dollars the interesting thing is the Canadian version is priced less than the US given the current exchange rate so it doesn’t surprise me BMW moved the price up

Did anyone try talking to the BMW itself or posting a tweet about this? Sometimes tweeting your issues help as the problems and the offered solutions are visible to everyone.

For the price increase I was told that the base price is now $93K, that the Premium Enhanced package stays at $9900 but that it now requires the Dynamic Handling package at $4650 which has the air suspension and rear wheels steering which were included in the Premium pkg before...

I got rid of the laser lights to compensate a bit.

The good news is that I got a build slot in July which is better than no build slot at all 😅

That might be a good idea. I have no experience with twitter - is there a BMW Canada Corporate account that anyone can send a tweet to?

For xDrive50 air suspension and 4-wheel steering is standard not in the package and will stay as standard I was told. For xDrive40 it was as a separate option for $1500

Uhm not what I was told and I have xDrive50. The package that includes them is called ZDE Dynamic Handling Package and is mandatory if you choose ZGT Premium Enhanced Package (as well as 5AU driving assistant pro at $2K and 6UA Gesture Control at $250 which I already had and a new one 6PA Personal eSim at $400)

I see you are in USA and I believe your new car situation is not the same as here. Here since the past months, getting a new car whether it's electric or not has been very difficult so if I refuse it, I won't be able to find an easy replacement unfortunately... (and also I just can't wait for it to arrive!!!) 😂

I placed my deposit April 2nd this year and my car already went into production surprisingly since originally was supposed to be one year wait time. But spoke to my sales guy recelty and he assured me not to worry about the price increase since I already have an agreement before the price increase. And I only heard it went up by only $1,000 for 2023! So not sure what your dealer is trying to do here, sounds very strange.

I have a long term relationship with my salesman, I know he's not trying to screw me but I'll check to see, perhaps his dealership is getting screwed. Doesn't make sense your car is already in production while I gave my deposit in November and my car will only get in production in July and be a 2023

Is yours a 2022 or 2023? If it's already in production it may be a 2022 model which wouldn't have the price increase.
