The number of people receiving communications from their SA (both here and bimmerpost) begs to differ with your assessment. Are they listed on the BMW recall or NHTSA website? No, they apparently aren't. I've checked both for my VIN and there isn't anything listed. Can BMW issue a stop sale for another reason? I'm sure they can, it's their car until I buy it.
So for whatever reason they want to prevent having to recall my car back and instead are holding it hostage. Fingers crossed that whatever the reason is, it's a software fix. I'm sure we'll get more info tomorrow.
Well it’s bad news after all. My dialogue with my salesperson:
Me:There is some chatter on iXforums threads about a Stop Sale on the iX. However there’s no evidence of it on either the BMW recall or NHTSA sites. I assume it’s just social media chatter and there are no problems?
Reply: I will check on it as soon as I free up. Forums have a way of knowing things as soon (or earlier) than we do. / Then: Yes your car and many others just were placed on stop-sale. I will update once I have more information
Me: Oh oh. How come. That means once it reaches you I can’t take delivery?!
Reply: Not until the stop sale is cleared. It’ll sit at the Baltimore port until fixed. I’ll email you the bulletin.
