Thanks again. I am certain there will be more to learn from you good folks as I count the days till she finally arrives.

In the meanwhile, I received a pleasant surprise from my dealer yesterday. The car has gone into production and the folks from BMW Individual are constructing a personalized presentation box made out of the car's Piano Black trim material lined with the interior merino platinum leather to hold the key fobs. Apparently, this is due to the order being the first BMW Individual 6 series coupe for the region. Have previously heard of such boxes but never seen one in person. Will post pics when it gets delivered.

Yes, the 373m wheels were my first choice. Unfortunately, they only come with the M-sport package which means I have to give up all the BMW Individual options including the illuminated BMW Individual door sills. I will find a way to swap them out after the car is delivered.

Confirmed that cars from July production onwards will receive the same N63tu engine that they put in the GC. So yes, it will be the 330kw (445hp) version. That's one of the reasons why my order was held up till now.

Received a call from my dealer today informing that the personalized BMW Individual presentation box has arrived ahead of time. They are still awaiting the key fobs and of course, the vehicle itself, before officially presenting the box with the vehicle. In the meanwhile, here's a sneak preview.

Thanks guys. Would have been tougher getting to this point without the advice and information you folks are generously sharing.

The box was a pleasant surprise after an extraordinarily long ordering process spanning 8 months. As it turned out, despite all that time, it still will be the first order to land in my region, hence the box. The vehicle is now on a cargo ship on the way from Singapore to HK.

For those of you like me who are still waiting for your car to arrive, you can actually track where it currently is using a number of websites, depending on the vessel. Just get your dealer to tell you the name of the vessel delivering the car and start tracking it at one of the following:

www.shipfinder.com
www.vesselfinder.com
www.marinetraffic.com

Shown below is a sample from the ShipFinder iPhone app.

Happy tracking!

Tracking my car was one of the best parts. Of course, I got it back in April, and only had to wait a little over a month.

Has the wait gotten that long, really?

I started working on the order with my dealer before Christmas last year. We went back and forth between the dealer and BMW AG for months. In the process, there were countless hours of GOOGLING and 6Post trawling (learned a fair bit from you guys, especially Southern). The order was finally accepted by BMW AG in July. At that point, I could practically see the actual vehicle parts just by looking at the SA Option codes (reminded me of Neo in the last chapter of The Matrix). Longest process for a BMW order I ever had to deal with. Just glad that the ordeal is over.

She's finally here folks but still being held hostage at the dealer's this weekend. Need a few more days to deal with the paperwork next week before she can be released into the wild. Had the opportunity to snap a few photos at the dealer's. Thought I should post a few with angles that are seldom seen on an Individual 650i. Enjoy!

Thanks and agree. There were nothing worthwhile from the factory so I just left it stock for the order. Will replace wheels and brakes once I get the car.

Thank you for the compliments Southern and Wasabi. Once again, would not have gotten here without the posts and information shared by you folks. Hope I can do my part in return to help future 6er owners.

Thanks djsaad1. Yours should be close to arrival if I remember correctly.

The night vision remained on the order. It is a little difficult to spot these sensors on a dark exterior car but they are there. The ones below are for the night vision and the parking assistance.

Nice, it's not as visible as I thought it would be. I still have a week 48 production week, so it probably won't arrive before Jan.

Does everyone that orders an individual package get the individual box? I haven't seen that before. I hope I get one.
