How to Track a New BMW Order

by Peter Grant

Ordering a new BMW can be an exciting event from the time you plan and order the car to the time that you receive it. To help buyers learn more about what stage of production their new car is in, BMW offers online order tracking. Once buyers register at BMW's website and create a personalized account, they can enter in the vehicle identification number, VIN, of their new car and follow it through the different stages of production.

Click on the "My Account" link on BMW's North American website.

Log in to "My Account" by entering your username and password. If you do not have one, follow the registration links to register on the site.

Click on "Track Your BMW" in the upper right corner of the "My Account Overview" screen, and, when prompted, enter the VIN of your newly ordered car.

Look at the progress bar, which is located at the middle of the page, below the photo of your car, to see where in the production queue your car is sitting. An icon of a BMW appears in the bar that represents the car's current production stage.
