IMHO just keep the car you have and be happy. Certainly ask for a reduction to reflect the 09 plate if that was stipulated on the contract, but as has already been said - dont get too bent ut of shape on the resale of a new car. When I buy new cars Ijust try to crunch them as much as I can with the idea in mind that I am about to tear up many thousands of dollars

Lookup your VIN on realoem.com, that will tell you what the build date is.

Tried realoem.com - unfortunately not found - must be too new for their databases.

Have had several searches of ASAP (BMW Group After Sales Access Portal) database - pic enclosed - says very clearly BUILD DATE 23/12/2009, hence my argument that they have not met the terms and conditions of the contract I signed for the purchase of a 2010 BUILD DATE vehicle. Even their sales invoice specifically said production date 2010.

I have made the offer to either a) order me a new vehicle, or b) refund me $6K which I don't think is unreasonable given that at the time I signed the contract in Nov 2009, BMW were doing deals wherein you could get minimum $5K off a 2009 build vehicle without any negotiation! or c) refund all my money in full!! Unfortunately my financiers paid the $130+K for the vehicle on the Friday before I went to take delivery of the vehicle Saturday and found the build date sticker being Dec 09 contrary to my contract and invoice!

Still awaiting their response to my demands - hopefully by tomorrow!
