I ordered an I4 M Sport 40 in Nov 2021. 6 months later told that a code 047 (No quota) is against the order. Anyone have an idea as to current delivery times for orders placed last November?

If you are in status 047 it's not really a matter of when you placed the order but when your dealer gets an allocation. That could be weeks or it could be months, it's generally based on their past sales performance and it also definitely depends how many orders at your particular dealer are in front of you.

Thanks for reply. Was given a delivery by end May 2022 when ordered last November but that looks highly unlikely now!

Yeah - you want to be in 111 or even better 112. Unfortunately 047 literally means the factory has not even accepted the order at all yet.

If you were going to get delivery by end of May I would expect your order to already be in production and in the 150s at this point if not 190 (production complete).

The update from my dealer last week showed status 1200 not 112. Is this the same.

Should be going into production 23 May with a delivery planned for 22 June.

Ordered mid Sept last year with a planned delivery of January.

112 is the same as 1200 yes and should mean that a production week is locked in with the factory. The order can technically go back to 1100/111 if there's a factory issue but this should be relatively rare.

4 weeks from production start to delivery is a reasonable estimate.

Thanks for the confirmation

I asked for another update from the dealer this afternoon.

Fingers crossed for June.

If you go to the BMW Configurator and start configuring a car, you should get a blue icon pop up in the bottom right of your screen, you can use that to talk to BMW Online Genius who are open quite a wide range of hours and can give you the 3 or 4 digit status code for your order number. Don't have to wait for your dealer if you do it that way.

Make sure you turn off any ad blocker in the configurator or it might not pop up.

Just been given a production date of w/c 12th September. Assuming that this is correct it will mean a 10 month gap between placing my order and production compared to 6 months initially quoted

I preordered 6th June, real order placed in August and I was quoted 30th December 2021 delivery time. I pick up my car on Monday - almost a year after the preorder.

Also might want to check your order depending on your options as I was reading on another forum that a bunch of e40s have just had options removed (Parking Assistant Plus and Driving Assistant Pro).
