So, just a basic question. How long did it take from the day it was ordered till it was delivered? I know that the dealership will tell you 6-8 weeks, just want to know the numbers.

I ordered my M Sport on Friday, 7/27. It went into production the following Monday and it was completed a week later. The car sat for a couple weeks awaiting a ride, but it finally shipped in late August and is expected to make port this week. (The original ETA at port was 9/12, but I didn't track it.) I'm hoping to take delivery next week if the test drive is satisfactory and the dealer and I can work out the paddle shifter issue.

let us know how you "work out" the paddle shifter issue!

The key is getting an allocation slot from the dealer as soon as possible. They should be able to tell you which week of production they can give you before you place the order. From that week, count another 6-8 weeks until you get it (depending on where you live).

The car arrived earlier than expected - my CA just emailed a couple pictures right after it rolled off the carrier.

Looks sharp. Which blue is that? The M only color or one of the others?

Every time I think I have the color decided someone posts a picture.....

That's Le Mans Blue, the lightest of the three.

I ordered mine August 31. It went into production the next week. The call in number says estimated completion date is Sep 13 but I just looked it up on the BMW VIN checker and it says it finished production today: Prod.date 2012-09-12. Now the longest wait to travel from Bimmerhaven to California.

Ordered mine on the 8/25th. Completed production on the 7th. Hoping that it gets on the next ship out which will be 9/16 so I'm looking at getting it around october 6th. But thats IF it gets on the next ship out and doesn't run into any delays.

Ordered 8/27 and finished production 9/6. It's been sitting at port, so I hope it will make that 9/16 ship mentioned above. Early October delivery would be great!

It's on the ship! My X1 is on Courage. So, ordered 8/27, finished production 9/6 and loaded 9/16. ETA 9/28. Assuming another week from port to final dealer prep and pickup.

I ordered my x1 sdrive on 8/20 and it finished production on 9/13. Then it sat at the docks until loaded on the Fidelio about 9/25 and due to arrive at Pt. Hueneme 10/20. Should arrive at the dealership by 10/27 but it depends on customs.

Currently the ship is 'out of area' so can't see it on the map - destination is the Panama Canal.

Mine is on Fidelio as well. Hope Tropical Storm Nadine doesn't cause a delay

Mine just went into production. Ordered from Beverly Hills BMW 9/22. Didn't hear anything for a few days so started pestering, and just today got the production number. Put it into MyBMW and I see it is already in production. Which is cool but the OCD part of me wanted to see it first in "Order documented" and then move to "Production begins". Oh well! Just glad it's being built...

Ordered from dealer on August 24 and it arrived at the dealership on Oct 1. They had it ready for me to pick it up that day (yesterday.) Soooo . . just a little over five weeks from order to delivery.

Just checked the vessel arrival schedule which is updated up to 10/25. Fidelio is not listed. :dunno: Hope it shows up soon!

Picked up my X1 yesterday. It was ready on Oct.5, so 39 days from order to delivery. It arrived in Baltimore 9/28 and took a week to get to my dealer here in KY. The car is a stunner, BTW!

West Coast deliveries take longer, obviously, with the Panama Canal etc. Read somewhere it's about 25 days from Bremerhaven to Port Hueneme (north of LA).

Also ordered on 8/21. Vehicle completed 9/3, shipped out of Bremerhaven on the NHK Antares Leader 9/15? Arrived at Port Hueneme on 10/9...hopefully it gets up here in the PNW in the next two weeks. You guys on the east coast are lucky!

Just saw on MyBMW my /22 ordered X1 has left production and is "ready to ship." Next freighter for Port Hueneme from Bremerhaven seems scheduled for Saturday 10/20. If my X1 makes it on board, it will be here before Thanksgiving. Gobble gobble!

Is going through the Panama Canal right now....still lists a 10/20 arrival in Pt. Hueneme. This is taking FOREVER! My dealer has four x1s on the lot including one almost identical to the one I ordered except in deep sea blue with red leather. There are dealer pictures and it is a nice color combination - google BMW of Murrieta if you want to see the pics. I'm tempted to just get that one:D Talk about anticipation!!! I'm jealous of all the east coasters.

So if Murrieta BMW is your dealer, they were a little lax in not looking ahead at their scheduled allocation. I know when I initially went to my local dealer in late August and told them what I wanted, they looked at their allocation and said they had nothing coming in like that. Weirdly, instead of telling me to order, they seemed reluctant to do so, and sort of convinced me to choose an X1 that was "sorta" of like what I wanted. That was one they knew would be coming in as of about two weeks ago now. I eventually decided I really wanted what I wanted, and cancelled that deposit to order my X1 from a different dealer. That dealer (Beverly Hills BMW) also looked at all their incoming cars, and maybe incoming cars for all So Cal, and placed the order after confirming nothing like what I wanted was on its way in.

If Murrieta had done that for you and this Deep Sea Blue one was to your liking, you'd be driving it today, I suppose...

No, we did that and there were no cars that were exactly what I wanted so I ordered it 'my way'. But now that the other car is just sitting there.....I'm purposely staying away so I won't be tempted. :)

Somebody may have changed their minds so that car is now available.

Fidelio has just docked in Port Hueneme today. It will be just a few more days until it gets to the dealers and they can prep it for me to pickup by next weekend. I can't wait.

I ordered 9/22. Came out of production 10/10? Somewhere like that. Just discovered that my X1 is on the Topeka, which left Bremerhaven Saturday the 21st. Due into Port Hueneme (on its way to Tacoma) 11/14.

So if I manage to pick it up Saturday 11/17 that will be exactly 8 weeks.

By the way, neither MyBMW or the BMW phone line has the shipping update. But I used that cargo company (Wallenius Wilhelmsen) site to confirm it is on the Topeka. Just use "track and trace" and enter the VIN in the "Cargo ID" field. BMW will probably be updated in another day or so.

Ordered 27-Sept-2012; manufactured 12-Oct-2012; on the Topeka leaving Bremerhaven on 21-Oct-2012; ETA Port Hueneme (Southern California port) 14-Nov-2012. Then add processing time and truck shipment to Roseville, CA. Turkey day probably will be in my hands.

Just went to the Wallenius track and trace page to check in on my X1, one of a couple, at least, from this forum on the Topeka. It had been scheduled to arrive in Port Hueneme 11/14, but as of today it will be a day late - Thursday 11/15.

So this West Coastie now considers Sandy to be the worst ever hurricane. And the Daily Show is cancelled for tonight! Oh the humanity.

The storm is a big deal. It is stronger than the 1938 hurricane that hit New England and the 1938 storm was real wrath of God stuff. NYC has to hope that the storm surge does not get high enough to flood the subway system.

It looks like my car won't be impacted as the rumor mill says the Triton Leader will actually arrive a day early, one week from today....

Tracking my X1 on its journey to Port Hueneme (and I notice others are also) ... even though the ship is out of range of the AIS land based location systems, you can catch up with it as it squawks out its GPS location periodically.

Use this URL:
http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/datasheet.aspx?MMSI=232872000&TIMESTAMP=5&menuid=&datasource=POS&app=&mode=&B1=Search

And click on the most recent (top of the list) coordinates, which will then map it for you.

As of 2145 hrs UTC on 30-oct-2012 (-7 hours for Pacific Daylight, so 1445 hrs Pacific) it looks like the Topeka is in the middle of its transit of the Atlantic.

Just trying to assist the other OCD types out there waiting on their new ride.

Thanks for that link! I hope those seas aren't too rough...

When I first looked at the X1 my initial color choice was Cashmere Silver. Lighter colors are more user-friendly for a lazy man such as myself, and the conventional glacier silver is handsome but silver cars are so dang common. Ended up ordering the Midnight Blue though...

Well we have a couple weeks, and a couple days, to go till the Topeka makes port...
