How long does production take?
 
My new X3 moved from the "order" step to the "production" step. Does anyone know how long the production phase runs? I've read that it actually takes only 36 hours to build the X3.

factoring in President''s Weekend, my X3 went into production on February 15th and was completed on the February 22nd (now just waiting for it to be released for delivery). This is based on information from the 800 # and the BMW website which, as I've read elsewhere, are not exactly always up to date.

Enjoy your new X3!

Mine was in "on order" status from Dec 5th through Feb 9th. It got to my dealership yesterday. Individual times vary significantly. Your CA should be able to give you a ballpark figure.

Thanks for the info everyone.

Mine was in the "order" phase only two weeks and they are expecting delivery on or about March 21st.........

My production time was about 6 days. From the day I ordered my x3 to picking it up from my dealer in Phoenix, it was just under 4 weeks.

FYI- I have been driving my 35i for one week and I love it.

We ordered ours on 1/15 and took delivery 2/21.

Dealer told me they are running about 30 days out from placing order.

Ordered on 13th or 14th (being Monday) and it should be here Monday 3/7. 3 weeks on the dot beginning to finish

My wife and I were just talking about Chapman this weekend. We lived in Gilbert AZ 9 years shovels took our Z3 there for Dinan upgrades (chip and CAI) plus a SuperSprint exhaust. Nice dealership then. I am glad they are still good!

I haven't had good service with them on the phone or in their parts department, but thats the extent of my business with them. Their new place looks really clean and nice
We have been going to N. Scottsdale for a long time and they treat us well.

It can be tough to pick a dealer. I had one bad experience with Scottsdale BMW over 5 years ago. But it really isn't fair to judge them based on that. When I was negotiating for my last 328i, Chapman gave me a better deal, so I went with them. I live a couple of hours north of the Valley, both dealerships are equal driving time for me from where I live.

I have had a little experience with Chapman's service department and the manager of the service department there, Doug, was outstanding.

Almost here!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
Looks like my X3 will arrive at the dealership just shy of 4 weeks......I think that is pretty good. I liked seeing the production video. Nice marketing tool!!!!!!

Can't wait to get behind the wheel, even though I'm giving up my E36 M3...............

wavewuver 03-14-2011 10:29 AM

Picked up my X3 on friday.....love it. One day shy of 4 weeks from order to delivery......

Mine took (6) weeks from signing the order to driving away from the dealer's lot.
Actual, physical production took (32) hours according to the production video time stamps.

Almost through the 1200 mile break-in period - Can't wait to begin to enjoy the performance. Keeping the revs down can be a challenge sometimes.

when we touring Munich plant, we was told it's take 1.5 day from start to finish 325 or 330 sedan or wagon.

Except during Octoberfest when half the plant is off drinking beer, and the other half is at home with a hangover.:yikes:

they take us to workers cafeteria (was hot July day) - and there was - right near coke - a beer dispenser. Workers can get beer in cafeteria right in the middle of the plant. :thumbup:
If that was in Russia - no one work - everyone will stay in line for beer. :rofl:
