Delivery Timeframe?
 
Ordered my 2013 X1 on July 9. Midnight Blue/Coral Red, Sport Line, xDrive, every package except for lighting. Production was finished on July 19th and now is sitting at the port, waiting transport. I read somewhere that they are holding up on US shipping until the 'official' release date in September. Does anyone know if that is correct? I was excited that it made it that far that quickly, but now may have to wait regardless. :dunno:

It will be September by the time the car arrived in US. I know the wait is unbearable, but waiting is part of the fun, and it will make you appreciate your car even more.

I had placed my order late June and won't get to see it until October 12 in Munich. Then, there's another 8-10 weeks for the car to make its way to me. I can use the car as my wife's Christmas present. It's like killing 2 birds with 1 stone.

Hey if you do not mind me asking how much to you end up paying?:D

With the metallic paint, Sport Line, xdrive, Cold Weather pkg, Ultimate pkg, Satellite radio, and destination, it stickered for $43,395. Invoice is $40,070. I paid $40,800 (less taxes). First time out of my three BMW factory orders I did not have to pay sticker. They did pretty well on my 2010 Audi A4 trade also. I knew my numbers going in and basically had the attitude of they were not 'selling' me a car. I knew exactly what I wanted and they were merely placing an order for me and prepping the car when it arrived. They were more than accomodating. I was in and out of there within an hour. Sewickley BMW, awesome dealership so far.

How do I find out when the next open ED slot in Munich is?

IE - will my earliest Munich date be after yours, or did you wish to be later?

Where did you read this?

While our cars wait at port, I hope they aren't exposed to the elements...

on some other BMW blog, can't even remember which. then another said they ordered at the end of June and it was just placed on a cargo ship. I believe shipping from Germany to Baltimore is approx. 12 days, then a few more on the covered car carrier to your dealer. My thought too was that it was sitting on some seagull-ridden dock, covered in crap, waiting to board :rofl:

I got 9/28 pick up at first, but since the Octoberfest runs from 9/16-10/3, it was very expensive for the lodging and air fare. So I changed it to after my daughter's birthday.:thumbup:

When you place your ED order, you'll have to give them 3 prefered pick up dates. If you want to pick up as soon as possible, then you can try giving them 3 dates about 5-7 weeks away. If they can't do it, they will come back to you.
