For those who have built their X1
 
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).

Ordered on July 9th, arrived at dealer August 14th, took delivery on the 15th.

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.

lovemygsp 09-13-2012 08:25 PM

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.

X1FirstBMW 09-14-2012 03:31 AM

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!

X1FirstBMW 09-17-2012 08:14 PM

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.

lovemygsp 09-20-2012 08:37 AM

Mine is on the florida highway. Bummer our cars can't party together! Mine comes in the 8/27 to GA and I'm on in SC so heres to hoping I have it by the 1st.

the_fox 09-20-2012 12:13 PM

Athens Highway here. Produced 8/29. Left Bremerhaven on 9/12. Estimated arrival in Baltimore by 9/24.

Lots of cars in the middle of the ocean...

lovemygsp 09-22-2012 09:21 AM

Too bad none of ours are together. I hope everyone's comes in early! (wishful thinking right. ;) ).

investor27 09-25-2012 06:31 AM

Ordered on July 8th, the X1 arrived in Baltimore on August 16th, was at the dealership here in the Midwest a week later for delivery.

Wolfex 09-27-2012 10:18 AM

Just confirmed my car is on the Fidelio slowly making its way to California. Departed Bremerhaven 9/27 and scheduled to arrive in Port Hueneme 10/20.

Mgcmdw 09-27-2012 11:46 AM

Order to arrival time...
 
I placed my order on August 4 and picked up my car in Nashua, NH, on September 18. Glacier Silver x-line xdrive 28i with ultimate, cold weather, lighting packages also matte silver roof rails. Brown nevada leather, matte wood trim inside. Love the car.

Took me about 6 weeks

skndchanzs 10-01-2012 11:56 AM

Anxiously waiting
 
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

skndchanzs 10-01-2012 08:41 PM

Uh oh.....didn't know about Nadine! Keeping my fingers crossed.

Wolfex 10-01-2012 11:11 PM

Thera is another storm forming in the Atlantic. Safe travels Fidelio.

mullini 10-02-2012 12:08 PM

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.
