No "Holds" on my 35d either

Just got update from our salesman. 35d is at the VPC as of 8/8/14 and the "Holds" line is now empty whereas before it read "Holds: Maroney/EPA, Release".

Should confirm that 35d has passed EPA...

Mine has said "Holds: Monroney/EPA, Release" since the start of build and still says that as of 11am cdt this morning. Do not believe that any of the X5s have passed EPA.

My build sheet still says "Holds: Monroney/EPA, release" on it. Completion scheduled for tomorrow (8/7/14). Would assume that means that EPA has not passed yet.

Was just looking at my production sheet that my CA sent me and it says:

"Holds: Monroney/EPA, Release"

Great find

Imsachin - You Rock! Great find. This is huge, particularly in light of the new transmission that supposedly "improves 0-60 times and efficiency" and is on the 2015s. Thought there might be extra...

In another thread you intimated you wanted to do PCD. Wondering if that's the way you decided to go. Any updates on your order?

Also, anyone else with a 35d on order jump to 150 and...

Please keep us informed as to production status so we can all figure how many days it takes to manufacture a new X5.

It costs $900

It costs $900. The configurator shows it as $0 until you tick the box and then it adds the $900 charge to your total.

Again, well worth the upgrade. Good luck.

The Adaptive M-Suspension is a worthwhile upgrade for $900. It will actually make the car MORE comfortable because the back will be on adaptive shocks instead of steel...
