Delay in production?

I placed an order to build an X5 50i on Nov 23rd and when I call BMWNA, the automated message says the following "vehicle is scheduled for production, but no production date has been set". Any thoughts on whether this is uncommon or not? From reading other posts, it sounds like X5s have gone into production within a week of ordering.

ask your CA for the exact week of your allocation slot.

when i placed my order, my CA was able to show me on his computer screen that my allocation was slotted for the following week.

I asked my CA and he said there isn't any other information available. The only information I've gotten from him is the production number. Kind of frustrating. . .

Your CA is either ignorant or lazy. There should be a build week associated with your production number, and that is something they can look up.

Your CA can look up the production status via a vehicle inquiry; status.

There is a third option (which I take heat on by dealers)...that is the CA is lying.

He knows that they have eiher NOT decided WHICH production slot they will give you, or he is purposefully not telling you. Indeed, his boss may have booked the sale and is just waiting to see which production slot he puts you in based on how profitable your deal is, versus others. He may have you in a February slot, waiting to see what he needs to put in to make his year end numbers- if higher paying deals come in, you may be SOL


When you cut a deal you MUST include 'which week of production do I get' as part of the negotiation.

There are MANY threads on this. Many. One guy got jerked around for 2-3 months with the same "Oh, you know BMW" story...then he found out he was being played. All that time gone.

Tell him "I want a confirmed production week listed on dealer speed by close of business ___, or the deal is cancelled"

I was able to get a confirmation. It went into production this week with an estimated completion date of 12/14. Hopefully I'll have it by Christmas. Thanks everyone for their help.

Tell him to go to dealerspeed.net and go to the vehicle inquiry page, more specifically the status tab. Here is a screenshot where the information is listed. Tell him also to send you a screenshot of this page to prove it.
