Production Video Question

Hey guys. I am picking up my X3 today (14 days after production started FYI) and wondered about the video. I haven't gotten an email, but under the digital library tab on mybmw.com there is a drawing of my car and a note saying watch your personal video but no link (just a wallpaper download tab). Did you guys have a link?

Received email a couple days ago advising video was ready- it actually wasn't ready until today. About 1 month after placing order and 2 weeks after delivery. It's okay- 90% of the approximate 4 minute video is canned, then they showed my car's sunroof being installed by the robot, later in the video the windshield robotic installation and at the very end my SAV touching the ground for the first time and moving on it's own. Again, a bit enjoyable but maybe not what you're expecting.

It took about a week for the video of my X3 to show up. BMW sent me an email when it was posted.

Just bought a 2011 CPO, can I get a link to the build video for the car or can only the original purchaser?

I have some bad news. When my advisor called yesterday to tell us that our vehicle had entered production he also informed us that individual production videos at the Spartanburg plant had been discontinued as of 1 April 2013.

I did not talk with him personally, so I did not have a chance to ask him if it was just the X3 line or all Spartanburg and if it was permanent or just temporary.

It might be temporary because Spartanburg is undergoing a re-tooling soon for the new F-series X5 and expansion to add the X4: (https://www.bmwusfactory.com/bmw_art...plant-in-2012/).
