Anyone take delivery of their 2010 X5D yet?

Just checking in to see if anyone took delivery of the 2010 X5's yet. Mine is in the paint shop with a completion date of 10/20/09. Just wondering how long it takes to get to the dealer after completion. Thanks

I am still confirmed for PCD on 11/2 as late as today but am incredibly nervous they might try to push me back because of the delays. Also, I "HEARD" someone took delivery and was calling BMW Assist for a tow in less than 80 miles but I have not seen the actual post yet myself...

Well the performance center delivery experience was all that I wanted it to be and more. Points all around to the PCD staff for a great day. Unfortunately, during the drive back to Columbia SC, the car shut itself down on the interstate and would not restart. Engine malfunction--reduced power as IDRIVE put it. So we were on the SOS with BMW roadside assistance for 30 minutes, waited for a tow for 1.5 hrs and finally got it towed to the dealer late last night.

It was a good thing Donnie showed me how to disengage the transmission manually into neutral and use the tow insert. So with only 71 miles on the odometer my car is in the shop. I'm hoping it's something simple like a sensor or something. Will have to wait and see as they are diagnosing it today.

I would have pushed it back to the plant and asked for a new one.
