Patiently waiting on 2011 x5 501

I placed my order for my 2011 x5 on May 19th. I spoke with my CA this morning and he says the car shipped yesterday. My question is, does anyone know how long it takes to get from the plant to Texas?

It was twelve days from the plant to me in Baton Rouge, La. Way too long. Hope you do better.

That's a good joke on his part. 10 days from SC to MD.

Mein Auto: x5 50i
Ordered my 50i on 5/7/10, was completed on 6/4/10 and was delivered to my dealer today for a Friday 6/18/10 pick-up. Don't waste your time tracking it after completion in SC, once it is shipped you will not know anything until it arrives at the dealer. Bottom line is that they will not send empty trucks, so you need to wait until a truck is full of vehicles for transport.
It sucks to wait, but come Friday I will be very happy.

Damn whats the story here? Mine was completed on 6/1 and yours beat mine to Long Island.

At least you get yours for your B-Day, as I doubt I would get mine tomorrow.

Sorry Rob, happy birthday & hope you get the call. Friend of mine ordered a 35i on 5/21 (exactly 2 weeks after mine)
and his 35i was on my truck that came in today. Ask your CA to check the site & see if your dates are actual or estimated.

Thanks,
Ill have to put the pressure on tomorrow. My CA has a tendency of not looking to get actual true information, and just likes to give you a spool of words out of his head.

It took 10 days from "released to a carrier" to actually arriving at my dealership. Picked mine up last night, near Baltimore, MD.

It's pouring rain here this morning and expected to all day. I'll take pics tomorrow when I can pull it out of the garage and clean up the ridiculous MESS that the dealership prep department did with their crappy wax and tire dressing (which sprayed all over the fenders and windows). Already asking for "undoing" instructions on the Detail forum. It's a shame they can't prep it the way we would at our own homes!

I ordered my X5 5.0 on 5/31, which was my birthday, the order did not get placed for a couple of days due to the holiday weekend, it shows in production as we speak and my CA claims I'll have around the 20th? I guess we will see.. This morning our 2007 X5 4.8 almost didn't start, I think it knows its getting traded.

Mein Auto: 335xi - when it runs
Lucky you. I ordered mine on 28 April, and it's stuck in eternal "Scheduled for Production with no confirmed production date yet". Been that way for three weeks. Dealer has come back with all sorts of excuses thus far- Transmission was on backorder was the most amusing. Anyone seeing similar delays?

They put mine on a train and shipped it to Oxnard CA. From there it took 2 days to arrive in Bellevue, WA on a truck.

The entire process, my order to me driving it off the lot, took 74 days. This is for an order which took place back at the beginning of December 2009.

Side note: You will not be disappointed. This is the finest automobile I have ever driven. Every morning it leaves me smiling.

I had lunch with a buddy of mine yesterday who has a 2007 M3 (new V8 version) and he was amazed at the advances in technology shown in the X5.

Your patience will be rewarded.

Good luck to you...

On other thing, make sure you are tracking your order via the automated phone system. I found the online tracking to be very inaccurate.

Anything word yet cduchesne? The website and my dealer says it shows in the dealer inventory, but it really isn't. All I hear is any day now it should be here. I think you and I are "The last of the Mohicans". Seems as everyone else in the June 1st production week received theirs already.

Happy belated birthday by the way. It's all going to be good when the day comes (which should be ANY DAY now) and you gonna be soooooo happy then. Plus you will have less miles then mine.

Just found out from my CA today that mine went into production yesterday, 6/21 with a scheduled completion of 6/29. I placed the order on 6/1. CA is expecting it around July 9th.....we shall see. I'm just happy I have a VIN. Been tired of the same recording on the 800# as well.
