I ordered my 535i on a Friday and was in production status by Monday. It depends on your dealer's allocation. They modified an existing order for me. Takes about 2 weeks in production, a few days to reach the port. Being on the east coast, my ship took 13 days to the US, then a week from the VPC to my dealer.

First ordered 535 x-drive on August 6th; loaded on ship Sep. 13, left port Sep. 15, to arrive in Baltimore port Sep. 29. Figure 7-10 days for delivery to Minneapolis.

The details on when production actually commenced are fuzzy, except that the build process was one week. The dealer can give you lots more details than the website.

Good luck.

Call your dealer and ask when it will reach production status. Usually a large dealer will have stock orders already in process and will simply modify one to match your specs. Kind of strange that it is taking so long to go to 150 status. Don't be afraid to ask for weekly status updates. You're paying a lot for a car and they should be proactive with you. My sales person sent me weekly scans of the official order status. Don't let them tell you they "don't know". They log directly into the BMW NA ordering system and they can see everything. Also, be sure they provide you a copy of the official order spec sheet from the BMW order site.

I'll post both inside and out and see if I can get some with the HUD (daylight and night shot) and night vision activated. The dealer says the September upgrades are great, and he has a lot a credibility so far.

Essentially, it lets you stream music directly to your car via bluetooth without being tethered using the USB or AUX. My iPhone will never leave my shirt pocket!
