Good for you Nitros, I know the feeling. Have a check off delivery list prepared for Tuesday and take your time and don't hurry going over your new machine. Excited for you!!! ENJOY THE HECK OUT OF IT.

I know, we were **** scared. I even opened the door and looked for the keys. The seats were all covered with plastics. I wonder how long does it take the dealer to prepare the car for delivery.

It came with Bridgestong Dueler H/L 400 RFT tires.

CA told me that I'm on track for a delivery later this week. Car should arrive at the dealer tomorrow, and I'm hoping to pick it up a day or two later. Does anyone else on this thread have an update? Nitros, you should have picked up last week. I guess you are too busy driving to post.

Did your CA tell you what date your X5 got loaded on the train and shipped out of SC? My CA called on Sat and said it was loaded on the train and left on the 22nd. Any idea how long it might be until delivery for me at this point? WANT X5!


***EDIT***

Just saw your post here - http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...7&postcount=39

So it looks like about 2-3 weeks more for me then since I am in Cali too....the wait is killing me! LOLZ

If it arrives tomorrow as suggested, it will be 15 days from getting on a train to hitting the dealer in NorCal. Amazingly, it'll only be 23 days since I originally ordered.

That's great - 23 days is super short.

Yes, I picked up my X5 last week. Didn't really get a chance to drive much as I had to fly out of Charlotte due to a recent job opportunity. Will be back to Charlotte tomorrow. Will post pics and AD report.

Here are some initial pics at dealer.

We pick up our 2012 35D PCD on July 12, two weeks from Thursday.
Sapphire Black Metallic, Nevada Oyster Leather, Prem, Nav, Prem Sound, Tech, Sport, Comfort, Multi Seats & AD pkgs.

Anticipation is starting to build. I think we are catching BMWitus.

Will post experience at PCD and drive home to Atlanta.
This is our first BMW so not much comparison to offer relative to other models.

Picked mine up on Sat., the 23rd. It was released to carrier on the 4th and arrived the 19th, so including the slight holdup with the recall, it didn't take too long once it got moving.

So, I picked mine up last Wednesday (the 25th), which was exactly 3.5 weeks from the day that I ordered. This is my third new bimmer, and it's amazing how fast the ones out of Spartanburg arrive to the West Coast. I have been pretty busy over the past week, so I haven't had a chance to write anything on my experiences or even take proper photos yet, but I love the car so far. Coming from an E46 and E83, I'm amazed by the technology upgrades, but I'm quickly getting used to all of the gadgetry. I also am getting used to owning my first diesel, and I am digging the fuel economy. I am dying to take a long drive to really break her in, so I might have to do a road trip this upcoming weekend. Here is a quick photo taken on my Iphone the night of delivery, but it really doesn't do the car any justice. It is a stunning ride really, and I'm quite happy with the color combination. I hope the rest of you are enjoying your X5's or will be soon.

Lance
