800 number still says "in production" with an estimated completion date of 8/17. I am going to believe them and hope they can release the car and get it to me next week ( probably wishful thinking ).

Logistical question...obviously on the west coast, they train cars out. However, on the east coast / midwest - do they load up trains and move vehicles to hubs before shipping OR do they rely on individual trucks?

Vehicle has now moved from production Begins to finishing touches per website. Dealer says it may arrive on Saturday, but they'd need a day to prepare it for me to pick up. Grantsi, my completion estimate date was 3 before yours, so I would think next week is likely... But who really knows till it actually shows up.

Ordered July 27th, just went into production. Phone says completion scheduled for the 23rd. One question. I ordered a 35i with the M package. On the website, under the M sport package for my car, it just seems to list all the available options. This includes 'Sport Suspension Delete.' My build sheet from the dealer definitely doesn't say that and I ordered the Dynamic Handling Package (which removes the sport suspension delete automatically when you spec out the car on their website). DHP also shows up on the build sheet on the website. Any reason for concern or is this normal? It also lists both the high gloss roof rails and roof rails in Aluminum Satin...so clearly there's something inconsistent on the website description of the car.

Mein Auto: 2013 X3 M Sport
Here's what the website says on mine:

M Sport Package
Sport Suspension delete
Dynamic Damper Control
High-gloss Roof Rails
Roof rails in Aluminum Satin
Performance Control
Sport seats
Aerodynamic kit
Anthracite headliner
Shadowline exterior trim

I really have no idea why they delete the sport suspension like that and wondered why they did that myself. I wouldn't worry too much about what the website says. You will get the sport suspension, they didn't really delete it. And I remember now being confused about the roof rails too because mine says the high gloss and aluminum satin. As far as my eyes can tell, my car came with aluminum satin roof rails. I'm not sure if there would be a difference in the 28i and 35i, as I have the 28i. If you don't have it already, ask your CA for a "Vehicle Inquiry." I'm not sure if there is a better name for it, but it shows your exactly what was ordered and that is exactly how it will be delivered, regardless of what the website says. I know it's hard to not believe what the website says.

In most markets M sport includes "sport suspension", but not here. Apparently BMW has decided that U.S. customers don't like the firmer ride, so they delete the sport suspension from the build, and provide the standard suspension instead. Whether or not you have the M Sport package, adding the Dynamic Handling package provides dynamic dampers.

Although when you check the box for the DHP on the website, it will automatically uncheck the box for sport suspension delete. Oh well. Either way looks like no reason for me to be worried. Thanks.

It is short but shows what the X3 can do. I hope we never get in a situation with 2 wheels in the air, but the X3 can handle it. The factory tour was fun, but I'm an engineer so I'm a little biased. Throughout the X3 assembly line I only spotted one Blue Water so my wife's will be pretty rare I think. It was interesting to see left hand and right hand drives intermixed on the line. The robotics are pretty cool but a fair amount is still done by hand. They do a lot to reduce boredom and repetative use problems, such as rotating through 4 jobs each shift.

I'm already thinking about when I get to replace my vehicle with a BMW, after owning one for 2 days. There was a Vermillion Red ready for delivery that looked nice, I think M Sport. My wife got this one and I got her old Explorer, which I figure I will keep 4 more years. Maybe less now that I have the bug!

Mmlocke, I can't seem to load pics from my iPhone onto this page. PM me your email and I'm happy to forward them along. You are going to LOVE the black carbon. Photos just don't do it justice.
