Don't get me wrong, I still love the x3. I'm just thinking out aloud that if I had another go at choosing a BMW what other car would I love to try

As far as the loaner is concerned, I figured its worth asking for. I was planning to sell my existing car this week once I got my BMW (still have a buyer lined up, who may not wait too long)

What is the difference between what that guy is offering you and the trade in value the BMW dealership will give you? Take a look at sales tax you pay with no trade in and with trade in. It may be more advantageous to trade the car in then private sell.

Hard to say "if I had another go" when you never finished your first go.

Hi Durkis,

Your car looks beautiful! The X-line trim package further adds to the beauty of your car. Congratulations!!

I have the exact same leather color and trim. How do you like it?

We absolutely love the Mojave. Like the tan color too, but the floor carpeting was tan as well, and with prior experience with light colored flooring it gets dirty. With Mojave it's a black floor and a unique leather that goes perfectly with the bronze paint

I have a feeling that the Mojave color looks much lighter than what they showed me in those tile cards at the dealership. I also did not get to see the color in person but felt that it would be the best choice for my mineral silver exterior.

Mein Auto: X3 M-sport
MY14 X3, Production starts April 2013

After a lot of back and forth choosing b/w reordering my X3 vs going for a 2010 M3 or 2012 Z4, I decided to go for the X3. Needed a family car to replace my existing one.

After the delivery fiasco (car totaled on arrival) I opted for performance center delivery.

2014 X3 35i, AW, oyster, m-sport, technology, premium, cold weather, driver assistance. No premium sound.

All this for 300 over invoice.

Hi Sfiermon,

Where are getting this detailed information from? Do you have to talk to the representative? The automated information just tells me that its on production and will be completed 4/25. Thanks!

Makes sense, Thanks. From your previous posts, I recall that your car is supposed to be out of production today. Is that right?

Total production time on the X3 only takes 40 hours. They don't mess around.

Just ordered my MY14 35i in grey / nevada black and fineline wave with tech, driver's assist, top-view, and premium. Have a production number and am tracking. Build week is May 6, should be at dealership by early June at the latest.

First BMW! Very excited. Thanks to the forum members for all the guidance.

MY14 X3, Production starts April 2013

So it looks like my car will be out of production by the end of tomorrow. Does anyone in the CT/Boston/NH area have an idea of how long does it usually take to get to the dealer once the production ends?

My dealer says 2 weeks but that seems too long to me.

Hi All, Picked my X3 up from Roadshow BMW in Memphis on Saturday. Loving it more everyday. Gave up my 2010 328xi. The X3 is a much better ride. Config on mine is cold weather package, driver assist, dynamic handling, premium, technology (loving the HUD), X-line, 19" alloy double spoke wheels, satin roof rails and rear manual shades.

Ours went from the 26th to the 25th, looks like we'll have a similar waiting time!

Regarding an ETA, I'm still hearing from my CA early next week. He was slightly optimistic it would be here Friday since someone ordered their x3 5 days before ours and it got in last Friday. That scenario is looking less and less likely.
