Congratulations!!

Mine went into production on 4/12 with an estimated completion date of 4/17. The phone status recording declared it "enroute to port of exit" on 4/17. When I looked up the VIN number in BMWVIN it has a build date of 4/16. So I believe that means the VIN was assigned on 4/16. Now the VIN may be assigned to your production number by a computer before that.

Looking at the videos available fo the X3 plant, it looks like the VIN is put on the vehicle during the marriage process.

When you call for status, if you default through to customer service they can give you more detailed info. I did not do that.

To answer your question, based on my experience and information, your VIN will be assigned the day before it finishes production.

I called the phone line today and it says my vehicle is being assembled. I then checked the last seven characters of my VIN on BMWVIN.com. The information of my car showed up there. So, I think you may need to wait until the phone line tells you that your vehicle is being assembled since I did not got any results from the BMWVIN.com using the last seven characters before.

I am happy that your car is finally being assembled. Once the assembly is complete it should be on the truck within two days max. And since you are in NY expect to have the car at your dealership by around Tues-Wed
