2014 X6 in production

Hey everyone,
I've been watching and reading everyone elses vehicle status updates I finally decided to get in on the action and post my own. After several weeks of waiting/checking the status online, my 2014 X6 35i is in status 150 as of 5/29. I'm hoping it will be completed and shipped to Phoenix so I can pick it up before I have to leave for work (I'll be gone for several months). So sometime between June 23rd and the 29th. Any thoughts on if this is reasonable?

Extremely excited!

Same with mine. Ordered on 4/28 and finally went into production yesterday (5/29). Anyone knows how long the transit time will be to New York City?

Congrats! I just checked the website today, so it is about 24 hrs behind what the dealer has. kmhills22, I would imagine that transit time for you is pretty short from SC (1 week?) I know my dealer told me two weeks to get to AZ, since it is taken by train to CA an then trucked over. What color and options did you order?

We are planning on ordering an X6 on the 8th of June in order to get the $1k rebate after driving it. What web site are you speaking about to get the production status of your vehicle? What do you need to get from the dealer once it is ordered?
Many Thanks JOHN

john&kris,
Once the vehicle is ordered, you can log into BMWusa.com and in the owner's section (if you don't have an account its free to create one) you can enter your production number or VIN. My VIN didn't work for some reason but the production number did. You can also call the 800 number listed in other posts and speak to a live operator. For some reason the automated system is a few weeks off. For me, the website is about 12-24 hrs off what the dealer receives as far as status. If the dealer already has an allocation for a vehicle, you'll get the production number when you place your deposit. If the dealer doesn't already have an allocation, it may take a number of weeks to secure one from BMW. Luckily, I had my production number in a couple days and the VIN is assigned once the vehicle is being produced.

Fender: Thanks much. We are ordering on the 8th and dealer said he would use a priority 1 status request which, if I understood him, would put our order ahaead of others that they had submitted. We will see.
Thanks again John.

Congrats! You are correct, most if not all customer orders are placed priority 1. This means that your vehicle gets produced before all the dealer orders (the cars that sit on the lot and aren't sold to customers). You'll have to let us know your options and color choices and if you need any help deciding!

Ordered X6 35i on 8th

Ordered our X 6 35i on the 8th so we could get the $1k for test driving. Got production Number of 7051492. Sales manager said it should go to production the week of the 17th and they should get it 1st week in August, so we will see.
Guess I'll wait a week or so before calling the BMW 800 # to tarck it.

You can actually put your production number or VIN on the website too. Initially it was about 12 hrs behind what the dealer had as far as info when it first went into production, and then recently after the vehicle was made available to ship it was 1-2 days behind. The customer service reps at the 800# told me it was released to shipping and should arrive on 6/13, the website still says "finishing touches" and my SA said it had completed production. So everyone has a different story haha. Unfortunately I won't be able to drive to AZ to pick it up until the 19th due to work. Its going to be a long wait! Congrats on the order though

Fender911: I'll be tracking...the wait till production starts will be the killer. But at least when done it is in the same state and only a 3 hour drive for the delivery carrier once one is assigned. May even consider going to the Plant except we have been there and went thru the driving experience with our new 3 series convertible and also the off road course with an X5. Besides we are good friends with the Slaes manager and Gm at our BMW dealership and have a lot of fun and lunch when there.
The WAIT begins

Thank you! I ordered on May 11th and and they called to tell me it had been delivered on June 10th. I wasn't able to pick it up until yesterday. It was originally promised in 6 weeks so they really came through. I would imagine you would get yours at the end of August, John@kris

X6 Started

Ours started production on 6/20 and is due out on 7/20. We are only 3 hours from the Plant but I am sure it will take some time to get it on a fully loaded carrier to come to Aiken SC ( Augusta GA Dealer). Interesting I just went onto the BMW site ( my Bmw) and they posted all the option we choose for the vehicle.
The wait begins

Changes '13 & "14 BMWX6

Dingular: When we went to the Drive Experience to get the $1k on an order a BMW Rep was there and he said the "14 X6 was going to get the new I Drive where you could write on the drive circle with you finger and it would be recorded in the system as well as an updated Navigation system where you could voice communicate thru your phone to set directions etc. I found these items in a press release from BMW. HOWEVER I am not so sure that they will be in the X6 2014 even though the article and Rep said so. When you talk with Customer Service they have no clue what you are talking about and some have claimed there are no changes between "13 & "14 which could make sense as the "New " 2015 Model year will be the change year for the X. Also the factory is now closed to tours till 2015 so they must be starting some production prototypes of the 2015's and don't want them seen.

In short I hope we get the new I drive & Nav especially as the current Nav sucks vis a vis directions....a little better if you download directions from Google from your PC. WE have ordered all the options so we will see when we get ours sometime after the 20th of July.
