X3 lead times ...

"Due to global demand, the X3 is seeing lead times of 30 weeks currently. It would be difficult to tell at this point if that will reduce any time soon."

Anyone seen such delays in recent orders, in particular from Europe (if it makes a difference!).

Thx

I just asked at dealership. Apparently there is a bonus 10 week (yes WEEK) delay on M Sport models he could not explain.

Taking my projected order time (if I pulled the trigger now) to seven bloody months!

:-(

Mein Auto: Hoping for an X3
I about to place an order for an M Sport. I was told "8 weeks" about a week ago, but your post is having me ask the question once again for sure.

I was told yesterday that it would be 12 weeks on the best side and in reality it would be closer to 4 months or September if I ordered now. On top of that, my dealer really would not wiggle to much off the MSRP.
I am starting to talk myself into picking up a 2014 and getting the major discount.

These idiots are making it far too easy to NOT drop $60,000 on one of their vehicles and take my business elsewhere. Never had to beg, hope, and pray this much just for what is starting to feel like a privilege to hand over money to someone. You talk about being unprepared and out of touch with their customers.

You either settle for the limited options they have available, or deal with prolonged and uncertain order time to have slightly less limited options.
