It should not actually matter what it shipped with.

What matters is "Does BMW specify a shade for the 2011 35d?" if "yes" you are due a shade. Period, end of discussion.

More to the point, if they do not explicitly state that the shade is deleted for the 2011 35d, then it should be there. The only model they have deleted the shade from is the 35i.

The trick is to press the issue assertively- assert it is required per the SIB and missing- and not to ask 'should it be there?'

No cargo cover

I just took delivery of a 2011 X5 and it did not have the cargo cover. After some digging around, the dealer found out that the cargo cover only comes with the sports package - nothing to do with 3rd row seat; not standard anymore. I had cargo cover in 2008 (without sports pkg), but no longer "standard". We raised a stink about it, but to no avail.

Was about to ask the same thing. I can tell you the 35i Sport doesn't come with it either.

I just got off the phone with BMWNA. The guy said that the cover is not standard on any 2011 X5 model. I don't know when the official cutoff date was. Apparently some have gotten lucky.

They may have changed it again. I would be very shocked if the 5.0 didn't get a cargo cover.

Has anybody with a X5D taken delivery in the past week or two? Sounds like we got a bunch of people in production this week, so we'll know for certain soon... just curious in the meantime.

What I find amazing is how poorly BMWNA communicates, even within their own organization. Time and time again, one cannot get a clear answer from BMW NA.

While one can argue one way or another about BMW NA's inclusion or removal of the shade, an organization has to be near the limits of incompetence to be unable to give a clear answer as to when you get it and when you don't.

Reading this thread just boggles my mind.


But I'm not surprised, after seeing this photo of BMW NA Management at a recent party:

Just received the following via email from the GM of the dealership.

Correct the cargo cover in 2011 is a option to the tune of $475.00. I may have a grey or tan used one I can give you!

Looks like get your checkbook out if you want one.

Yeah, I'm sure that's what they do. Only that would be theft or conversion of property and they could be held criminally libel, but I'm sure you are right.

I think you can get it cheaper than that (assuming I looked up the right part no.):

haha, ya just to shut me up they gave me a loaded x5m for the same price... Then I woke up.

No actually I finally got the cover included but it took over 5 weeks of back and forth with BMWNA. I documented every call, conversation, and attempt. It was quite a wild ride and I'm very unimpressed with their customer service - but my CA saved me literally, she went to bat for me and quite thankful for that.

It deserves it's own thread as it's a heck-of-a long story, I just want to have it in my hot little hands before I make a post and someone reads it and makes a call and *poof* there goes my cover

I hear that.

I'll be looking for a trade if anyone is interested. I currently have a beige cover ('07 3.0si) and I recently placed an order for a "d" with cinnamon brown interior. So if anyone has a black cover and looking for a beige PM me.

Just picked up my 2011 SA yesterday, no luggage cover, dealer said BMW no longer includes them, have to order separately.
Seems rather cheap of BMW, even my VW Touareg has it included by default
