I was told last week that even though the car was in Oxnard port, it had been placed on "Mulroney Hold" (waiting for window sticker?)

Yesterday they said it is on a truck bound for Seattle.... so sometime this week.

Hey 19us, my 35i premium was finished on 4/21 and the CA told me yesterday expect end of this week for delivery. Based on your experience I am not banking on it. 800 # still saying released to carrier, waiting transport to port of exit. Has your CA giving you a reason for the delay? Backlog from the hold?

Shea51.... 800 number gives me same message you're getting. My CA is either useless or victim of terrible communication from corporate....i can't decide which. He tells me he doesn't know where the vehicle is and has no way to find out the status but is confident it'll be this week. I'm in central nj. They told me normal time from production completion to arrival on their lot is four days. Tomorrow will be 16.
I'm trying to not get stressed by telling myself once I get it I'll be thrilled....

Picked mine up from central jersey today LOVE it. My CA could not make up his mind one day it was coming and the next day he said its not, really bad communication between shipping company and dealers is my guess! But on the bright side it was worth the wait, the LED coronas look unreal.
Oh and BTW THE 800 # and the website are completely useless!!!!!!!!!!!

Got mine & loving it, premium sound is way better than what my '08 535 base system sounded like. Driving up to Augusta, Maine and then Fenway over the next few days, should have a good feeling for the vehicle by the time I get back...

Our wait has just begun...ordered X5 xDrive 35i on Tuesday, yesterday found out it would be produced in June (no week given) and we should expect delivery to the UK in August. Hopefully that's early August.

Wow - your dealer must have made their sales number for the month. I'm betting mine hasn't because they are pushing for a Saturday delivery and the truck hasn't arrived yet.

Those LED's are so sick, congrats on the car. I can't wait for my Lux led's so I can look somewhat like a real 2012.
