CA estimated the car should be in Seattle at the end of the month.
Perhaps they're releasing the longer distance deliveries early despite later completion dates.

My 35 just started production and will be completed on 4/22. Any idea how long after that I should expect to see arrive at my dealership in Chicago?

We heard from the dealership today that we can expect delivery in a week. Hopefully this is true. We ordered back at the beginning of March, its been a long wait.

I was just told that my car was released yesterday (I love when they're early) and will be at the dealership on the 18th! I should have it on the 19th...can't wait. It seems like 3/5, when I ordered the car, was a long time ago.

Wow, yours is so fast , we also ordered one at the end of Feb in Seattle.
When was your production finished, when it's one the train, and how long to CA?

Our was on the train on April 7th and may follow your car's footprint.

It gets easier after a week or two, then when it comes down to just days you will go crazy!
Right now I'm days away and I just cannot take it. Anticipation!

Try having your car completely done, ready for shipment, but just sitting around for week waiting on the government to clear it...

Right there with you. But at least yours has been shipped. My CA is calling the shipper on Monday to see what the hell is the hold up.

Once you guys get it, don't forget to ask them to subscribe to BMW assist. So far the incompetent CA was not able to do so and now started dodging me. After all, he already sold the car, no such thing as post sale follow up.

Get all you agreed upon in writing BEFORE paying for it. I had to drive for one hour to get mats (after begging for it, naturally) at the STEALERSHIP, wait another hour, after all that had to hear that the other extras they agreed upon me ordering the car, cannot be respected because I didn't have anything in writing. That's the price for being naive and believing that some people are still honest on keeping with their word. Lesson (again) learned...

Sorry to hear about your experience. I signed contract at order so hoping not to have to deal with that....but seems others have had same experience.

One question for you - when you picked up your X5 - did you get hard copy manuals? Notice the manuals are not posted on BMWUSA site yet...

Yep, got that. No significant difference to my 11, as expected
