Mein Auto: E90/E91
On order: X335i Alpine White M Sport

After four wonderful years of ownership of my second 3 Series, a 2007 E90 - I have decided to trade her and get a new X3. I'm hoping to take delivery at the Performance Center if it can work with my schedule.

Really anxious to get this new one, thought it might be awhile due to my PCD request...

35i, Alpine White / Oyster
M Sport
Premium package
Cold Weather package
Convenience package
Technology package
Satellite radio
6NR BMW Apps
Premium hi-fi system

Unless you ditch the Convenience Package, I would expect a long delay. Maybe you will get lucky though since you are ordering a highly optioned X3. At least you won't suffer a delay from not ordering navigation...

Is the convinience package now causing delays? I knew that non-Nav was and have heard a rumbling about the power liftgate causing some minor delays (whichi is part of ZCV). I requested PCD from mid June to early July due to work schedule, and I'm not sure whether that is going to work in my favor or against me at this point....

I have been status 112 since early April due to the Convenience Package (more specifically the power tailgate).

I just ordered my X3 with the power tailgate and without the convenience package and am scheduled for a May build. Where do you find out the status number?

What part of Michigan are you in? I placed my order on April 18th and should have the vehicle by the 3rd week of May. I was forced to get the Nav so i just ordered the tech package, but I did not get the power tailgate.

I'm in Grand Rapids. Also decided to go with the Tech package to avoid delays.

Hey, I've been hijacked by Michiganders! That's okay, I was born there and visit every summer (not too far from Kalamazoo actually).

Good 'ol I-94. Lots of construction right now! I'll keep my eye out for your M-sport over the summer! I haven't seen a new X-3 in K-zoo yet! Maybe mine will be the first

I'm planning to be out in August this year. Not sure if I'll be in the X3 or the X5 though....

So LEDZEP, They are taking orders for the M Sport? Last I checked, you could not configure that in US website online...
That is great news. Thinking hard of ordering a Saph. Black version to replace my M3 Sedan.

Dealer can provide status. Expect delays if you want the power tailgate and do not want nav. For my own sake I hope I am wrong.

Yep, you can order M Sport. My X5 M Sport is Black Sapphire - beautiful... for 10 minutes after washing.
