Sooner. What possible reason exists for holding the cars? EPA on Sept 9 (reportedly), CARB today.

Just venting here - my 35d went into production on October 7th at about 12:00 PM and for the past 2 days it has been in the Paint Shop. Must be getting a few extra coats!

My CA just called me and told me the cars are set to be released on the 21st. So perhaps the vehicles are being moved to the west coast staging area to make sure that no one on the east coast gets their car before anyone on the left coast.

Samething from my CA, he said: "they were holding the vehicle for the EPA. We expect the release to be before or around the 21st".

As of now My car is still in South Carolina. Being released to a carrier today. Regardless of how much or how little I will like this car I dont see myself repeating this experience... at least not on this end of the model year.

Ard, you must lead a charmed life. Weren't you the first to take delivery of a new X5 a couple of years ago? If I remember correctly, you actually got it before the CARB EO was signed. Or am I thinking of someone else?

Hey, we still didn't get ARD's confirmation that he actually got a car and pictures as a proof with local newspaper showing todays date.

I got it before the CARB posted.... in Oct 2009. (But after the date on the signed EO. Car shipped the same day the EO signed, I had it two days later.) Also, it is easy to think this little forum is 100% of the X5s in the US, but I expect someone else was (and will be) first.

Picture? I actually don't care. It's kind of cool, I guess. But look what it got me with my 2010!
