Thumbs up Ordered my new X5

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you now that I pulled the trigger on a 35D today. I got a great deal through USAA buying program that amounted to $5K under invoice after the Eco-credit and Team USA Event coupon. I ordered it from the factory, and they were able to modify an order to get me a quick delivery. Currently, I'm scheduled to go into production for week 23 (in the next few days)!

I considered Adaptive Drive after some posts here, but I am purchasing and decided it wasnt worth the risk if it is buggy or otherwise didn't work out. I also dont think I would get the value back when I sell. My build includes: Space Grey/Oyster, Bamboo, Prem Package, Prem Sound, Sport Activity, Cold weather, Multi Countour seats, Heads Up display, and SS Spare? I got it for less than $58K before tax (MSRP of almost $68K) so I am quite pleased.

Hopefully, I am driving for the 4th!

Lance

Wow....called the 800 number, and it apparently went into production today! He said that I should be moving to the paint shop in the next day or two. At this rate, I'll have it by the end of June. @ Nitros - prod number is 3896571, so it is an earlier number than you. Like I said, the dealer modified an existing order for me that was scheduled for production in mid to late June. Once it goes to priority 1 (customer owned), they will apparently often move it up. I got lucky I guess

Only two weeks from order or allocation date? If I can get mine in two weeks from just the allocation date, that would be great.

I got the allocation call (Week 26) from the dealer yesterday - now I just need my production number.

Ordered mine yesterday, everything but soft close doors, rear entertainment, third row. This time I added AD. Invoice + $1,000 then $6,000 from BMW, no record breaking deal but ok with the trade. I had 33,000 mi on mine, needed tires and couldn't pass on the BMW giveaways. I can only hope I get another like my first one, fingers and toes crossed. Thanks for the help.

Got a call from my dealer. He offered me delivery at the dealer next week and a voucher for 101 experience or wait for July 10th PCD.

I guess I will go with the 1st option. Can't wait anymore.

I guess it is because my dealership Hendrick BMW Northlake in Charlotte, NC opened just last month. So, maybe they have got an allocation which is not filled up yet.

Mine is progressing nicely. As of this AM, it was in the body shop and scheduled to be completed on Sunday. I placed my order on Sunday, and the car will be completed one week later....crazy. The tough part for me is going to be the long train ride out to Cali and the wait to reach the dealership.

I checked your production number. It is at the port of shipping waiting for a shipping vessel. Congratulations. Let me know when you are getting it from the dealer.

Nitros, it took me a while to figure out how that was even possible, but vehicle is not mine. I screwed up my prod number earlier...ends in 6461. Of course, I've almost memorized it at this point ;-)

Hi,
My production number is 3896162.
We are scheduled for PCD on July 12.

How do I check status of production?
I was on MYBMW and did not see how to check.

Thanks for the help. We are getting excited about the PCD experience.

(Edit)I found the area on MYBMW. It just says production started.

You can call BMW at 1 (800) 831-1117. Press option 2, then enter your production number, end with #, then press option 1.

I checked your status. BMW says "your vehicle is being transferred to the port of exit"

Looks like your vehicle completed production.

Yea, honestly I'm not even sure the phone number is that up to date. I talked to someone at the 800 number who said it was in the body shtherefore the recording reflected that. Also, I am scheduled to be done with production on Saturday and it still says body shop....sounds a day behind.

Got my production number (3907510) today - yes! Registered it on myBMW website - Track Your BMW function activated.

Now the tough part begins - all I have to do is wait for Week 26.
