2013's hardest to find cars

Look at what is number 2 on the top 15 hardest to find cars in the US. Days worth of inventory is interesting as most dealers in Colorado don't have any in stock and the ones that do seem to sit there.

BMW X3 is also high on the list.

Does a production number say anything about the date it will go into production?

Still don't have a production number, they mentioned on Monday its looking like a late September/Early October delivery as production slots are full all through August and early September.

Midnight Blue with the Beige Interior, no Sport package which is how they screwed up the expedited production slot I originally had!

Not really, factory has to put the production number into the production roster. Your dealer should be able to estimate the week of production if they call the factory which will give you a rough estimate.

To ifly - When did you order yours? I was constantly calling them and they found me the one and only slot! Good Luck though! I can't wait to get my car!!! Did you not get the LED light package or the //M package?

Ordered the second time around on June 21st, they spun their wheels before telling me Monday that they placed a regular production order as they could not barter or trade with anyone in the Western US. Hence the Late September/early October statement by the head Sales honcho. Not too bothered as I have a loaner until the replacement vehicle appears!

No LED, took a look and its only slightly different to the Xenon's. Not worth it in my opinion. As its the wife's car the M package would only get her in more trouble with her heavy right foot.

I hope you realize if you don't get the LED upgrade, you corona rings are yellow. See the below link. Trust me, the LED lights on the X6 give it a totally different look. I got the option, it was worth every penny.

There are X6's on the lots... If you like Black
Dealers seem to be offering them from $500-$2000 over invoice.
Remember: MSN also named the X6 as one of the Top 10 Ugliest Cars... LOL

The car is ugly to those who cant afford it and are jealous of those who can, like the losers at MSN.
