Mein Auto: Probably an X1
For those who have built their X1

So, just a basic question. How long did it take from the day it was ordered till it was delivered? I know that the dealership will tell you 6-8 weeks, just want to know the numbers.

I ordered my M Sport on Friday, 7/27. It went into production the following Monday and it was completed a week later. The car sat for a couple weeks awaiting a ride, but it finally shipped in late August and is expected to make port this week. (The original ETA at port was 9/12, but I didn't track it.) I'm hoping to take delivery next week if the test drive is satisfactory and the dealer and I can work out the paddle shifter issue.

The key is getting an allocation slot from the dealer as soon as possible. They should be able to tell you which week of production they can give you before you place the order. From that week, count another 6-8 weeks until you get it (depending on where you live).

The car arrived earlier than expected - my CA just emailed a couple pictures right after it rolled off the carrier.

That's Le Mans Blue, the lightest of the three.

I ordered mine August 31. It went into production the next week. The call in number says estimated completion date is Sep 13 but I just looked it up on the BMW VIN checker and it says it finished production today: Prod.date 2012-09-12. Now the longest wait to travel from Bimmerhaven to California.

Ordered 8/27 and finished production 9/6. It's been sitting at port, so I hope it will make that 9/16 ship mentioned above. Early October delivery would be great!

It's on the ship! My X1 is on Courage. So, ordered 8/27, finished production 9/6 and loaded 9/16. ETA 9/28. Assuming another week from port to final dealer prep and pickup.

Lots of cars in the middle of the ocean...

Anxiously waiting

I ordered my x1 sdrive on 8/20 and it finished production on 9/13. Then it sat at the docks until loaded on the Fidelio about 9/25 and due to arrive at Pt. Hueneme 10/20. Should arrive at the dealership by 10/27 but it depends on customs.

Currently the ship is 'out of area' so can't see it on the map - destination is the Panama Canal.

Mein Auto: 2013 BMW sDrive 28i X1
Mine just went into production. Ordered from Beverly Hills BMW 9/22. Didn't hear anything for a few days so started pestering, and just today got the production number. Put it into MyBMW and I see it is already in production. Which is cool but the OCD part of me wanted to see it first in "Order documented" and then move to "Production begins". Oh well! Just glad it's being built...
