Quick Question... So the My BMW website I was finally able to enter my production number. However, it came up with the correct X3 35i, but the color was wrong. How accurate is the website ?? My guess something is wrong ?

You lucky duck Pharding. I still have not recieved confirmation when mine will arrive from the dealership.

I work about 1 minute from Elmhurst BMW. If I see your trailor coming in maybe I will swing by and see if we get the new iDrive just kidding. that would be a little stalkerish

Good news!! BMW NA just called me to address my concerns about the updated iDrive system on the 2014 X'3. After my last interaction with them I wrote another letter expressing my disatisfaction with the help I recieved from them and couldn'b believe how I was being treated. Apparently that got to the correct person.

This manager got in contact with other departments and confirmed that the 2014 with have the new iDrive. She said BMW had not released that information to the public yet. She didn't say why, but I would put money on Pharding assesment he posted yesterday (to offload the existing stock of 2013).

So happy dance time.

Just a quick question... When we are all talking new navigation I know that they will be updating the software and hardware. But what's the changes to the iDrive? Will it be the new iDrive where you can swipe your finger and draw the letters instead is scrolling the wheel?

This is not the new "touch" controller. That is a future improvement.

Can I ask where you got that from? Did you call and talk to customer service? Last time I asked them they said they don't have any info after it leaves the plant for transport.

My CA told me his computer showed 4/8. Maybe it showed earlier and he's hoping to shock me tomorrow. Either way, happy you are getting yours tmrw.

ok, here is the final word. I worked through some executives I am friends with and got this email from BMW.


Mr. XXXXXXXXXX,

I left you a couple of voice mails and wanted to make sure you heard from me. I am the xxxxxx. I am so sorry for the runaround on this information. I have confirmed that your X3 well receive the Nav you were hoping for. Additionally, I have taken action to make sure the call center team knows where to find this type information in the future.

As noted in your voicemail. I asked colleagues at the Spartanburg plant to confirm the NAV system in your X3 so once it was done with production they gave it an extra Quality Control Check and sent me confirmation.

Once again, I am very sorry for the poor service you received.

Please don't hesitate to contact me in the future for anything BMW.

looks like it is apology tour time for them. I am sure they heard frustrations from quite a few of us.

Looks like Pharding's X3 might be headed to Chicago by itself

My CA still didn't have a date, just that is was realeased to the carrier.

Does anyone know the exact rear seat configuration for how it folds?

For 2013, it was 60/40 standard, or priority 1 option for 40/20/40, option code was 465, $200 extra or came with the cold weather package.

For 2014, code 465 is standard and listed as folding seats, but no specific details, assuming since the code is the same that all get the 40/20/40 seats - anyone know for sure?

For MY 2014, X3, 40/20/40 is standard. This was confirmed by my CA.

The iDrive will be updated for all X3's. Faster processor, more ram, and much larger hard drive. When scrolling through information, you can literally spin through information at iPhone speed. Plus the screen is higher resolution.

It must only be a 12 hour drive / 700 miles from Spartenburg to Chicago.

Looking forward to the reviews from our lucky few who will be getting them shorty.

I am new to the forum and am in the process of negotiating (soon to order) on a 2014 MSport -- Can anyone tell me what the best deal I can expect off MSRP (in terms of % and $) before the $750 rebate is applied? 36 Mo. Lease on MSRP of approx. $58K with 15K miles. Thanks!

I was able to negotiate 5% off MSRP... My dealer had a lot of 2013's left so I really didn't have much leverage.

My wife wanted Bronze, which they had no leftovers in bronze, so I had to order a 2014

I got it for 750 above invoice. But I did not lease. I guess the lease price might be different.

Quick question for the forum: my X3 just turned into status 150 today acc to my CA. How long did it take for you guys to get your cars on delivery trucks?
