Looks like I will have to wait until 24th April..very long wait...
I'm hoping mine is on the same train to CA, it was also finished on 4/3 and the automated recording has said "waiting to be released to carrier" for the last few days. Tried to call my CA today but he's not in.

What does the auto recording state for yours?

Mine was built on 4/3. Now getting the "transferred into the port of exit" message. I assume it would come by truck but maybe it would be put on a ship? Not sure. Maybe they wait until they have a certain volume to ship. I'm really not is a rush to get it as I'm sure some people are. But it would be great to know what it looks like.

So I finally got a status update on the phone line. It gives me a completion date of the 15th of April. How accurate is that ??

"Port of Exit" and "Shipping Vessel" statuses are standard BMW statuses that are more pertinent to cars built in Europe and shipped to the US. For NY, your X3 will be on a truck within days, if it isn't already en route. For OR, your X3 will be on a train within days, if it isn't already en route to CA.

If the phone line says 4/15 then the probability is high that your X3 will complete production on 4/15.

My x3 went into production on 4/5. When I called the 1-800 number they say production will complete on 4/12. That's way too long. Can't wait to drive this baby.

I am not sure about the other 3 items
6AK BMW Online
6AM Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information (ARTTI)
6AP Remote Services
Def hope you are right about the whole thing!!! still waiting for my car
My sources:

The price list posted in this forum shows:

609 Navigation system $2,000 $2,000
Included in package
ZTP ZTP

609 cannot be ordered with ZTP
x x

609 will add 6AK, 6AM, 6AP and 6NR to the order

What was new in March is that 6NS was ALSO added to the order.

I saw the March price list and the price of 609 had gone to $2150.

Do you think there is a chance of reaching the dealer earlier than dealers expected arrival date, which is 24th?

I was going to do the PCD but opted to have my X3 delivered. I'll go to the dealership today around 3:30 to pick it up. I'll post pics! I didn't get the M package...

As 02420X3 previously predicted my X3 was en route and arrived at the NY dealership today! Built on 4/3 and delivered on 4/8. I chose a simpler vehicle--cold weather, premium, roof rails, and navigation system, space grey with black Nevada leather. Picking it up on Wednesday. Really looking forward to using this forum as it is my first BMW.

ugh. Mine has still not arrived. It finished production 4/2 and has still not made its way to Chicago. My CA had a estimated delivery of 4/7 but it did not arrive yesterday. He checked again today and he said it went back to "waiting for transport"

I know my X3 exists. He gave me my VIN, looked it up and it has everything I ordered on it!

  • Split folding rear seats are now standard.
  • Packages have been shuffled around with some reductions
  • Price increase.
So are there any changes to the bumpers and lights, or were the spy shots all a hoax?

We're still looking forward to seeing some pics!

There are no changes to the bumpers and lights on the 2014 X3. You will most likely see those changes with SOP April 1, 2014 as the 2015 LCI X3.

Pharding, you are the man.. .Thanks a ton for the great pictures and congrats again.

On a side note, does anybody test drive when they go to pick up their ordered car from the dealer. You know just to make sure everything works fine. I'm going to be picking my 2014 X3 in a couple of weeks from a dealer 4 hours away so was just wondering.

Thanks.
