Mine was completed 4/3 also. I got a similar VIN report as above. But the dealer ran me a vehicle inquiry on 3/28 and it showed for 6AM -- Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information, which also is in the pricing guide someone posted previously. But I will believe it when I see a picture of it here.

Production was scheduled to be completed on 04/03 but status changed now, automated system says 'your vehicle is in paint shop and scheduled to be completed on 04/04'.
My dealer said I can expect the vehicle around 04/22.

I don't see it on the BMWUSA website. I think when you ordered the 609 navigation option for 2013 you got 6UH Real-Time Traffic Information. I really didn't want to spend the $850 or so for just the HUD feature for 2014 so just ordered the navigation optIon.

Same for mine, Per the Automated Line, it stated that my X3 is in Paint Shop and estimated completion is 04/04/2013. But when I reached out to the Customer Relations, the rep told me its status is "Currently in Assembly, QA"

So either this website is inaccurate or there is no Nav update. Sorry no end of story yet.
According to the Elmhurst BMW Parts Department S609A generically refers to Nav Professional and is used across BMW product lines. It does not indicate which version of Nav Professional the car is equipped with. I still beleive that the 2014 X3's have a 60 percent likelihood of getting the upgraded iDrive and Nav hardware and software. We are hearing this from more sources than not. I do not understand why BMW just does not make an anouncement. The only possible reason in my mind is that possibly they want to unload the 2013 X3's. Or the upgrade will come out in July.

As Pharding states and I agree there are still a lot of 2013ís to place. There are no 2014 images available anywhere and you can't even configure one online. It's almost like it doesn't exist. If they start to offer big 2013 discounts they would move them.

I agree, my dealer had at least 15-20 28i MY 2013's left on the lot. They pushed hard to get us to take one of those, but once I told him Bronze Metallic or nothing, he changed his tune. LOL.

We ordered our 2014, but like others have said, ZERO information available. Not what I expect out of a premium brand such as BMW. This is our first BMW purchase, and am not pleased at all. If it wasn't for this forum, I probably would have pursued a different route.

Untill I inquired about the 2014 MY my CA didnt even know they were starting production.

This is quite a joke. I hope someone at BMW monitors these forums ??

We were heavily interested in the new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit, a new body style refresh for this upcoming year, with an available diesel engine too! Chrysler group had a whole entire web page dedicated the same day they unveiled the 2014 changes months and months ago.

My 2014 X3 has been manufactured and is awaiting transit by truck to Chicago. We should know shortly as to what we purchased.

Mine as well. My CA told me realistically it will be here over this weekend or early next week - the system showed they'd have it by the 8th. So, hopefully by Tuesday I can put up some pictures and answers.


This entire thing has made me.... *BMW*

Our X3's may be on the same truck. Did you get the 28i or the 35i?

Wife's, so I went with the 28i - it's basically a grocery getter.


I'm @ Perillow, not sure where they will drop off first, hopefully downtown

I placed my production number in the "add a new vehicle section" and my car model shows up. I don't know how I can track production now. Don't see any option to see video.

The tracking on the web page leaves a lot to be desired, so I would suggest just calling the 800 number. I don't have any videos available to me and my vehicle has completed assembly.

The idea of the video is more tease than it is gratification. The concept is great, but the execution is poor.

If all of the cameras are working, then you will eventually get a video that is roughly 50% generic and 50% your X3. When you'll get it is problematic. I received mine after I took delivery. It would be much better if the video was available immediately after production was completed, but that's not the case.

I logged out and logged back in. I can now track my car. Says order received.

My question: I've seen several YouTube videos of BMW being assembled. Do we get any option of recording video on the my bmw site? I want to show it to my parents.

See my post just before yours. I've played my video, downloaded my video, and burned it onto a DVD that will go with my X3 when I sell it.

That makes three!! I purchased mine from Patrick in Schaumburg and it is completed and waiting transit as well.

Just hope I am happy when I pick it up.....
