I honestly don't think anyones X1 has left Germany yet..... My car was completed and at port before the Tiger left by a day. I have a sinking feeling our cars may wait at port till they get the spa cert..... Has anyone that has a 2014 on order actually shipped wither to the east or west??

A reliable source told me that the 2014 would ship to the US port. They do not await EPA certification at the foreign port. Someone posted that if you leave off the last five digits of the VIN, the info will come up. With mine, there are five total cars with exact VIN's except for the last five digits. I assume they are pretty much identical - color, engine, interior, etc. Is that right? Clicking on the Booking Number, Tiger is shown but it actually left the port before my vehicle arrived. Is there a disconnect?

I think the data that we are getting from the BMW phone system is a few days old. Mine has been "in transit" to the port for 4 days. It's only a couple of hundred miles away.

My vehicle's last five digits start with 93. I ordered a dealer in LA, CA. Mine is not loaded yet, so guess it's going to be on the next ship!
How long will it take guys?

Got our production number today and registered with my BMW. Tracking system knew we had ordered a mineral gray/coral red 2014 xdrive. Production has started and according to the 1-800 number, will be completed on March 22. So all is well.

I added mine. It says I ordered a 2014 Z4 sDrive28i with no options. At least it didn't lock up my account. Small steps.

Yes, my car also showed as a Z4 SDrive (I ordered an X1). Not sure how I will jam my kids in a Z4!

Once you added the car, how were you able to trace it? Didn't see the option in the left hand column. Sorry. Went back and deleted and added again and got option in left column to track.

after you add it go to the overview page for all cars and there will be a track it on the left column.

I too ordered an x1 sdrive showing up as a z4. looks like everything on the site has not been resolved yet.

My 2013 showed the wrong vehicle at first on the tracking page. Once it entered production, the tracking information appeared correctly.

I used my production number and it came up correctly. I did have to log out and back in again to get it to show the "Track your BMW" in the navigation panel. According to the 800 number mine is at Bremerhaven awaiting transport. The next W&W vessel leaving for California is the Toreador on the 23rd of March with an arrival at Pt Hueneme (Oxnard) on the 17th of April. I didn't see any K line ships at all scheduled for California.

Mein Auto: X1
My Production number shows up as a 2014 Z4 as well.. This is the second X1 I order. My first one I had to Lemon Law it.
Brake failure- I took delivery of it on March 5 and on March 7 nearly collided with another car because my X1 wouldn't stop as I was pressing on the brakes. My brakes failed.
My BRAND NEW 2013 X1 only 2 days old wouldn't stop. I was able to pull the Emergency Brake to make my X1 stop. I Called Roadside Assistance and the next day the dealer told me that the whole entire brake system collapsed. The Vacuum Pump failed. They said they'd get it fixed- I was terrified to get back into that car- but they reassured me that it would never happen again.
So on Monday March 11 - I went and picked it up- only for this to happen again a day later. I feel like I've cheated death not once but twice.
I "LEMON LAW" my 2013 X1 and made them order me another one- hopefully the brakes work on my next one.

wow that is serious. i had a similar issue on my g500 mb and they replaced the car. good to hear you did not loose faith in the brand. BMW makes some really great cars that from my experience have been more reliable than other german manufacturers (MB and Audi). My Audi A6 lost power at 65mph on the freeway, was not able to break or steer, the next day traded it in for another BMW.

Mein Auto: X1 xDrive35i
Well, after waiting since Jan 2nd for my production number to work in bmwusa's site, it accepted it. It now has my 2014 X1 xDrive35i listed as:

2014 14ZC - Z4 sDrive35is

After I enter the number it asks a few questions such as if I'm the owner, where I bought it, and mileage. If I add it and try to activate the BMW FS account attached to it, it says my SSN doesn't match the one on file.
