I tried registering at MyBMW (BMWUSA) with the Production number given to me when I ordered but I get a message that it could find it in their system. Please advise.

My guess is that it will not accept your production number until it has flipped to 150 status in the BMW system and may take some time after that.

My 2014 X3 order says the same thing. I agree with Liverman that it will probably be accepted once it is 150 status.

The Factory, I think

It comes from the factory, I think.

I think that is the signal that the order has been acknowledged by the factory and has been assigned a production slot, inventory items, etc.

I think things might be going a little slower than usual since they switch to MY 2014 on April first. I ordered my 2014 on Feb 26 and all I still have is a production number. I still can not register the X3 on the MY BMW page. Been almost a month and I still do not know when it will be built

I ordered mine last week and was given a production number and date (mid April). Status is still 112, but I don't expect it to change to 150 until mid April as 150 is the code for Production started.

Thanks. My order was the dealer's first order on MY14 X3. I will update this post when the status moves to 150

I just got back from my dealership, the order has the "Conf. Production" as "04/14/2014", CA will call me as soon as the VIN is available.

Code 465 in 2013 was 40-20-40 read split seats under cwp or separate option but in 2014 it's mentioned as 465 rear split seats and it is in standard equipment section (no mention of 40-20-40), I guess out is standard now.

Lucky you! I cant believe you have a production date already having just ordered a couple days ago.

Were you able to enter the production number on the MY BMW page and pull up the car?

I see your Main Auto shows "Corolla", so was mine for 10 years. I miss my 03 corolla. X3 although is great, it is still a SUV. X3 feels heavy in local and corners compares to sedans. I have to say at low speed my 10 years old corolla is even more responsive than X3.

@bsavage,

I tried entering the production number in my bmw but it didn't recognize it, I will keep trying. The CA changed an existing stock order for my requirement and it had an initial date of 03/05 and order date of 03/15 at 111, may be the that helped.

Yes, I bought my corolla new back in 99 and I am keeping it and I love it. I kept it even when I had a G35S.

Per my CA, BMW NA confirmed that 40-20-40 is a standard option in 2014 X3

I called (1-800) 831-1117 for Production status and the nice lady told me that production started today on my X3. You should try calling the above number. She confirmed my name, address and model on file , very excited.

I received a 150 update and VIN number today. Allegedly production started at 11.06am! I guess they are starting the 2014s early. Still can't track it online though.

Our 2014 X3 also started production early. However now there is a new post here that it won't have the new iDrive / Nav System which I really wanted. Apparently it won't be available until July SOP. I am not too happy with BMW right now and their awful communication on the 2014 X3.

@ Pharding have you confirmed with your dealer the new nav isn't going in until July?

I ordered mine a few weeks ago with the explicit instructions that I was only ordering now if I was getting the new nav pro. I checked and mine is in production right now too. If they don't put the new nav pro in I am going to refuse to take delivery of it and not give them their $$$.


It's really a shame that BMW can't get their act together. The other thing I wonder is if the July date is even right? I have seen the post about the production roll out, but trying to find that same release from BMW has been unsuccessful. If I can find that release from BMW that says April production will have it, then I don't think the dealer with have many positions to my not taking delivery.

It's the new navigation system that is "allegedly" going to be in the April 2013 production line of the X3. It's already in all the other models. It also comes w/ significant hardware updates. upgrade to 1g ram, 8 g flash 200 g hard drive.
