Incredibly fast time from production to delivery

Well, this is all sort of out of the blue. I had my 128i up for sale as a feeler since I wasn't using it as much (little driving, 2 doors for 4-5 people, and utility reasons). I've always had my eyes on the E70 X5. I drove them at the Komen events back in the day and just fell in love with them. I'm more of a small car guy (1er, e46, e30 m3), but the E70 just blew me away. On top of that, I drove the 35d a year ago and absolutely loved the engine.

Incentives...Yada yada yada....I decided to snatch up one of the last E70's and have it built to my spec. So I got a decent trade for my 1er, and after an AMAZINGLY fast delivery this is what I have and how the delivery wait went. Better pictures later.

Thanks. Well I'll just say that I've bought 5 from them and we have a good fair understanding. By this board's standards I did a great deal. I didn't have time to take delivery. First thing tomorrow I'll get interior pics. It was a toss up between plat grey/oyster , white/black, or even white/oyster

It looks like our X5's were on the line about the same time. Mine finished production on 4/16 and we pick up at the Performance Center on May 1

PCD is great! I've done it twice before. Maybe it's the offroad portion that got me hooked on the X5

Enjoy!

So what your saying is that when the local dealer tells me to order at least 8 weeks in advance I should check his desk drawer for a pipe?

Dealers get a limited number of 'slots'... if a dealer sells you a car on Saturday and it so happens they have a slot entering production on Tuesday, and they change that order to match your specs, good news.

But if a dealer has all his X5 orders for the next two months already allocated to other buyers, you may wait 10 weeks.

With all these posts of 'how long it takes' the simple truth is the actual production time_transport time is well controlled, known, and has little variance- the wild card is dealer allocation

I have to think that there are a whole lot less "Priority 1" customer sold orders coming through on a vehicle that is at the end of its life cycle. So they get through fast. Probably surprises the teams in SC any time one comes through!

I am in the south Florida area so my dealer does in fact have a high number of vehicle allocations

I like color combo - congrats! I thought my order went through fast, about 3 - 4 weeks from placing the order to taking delivery. Yours totally blows that away. Enjoy!

Did ED in December. Would have loved to go again for the X5, but you know the story.
