X5 F15 Production/Delivery Delay

I am new to Bimmerfest and must say that I am very impressed with the quality and tone of the dialogue here.

Like many others, we are caught up in a production/delivery delay with an X5 xDrive35i ordered through Motorwerks BMW in Bloomington, MN.

Please look at the configuration below and comment if you see anything that could be driving the delay.

Order Date: 1/22/14 (rec'd Production Number right away)
Slated for production third week of February
Completed: 2/27/14 (as per communication from Motorwerks)

Also, according to Motorwerks, it has been "released" twelve times since 2/27.

X5 xDrive35i
Space Gray Metallic
Poplar Wood Trim
Ivory White Interior Design Package
Active Steering
Rear manual side window shades
Comfort seats with lumbar support
4-zone automatic climate control
Ceramic Controls
ACC Stop & Go + Active Driving Assistant

Someone's not giving you the correct story. Call BMW NA at 1 (800) 831-1117 with your production number. They can tell you the status of the car.

Thank you! We have tried that as well. On 3/28 "Peter" told us that our X5 was released on 3/27 with a dealer delivery date of 3/30. Well, 3/30 came and went, no X5. Called this morning and talked to "Shawn/Sean" who said our X5 left final processing on 3/31 with a dealer delivery date of 4/3. It's getting harder and harder to believe anything BMW USA or Motorwerks is telling us.

Since I didn't hear from the OP this one isn't on Motorwerks. All you can do is take the production number and call the automated BMW line. It is usually a day or two behind, but does tell you where the car is. BMW took 1.5 weeks to ship my X5. My contact at Motorwerks told me tonight that they do have delays from BMW and tell people to expect them. Again, if you have the production number you can track the progress and shipping has been slow (discussed in other threads on this forum). The 800 number will say your car is "In Transit" when it is on it's way.

Nice build! The problem is with the shipping carriers, not your build options. Once my car finally started moving it was a prompt delivery, but it took two weeks before the train trip even started.

Thanks! If you only knew the full history (which I'm hesitant to provide here)! We're 69 days in and still no X5. The worst part (besides having the 2011 X5 lease expire on 3/10) is that our excitement generated by building and ordering the vehicle is definitely on the wane. That first drive (if we ever get it) better knock our socks off!

Wow! That's no good at all. Hope you resolve the issues ASAP and get the car you want. Did the dealer contribute to this fiasco?

We finally took delivery on 4/4 and it blows the doors off our 2011 X5. The Ivory White Nappa interior is simply stunning. Thanks Motorwerks for your diligence and fantastic dealer prep. Click image for larger version
