How long did it take to get your N63?
I've had my car on a lift for a month. Just confirmed that I am first on the list at the dealership it was ordered through. After speaking to some people I know (local BMW service and parts managers) it sounds like 7 to 10 weeks has been average lately. I know many of you waited several months before the Bang settlement.

So how long did you wait / have you been waiting??

The dealership placed an order on my n63 engine (Bang Class Settlement) on 10/28/2018 and I just got a call from the dealer saying my engine is at the dealership waiting for me!!

Car died 3/3/19. Order was placed 3/14 from Bimmerzone. I was first in line at Faulkner BMW for an N63TU. Motor arrived 4/26. Installed by 5/3, then I left for vacation with several errors present. Came home last Sunday and got rid of my last error today.

Note - The cam followers are not installed in the new short block! You need to take the old one and install them in the new motor. This knowledge would have saved me a week of hassle and stress. The guy at the dealership parts counter this morning told me that they have had mechanics do the same thing, so I guess I don't feel too bad about it. Just happy to have my X6 back!

Let me know if I can help, I did about 70% of this job myself.
