Well I got mine from incoming production, i.e. the car was already specified and nothing on it could be changed. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if mine was already being shipped when I signed on the dotted line.Rob V said:Can I ask how long it took from the time you placed the order until the day you received it? I ordered my X3 instead of picking one on the lot because I still have about 3 months left on my current lease and by ordering it i would only overlap about 1 and half months. But if it arrives too early then that it more time that I have to spend with double car payments. That would suck! The sales rep gave me a time frame for which I had to place the order so that I would still qualify for the current Lease Promo and not get the car too late. I'm hoping his timing wasn't too soon.
Believe it or not it was exactly 3 weeks from signing the order form to collecting the car (Mar 31st to Apr 21st).
As for ordering from scratch I was told 2-3 months for a custom order, so I agreed to take an incoming car instead...couldn't be bothered to wait. Also I wanted to take advantage of BMW Canada's lease deal which I thought was ending Mar 31.
