One of my favourite bits of dealership buffoonery to date!

Pretty good news. April not long now

You can see the dealer rubbing his hands together selling the last X3 left in Austria

Fingers crossed Waffle

There have been a few delivered outside of the more normal time lines. I know of one custom order completed towards the end of Nov and delivered a week before mine (15 Feb).

I still think 14 weeks is wildly optimistic - sorry!

I think its closer to 14 months than 14 weeks

Another dealer full of the smelly stuff

Ask for a screen dump of their order system showing the production week and current event code

I would advise anyone whose car won't go into production until April and who has ordered the professional multimedia package to try to add 6NR for mobile applications to your order as it seems that you won't be able to retrofit it. It has huge potential. You need an iPhone 3GS or later.

I have just picked up a MINI JCW that has the MINI connected on and although at the moment it is a bit limited, the Google search fuctionality is very good and as you say there is a lot of future potential there. I will certainly be speccing it on the X3.

If it's not built yet, may try to change to 19" alloys and the HUD display. Any thoughts on if HUD is worth the money ?. Has anybody else ordered this.

Build Date

I finally got my build date from Lex Autolease. Mar 21st! This was for an order confirmation of 30th Nov, 2010!

If this is to be believed, my 9th May delivery date sounds right......

Will start holding my breath! My 520d Msport E60 knows it's going back - it's started making a rattle just to piss me off!

If you garage the E60 at night, park a tool box next to the left front tire overnight. That kind of threat will cause the rattle will go away ...

Have now been told my X3 will be at the dealership early July.
Have asked to add 19" Alloys and the xLine pack, only if it does not knock back delivery any further.

I would recommend that you add 6NR too, especially if you have or intend to get an iPhone. And even if you don't add it for resale value

Strange that people get told this because I changed my order 3 times with the last change being only 3 weeks before it entered production.

I don't understand how I could do this without affecting the build week and other people are stopped from making any changes?

I suspect more dealership BS
