Had another test drive in a 2.0d M sport today and went through my final spec. The car is down as a week 34 build although apparently there is a shortage of the brushed aluminium trim which could delay the car by 10 weeks.

My dealer has requested the changes and is going to let me know what happens to the build week.

Got a call from my dealer. Car's at Southampton and should be with the dealer in 10-14 days!!!! TWO weeks ahead of schedule!!!! Get in........

Will know exact delivery date next week. Plan to get the iPad holder as a dealer fit....also have ordered the titanium grill as well. Hopefully wouldn't delay things as it stands.

So Bertie, do I take it that you were expecting delivery around the 16th July? I only ask because my dealer has told me week 30 for delivery which according to my calendar is the week beginning 18th July so I am wondering if our cars are in the same shipment.

Changed my spec. again (4th time since order) by adding SP glass. Dealer advised against and offered after market fitting of tinted film instead. Today, I got confirmation, the factory confirmed 'no change' still production week 34.

That's it now, maxed out on $, so no matter how many members punt xenon's and 19"ers I wont add them...

Still waiting for my dealer to get back to me with news of any change. I am assuming that it is ok as he hasn't called, but will chase him tomorrow just to confirm.

My spec grew quite a lot form the initial version, but is finalised as:
  • 2.0d M sport
  • Black sapphire
  • Oyster leather
  • Auto
  • Visibility pack
  • Pro media pack
  • Heated seats
  • Sun protection glass
  • DAB radio
  • Internet etc
  • Business speakers
  • Storage pack
  • 19 inch alloys

Trying to resist adding the reversing camera at the moment as the demo we tried had this and I am sucker for gadgets...

I asked my stealer what the current UK wait is and he said orders placed now are 10 months......... surely that will come down if you are brave enough to order and wait. I guess shorter Q5 lead times will mean extra business from pissed potential X3 customers who dont want to wait, in the UK at least. It would be good if we had a german member who new what the lead time there is?

Yep, my delivery week was July 18th. 2 weeks back he did say end June as a delivery date but was bit sceptical given bad experiences by others. But true to his word delivery now seems most likly within next fortnight...

I made god know's how many revisions, put stuff on, took stuff off. Eventually I stoped when I was told I could make no more changes as they were putting it together in the factory.

Keep your fingers crossed, you might even get it earlier, mine was penned in for the 26th June and I picked it up on the 17th, in fact I could of picked it up on the 12th.

Congratulations

I haven't heard anything yet though, but it may take a little longer as the car will have to be put on the ferry from Portsmouth to Guernsey.

Also, I know that some BMW dealers have been reported to give poor customer care, well imagine if you would a dealer who has a total monopoly

Well the CS of Sytner Newport has been great. My Car is back with the dealer this morning where they are trying to rectify the Nav screen problem. They told me it could be a 2 day job depending on parts. they have been very apologetic, sorted out an X1Msport courtesy car straight away.

Letís hope they can find the cause and sort it ASAP.

Picked up from dealer this evening and it's BRILLIANT

First impression: The real life colour is miles apart from the configurator. (I went for blue water with xline and red brown interior with fine line trim). The titanium grill was still on order so will have to wait till next week. The xenons look fab.

Handling: surprisingly agile and pretty smooth. Missus quite pleased with this as she will be using it more than me (she's not a big fan of the coupe at times)

Dealer: nothing but praise for the chaps at Soper Lincoln. Highly recommend them to anyone around east midlands/ south Yorkshire etc...

And before anyone asks....the pics will have to wait till the weekend as away till late Friday on work

Unhappy is it worth the wait

Ordered mine Dec 6th. Still waiting.
Given April then May then June as delivery. Have been told it will arrive at the dealer 4th July.

Forgotten what it looks like never mind drives like.
Hope it is worth the wait.

I must admit if I realised it would be 8 months to wait I may have bought something else. What I don't know.

Let's hope I will be smiling next week.

Ordered a 30d MSport in carbon block in April and the leasing company quoted mid-December for deliver! A long wait but I have to keep my current company car until September anyway.

I've since asked the dealer for an update and it's good news. As it's a 30d, they're now quoting late September (wk 39)

Has anyone had any luck with the W&W delivery tracking website recently for a UK order?

Having spent several hours 'playing' and examining dozens of listed deliveries, I've come to the conclusion that cars destined for the UK are no longer on this system, as I can't find any recently listed cars heading for the UK..

Not a single car coming to the UK? - I don't think so..

Agree. Mine should be on a ship but no sign now after 3 weeks of looking. Shame there is no other way (as calling stealer is pointless).
