10 years car-less - why is that? I'll bet it feels a little strange to be back behind the wheel. Have you noticed how aggressive and distracted your fellow drivers are? I think it's worse than ten years ago.

Ah yeah... May 8th. Mother's Day, I bet they had the day off maybe? Although I'm not sure if the Spartanburg factory runs 7 days a week or not anyways but maybe that's why there might be a slight delay? Hope you hear good news soon, I'll keep you posted as well.

Lol, I've haven't been 10 years without a vehicle, I've just driven Suv's or crossovers for the last 10 years so being low to the ground in a car just feels foreign!

What's strange is all along the recording said it would finish production May
9th. Halfway through the week, the recording changed to say that production would be finished May 8th! I thought it was weird that production would finish on a Sunday? Fingers crossed that I'll have it by the end of this week or the beginning of next week!

Wow! Congrats! I guess you are on your way now!

Any idea how long it will take for you to get your new X3 after this point?

Dealer hopes to have it by the end of the week! It all depends on how many vehicles they have ready to fill up the carrier. They like it to be full before send them on their way.

Mine was finished April 30th with a May 4th scheduled delivery. I'm still waiting for delivery .

The part that sucks is that the dealer and BMW can't tell me if it's on its way or collecting dust at BMW's parking lot. He says once it's released to the carrier they can't track it.
He says it could be today, it could be a month.....don't call me, I'll call you.

The wait and not knowing when is killing me!

That would kill me too! My dealer is checking daily to see when it gets on the carrier and from there they said it usually is 2 or 3 days tops. I'll keep you posted on mine & please do the same on yours!

"He says it could be today, it could be a month.....don't call me, I'll call you."
That's terrible!!! They can't possibly not know where a car is.

Well he didnít actually SAY ďdonít call me, Iíll call youĒ but that was the gist of the conversation.

He said once it has been released for pickup by the carrier it is out of their system. He said the carrier can take days or weeks until they have a full truck going to my area and donít inform them when it will show up. So he said itís pointless to call him for an update and heíll call me when itís ready.

Have others been able to get BMW to track their cars once it has been released to the carrier?
In other words is he BS-ing me?

Pretty normal, in my experience. Once the carrier has it, they really don't know. My dealer says mine was a train to arrive on/about May 5, but not really sure. Once it's in Vanc, it has to be trucked up here. Once again, they really don't know. Cut your dealer some slack on this and relax.

Thanks for confirming that the dealer is not giving me a line of BS.
They have been very good to this point, and when they told me they didnít know when it would arrive and couldnít track it I didnít challenge them on it.
We're still good.

Well it arrived at the dealer today!
I caught him by surprise as I was driving past the dealership this morning and saw the carrier truck unloading it. Itís filthy from the trip, but still a beauty to my eyes. Iíll pick it up tomorrow afternoon once they get the prep work done.

Some DetailsÖ.
28i
Jet Black (with a top layer of squashed bug juice)
Chestnut interior (not as red as in pictures, looks ďclassicĒ)
Premium and Tech package
Comfort access, heated seats and a few other options
Finished April 30, delivered May 11th.

As a bonus I found $0.37 in the seat cushions

My dealer called today to tell me it was due to ship Sat or Mon. and from there I should have it by next weekend. So I am not sure if he really knows that or he was just estimating. Not going to get too excited until they call me. lol

Dang, you two are getting your's early for sure! I might have to wait a month even though it's been finished since Tuesday... I guess I just live too far out in the sticks!

Congrats to you both, please share pics if you can.

I talked to the dealer today and they said they are showing arrival to the dealer 5/14 or sooner! The 800# said it was released Wednesday to the carrier for transportation. What's your message saying Sabian?
