Ordered my X3 35i Jet Black (Quick Opinion / Review Added)

I got:

X3 xDrive35i
Jet Black
Chestnut Leather
Sports Activity Package
Premium Package
Technology Package
Dynamic Handling Package
Heated Front Seats / Steering Wheel
Headup Display
Auto High Beams
SAT Radio
Upgraded Sound
Comfort Access
19" Rims

The only thing I wish that BMW added as options to the X3 is Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, and Ventilated Seats... but I guess you can't have everything.

I ordered Monday April 18th, it was in production the next day. The phone center says estimated completion date is April 27th. Not bad.

Post Delivery:

So the car was delivered in less than 2 weeks... very fast! So far I love the car, it rides very nice and the transmission is simply amazing. So far my only concerns are the following:

- The doors are difficult to close (to the satisfaction of the sensors at least)
- The gas mileage doesn't seem to be as good as claimed by BMW - but maybe this is part of the break in period
- The windows seem slow to go up and down
- The inner projector headlamp is fake... there is no light in it.
- The navigation bug is for real... if you get to your destination and don't turn off the car or start a new destination the car won't stop pointing you to your destination

What I love about the car:

- The transmission is fabulous
- The auto-hold feature is really convenient
- The top view feature is far more useful then I would of thought

I wonder how this happens! Unfortunately I go out of town on the 29th until May 5th so I won't be able to pick up the car until May 6th. Then I leave May 8th again until the 12th! Going to have no time with my new car!

Congrats, very similar to mine but I have metallic black and the 308 18" wheels. You are going to love the X3 once you take delivery. Again, congrats!

Thats great!
I know the wait is gonna kill you.
Make sure you ask the dealer the odometer reading and tell him NOT to let anybody test drive it.

Our local dealer has no X3s to demo, so hed love to use one that has a delayed pickup for people to romp around in.

Yeah I already did that.... I never asked for the odometer reading though. I guess I will do that.

I would think that any reputable dealer would not allow a test drive to anyone when the X3 was ordered by you.

I Ordered my Sapphire Black X3 28i on 4/16/2011 Moved to production on 4/21 and completed production on 4/29. Currently 1-800 number says "Your vehicle was released to a carrier and awaiting transportation to the port of exit". The BMW USA website still shows as production started.

Hopefully I will get to drive my own BMW(first one) by next weekend.

I had the opportunity to pick up the car this morning but the dealer told me it wouldn't be ready until Monday at the soonest. I guess I am still waiting until Friday.

Great color combination, DesiGeek. I chose the same colors for my 35i. I like the contrast of the black exterior with the light beige interior.

What trim did you go with?

I went by the dealer to see the car on the way out. I tried to upload pictures but it keeps on timing out (probably b/c I am tethering). Really happy with the car and I can't wait to pick it up Friday.

I have my x3 exactly same as yours. Also the status at "Track my 2011 X3 28i" shows same as yours. only difference is I have not received any call from CA on the delivery date

Looking forward to the pictures!!

This makes me sick, I went to my dealership yesterday, I finally decided to pick the X3 over the 5 series touring and then I had the news... My X3 will be ready on the 16th January 2012!!!!
And you guys have it in a couple of weeks... djeeses, bmw is really fucking us Europeans!
