Hey Sank,

No progress yet. 1-800-831-1117 has been saying "Your vehicle has been released to a carrier and is awaiting transportation to a port of exit." for the last few days. My CA said they should get the vehicle this week, but doesn't look like that's going to happen.

Officially, the X4 goes on sale on July 12, and I wonder whether BMW will wait until then to release the vehicle to me.

No owner manuals available yet either:

Exclamation

So apparently word on the street is the X4 hasn't received EPA approval (in the USA) yet, thus the hold-up.

My X4 has been ready for over a week and is gathering dust in BMW's mega Spartanburg parking lot.


(I flew a quadcopter drone over the parking lot looking for it. There she is! ... Kidding!)

I'm probably the only person who's ordered an X4 28i, lol. Wouldn't be surprised.

Delivery will probably be sometime August, approximately three months' time.
$60k is a lot money to spend to get from point A to point B...

IMHO- get the 35i.

cSurf, what should I be doing then to get me from A to B?

Edit: 1-800-831-1117 says "Your vehicle is being transported to the port of exit."

BEAUTIFUL! .... Gas mileage on the 4 cylinder is one reason I liike th 328i and its no slouch. I finally got to slip into one of these at the BMW Drive event at the Metlife stadium last weekend in white. Had the M Badge on the fender which seemed like a pretty nice touch with the vehicle being M Sport. The 20" wheels looks great and snow tires for 20" are cheaper than 19" so I would go that route too.

Would you be willing to share any details on the purchase? I went to my dealer at Park Ave bmw and the rates are pretty high for this car as far as leasing goes. Made me look at the Macan which I configured for about 59K as well. A bit less bells and whistles but 6 cylinder S and Quad Pipes was worth a look, Porsche leases are pretty tough though IMO so ill be looking at this car again in a couple of months to replace my 2012 328i.

I miss not having the comfort of the car displaying speed limit info (8TH). Unfortunately, ZDB is one of the few options I didn't pick, as I couldn't stomach the price tag.

Any idea whether I can get 8TH retrofitted without the other options? I've read in some places 5AG (Active Blind Spot Detection) is a pre-requisite for this feature. Help!
