PNW/Seattle Owners

During my research process, build, and post delivery; noticed there seem to be a ton of X3M/X3M owners in the PNW. Wanted to created a thread for us to have a centralized place to talk shop, coordinate a meetup, you name it!

Picture of my LCI shortly post delivery to kick it off:

Cool! I look forward to seeing how many there are in the Seattle area! Picture taken in Leavenworth after crossing the pass in heavy snow. She handled it like a champ!

Looking forward to joining you all soon! I was recently told by the BMW Genius staff that my build week would be February 7th but I was pleasantly surprised to see today that the status changed to Production Begins and my X3M has been assigned a VIN. Very exciting!

But here is my baby hauler.

Issaquah is the best. Seriously. Just don't tell anyone.

Made a friend when looking at a place in Issaquah. Thing was setup beautifully and actually got to chat with the owner

Helped solidify the decision on painted reflectors on mine with how bright that damn orange is on his car

Two bad @ss ///M vehicles right there! Did you by chance use the parking assistant when parking there? I'm curious to see how that works in real life.

9.9 times out of 10 I park for myself. I've used the system though a couple times just to see how it works and really no complains other than having to trust it's distance judgement in the front. Cuts it pretty dang close for my liking

Haha we actually are. I walk by your house several times a week and always look out for your X3M or M340i

Saw a group of 20+ exotics at TutaBella in Issaquah today, and reminded me to see about us getting a coffee/brunch meet together soon

How would Sunday 3/6 work for most?

I'm hoping that weekend of 3/6 is when my X3MC will be at BMW Northwest ready for pickup. Not sure though as it went to IN TRANSIT status on 2/9 and it looks like based on other's timelines here, it takes about a month to get to our PNW Dealers once it leaves the factory.

Yup, about a month here, and tracking it once it was on rail was next to impossible. I'd see if your SA has any updates or guesses when it arrived. Who did you order through? I bought mine with Kevin at BMWNW

I work with Jimmy Barber there. I'll probably reach out the first week of March if I don't hear from him first. I'm just being impatient! LOL

I've grown up and lived in Southern California my entire life and will be relocating to West Linn, Oregon with my family in a few months. Hope to meet a few of you up!

That train ride was brutal as it was supposed to arrive in Renton on 2/27 but didn't show up until 3/20. Nevertheless I'm glad it's all over and took delivery today. I've never been so excited to see Michelin tires as well.
