well this speed is awesome! hope they are rushing us so we can catch a ship that week.

doesn't help to much to rush production if we have to wait 2 weeks to catch a boat! anybody in the know have any info on the turn-around times on shipping?

Production Started!

I just called the 800# and as of this morning my car has started production:headbang:

They said that it has a estimated completion date of June 4th and I should take delivery around 4 weeks after that. Of course that all depends on how the ships schedule is.

I am still showing up as a 2005 X3 on the wesite though:iono:Maybe in the next couple of days it will be updated.

The website hasn't updated for me yet, nor has the automated service (no confirmed anything). But I just called and talked to a real live human haha and they say it looks like I'm a week 23er as well. Sweet!

Anyone still in the dark, I suggest talking to a live person!

My website wasn't updated this morning, so I deleted the 330 it showed and re-added my production number which made it show my 135, give it a shot.

Seem like i'm in the week 23 group too. About a month ago (when the car was ordered) i was told that it would go into production week 21, but this seems to have been changed.

Since i live only a 3 hour boatride and about 5 hours driving from Germany, my car is supposed to be delivered in week 26 or 27 at the latest..

I ordered a montego blue 3-door hatchback 118i. Probarbly at about the same price as a 135i for you guys in USA.

well, at least you don't have to wait a month for it to cross an ocean... does that make you feel better?

i wonder what keeps the price so low in america in spite of our low dollar to your euro... i would assume volume sales?

When did you place the order? Mine said that for a while and when i spoke to someone it was already in production. might want to speak to a live person.

Awesome! My production began this morning & it will be done on June 5th. So I should be receiving it the first or second week of July.


Unfortunately, the website still has not been updated (even when I removed & added my production number again) I guess I will just have to rely on the 800 number it seems.
