Cars go to prep center across the street from factory. When they arive in Cali they check for any damage during transit and remove protective wrap.
BMW are shipped in white BMT trucks in US. There have been cases where the carrier moved the upper deck too low and hit the roof of car below.

at VPC = Ornard. Have you called the 1-800 number? Sounds like your dealer is clueless.

At the dealership where I bought, I'm actually working with the owner. I'm pretty confident he knows what he's talking about.

I did call the 1-800 number, they said that once the car has left the factory, they can no longer track it, it is then the dealership that has the information.

The last thing the 1-800 automated answer said was, "vehicle was at port of exit.."

...I'm kind of confused myself..

A) Dealer says, Mid-Oct.
B) Voice at BMW says, Dealer can track but she can not cause car is no longer with factory.
C) Automated machine says, "vehicle is at port of exit"
D) Website says, "At preparation center"

It couldn't be anymore confusing.

At least your car does exist.... The last time I checked, my car was still in my dreams.

Good luck with the new car, and of'course, post pictures...

No 3rd row for X5 M. You can order 21" wheel as accessory.

Exclamation

i was told late oktober too , then i got a call today that my M is waiting at the dealer for me... i will say without a doubt it has been the most confusing car purchase of my life . no one seemed to know what the hell anything was or when i would see it. im waiting to pick it up ( i wanted the 3m tape to protect the front but of course they dont have the program yet to cut it out.)

i also ordered the painted roof rails and it doesnt have them. the
guy at the dealership said bmw isnt putting them on the car .
the best part is that the dealership i go to has two different places & there is an x5m with rails at their other facility. he has no clue what he is doing. i hope the car makes up for the crappy dealership and all the confusion at the time i "had" to order. my 4.6is experience was so
far a million times better...i am glad i kept it

Are you sure it doesn't have the roof rails? The online tracking didn't list them individually, but mine 'showed up' with the.

I agree 100% that BMW really could improve the communication - both from the factory to the dealer and from the factory to the end user. BMW really misses an opportunity to build excitement through the build process and post-build. They further let themselves down by not being very accurate.

The upside is that they are cranking these ///X5&6M's out quickly. Mine took 3 weeks from order to me in the front seat. That's great.

I think you'll dig it.. quantum leap from the E53 (no dis on that, I had one too).

Good luck with delivery and congrats.
