Then add the amount of time it would take to make it from the factory to dealer through distribution. Obviously if you are in the west coast it will take longer to get there....

When I put the order in my dealer found a car that was in "status 5"? Not sure what that was. He said something like: the car was allocated to a dealer but they did not want it anymore. Anyways it went into production 2 weeks after I ordered and should be at the dealer today . Total process took less than 4 weeks.

He said something like if he had not found that car, it would have taken couple of mnths to build it.

Good luck.
Cool, thank you. Please post the pics of your new X5M.

When opting for Performance Center Delivery you not only learn the features of your new BMW but you will have the opportunity to receive special driver training from the experts!
Your Ultimate Delivery Experience will take place in Greenville, South Carolina, and will include:
Airport pickup for you and a companion
First-class hotel for the night
Complimentary dinner and following day’s breakfast and lunch for two
Transportation from the hotel to the Performance Center

During your Ultimate Delivery Experience, enjoy:
Two-hour vehicle overview with a Delivery & Product specialist explaining the vehicle's features and functions.
Behind-the-wheel time in a BMW similar to the one you purchased with a professional instructor guiding you through multiple driving exercises
A visit to the Zentrum to see the history of BMW from airplane engines to James Bond's car to the Hydrogen car
A tour of the BMW Manufacturing Plant (Subject to Availability)



Quoted straight from the bmwusa.com website.
Sounds like definately a fun experience. Spoke with my dealer today and he says that it could easily take up to 9 weeks for the M model.
I am waiting for the 2013 model to be picked up at the end of next October in Spartanburg.

I wonder how was the "first class hotel" and food?

"First class" = Marriot. Hear that the food and accomodation as well as the experience is very good.

You will be staying at Greenville Mariott.

Dinner is from fixed BMW PC menu as shown below. Pick one from each section. We asked for wine and the answer was "We don't serve liquor today". We later noticed that people few tables down were being served wine. Asked the waitress again and she said "oh, they must have brought their own". Complained to the manager at checkout next day. They were extremely apologetic. He said that BMW does not pay for wine and the waitress gave the wrong answer. They gave us a nicely wrapped wine bottle to go when they brought our luggage down. Attached are some pics from my trip.

If you don't want to drive your car back, they will ship it to your dealer.

Thanks!

That's actually a pretty good looking menu.
Lesson learned: will bring our own bottle of wine, just in case.

My wife was asking whether she would get to drive the car around the course etc... Since it will be 2 of us. It will be "her" car, so it'd be nice for her to drive it in the extreme situations.


Also, if you do elect to ship the car to the dealer, is that pricey?

Thanks a bunch!
