How long have you lived in America?

Hehe, my brother's neighbor in the Balkans is driving and orange Ford Mustang and is a local playboy.
When he referred to it as "my luxury sports car" I laughed so hard he almost punched me, that is after
I painted it as the US blue collar status symbol that it really is LMFAO.

Picking up today at 10am Est, worried about the P-zero summer tires it comes with. At pickup it will be 26 degrees out. I only have to travel 21 miles back home, should I be worried?

When I picked up on the 23rd, there were two trucks at the Tysons DC unloading, and my car was scheduled to arrive the day prior. I have a feeling they are turning them around pretty quick and have a steady flow of them arriving. Hopefully you’ll be fine.

I'm going to go test drive an X5M... I'm tired of this.
Wow. Ballin over there aren’t you, lol. They’re nice, however I think they’re overpriced. I would consider the X3M for price. But this is just my opinion. My moms X5 was kinda always in the shop lol. Never seen brand new car that’s a non performing car require brakes in 18 months

Nah, not at all. I'm looking at a 2013, they are sub 25k now. I've always had a soft spot for M cars, had both the e39 and e60 m5's and about 8 other bmw's along the years.

I only sold my stealth the take advantage of the NJ rebate and upgrade to the 2021 refresh. At this point I'm going to lose out on the rebate. The delivery date has now been moved back 3 times for a car I ordered in October. I've been without a daily driver since and I'm not working from home since I'm essential.

I'll probably cancel the order, buy the X5M, drive that until July and order again when the 5k rebate is back in effect.

(I'm looking at X5M's as a weekend/lowe's hauler anyway)

Got the email this morning....VIN 876xxx...ordered on 10/22...white/blk with FSD...est is still 12/26-12/31...two questions for you guys.
1. after getting VIN, how long does it usually take before car arrives...does this mean car has been made and waiting for delivery to my locale?
2. why are they asking for payment now before I even see the car??...when i bought my last 2018 LR model 3 I didnt pay until i picked up the car and even then I refused to pay until i inspected the car first.

Updated date range for the day. Haven't received any texts yet though. I'm thinking that the SoCal folks should start getting contacted soon (26-28?) if we're to schedule pickups on the 29-31...

Pretty much a day by day slip over the last few days - nothing dramatic in the change history like earlier so far.

12/26: 12/26-31 <-- current, no vin
12/25: 12/25-31
12/24: 12/24-31
12/23: 12/29-31
12/23: 12/23-31
12/22: 12/22-31
12/21: 12/28-31
12/21: 12/27-31

12/18: 12/22-31

Sorry to hear that. I ordered 10-17, was set for delivery Tuesday. They bumped to to 12/31. I couldn’t bail now being sooo close. Seems like a positive start to 2021 IMO. didn't we have the same spec ordered?

X5M has always been on my list. Good luck

Ahhh gotcha. Totally understand that. Like you said, if your delivery has been moved and or your don’t have vin by now it will be hard to get it done by eoy. Not impossible but hard.
