Ask your CA to trade an allocation with another dealership. I believe there's a dealer in Miami with a surplus of X6 M50i allocations before the end of the year. But if your vehicle is going to be delivered in mid-January, it may start production in early December? Holiday delays and all that...
Iím getting an X5. Not X6. But I agree. The delay is way too long. The dealer did offer some extra cash off. Which is cool. Other than that though I cannot imagine there is too much they can do. Iíd assume the factory is pushing them out as fast as they can.

argg.... called genius and my status is the same as it has been. Just the online tracker changed from "order received" to "scheduled for production" - I guess the online tracker is a few weeks behind! My current status code is 112, and that's what it's been since about a week after my order.

Is that from the automated line or actually getting a human on the line?

Human - when I call genius, I always wait and talk to a rep. They can tell you more than the automated line. She confirms build week, status code and production date (which I don't have one yet).

Spoke to a friend who works for a different car company. He said orders around the holidays are always the toughest. All kinds of union rules about when the factory has to be shut.

Like I’ve said. I’m patient. Hate to wait, but I can. I just don’t want to hear 3-4 weeks and then it’s 3-4 months.

One day I’m going to show up at work. Grab some coffee. Hang up my coat. Spend some time replying to emails. Finally, I’m going to load up mygarage and see that the status of my build has changed from ‘order received’.

Today is not that day.

Sorry to hear that! If it makes you feel any better, I spoke to someone on the genius line yesterday and he confirmed that the mygarage site is experiencing technical difficulties over the last few weeks. I have been stuck in "production begins" status since 11/8, but they are still confirming that the car is estimated to be completed tomorrow. The guy on the phone told me that sometimes you will see almost all of the steps in mygarage completed in 24-48 hours.

Either way, I'm still pressing refresh pretty consistently over here.

Too funny. I think even after the car gets delivered I may hit the mygarage sites a few times just for nostalgia.

I just called. They said they have the order but no production confirmation date. Sheesh. Placed the order approaching a month ago and not even scheduled. The rep said try again Monday. I said OK. But we both know I am going to try the site ten times a day and call at least 3 times before next Monday.

It's not a mystery why the website is constantly overloaded, is it?

My status changed!

In the last 2 hours, it went from Production Begins through Exterior Body Assembly, In Paint Booth, and now it says Entering Assembly Line.

Only a matter of time now. Probably get the car in 2 weeks unless you're doing the PCD.

This brings back memories from a couple months ago... I remember the excitement and anticipation.

I had been discussing the order with my dealer for a while, but I placed the order on Monday, 11/4 and my CA found an allocation and had a production number for me by the end of the day.

It went from "awaiting production" to "production begins" on Thursday 11/7, and according to the Genius phone line, it is scheduled to be completed today.

Nice! Sounds like they modified a build to speed things up. My CA tried to do that but he couldn't get one I guess. Mine is scheduled for a week 50 build and status is scheduled for production. My guess is I should get a vin number next week.

Mine is also an X6 M50i, and I think build slots for those are a bit easier to come by than for the X5.
