Just called the 800 automated line again, production completion date pulled in to 11/30. Previously 12/3. Any thoughts on shipping? I am located in Boise, Idaho.

Now showing car is at "Quality Check". Completion date must have really been pushed forward by a week.

Do you or does anyone know if the train departs from the factory once a day? or what is the schedule?

I haven't come across this. I don't know if I'm on a car carrier or train.

My 45e Week 49 build is still on "Production Begins." This is like watching siblings open presents on Christmas... patience, patience, my turn will come.

I am in the same boat, although mine is a M50i. Been on "Production Begins" for a long time now.

you shoudl be able to see first hand if they are closed today.. entering assembly line is usually a step the moves forward within 24 hours or so. that will give us a definitive answer about the factory working on Thanksgiving or not ! NICE coincidence mdm_boulder

Forgive me folks if I am encroaching your 45e space since mine is not 45e, but is 49th-week build order. I thought of creating a generic 49th-week build timeline thread, and will still do so if you guys prefer me to.

Vehicle: X5 XDrive 40i (Executive + All major packages/options)

Deal negotiated with the dealer: Sat, 24th OCT 2020
Dealer placed the order with BMW: Mon, 26th OCT 2020
Online status changed to "Scheduled for Production": Fri, 30th OCT 2020
Online status changed to "Production Begins": Tue, 16th NOV 2020

Twice a week automated status check, once a week Genius call confirmed Week 49 build, with expected build completion Dec 6, 2020.

Calls on Tue, 24th NOV 2020, expected build completion 01st Dec 2020.

Fingers crossed, hope we get to see our vehicle soon.

@ChiefOne my vote is to stick around as long as you promise to send pics when you take delivery!

Mine was completed 11/24 and my CA messaged yesterday and said looks will be ready for pickup this weekend. Was a little longer from order as we did the ivory with blue leather.

Your CA thinks you will get delivered in Houston withing 4 days of production ? whoa.. I certainly hope it is the case for me as well, but that would be quite impressive
