lost

My X5 45E was cleared end of last week, but they don't manage to track the car, so they don't know where it is. Somewhere on a transport, but at my dealer they don't know when it is going to arrive at the dealership. I really don't know how they manage to fuck it up every time, but they do it. The dealer received a very angry e-mail of me this afternoon.

That's nice. It is somewhere between Brussels and somewhere in Flanders. How do they lose a truck with 8 cars on it.

Mine was on the docks in Zeebrugge for 3 weeks. I can understand that handeling hundreds of cars is difficult and difficult to please everyone.

The X5's HV batteries are essentially in three parts with a total of 12 modules; one down lower each side of the driveshaft, and one higher up towards the back across behind them, all held together with some brackets. The one in the back is why the floor is higher in the X5 45e and you can't get the third row seats. FWIW, they had to redesign the fuel tank, and made it out of SS rather than (I think) plastic like on the other models.

SS likely cuz it's pressurized to preserve fuel state versus running a mandatory fuel use program like other brands 👍🏼

Which dealership did you get yours done? Mine is still stuck at the dealer, they hit a snag last week in trying to get additional programming done. Maybe they can call your center to compare notes.

Thanks for that. I will let them know. BMW has offered to trade assist me out of it, only problem is there are no 45es out there short of a 2 to 3 month wait. Alternatively go with the 40i.... all crap choices.

Mine went into the dealer for testing Dec 30th... given it had already short circuited, I wasn't super surprised to hear that it has the 'issue'. 11 days later and not fixed... have been bashing about in a 750 which has been fun but I thought I'd be picking it up repaired... alas no eta on parts...

When I complained to BMW back in November about the lack of information, they told me it was down to BMW UK to update them.
I guess deliveries going forward will be quicker with one less stop!

Have you picked up your car yet Martin?
