Good luck to Canadian orders

https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.cbc.ca/amp/1.5463266

CN network is down on eastern Canada, so no cars are going go Halifax and the cars there at the port isnít going anywhere..

God knows when I will get mine, ordered on Nov 16 2019

Geez that's a long time! Your dealer mustn't have had any allocations when your order was placed? What do you have coming?

I have no idea, vehicle has a production date of Dec 19, 2019. Dealer told me it was in Kentucky on Jan 17, I waited on Feb 6 and asked again, they told me it was in Ohio, so it barely even moved during those 3 weeks, absolutely have no idea why it takes so long.

That makes no sense. I've talked to other people in eastern Canada who had theirs within 3 weeks of production being finished.

Super weird. Do you have a VIN? Call BMW Canada and get some info on where your car is. Tell them about your experience with your dealership too.

Yes I have the VIN, called them but not much info from them, bmw Canada told me only dealer can track the vehicle once it leaves the factory. This is now getting super frustrated, I saw other Canadian buyer on this forum have a production date 1 month later than mine has already got the vehicle picked up..

The status was 155 on Jan 2, and I checked again on Jan 9, it was 160. On Jan 17, they actually captured a picture for me showing the vehicle was in Kentucky.

Your dealer might truck your vehicle to Montreal from Halifax, not far away. Btw I called my dealer today and they told me for whatever reason now the vehicle is now in Birmingham with some other vehicles together. Good news is that they will try to find someway to get it faster other than wait for the train.

Mine was ordered with Cognac vernasca upholstery, it has a SOP date of 04/20. So I won't be seeing my car any time soon. Hope to take delivery in June / July, just in time for the summer season..

I ordered mine first week of December, had a prod date of mid Jan and got the car Feb 10th. I'm in Western Canada.

X5 40i msport, professional driver package, premium package, massage seats, tanzanite blue. other than the paint it is pretty standard build.
