Yep, you can check out the classes available for a fee in advance - range from $299+ most I recall is around $1500 for one day M school:

Yeah usually PCD is around 2 weeks after delivery. This time of year with the holidays, it gets extended to around 3.

My X5 has been completed 2 weeks ago and it'll be 2 more weeks until PCD

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.
I had a similar experience.
Ordered: 10/31
Scheduled for production: 11/8
Production begins/VIN assigned: 11/11

Then it just sat like that for 2 weeks and then in a matter of 1 day 11/22 in the PM until now 11/23 AM it went through
Exterior body assembly
In the paint booth
Entering assembly line
Assembly in progress
Quality Check
Final Assembly

And is now Ready for Transport

MY guess is 2-3 weeks after your VIN is assigned it will be made and it is probably going through the factory that entire time but they just update the website at the very end.

The online tracker isn’t accurate. My best info came from my sales rep. They can look it up and tell you the correct status. I texted my sales rep during the process, which is a lot easier than playing telephone tag.

Also, the car gets built within a day once they start it. Then sometimes they sit in QA for a while, but often not.

My biggest delay was delivery. Took more than a week from being loaded on the truck to delivery to my dealer in Delaware. About a 10-hour drive. Unfortunately the dealer can NOT track the transport vehicle.

Once delivered they detail the car so that adds at least another day or two.

Try to memorize the manual. It will take your mind off waiting for your car.

The website is really messed up, it shows xLine right now instead of the M Sport Package, 20" wheels instead of the 22's and so on. Perhaps it will take another few days before it will appear as it was showing before when it was in "Order accepted" with the real options I have ordered.
Anyway, after I have ordered it I added the M Sport Brakes on it. Now I am thinking about adding also the Luggage Compartment Package. Should I, shouldn't I?

Ok this is painful...the car was delivered to my dealer on Sunday, but they haven't received the MSO yet. Looks like I may have to wait until Saturday to pick it up!

Do you have to call to get the VIN or is it posted on the MyGarage site?

Either your dealer or BMW Genius - they'll give you a build week.

If you recently called the Genius, I'd call/text your dealer BMW client/sales advisor. In the past I've alternated texting my sales advisor as Genius maintains logs of your call. Nothing worse than getting called out for calling frequently and getting the same answers LOL.

Too funny. Last time I called the genius line the guy who answered said, “Hold on, let me see if you called before.” I was like come on, we both know I’ve called many, many times before!

Here is a list of common status codes and their meanings:

0 Order deleted by NA
17 Order not Specified
37 Order is at BMW NA
87 Production Week Assigned
97 Order sent to AG
100 Order deleted by AG
101 Error in data transmitted
102 Special Order (no Prod Week)
105 Order out of Prod. Period
111 Order Accepted at AG
112 Order scheduled for Production

**** Up to this point you can still make changes to the car such as options, colors, etc. However, once the car goes to status 150, you cannot make any changes since the car is now in production

150 Production Started
151 Body Shop Started
152 Paint Shop Started
153 Assembly Started
155 Production Completed
160 Released to Distribution
168 AG Stock
170 Waiting Workshop
172 Planned for Workshop
174 Workshop Entry
176 Workshop Complete
180 Waiting for Export Dispatch
181 Waiting for Domestic Dispatch
182 Schedule for Carrier
190 In transit to port of exit
191 Returned to BMW AG
193 Arrived at Port of Exit
194 Selected for Shipment
195 Shipped from Port of Exit
196 Shipment Arrival at destination port

Left factory 11/25, arrived at dealer 11/27. Picked up 11/30!! This thread helped ease the wait for sure.

Fantastic! Congrats!

I’m just going to split hairs here while I wait...
“Production Begins” is a bit of a stretch. I think more accurate is when you look below “Production Begins” and you see “ Today's the day: your BMW has entered the production queue.”

I mean entering the queue isn’t really the same as production begins...

Saying I’m in the queue to purchase tickets isn’t the same as purchasing tickets...

Like I said...splitting hairs.
