Just called and got an estimated completion date of 12/16!
Quick question. What does completion mean? Done with all quality checks and awaiting shipping? Or just finished being assembled?

TIA

I think it just means finished assembly. Otherwise my 12/5 completion date would already show some assembly progress via genius or online.

FWIW my estimated completion date is 12/3 and I just saw movement online from production begins to entered assembly today. Automated # still says completion date of 12/3

Automated # seems like it might be a little behind (same for the online tracker) though I have yet to call the genius line

I feel like we are going to get our cars around the same time. Then I’ll be too busy driving it around to mess around here!

This is awesome! Mine is scheduled for 12/14. How did you get the update? Was it from the genius line or your CA?

So how many times have you checked today? It's the 5th!

Mine still says the 16th but it hasn't stopped me from checking every hour!

haha! I've been checking litterally every hour! Right now it's in "Entering Assembly Line". So far today it's moved from "Production Begins" to this stage in about 3 hours.

Just checked mine....production begins! I was a week 51 so looks like we might have moved up a little! Texted my CA for a full status update.

My CA said once the car is built it can be at the dealership in 2 or 3 days.

Crossing my fingers! I know with our Navigator it came from Kentucky is just a couple days after completion.

Slightly off topic. Do they build cars on the weekends or is strictly Mon-Fri.?

Mine is showing status 112, if I change rims style now would this move me to the "back of the line"? When and where can I see what week I'm scheduled for build?

Mine rolled off the assembly line 10/24 and showed up at my dealer in Wisconsin on 10/29. CA told me they've had X5s as quick as 2 days after completion.

I can confirm that they do build cars 7 days per week. When I was obsessively checking VINs on Mdecoder's website waiting for my mine I regularly saw cars with Saturday and Sunday build dates. This is America and we want our things now. None of this Monday - Friday bullshit like in Germany LOL

Too funny. Originally my CA said my build was January 1. I was thinking wow they really keep these guys working. It reminded me of the Simpsons when the Germans bought the Nuclear Power Plant!

Your place in line doesn't change when you change options, unless you select something that requires a part that's not available
