Order Placed for 2020 X5 PCD

I put my order in for a 2020 X5 xDrive40i. Going to be my fourth Performance Center Delivery, scheduled for 10/3/2019. Here's my build:

Phytonic Blue
Black Extended Merino
Anthracite-Brown Poplar Matte Trim
M Sport Package
Executive Package
Luxury Seating Package
Air Suspension
Integral Active Steering
M Sport Brakes
Front and Rear Heated Seats
Heated Steering Wheel and Armrests
Harmon Kardon Sound
Glass Controls
Extended Shadowline Trim
Acoustic Glass
Space Saver Spare

I placed the order on 8/15 and my CA gave me a Build Sheet and Production Number on 8/20. When I checked the online tracker, the vehicle was Scheduled for Production. The next day (8/21) the status moved to Production Begins and I was given a VIN. I also received my confirmation email for the Performance Center on 8/21.

It's going to be a long 6 weeks until delivery!

Congrats, great build. Can you give us some numbers on discount
Off MSRP and did your dealer mention finance incentives, and any other rebates? Thanks.

I got what I consider to be a pretty good deal, but certainly not the best from what I see others have gotten on this forum. I have had only positive experiences with my local dealer and I felt I wanted to continue dealing with them, even though I probably could have saved some money if I bought the car elsewhere. As far as finance incentives and rebates, Iíll need to wait until September as I wonít be signing the paperwork until 7-10 days before my Performance Center Delivery on 10/3.

Wow, that's the exact build I too ordered on 08/19. The only difference being its white exterior and inherior. I'm based in New England. The status moved to production begins as of today. All the best. We might get out Suv about the same time.

Iím doing the Performance Center Delivery so I wonít get mine until early October. If you are picking yours up from the local dealer, youíll likely get yours sooner.

As far as the build goes, I sometimes think I overdid it with the options, but I didnít want to regret leaving something out.

Post some pics when you take delivery!

Thanks for the information - yes I'm taking delivery at the dealer. Yes, will post pictures when I take delivery.

I'd be happy to give a few tips!

First, I'm sure you've read other people's PCD reports. Here's my most recent one from when I picked up my F15 X5 in November 2013:

https://f15.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=910424

And now the tips:

1. Have fun. I don't think there is a better way to take delivery of a new car than BMW PCD.

2. When you are driving an X5 on the track, remember NYC. Not New York City, it 's "Not Your Car". Feel free to push the car as hard as you can. The X5 is no M3, but it's performance capabilities are likely better than you think. One of the best things about PCD is getting to learn things like this about the X5 without thrashing your brand new car.

3. At the end of the track session, the professional driver will ask for people who want to go for a high speed run. Do it. I guarantee you will be impressed with what they can do with an M3 or M5 on the track. Their car control skills are awesome.

4. Get as much as you can from the off-road portion of the day. On the special off-road course they will teach you about features like Hill Descent Control that are pretty cool. Even if you never take your X5 off road, it's very cool to see the capabilities of these vehicles.

5. Don't rush the delivery process. The Delivery Specialists are really good at teaching you about your new car. They will demonstrate everything to you, including all of the new iDrive features and will set up all of the Connected Drive stuff. Ask lots of questions.

6. Don't miss the factory tour. Sometimes the tour is unavailable when BMW is getting ready to release a new vehicle produced in Spartanburg. Hopefully it will be available when you are there. A great experience.

7. The Zentrum museum is cool, but won't take very long to see everything. There is a shop near the front in case you want to purchase BMW and/or Performance Center merch.

8. Take plenty of pictures and then post a report when you get home.

Bonus tip: If you have the time, go a little bit out of your way to check out some neat places you've never been to. I've done the Tail of the Dragon after a prior PCD but I'm thinking I might drive the Blue Ridge Parkway this time around.

Good luck! I'm looking forward to hearing about your trip and new X5.

Hello, had a couple of questions about PCD. First, Congrats on your new G05 PCD, nice build! I've done a Munich PCD in the past and received that 5% European discount along with an additional discount via my dealer. I live in the Maryland area. I'm considering doing a PCD for the experience, catching a train down and back. I'm not planning to put the miles / time on my truck to drive back home. I think the dealers trucking cost is somewhere between $800-$900 ( my guess until I confirm ).

I'll spend about $400 on a round trip train ticket for my wife & I.
Am I correct in that there's no PCD discount from BMW NA?

Hope that all made sense. Thanks

BMW PCD experience is free and covers your hotel stay and dinning. There's no vehicle discount for PCD delivery unlike European delivery.

Since you're not driving back home any additional delivery costs will be between you and the dealer.

Got it. I'll most likely go down for the whole experience. Does BMW's Pull Ahead Program have a set time to come out your lease early ( 3 or 6 months ) to start the next order?

Not aware of BMW Pull Ahead Programs available for any current BMW models. Last one I'm aware of was in late 2015 to 2016 where I did a 3mo. pull ahead on my 2014 340i M Sport GT for a custom order 2017 X5.

September programs should be rolling out later this week since the current one ends Tuesday, Sep 3.

Congrats on your order. I'm also about to place an order soon for PCD. I'm a newbie - for the bmw incentive availability, it's based on when you finalize the paperwork (abt a wk before pickup), not when you place the order, correct? Thanks

Yes, it is based on when you buy the car, i.e. pay for it.
