Welcome to the X7 forum, waiting is what we do best! But seriously, many of us have put deposits down 5 months ago in October during the first minutes of the preorder coming available and our cars are just coming out of production and yet to hit our dealers. Patience is a must

My X7 has been stuck in quality since finishing production February 8th.They are probably replacing wrinkly seats.

Once youíve been communicated a production number by the dealer, call the Genius hotline to confirm the week of your build. The vehicle will arrive at the dealer between 1 and 3 weeks after the week of your build

Don't know, but that's a great build there, adu21mt . Pretty much the exact build I would want to do, including exterior color, black leather, trim, and packages. Really would like to see your rig when you get it, hopefully sooner rather than later!

If you ordered the M package there is a delay because they are supposedly overloaded.

Apparently so many people have ordered it that the parts are in short supply

I donít think that is the reason.I ordered an M Sport that finished production on February 8th and has been stuck in quality ever since.In Canada we are not able to track are BMWís while they are in production,so i have been tracking another US X7,without the M Sport package on the US BMW My Garage website because it also finished production the same day as my X7.I just wanted to see when it ships, to get an idea when my X7 will ship,without bugging my dealer about shipping info.As you can see,it is also still stuck in quality and it doesnít have the M Sport package.

Really?! I jumped on this M Arctic grey 4.0i in production yesterday and was told 2 weeks. Did you call and see what the hold up can be?
I wonder if the 8 cylinder / 5.0i's are delayed and the 6's are flying through? Is yours a 5.0i too?

Mine finished production on Feb 21, and dealer is saying they're expecting it March 15. I'm also in Ontario, Canada.

Yes,my X7 is a 50i M Sport.The only other major option that is the same between my X7 and the US X7 is that they both have the Ivory White/Night Blue Full Merino Blue Interior.

My dealer in Toronto just said he thinks they are holding them at the plant for the release.But that doesnít make sense because X7ís are shipping daily right now from the plant.

More then likely some part is missing or defective and rather than hold up production, the car is put to the side and fixed manually. Seems to happen all the time with new cars.

For example the new 2020 gle had several hundred 450s held at the factory when a defect was found with the rear roof spoiler. That delayed a lot of cars for a few weeks.

I would prefer things this way rather then having issues fixed at vpc or worse at a dealer service center.
