Anyone else had a build slot confirmed, my xdrive50 Msport is being built week 46 and arriving in the UK week 49

Hopefully that will not slip

Msport
No! Although my dealer is terrible and only ever communicates when repeatedly chased so will chase now.

BMW seem to be managing supply chain well considering the shortages so fingers crossed.

Welcome! Great to see yet another member from Norway. I believe that's where the highest EV ownership rate is in the world currently. Will the iX be your first EV?
70% of new cars here in Norway are electric these days.. No, i bought my first car in 2015.. That was a BMW i3! :D And after that i have owned a Tesla Model S P100D a BMW i3s and a Tesla Model 3 (that i drive today). Now i have ordered a IX and an i4 m50 to replace the model 3 - i do not really like Tesla after all the visits to the workshop and the terrible customerservice.

So i have only owned electric cars - i have driven fossil burners multiple times, but i do not like them. Electric is amazing, and i will never own a fossil car.

Has anyone had their build slots pushed back? I placed my order Mid Sept (later than a lot), i was told delivery would be Mid-Late Jan.

I've today heard that delivery will be at least May 2022, with allocations not being done until the end of the year. Has anyone else heard anything similar?

Still no news on my build slot. Although at Munich airport at the moment and they have one in red and looks pretty good…may need to change my colour choice. It is locked unfortunately.

Hi all, I got my slot confirmed last week and put in my order for Storm Bay with Amido leather interior and darn near every bell and whistle, except for the super fancy (and super expensive) sound system, as I pretty much listen to audiobooks in my car and am not what you would call an audiophile. The dealer put in for a February 2022 build date, but he didn't know if that would come to pass.

I have (pre)ordered my wifes' in july 2021 in Belgium. IX 50 Mspot with Indivual Storm Bay and 22" wheels and full option (Bower & Wilkins included). At time or signing the PO, my sales told me that massage seat was not available for passenger so got i little discount. To be sure he put June 22 as delivery date. He informed me at the time of ordering that production of 50's was staring later than the 40's and it was not easy to predict delivery date. What I hear now is that production start on time and i have called my dealership where they informed me a slot is "requested" beginning of january...so hopefully the car is manufactured in january and that delivery will be february. Any experiences from other forum members?

Hey,
I ordered my iX40 beginning of October.
At that time the iX50 was almost sold out for 2022.
This week, the dealer told me that production of my ix40 will probably be last week of January.
Delivery approx. 2 weeks later.
I tested the vehicle 2 weeks ago.
It didn't disappoint me!
Good luck with your wife one's!
Hans

hi Hans, that is great to hear.
I am quite impressed with the short delivery time. 2 weeks after production!!
My dealer is not informing me proactively (a pitty) so I have to chase him. Only thing I know is that prodution slot was requested for january 22 (when I pre ordered beginning of july...). I was quite quick with my pre order... I hear stories of small dealers only having 10 slots a year for the IX! (I ordered in quite a large one)... Happy driving, I am sure you will enjoy indeed!

Keep us informed if you receive your wife's beauty (iX)!
