I’m a new member although I’ve been following this site for a few months. I find the site a great source of information. I ordered an IX last month and was told it would take approx one year to arrive. Prior to ordering the IX, I was waiting to receive an Audi e-tron. However, I cancelled it upon hearing about the IX, which blew me away, as it seems to be streets ahead of the game. I was also concerned about the e-tron’s reliability. Anyway, today I happened to be looking on-line at BMW dealerships new inventory and low and behold I came across a mineral white IX50 with the same spec and price as the one I ordered. After a couple of phone calls, I found out the customer cancelled his order, so I put down my $1k deposit and it arrives on 6 April..I’m ecstatic and feel very very fortunate! What I’m trying to say is if you feel you cannot wait for your IX, there are IX50’s available….
