Omg, omg, omg! I ordered my iX the very first day US orders opened then watched it sit stuck in Quality Check for 3 weeks while others received their cars. Then the app was down for two days. What a fun surprise to open it today and see that my car has left the building and is headed for the port! I realize it could be weeks waiting to get a slot on a ship and then more weeks to ship it and get it to Colorado, but anyway… it’s on the way and I am starting to get excited 😊

If you really want to obsess about your delivery, you can get the name of the ship your iX is on from BMW genius, and then track it across the atlantic. Not sure if it's possible to track across the US, as i am on the east coast and did not need to.

Oh yes, I absolutely plan to obsess over every mile. My Marine Tracker app is ready and waiting for my ship number to be forwarded by my dealer who promised to send me the tracking details, which I will likely already have from the genius 🤣. Think I could get them to install an AirTag for the last leg of the journey?

Not rubbing it in, but what’s taking so long? I got mine 2 weeks ago in Kansas

Congrats on your new iX Pbenji!! Is it amazing? Do you love it? Worth the wait??
Also, excellent point about the dragged out delivery. I have no idea why it’s taking so long and came very close to cancelling several times. It sat in “Quality Control” for 3 weeks and no one could give me an explanation. I started making noise that there is seems to be a quality issue but crickets from my dealer and the genius line. Anyway, seems to be on the move now. I assume there was some supply chain issue on my particular package? 🤷‍♀️

It’s pretty awesome. Absolutely worth the wait. The whole production at the factory took about a week. Then it sat at the port for 2 weeks. The boat took about a month. Then it sat at the port again for 2 weeks once it got to the US. It was frustrating at times

Pbenji, I’m so glad you love it. What is your color and package? Also curious how easy it is to find EV charging stations around Kansas area. Thanks so much for the heads-up on expecting a slow pace from port to me. I will try to cool my jets. I tell myself the anticipation is part of the thrill of this beautiful car.

I got the sophisto gray. Did not get the sport version. Got the basic wheels and added pretty much everything except for the luxury package (I believe that’s the one, the one with the crystal knobs). Honestly, there are more chargers than I expected. I guess I never knew they were there until I used the electrify America app to find them.

Very nice! The Sophisto Grey is such a gorgeous color. Maybe it’s the crystal knobs that hung my car up? 😂 . Also good to hear there are many chargers around there. Maybe a x-country trip is doable after all. I wondered if you’d have to stay on big highways the whole time to pull it off our could still meander around on small town back roads without getting stranded. Anyway, enjoy your beautiful new iX!
