I couldn’t find any evidence of self closing doors. It isn’t mentioned under standard features and it isn’t in any of the packages or standalone optionsDoes your spec include soft/self closing doors? I could not see it specified anywhere when building mine. I am ready with same build as yours with Phytonic blue and no B&W sound. My sales guy believes production wont start until early next year. To be confirmed I suppose.
I heard from my dealer that self closing doors come with the Luxury PackageI couldn’t find any evidence of self closing doors. It isn’t mentioned under standard features and it isn’t in any of the packages or standalone options
The other missing feature I can’t find is side window shades in the rear.
I have that crystal on the drive selector handle of my 14 month old X5 45e, I think the issue of blinding by the light is a bit overblown in the various reviews. I am in Southern California with a fair bit of direct sunlight.It is in the luxury package it says so on the website but it’s hard to find. I couldn’t bring myself to blinding crystal knobs so no soft close for me
I don’t have much to offer except my dealer contacted me Friday to select a build and tell him so he can get the order in as early as possible. Live ordering went live 1/11/201. The car I ordered had a mandatory dynamic handling package, on all builds between Nov and Feb. i Didn’t put my original on line pre order in until 10/1/2021.Three questions re US orders:
(1) Does my pre-order guarantee an early production slot or does the actual order determine the production slot? I placed a pre-order June 2 and had been waiting for my dealer to contact me to place the actual order. No word from the dealer. I just learned that it has been possible to place firm orders for a few weeks now. Am I still guaranteed an early production slot based on my pre-order? I just contacted my dealer and they are clueless (“it’s all new to us”).
(2) Is it possible to switch dealers without losing your production slot status based on your pre-order? I specified a dealer as part of my pre-order. What if I place my order with a different dealer using my pre-order number? Will I keep my early production slot?
(3) Is it possible to switch dealers after placing an order? I may move out of state after placing the order. Would I be able to transfer the order to a different dealer in a different state?
Makes sense that order is based on when deposit was made. communications from all car companies are poor Nowadays. Shortages and all but would think when it come to top tier items like this car it would be better.I had to contact my dealer when I saw the configurator online. I go tomorrow to pick options. He told me that order of production is based on when you submitted your deposit order. I did mine June 1 so I should be at the top of the list. Should know more tomorrow. It’s really sad that BMW is doing such a poor job communicating to us.
I was about to order when I was told the same thing I said that Aventurin Red Metallic was on the website to order he said the dealership could not order and maybe later in the year it may open upMy dealer emailed me back and said Aventurine Red is not available and he cannot submit the order unless I change the color. Is that right?
