Even if production is completed, they can't release/deliver them before the hold is removed. Its not unusual, but it may be a couple of weeks before the vehicles are released. Two sources inside BMW seem to indicate your Ohio dealer may not have the correct info...

I'ld be happy if this WASN'T the case, but apparently it is...

Hello,

Just checked on the BMW site and now my production number works and I can track my M. Status says in production, which is a day or two behind the phone status. Lets see when it is released to my dealer.

Thats great news! Mine is supposed to be built next week.

I'm sure you'll let us know when it is finally shipped for delivery That will be a good indication that the EPA/CARB hold has been lifted...

I'm not sure what value the "ability to track the build" is if you can't actually track the build in real time. It takes less than a week to build these and if yours is completed BEFORE it actually becomes trackable - Whats the point?

Have you checked your build options on the BMW site? My build options do not show the 5DK side view camera option, but my dealer says it was ordered that way. I call BMW in Ohio, and they can't confirm 5DK is on my build or any details about the build. Can you confirm options other than by the dealer who says "yes it was ordered that way"?
Thanks,
Luca

Ouch!

I don't see any selection to confirm my build options. Maybe its because my order is still in "Order Documented" status... Where do you see the option to check that info?

Once your production build number is accepted, you get a track tab show up on the left. When you click the "track my BMW" tab, you should get your status above and below that should be your X6M selected options. Maybe you have to wait until your M is already finished before it shows up.

I did confirm with my dealer that the Options listed on the internal BMW production site match my order options. (Thanks for the heads up!) The dealer has access to more timely info using their system than we do with the online status. (IMHO - Its pretty useless if the "track your BMW" web option only becomes effective AFTER the build is completed...)

In any case, the 5DK TopView camera option ordered on my build appears to be in place. So it doesn't look like some sort of option change/delete on the 2013's. The Official BMW Configurator went live last night and that option also shows up on their build page. Its also interesting to note that the 21" wheel options are now back. (We could not find that on the dealer options list when I ordered my car back in Feb - I'm checking if I can get that updated at this point).

Anyway, I would be taking a critical look at your dealer. Aren't they also the ones who told you there was no EPA/CARB hold on our vehicles (just the M3/M5)? Apparently (according to two sources inside BMW), all new vehicles have an EPA/CARB hold each and every model year. It sounds like they may not be accurately transmitting info - in either direction. Do you have paperwork showing the camera was in your original order?

What are your options? Can they rework the car or would it require a new build? What does BMW say? Is your dealer standing behind you?

More Specifically: If your dealer is telling you they can't confirm the options in the build, then I don't think they are being honest with you. (Or maybe they just don't want to provide the info).

When I asked my dealer to confirm the build options (in response to your query), they simply went into the BMW production system and printed out the build list and emailed it back to me.

HOLD THE PHONE!

My online status just went to "In Production" and I can see my options. I'm seeing the same thing online as you: Everything is listed EXCEPT the sideview camera option. Maybe we should take comfort in numbers and the online status is just not displaying that option. I'll ask my dealer shake the tree and find out why that particular option is NOT showing up...

Hello,

Yes my dealer did do a check, and they said it was on the production build sheet, so they can only confirm it was ordered with 5DK. Not sure how to check that they in fact built it that way. But if you see the same thing on the BMW site, most likely its a problem with the site.

Hello,

The production phone update now says my M has been released for transport. My dealer said I may have it by the 28th.
I also contacted BMW regarding the problem of not showing the side view camera option on the tracking page. Should be fixed.
Cheers,

I JUST got a message from my dealer and they assure me that the Sideview Camera will be on the car (despite what it says on the web build). I'm also going to confirm that the EPA/CARB hold is over now that your car is in transport status (Yay!). Mine is just finishing production... (You Bastard! ;-)

There has been an EPA/CARB hold on the new X6M vehicle year. Since Lucabratsi's car is now in transport, it appears that the hold has just been lifted.

"Transport Port of Entry" - your talking about an X6/X5 right (this forum) - built in South Carolina (Port of Entry?)? We are specifically tracking our X6M's - so if you talking about a different 2013 model, there still could be an EPA/CARB hold in place on your particular vehicle. As I've been told, each model goes through this independently each and every year...

The website says my vehicle says it is still at level 1, since Tuesday. Can someone share the 800 number to check the status?

Thanks for the info. BMW says it scheduled to be finished on the 24th, the dealer is quite optimistic that it will be delivered to MI before Friday. I think he's crazy but we'll see, hope he's right.
Mine wil be Alpine white, Black merino leather with piano black trim. Cold weather package, full LED, rear climate, 5th seat, comfort access, Driver assistance, premium sound.
