I am finding out that an X1 making it to port in the US - or at least West Coast - doesn't mean it is quickly on its way to your dealership. An X1 already allocated to my local dealer that I had initially planned to purchase (before deciding to order an X1) arrived last Wednesday 9/19 at Port Hueneme. I am pretty sure of that, having used the excellent tracking info available. But that X1 is apparently still sitting there as of today, one week later. The dealership gently asked me just a day ago if I would still be interested in purchasing that car, but still couldn't tell me when it would be at the dealership.
Maybe that's typical? Or maybe that X1 is actually lost? I'll check to see if it ever shows up at the local dealer...
