Minus 12 Hour Compliance
So it's the middle of the night here in Munich... 12 hrs to delivery and cant seem to sleep, might be time zone changes, but more likely excitement ;)

Waiting for your update.......

ajm0824 11-06-2012 10:28 AM

Finally, the wait is over and I can now get some sleep... in my car!

I guess you were excited. You must've gotten to the Welt before they opened. It's still dark in the lounge!

Nice car. Where are you headed?

AggieKnight 11-06-2012 11:05 AM

Those are really great pictures. Thank you for sharing.

Get some sleep. =)

Post Return Compliance (More Pics)
Back stateside, and still acclimating to non-autobahn speeds (so oppressive).

Still offloading photos from the camera (have tons), but pieced together a few to post.

BTW: Thanks to this board for all the help throughout. First BMW / First ED... Start (planning/purchase) to finish (return) was only 6 weeks. Would not have been as memorable without the help!

Thanks! That depends on your definition of a photographer.... purchased my first non-cellphone camera for the trip. Made an effort to capture some nice shots and mostly happy with the result.

That morning in the black forest.... those photos barely capture what was like in person, but agree, a pretty special one. Thanks again!

The mountain top photos take your breath away. The photos with your car and the filtered light through the trees look like a BMW advertisement. Nice Job. Thanks for sharing!

Holy Cow
Wow.... wow.... holy crap wow... love the car, the pics, all of it, good stuff brother, V/r, Tim.

P.S.- What kind of camera did you get (my wife is looking at the Nikon J1)?

ajm0824 11-21-2012 09:09 PM

Thanks! I've gotten the "advertisement" comment on that one particular photo about 5 times already.... maybe I should send it to them. You guys let me know if you see it on any billboards near you :D

Well worth the wait to see those gorgeous pictures. Looks like you took the trip of a lifetime. You hit all my favorite places - Trier is especially awesome in my book. Hope you sample the local wines. They are too sweet for most, but my family loves them almost as much as Bavarian beers.

Beautiful Shots!
Really nice pictures. Glad you had fun!:thumbup:

ajm0824 12-11-2012 07:09 PM

Thanks all... very memorable!
