I managed to nail lufthansa non-stops to MUC (economy going & business class returning) using United mileage plus points. However, using FF points to get the flights you want requires obsessively &...

We see statements like "the plant is closed in August" on these boards pretty regularly. However, keep in mind that the closure is often something like 11-14 days rather than the whole month. A lot...

True, true. As you get past about 72 hours, forecasts aren't very reliable. My phone has AccuWeather, so I was looking at that. Even since this morning, some of it has changed. And I'm sure it'll...

Yep, just a week away for both of us. I'm kinda bummed that they're forecasting rain next week, as it may put a damper on some of the outdoor things I've been planning. Luckily Munich has a lot of...

Regarding the i3/i8, the issue is probably just that the U.S.-spec cars come with U.S.-spec charging equipment. If they allowed ED, they'd have to provide adapter cables, etc. Easier/cheaper to...

Ditto. It's totally possible. You can drive from the Welt to the airport in 25 minutes and be done with it. But, come on, live a little!

My understanding that the delivery people will, upon request, give you free passes for the Welt parking garage. It's not city center, but it's supposed to be a pretty secure facility.

The anti-theft alarm (302) is now standard. It was previously a MSRP $400 option.

I'm 100% sure that I every 2-series window sticker that I've seen (for both 228 & m235) has said: "Engine: Germany" & "Transmission: Germany."
