Believe it or not, it's about 30 degrees warmer in Germany than it is back home in NE Penssylvania. Most of the time our temps were in the high 30's and they even went up to 50 one afternoon. A...

I wish I could do ED every February. The best time to go: no crowds, except on weekends in the mountains and everything is just gorgeous with snow on top. The natives are much friendlier then too.

The Garmin units are vastly superior to the BMW factory installed systems. Half the time I was in the old East Germany the BMW GPS didn't even show a road while the Garmin never missed a thing.

Do any of these looks familiar?

Just dropped the new wheels off at Loginout.
Not too crowded but some nice looking vehicles were all lined up.

Our GPS had us turn one street too early and we ended-up in a pay lot. We got out quick enough that we didn't have to pay. Loginout is just past the Audi shop on the right side.

You only need them on the Autobahn (toll roads). They aren't needed on secondary roads. And the supposed "secondary" routes are quite fast moving most of the time. We are amazed to see a land with...

I forgot to add that we also got a free heavy duty ice scraper in the deal. BMW must have heard me whining about the chintzy "Welcome" package because they are making up for it in free Welt swag.
