I was in Garmisch 2 weeks ago and Sixt gave me a 320d wagon (M Sport). I was tempted to go to the spot and take a pic with the rental car (since I've never done an ED) but I didn't have enough time.

Yes, you must clear passport control before making your connecting flight. You may or may not need to clear security though.

1.5 hours is more than enough time.

Interesting you don't feel the difference with DDC. I feel the difference, but in sport it wasn't as harsh as my old '08 335i coupe. Granted the tires in that car were much worse.

It's possible it was disabled because of the hacking issue posted by ADAC. Since your car didn't have the latest software they locked it out of their servers.

That's a lot of time in Fussen. I think it's only worth one day (that's including the castles). I'd probably spend an extra day in Munich or go to Rothenburg (yeah, I know it's not exactly close)...

That's strange. Auto hold on my car does not engage unless I specifically turn it on.

Do you have active cruise control? Could it be related to that?

I can confirm that T-Mobile is throttled but it's still using LTE (4G) so it's slightly faster than traditional 2G (EDGE).

The Silvercar A4 I believe you cannot buy as configured from an Audi dealership. For example I think the A4 comes standard with dual zone climate control and the Silvercar A4 is single zone.

I curbed the wheels on my car probably 2 months after I got it. My detail guy took care of it.
