Yeah, I wouldn't panic. In fact, I wouldn't think much more about this unless you want to schedule the 1200m service for your ED pickup.

It would be the same as it is now - you pick up and tender the to the handler to do the drop off. Instead of them dropping it off immediately, they would park it for 5 days (or whatever).

In other words, any added costs for allowing ED purchasers to use the Nürburgring could easily be addressed by a specific insurance exclusion rather than an across-the-board price increase.

All three series, or just those bound for NA market? Even with 3er production in South Africa one could still get ED on a 3 series. And given demand in Europe production there is likely to continue.

Just wanted to note when I did my last ED 12 years ago I ran into Stevarino in the (old) delivery center. I think he's done a half-dozen EDs since then and I'm waiting for my next one!
