Yeah, I love Hwy 11. It has a few long straight sections that you can, well, err....pass cars that are going below the speed limit.

Lots of people take delivery the day of arrival. If you're not jet lagged, it'll work for you. If your flight is delayed, etc, call the Welt. It's happened before and they'll work with you.

I think our only hope is that BMW will continue to build, say, 3 series in Germany and allow us to do ED out of an abundance of good will.
