Are you planning to see the BMW Museum? If not, I'd recommend taking some time to see it also. Definitely worth seeing.

My car is on it too. Mine is a VO 1M. I dropped it off in Munich Nov 27. I'm going to do a PCD. I sure hope I can do my PCD before Christmas!

Unfortunately, but if you want to be done by noon, you'll have to skip the factory tour. The English-speaking tours start at 11:30 and last about two hours. Totally worth it though, if you can...

May be best. I timed myself out of curiosity, but honestly paid no attention to it during the lap. Timing to try to beat a time will likely get you in trouble. I had nothing to compare it to, so...

Good idea. I drove it last year for the first time, did 2 laps. My plan was just to crawl around the track. A bit into the first lap, I really started getting the feeling for my car (135i) and...

I haven't tried it, but I hear goo-gone works well from other forum members. I'll try it when I remove my europlate from my car when I sell it in January.

Not a bad idea, but the people who most need it (people who aren't familiar with the 'Ring) wouldn't get much use of it. How do you know where the accident is? If they announce an accident going...

Quick question, how did you arrange the M Studio Tour? I'm picking up a 1M on Oct 25 and would love to do that also.

Personally, I think you could easily fill some time just strolling around the city center. Lots of great architecture, churches, and shops. You might see if the BWM museum across the street from...

That's too bad, because the factory tour is pretty neat. This just means you need to do a Performance Center Delivery and see the factory tour out there!

Just a couple of thoughts here...

You have 9 days between pickup and drop-off. 4-5 countries is highly unrealistic, and would make for a very poor vacation, IMO. Particularly if you want...

You definitely would need to return to Munich to return your tires. I'd be very careful about how you make this decision though. If you get in an accident and you didn't have adequate tires for the...

I dropped off my car in Nice last year, and got it back at my dealer in 7 weeks, which is about the normal time for Texas. No way it always adds two weeks. However, it may add some time, depending...

That'll probably work. I did an ED for my 135i, and have the Euro Plate mounted to my front bumper with double-stick tape. That means I have to use the tow-hook mount for my legal plate. Not a big...
