Are those 2 round trip tickets really free? no tax?

I like XC60 a lot and Volvo OSD plan seems very impressive.

When we did paperwork at Welt, we were told

to put the document especially the green one together with the Passport.
At HARMS, the staff member did ask us to show all the papers.
Good luck.

Agree - at least that's what I heard

We did not tip for service in our ED trip back in 2008. I heard that's acceptable practice in Europe. Sometimes, the service charge was included in the bill (In Venice, 15%) and I paid.
At Rome, to...

How long does it take from Nice to Barcelona?

Great trip and great photos!
I'm also thinking about to drive to Barcelona in future ED.

Happy holidays!

It's sad indeed.

To me, one exciting and important factor of ED is to pick up my own car and drive in Europe as an American. A rental car is a very different thing. It has to be a big disappointment when OP heard...

You have time, dont rush.

If your flight is next day afternoon, you can drop the car in the morning of 12/19/09 (I guess this is your departure time from Munich, not 12/09/09) and then go directly to the airport.
So on...

My car was built in the last week of July for 9/10 ED

last year (2008). The CA said it is the pretty common case due to the plant shut down in August.

You can get the ED date you want if you order it early

You then should get production number and approved ED pick-up date.
Don't worry about the financial rate, dealer will inform you when to get related paper done so you can lock the rate effectively....
