I got mine today. There was nothing in it unique to my pick up. I was thinking it would confirm the date and tell me the precise pick up time.

How do you find out what time to show up?

Not meaning to hijack the thread but do all cars get the 1200 mile maintenance or just M cars. If it isn't done in Europe do they do it at the VPC?

Assuming it does...
