You sign the final papers in the USA a week or two before you go to Munich. The lease starts that day you sign the paperwork in America.

Bratislava? No offense if you're Slovak, but there's nothing to see in that city. Much nicer spots elsewhere in Slovakia. And so am in complete agreement with Trinitony-avoid big cities on an ED...

I would probably be "disappointed". I get pissed about too many other things these days to let this bother me. How long does it take these knuckleheads to change a tire that you need a loaner?

I think kids that age would love to head for the Salzburg/Berchtesgaden region. In Berchtesgaden they'd probably enjoy the salt mine tour. You are issued miner's outfits for everyone with all sizes...

You're from Philly - Put a Flyers license plate on the front.

Seriously? You saved almost $6000 and you're worried about two microscopic holes? I doubt they'll effect your resale value.

Did they change plants for the X1?

Maybe my local BMW saleswoman is uninformed but she just told me that the 2015 X1 is not available for European Delivery because it's made in South Carolina now? Please say it ain't so.
