I would check with BMW to find out if this omission is intended to exclude Isle of Mann or if they intended to include it under some legal definition or another.

I'm hoping for assessments of whether that promotional material is accurate or merely the same as every other shops claim to be the best.

Put more cynically, is BMW simply branding average work?

BMW Certified Collision Centers - Meaning?

I'm curious about what being a BMW Certified Collision center is. Can one expect higher quality repairs? Is it YMMV for each center?

I wouldn't be asking if I hadn't been in an accident, and I'm...

They come with ED, but not PCD (I believe). People who do both ED and PCD have them because of ED - neither PCD nor the dealer should take them away.

Yeah, was going to say what percentage of cars have summer tires on them, even in the South? Most people use what comes with them (A/S) and never change.

It's been a number of years, but Lucerne is lovely. While better than Zurich, there's still enough of a city there to spend a day (or part of one) if you have to for schedule purposes.

I don't see a problem with dropping day of flight, assuming getting to drop off from your previous night stay isn't a problem.

+1. The fact that you got % off of ED MSRP is good - sometimes you're paying US MSRP (or more!) on a new M even for ED.

Not sure it's been released yet . . . only thing I've seen is M4 coupe +$8300. I suspect many of the options will have a similar price.

On the one hand, 3 weeks is a lot of time. On the other, you're kind of all over the map. Of course, one purpose of ED is to drive a lot, so I can't really quarrel with that.
