The rep knew that us ED people are a special breed and we want to keep those things. They were sitting in the trunk.

Go for it. I love it. The pictures don't do it justice. I did have the opportunity to see Mocha before hand, so I knew what I was getting. I don't care for the other brownish colors like Amaro,...

I'm still waiting for mine, it s been 7 weeks so far. Dropped off on 7/21. It does seem like the VDC is very busy right now.

Many times the area between the leather and the plastic around the seat is a source of creaking noises. They usually have felt kits that can solve that problem.

I used points for the Westin, one block from the Arrabellapark U-Bahn station, and a one train transfer to get to the Welt. The U-Bahn station is right outside of the Welt and is a very quick walk.

I stayed at the Westin. It is a nice enough hotel, although a little outside of the city center, so it is quieter and more suburban. Still only a block from the U-Bahn, and a simple transfer will...

I would roll those taxes in to the payment, no need to pay for them upfront. Overall it seems to be a relatively fair deal. However, I'd still contact a board sponsor. We have two in NJ. I used...

If you place an order, they do keep the lease price firm. I've done it that way twice already. And if the program is better, you can take it. For my lease, an extra $1,000 cash was applied to the...

I was mistaken as to the timing of the Un4gettable event, but no matter. The deal looks solid, and the upgrade to the 535 is nice. I see it has lighting too, which is a really cool feature to have.

I'm hoping for the end of August too. Since I'm in NJ, barring any customs delays or damage, that should be possible. Since my lease officially ends on 8/31, that would work perfectly.

I dropped off mine in Frankfurt on 7/21 and it's on the Don Juan. On the ocean right now, heading to Halifax and then NY. You're are correct that the wait for redelivery is the hardest part.

It looks like they just recently made it available in the US. I had to download the APK previously. Just went to the Play Store and to my surprise found it!
