I have only done two EDs but they did take longer than the other four BMWs I ordered.

I had a huge unnecessary delay with my last ED. Customs cleared my car (apparently they have just a few days...

Nice! I'll keep my eye out for your M5 when I'm driving around town. Congrats on the car btw. That would be a great ED car!

Fallout in 5 days?

I clayed my 2011 Alpine White 335i a few days ago, then immediately covered it with two coats of wax. It took me and my nephew all day and it didn't have a single dot of fallout left on it anywhere...

Thanks guys! Yes, they want $100 to ship one $8 sticker. I think that qualifies as robbery, hence my request here. :thumbup:

Here are photos of an identical sticker to the one I'm looking for, except it's in white instead of gray/'silver' like I want. My apologies for the poor photo quality.

ED: Nurburgring photos

I picked up a 2011 335i a few days ago at the Welt. It has been improved upon in many areas over the '08 (and the '09 for that matter). The steering feel is improved and more precise, which I hadn't...

It's ironic to me that those quaint old buildings are occupied by chain stores that I can visit at any of my local malls. It seems like no matter where you go in the US, it's all the...

That's what I would have liked to have replaced my 335i (coupe) with, but I'm probably looking at another 335i (to be on the safe side with this economy). Very nice car, Dave; I didn't realize you...

Well, the configurator is up for the 2010 E92 and everything looks identical to MY2009. And nothing has appeared at the Frankfurt show as far as I can tell. Am I missing something here?
