I got one today too and was just about to post asking about it. Mine was for 24 Euro. Since many of us are receiving it at the same time, it seems like some big paperwork mixup.

They extended my lease 9 days after end at no charge as I was still waiting for redelivery. It worked out perfectly, as I took redelivery on the last day of the extension.

My car had no damage and spent almost three weeks at the VDC. I agree, that was the worst part. All of the other parts I had some visibility in to, but is kind of goes in limbo once it arrives.

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,...

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 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.
