The Colts should play the Seahawks just in case there's a guilty decision with the footballs. If so, that game would be the Super Bowl result. That would be better than the next best remedy,...

See if Login Out in Munich can tell you which ship the car is on. You might be able to track the progress more closely. Or you can guess which ship it's on and try to track that ship.

Ideas for Italy?

I've been to Italy only once and that was to meet with a colleague in Milan.

It's possible that I might go again for vacation. What are your recommendations for a few days in Italy.

The cheapest are in the U.S. at Harbor Freight Tools. I bought one and drove dangerously in German (ha, ha) by not having enough vests for everyone.

If you have that low miles, consider buying the car then keeping it until it has at least 100k miles. If you like the car, you will continue to like it for a few more years.

Years ago, I did a European Delivery in the first week of May. The temperature was in the mid 50's. I cannot vouch for the Alps but in the cities it should be fine.

The owner's manual specifies 1,200 miles but I do it for 2.000 miles. Before, there used to be a 1,000 mile oil change so the 1,200 mi. figure seems sensible.

I drive a F30 320i and an E83 X3. The X3 is taller. The 320i definitely handles better as far as a quick turn, cloverleaf exit on a highway, and emergency lane change. True, it's lower but not like...
