Oct 12 ED

Quick tip, make sure to take a better camera than your iPhone. The pics look great on the phone, but the grains come out when you print them out. At least we have the BMW official photo to remember. ...

Wrong tires

Had the reverse problem with my delivery. Ordered all seasons and got summers. Not a good idea in Boston. Thankfully the dealer resolved the issue after re delivery.

Itinerary review

For some reason the cleanest Burger King I ever saw is right down the street from the Dachau concentration camp. Harley Davidson themed also.

Lufthansa air deal

Don't bother with this deal. Even when it was in play they only discounted the "fare" not the taxes which is 50% of the ticket. It sounds great as a marketing ploy, but economically your better off...

Does anyone which car has the top limiter across all of BMW? I would imagine it would be the M6?

Language Skills for the FUTURE?

French is the most widely spoken language in the world. Plus for traveling the French tend to be the least bilingual. In Germany everyone under 30 speaks English.

ED itinerary

Agreed to all. Actually Paris is way easier on the metro than by car. CDG is a good 45 minute train ride to Paris. The TT drop off is convenient to flying out since they have a shuttle can that drops...

If you read the fine print the 2 for 1 was just the fare portion of the ticket. 50%-70% of most euro tickets are taxes which don't get discounted. Just book on your own, you'll find a better deal

Don't stress too much about the music as I learned to appreciate listening to what European stations have to offer. There is a Armed Services radio signal in most places in Germany.

Also watch your statement for the 2nd payment. They billed me for mine and when I called, BMW leasing never heard of the 2nd free payment. My CA called and resolved, but make sure to watch out for.

A couple of us dropped off in Paris earlier in October and it took 2 weeks to get on the boat. Paris tends to be the slowest, but 4 weeks is a bit much.
