After my July 18 pickup. Not the official spot. It was such a nice day that it was very crowded in that area.

Pretty quick redelivery. I'm hoping mine will go just about as fast when I drop it off on July 21, allowing me to end my current lease right one time.

Thanks. They should rename Space Gray to Welt Gray, since the color is very similar to the tone of the Welt.

Were you on the factory tour today with the two children? I was in a dark blue shirt by myself.

I think my 2011 was built in July. It's been relatively reliable. A couple of little issues that the dealer has fixed. Tires and rims have and continue to be the biggest problem with the F10, at...

FWIW, the 2015 F10 now has a leather dash in the Executive Package on the 550 at least, maybe in the other trims as well.

Wow, totally jealous! Too bad she isn't driving the BMW Ring Taxi anymore. I'll be at the Ring next week, but I'll be driving my new 550.

I've complained about them many times here. Not worth the price IMO. I find them very noisy and I sometimes do feel a vibration, although it is minimal. The only time when I've felt them to be...

I would have loved the 6 GC. But that extra lease payment, even with the "blowout" deals they were doing was still more expensive than a 5. I'd be comparing my 550 to a 640 GC, and the GC would...

I'm already anticipating being tired. That's one of the reasons that I built in some time in Munich before the delivery to recoup. I have poor sleeping habits as it is.

See what Greg Poland has to say before giving up hope. When I glanced at the numbers, the deal seemed decent. But with 700 miles on the clock, it immediately made the deal much worse.

I think at one time in the past the two shared a facility, but that was a long time ago. BMW and MB have both grown too much to share space. I've been to the VDC, and it's all BMW Group cars.

Since production for 2014 has pretty much ended, it's not surprising. You're also trying to find a car that is rare on top of rare. The GT, and the V8 version.

In your information packet you will find an e-mail address for the Welt. Send them an e-mail with your production number, and you'll be able to do the factory tour as well. I'm doing the same thing.
