Great story, and a really unique experience. I agree, once you take delivery once on an ED, it's difficult to imagine taking delivery any other way. Pretty impressive fuel economy too.

Which makes sense. It's why they used to call it central locking and put the button on the center console. One lock to rule them all. Comfort access, which really should be standard, allows for...

I hear you. I'm totally ruined now after doing a PCD and then an ED. The concept of taking delivery at the dealer is foreign to me.

One other thing to consider is that most of Germany is not air conditioned. I went in July while they were in a heat wave and it was quite brutal. Flights were very expensive in July, and there was...

I'd keep the LED lights. I love them, but they do not provide any additional illumination over the standard HID lights. They do give you LED turn signals, which was the main reason I chose them.

The Four Points is very close. But don't let closeness stop you. The U-Bahn station is right behind the Welt. Plenty of hotels are near U-Bahn stations making it easy to go that route. I stayed...

I went with option 1 with the Rial rims that bmw325 linked to in the 18" size, which is one inch smaller than the 19" rims on the upgraded "line" equipped cars. On the 550, the 18" will fit, and I...

I wouldn't give up the multi-contour seats. It's a must for this car. I had the DHP in my last F10, and the 704 in my current F10. In normal mode, the ride was better on the DHP equipped car,...

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.
