I did everything completely wrong. I'm way out of compliance in posting this (my delivery was two weeks ago!). I didn't go to the official picture spot (I'd already been to Füssen!). I made the...

My previous CA switched careers, so it's on to Plan B: Find out if there's a Bimmerfest Board Sponsor nearby. One of the local dealerships (Tischer BMW) is on the list-- but possibly only their...

BMW considers Money Factors to be proprietary information and the board administrators would prefer BMW stays happy, so they don't post 'em here.
