Great Report


Nice job on the report. I've been pretty absent from BFest the last couple of months because i'm just buried in work and simply haven't had time, but...

Three years ago I did ED for my 2008 550i. You, Skywalkerbeth, and many other very familiar names in this thread were also doing ED that year, so I feel a little fraternal bond with you all, even though I haven't spent much time corresponding with each of you.

My wife and I are heading back to Munich in two weeks, and we pick up her 535xi on Friday, July 15th. Spending two sure-to-be-fun weeks between Munich, Amsterdam, and the Rhine river, with lots of fun and interesting stops in between.

For anyone wondering how well an '08 E60 is holding up after 3 years and out of warranty - I've put 52,000 miles on this baby and she hasn't had any issues whatsoever. I can't even believe that such a complex piece of machinery and circuitry could be so much fun and so trouble free. It's holding up so well and has been so much fun to have that I went ahead and bought it off of lease, and got a SCREAMING deal from by BFest CA (Jim Mannheimer, Salem, OR) on what was essentially a 2:1 transaction. My wife is now a BMW convert, too, and HAD to have her own, and HAD to get it in Munich.
