Sometimes delivery dates at BMW Welt can be over 2 months out depending on the season, so that is where 60 days might not be long enough. I agree, your scenario shouldn't generally present a problem- although some credit unions/banks freak out if they find out you will be driving the car in Europe. And definitely, European Delivery rewards those who are patient! In my opinion, its one of the top reasons to own a new BMW!
