Prior to the opening of the BMW Welt, when deliveries took place in Freimann, there was a series of informal notebooks that served as the Bimmerfest Guest Book. I decided that, with the start of deliveries at the Welt on 23 October 2011, I would bring a nice, hardbound book with me to start the tradition anew at the Welt.

Of course, since I was the first customer to take delivery of a new car at the Welt, I was also the first person to sign the book. Beewang was the second person to sign the book.

By and large, the Welt's staff were new to European Delivery (the only person who moved over from Freimann, AFAIK, was Bernhard Hausmaninger) so I explained to them what Bimmerfest was etc. and they immediately placed my book in a place of honor at the point of where people stop upon entering the area adjacent to the Premium Lounge.

Upon arriving at the Premium Lounge, Bimmerfest members should simply sign das Buch in whatever manner they deem appropriate. If for some reason das Buch is not immediately visible, I'm sure that one of the friendly staff members will be happy to locate it.

I know that the book is getting full so I will be dispatching the Second Volume of das Buch with Christian Stampfer (European Editor of The Diesel Driver magazine) when he flies back to Munich in early November (he will be here in the U.S. for two weeks and we have multiple driving trips planned here).
Freude am Fahren.
