I've done the "same day as landing delivery" twice before, and will be this time as well. I'm relatively young, so I don't think it's a problem. This time I'll be taking my parents however. I plan on going back to the hotel after delivery for a brief nap around 4pm.

This was no problem for the staff at BMW Welt, though. They simply moved my vehicle pick up time till later in the afternoon. That also meant that I got many additional glimpses of my car before the vehicle delivery appointment since it was already on its rotating platform for the earlier delivery time.
My wife doesn't like the picture we took during delivery, but I will convince her that its okay to share it with you guys.
We land at 9:30am, check-in around 11:30, delivery around 1:30, followed by the winter tire install. I scheduled my factory tour for the following day (seen it before, but my parents should enjoy it). That leaves the gap after check-in for the museum and lunch.
Congrats again, and post pics as soon as possible!
