Who says I've slept since taking delivery of the Barvarian Princess #1? She just crossed 42k miles...

Those who know me here best would say I'm perhaps the least patient man alive. But at least I'm currently preoccupied with figuring out what I'm going to do during ED after I get the car, that I only occasionally wonder what my status code is.

Can you get the 1200m service done in Germany and how long would you lose the car? Planning on ED for the F80.

Based on what I've read, you can, but you'd lose your car for half a day and you'd need to pay for service and get reimbursed state-side. More hassle than it's worth IMHO unless you're going to go way way over the 1200 miles while doing ED.

1200 mi service is done when your car hits the port and before it hits the dealer (or PCD) so by the time you take redelivery, you're pretty much good for a while.

Waiting for the next status code is like watching paint dry. Esp. when you're a week 15 production.
