This is true. However, I only had the car for about 36 hours. Most of the trip was pre-Munich.

I've done ED twice so far and each time drove the car to the nearest drop off point. Having driven throughout Europe in rentals, I know what kind of opportunities there are to get damaged (although it's only happened twice--once small, once large.) e.g., driving to Rothenburg o.d.t. last July, the lanes over a bridge-under-repair were so narrow that I was extremely thankful that I had rented a car rather than take my new 335i on the trip. I didn't hit anything, and nothing hit me, but it was really close (like centimeters) from a truck in the lane next to me. Also, parking in many places can be treacherous to say the least, and since many European cars are narrower than in the U.S., the spaces are narrower, too. Also, since you don't always find the large open lots like you would encounter in a shopping center, for example, you can't always use the appropriate ding avoidance techniques when parking (i.e., up hill, away from other cars, to the right at the end of a row, etc.) In any event, I want my new car to be new and ding-free when it comes home. Add to this the fact that my wife is even more adamant about having a clean car delivered to my dealership, the choice for me is clear. I would love to go all out on the autobahn in my Bimmer, but that ain't gonna happen. I'll abuse someone else's car.

That's interesting. I hadn't considered actually damaging my car during the trip. So many people have driven thousands of miles on their trips without any problems. I did just read one ED report about parking in a lot in Venice and how tight it was. That would have concerned me. I was a little concerned about valet parking at the hotel as well but I checked the mileage before and after as well as looking for damage. Everything seemed okay.

3. Buckingham Soldier
4. Westminster Abbey
5. Interesting building with the London Eye in background
6. View from the Thames
7. Tower of London with a museum ship in foreground
8. Tower of London
9. Tower bedroom
10. Model of Tower of London (from some time in the past)

Most people debadge it either because they like the looks better or main reason: To avoid envious reaction, especially if the have the top of the line motor, I guess. I personally would never debadge my car. Never had any problems, even when visiting my clients.

BTW: Munich does have the greatest market share of BMW of all cities in the world: 19% of all cars registered in Munich are BMW.

Thanks for the info. The last time I was in Munich it was about 10 years ago and I didn't notice these things. I suppose with nearly 20% of the cars in Munich being bimmers the people really know them well so they may have been admiring the fact that I had a 335 as supposed to a 328. It was probably just my imagination though.

Nice 7 series in the pic. I would love to get my hands on a 7 series and convince my wife that it is our new "family car" as opposed to some CUV/SUV contraption that is supposed to be family friendly.

Wow, you just picked your car up a few months ago and already plotting more!

I'm glad I could contribute to spending even more $$ on new Bimmers.

Jaufenpass was a great road but did not see anything as it was night. This was the evening we were headed to Stelvio Pass. Festers that read my report know what I am referring too.

Not sure how I missed your report from mid April. Well worth the belated read. Did not see anyone answer your question about the bowl of warm water with the lemon in it. I believe that was a finger bowl. a substitute for the hot towels they give you in Asia or when you fly first class. The lemon acts as a cleansing agent - a well known trick for getting rid of the fishy smell from your hands when involved in food preparation.

Thanks! I thought I would never get that question answered.

Now, if only someone knew why it reads "Australia" at the top of the gate leading to Buckingham I would be at peace with my trip (getting my car in my hands would help too).

Wonderful write-up. Might sound odd to say this, but wow, do we ever see the world through the same lenses!

Not odd at all. Maybe it's a scientific approach to the world??

BTW, read your ED report even though it's over a year old it was great.
My question: did your license plate say "cortisol" or was I seeing things?

Update: PCD

There are already plenty of threads about PCD, I think it is pretty standard. I must say, our instructor Don was awesome. I'll just share a few pictures.

1. B7 in front of delivery center, love that car
2&3. Couple of pics from the Zentrum (no pics allowed during the plant tour)
4. The hot lap cometh
5. Don on the hot lap
6. Notice how the M5 is facing the wrong direction. Fully controlled 360 with DTC off on a slick surface with enough forward momentum to keep traveling forward after the 360. NICE!

Pics of my car on delivery. Had about 188 miles on pickup 4 days ago. Has over 1000 now!

The car is (obviously) fully stock. We'll see how long that lasts. Got great recs from stressdoc.

Thanks. I love the car. Driving it like I stole it. I know I COULD get about 24-25mpg but I AM getting about 15-17. I just can't help it, the right foot gets excited!
