I picked mine 335i on July 1st. Drove it for 28 days. And finally, this week I'm picking it up at the dealership.

European Delivery

Hi All:

I'm looking forward to European Delivery of my new 3 series (probably 335i) the middle of next year.

Starting in Munich, we'll be going to Strasbourg, Mulhouse (for the Bugatti museum), Loire Valley, Dordogne River Valley, French Riviera, Switzerland and back to Munich. I can't wait.

I'd like to borrow a BMW DVD for my navagation system. Anyone out there with a DVD they'd be willing to lend?


Thank you,

Cary

All 09 3 Series have hard-drive based navigation systems, which means, among other things, no more Nav DVD.

Does the HD have world maps or US only?

I'm surprised how few people end up signing that book. Given that we've got festers / day picking up on some days.

I forgot on pickup day, too, but made a trip back for the Museum, book signing, and a little dinner overlooking the Olympic Park. Was a nice way to end the trip.

Good point. Thanks for calling this to everyone's attention. Maybe we need to remind people to observe the 12-hour rule AND sign the book!

It was right there at the reception desk of the Premium Lounge when I went in so I signed up straight away. Hard to miss.

Great idea, btw

Also signed the Big Book in the food & beverage area of the Premium Lounge. Festers should do this also.

Remarkable experience!

I signed the book on 07/14/09. It was right in the counter where you check in to the Premium Lounge.

And every time I have walked into the reception area of the lounge (since bringing the book on Delivery Day 1), several people make it a point to say "Herr Spira, of course you will see that we keep your Bimmerfest book right here..."

BTW, Das Buch is in need of a replacement. When I signed on in early September, myself and others were cramming to fit the last page. Herr Spira?

It had plenty of pages a few months ago (I was told) - but it has been two years as of yesterday (yesterday was the opening day at the Welt two years ago).

I'll work on Volume II.

Cruise Bone got me thinking so I went back to my photos and realized I signed page 98 with more room (to which I also noticed I signed the wrong date. I was there on 9/2 and not 9/20 ). The confusion was that I signed both the Bimmerfest book and the LARGE guest book in the Premium Lounge. It is the large book on which I did sign on the last page. Sorry for the mix up. Herr Spira you have time for a replacement.
