it is not luck, but planning and preparation
i have to admit that driving on a-bahn @ 100-140 miles per hour is one of biggest thrills
for me
next time around plan accordingly and do ED, i am sure you will enjoy it

Picked up my car yesterday. Holy crap there's a lot to learn. I'm getting the hang of it though. Just my luck though. There was a HUGE hail storm in NY/LI on Mon and car windshields were getting smashed and cars were getting dented all over the place. There was nowhere to pull in for shelter as the storm came up so fast. End result, I got a few tiny dings in the hood and one on the roof. Not a real big deal and something you wouldn't see unless someone directed your attention to them, but a bit of a bummer nonetheless. I wonder how much a body shop would charge to get rid of those things? Probably won't do anything about them but it's annoying. Oh well.

Beautiful car in space gray and the cinnamon interior is exactly what I hoped it would be. Just gorgeous inside and out.

Hi PsychDoc
You already got your car since it arrived at NY/NJ on 27th?? Did you do European Delivery?? If not, it was customs cleared electronically enroute. Seems like ED cars go through more thorough Customs and USDA inspection. Hopefully mine will be released to VDC and on to my dealer soon...

Have fun, and enjoy the lovely ride.

Yeah it was a lot faster than I thought. Got into port on the 28th, at the dealership the next day and I picked it up three days later.

Sorry to hear about the hail. I'm sure the dents can be removed without excessive cost to you. How long did it take at the dealership? Was it a pleasant experience? Pictures yet?
