Some of you might recognize the person it the photo (it is not "roots"); the car is roots' E39 he ordered from us for his virginal ED experience...





Hint: think Bimmerfest ED Moderator/Legend.
Whoa Jon! I can't believe either it's been 10 yrs since I lost my ED virginity

I told Bee not to touch my car at that time

Drop off

This morning I dropped off my car at LogInOut. The process was very quick... only 15 mins and I was out of there. I counted 5 cars there this morning on the lot and Katrine said the truck should be there tomorrow.

The WAIT has begun...

It was so much fun and the scenery was very beautiful and yes there were a lot of photo opps. My loop ended up like this: Welt - A96 - B17 - Steingaden & Wieskirche - Neuschwanstein photo spot - Fussen - Reutte - Garmisch Partenkirchen - A95 back to Munich.

When I was at Neuschwanstein, I looked at my map and if I were to follow Deutsche Alpenstrasse, I'd have to backtrack to Steingaden and turn east to Bad Bayersoien. But I decided to go through Reutte instead. My original plan was to follow the route east of Garmisch Partenkirchen up to Benediktbauern, but when I got to GP, it was already late and I decided to just get on A95.

I recorded a lot of video, but I haven't had a chance to edit them. I'll try to do it this weekend.

How do we start tracking the car - let me know if you get any email that its been loaded on the truck. I just put the VIN on the shipment tracking website and it says no record found. I guess its too early.

There's an extensive amount of information in the wiki:

http://www.bimmerfest.com/wiki/index...ng_Re-Delivery

It's still too early to get the shipment tracking... I guess once our cars arrive at the port then they will start booking the ship etc.

I'm going to email LogInOut on Monday and see if they have the ship info.

With the old DCS system it was easy for me to see vessel name. Let's see what I can find out nowadays..

Here are the photos from my pick up day last Friday. I rented a car one-way and drove down to Santa Barbara (got a really good deal from Alamo for $51 for one way rental!) Jon picked us up from the airport (where I dropped off my rental car) in a brand new 750i It was so nice to see him again... last time I met Jon was back in December of 2002 when I was picking up my first ED car.

It was a short drive back to the dealership. As I entered the showroom, there was my car... looking as shiny and clean as the day I picked it up back in Munich! I asked Jon to leave both the rear and front euro plates on the car







And here's the man himself



Finally time to drive back home...



With that... my 3rd ED is now complete.
