Perfect with the autumnal tree.

Great shots! It looks like the scaffolding was taken down on the side facing the roads. It was all covered up in July when we were there.

Have fun in Germany!

Thanks guys! The car handled the winter weather perfectly and gave me no troubles on the wet snowy icy mountain roads nor on the wet autobahn at high speed.

I'm coming from a two seater sports car, and I wanted something that still felt sporty. Believe it or not, this X1 doesn't even feel like I compromised. I love it. Can't wait to get it stateside.

Great shot at a fantastic location! Glad to see the scaffolding is down.

Who's the first person to put a Bimmerfest sticker on that bench?

some of these are great shots, I am going to see the castle but I dunno if I will go to that spot. I'm not really going to Europe to take pictures of my car. I'm going to Europe to see and take pictures of Europe.

The one pic I go hope to take is a shot in the Alps with snowy mountaintops in the background. But for that to happen, I need open mountain passes.

Wow! Brave man! That's something the committee will need to evaluate and consider if they deem it necessary to warn you of the consequences. Taking a photo of you car in that spot when visiting the castles and then posting it on here is, I believe, compulsory and a strict requirement for all Bimmerfest members. You ignore it at your peril - you could have your car impounded or it could delay the shipping for several weeks.

Further viewpoints on this risky and unprecedented suggestion (of not stopping at the Bimmerfest official photos-stop) are invited as it is far too strange an idea for me alone to comment on.......
