Compliance!

Took delivery of my X1 today! Quick Notes:

- 'Das Buch' was prominently displayed at the check in desk
- Some 95 cars were being delivered today, and roughly 120 tomorrow = near capacity... The Christmas gift rush is in effect!
- Tiny photo because I'm on my phone and limited data plan...
- Free goodies included key chain and engraving, and a 10 voucher for the gift shop (picked up safety vests, etc.)
- The staff offered to move my delivery time six hours earlier as I was there for tours anyway, and they wanted to ensure I had a 'flexible afternoon' instead of waiting around until the evening for my original delivery time...
- Access to a locker, the premium lounge, parking garage, etc. were all easy as can be - even for the day after delivery when I arrived for the factory tour.
- English tours for the museum and factory were also easy to arrange - in both cases I was able to get my preferred time slot without issue.

Congrats! X1 looks good. What are the travel plans?

Is this your first ED? Not many Canadians do it.

Cool

@ Kanuck: 1st ED, hope to never buy a new car in any other way again

Travel update - have just returned to Munich after 6 days touring in a big circle through Salzburg (Austria) and Karlovy Vary (Czech Republic). A few more days here including car dropoff and sadly that will be it...

Fantastic time though; xDrive is unstoppable and car has been wonderful on the autobahn, even with the break-in restrictions...

Amen, brother.

If you happen to get a chance to upload more pictures, I'd appreciate it. Besides yours (that blue color looks great in your one pic), I've only ever seen the car in white, black and bronco. Would love to see more.

Glad to hear you are happy with the car and your trip is going well.
