Which is the cost I should be looking for since I am "picking up the car" in Europe but they will deliver it here to the dealer in the U.S. http://s1.bimmerfest.com/forums/images/smilies/iono.gif

Thanks again.

You'll use the European Delivery price (usually, depending on the model of course, you should be able to add $500-1000 on top of the "European Invoice" and that's the price of the car...)

Others more experienced with this can chime in as well V/r, Tim

Might I suggest to be kind and helpfull to one another?
And can I suggest to change the ED Wicki name in a more attention grabbing one?
Something like:
How my girlfriend got pregnant while doing ED.

Obviously, this topic will not be in the thread.

What is up on the next episode of "The View"? Claudio, welcome to Bimmerfest first of all, where the guys speak are often rough but the wealth of information make it worth it. You look at the European Delivery. A typical deal would be to take the Euro delivery invoice and add $1,000 with all options at cost, but it depends on the market, the area, the car you are getting (you have not said yet what are you getting). This is suggested on the worksheet at the bottom, it is all there, and it is indeed all in the search function. We are glad to help you, but for your own benefit, all the questions you ask are very easy to answer either on the wiki, with the search function, or even in the bmwconfig.com spreadsheet.

Now I am sorry for even thinking like this, but what is the definition of troll again?

You're a bit harsh...perhaps the poster didn't know what to do, as in how to use the "Search" feature or Wiki.

Lack of awareness is not necessarily laziness, at least in my opinion, and that's all there is to it. You may disagree, which is fine.

But let's try to help. If you don't wish to, that's fine, but you don't have to caution about flaming and then proceed to do just that.

We live in the era of Google. Who does anything online without doing a search for it. Think of how many times a week that one typically uses Google each week. Think of how often one searches any web site when looking for something. The Search Button is prominently displayed at the top of every page on this web site. Of course it takes time and effort for someone to do a search. Some look at it as "why should I spend my time time doing my own homework when others will literally do all the work for me?"

When I was a newbie*, I opted to do my research first then ask later. While this is obviously the best suggestion for any newcomer, it is a little misdirected to just say "do a search."

The Google search at the top actually searches all of bimmerfest, which includes threads and also blog posts. The results are shown much like how you would see results on Google.com, sorted by relevance based on keyword(s) match and not displayed in the forum or threaded format that we are all used to. Threads are also shown multiple times if it has multiple pages. This makes it harder to find answers in a focused approach. For those truly enthusiastic about ED, this should not stop them, I'm just saying it may not be the best way to go about it for some newbies.

I think a better approach to search, which I found more helpful during my ED planning phase, is to go to the main European Delivery forum page, click on "Search this forum" dropdown on the forum header, and then enter your keywords or opt for a more advanced search. The results you get are threads (not google search links within bimmerfest) containing all the keywords you entered and in chronological order. Plus, you get to preview the post when you mouse over the thread. For those not accustomed to forum sites, they may not find this neat feature and may get daunted by the more generic "search" function up top.

*Does completion of an ED automatically classify you as a "non-newbie"? I wish there was a count for number of threads read/clicked into. By that category I would be a seasoned veteran of these forums.

It takes the same time to answer nicely than whining and bitching about newbies and how they should find the info. If you think they are making you WORK by answering questions, then don't answer so that you DON'T HAVE TO WORK. Obviously, the concept of Work is far different for me and most of the helpful people in this forum.

As much as I try to be polite, I see comments like Phartings and geez...It is hard not to react, but....oh well!! I can use my ignore list I guess.

Really? Very adult and that certainly contributes so much.

I still think that you'll get better results without getting into a pissing match with people who have apparently offended you and whining and insulting other posters. The best "ignore list" is to just ignore the people who's advice you don't like and only respond to those people who advice that you do like. Do you want your ED experience to be a positive one or a negative one? The way that you've responded so far makes me inclined not to help you at all.
