60 hour (?) compliance

We have barely had time to breathe (in a good way) since we landed Friday morning. I may do a full write up once get back since it's a great way to memorialize the trip for your own reference, but in the interim here are a few shots.

Our itinerary is:
Munich
Berchtesgaden
Konstanz
Lucerne
Freiburg
Weisbaden
Quedlinburg
Munich

First few days were one city a day to maximize driving; now we're about to slow down a little and spend two days each in Freiburg and Quedlinburg to do some of the outdoor day trips near each city.

Compared to the E92 it's replacing I like the F82 a lot. I was torn forever, and agonized over the decision because I was generally opposed to turbos and dropping the V8, but this car is fantastic. Certainly different, but not in a bad way, and it absolutely has its own charms. I think we're going to hit the break in service in about 2-3 days, which will let me get a much better idea of what it's really like.

We're having a blast. This is our second ED and this time we paid a lot more attention to the roads we picked.

Maybe one day we will make it out of Germany for more than 1-2 days of an ED trip, but we love the country and people so much it's hard to.

It's also hard to beat the autobahn when you've just picked up a new BMW. I normally get tired of vacations near the end but I wish this could last about another two months.

Gorgeous car, what color is that?
I see you're heading to Lucerne, what was the best way to Lucerne from Munich? We leave in 6 weeks!
