Rolf just dropped me off last Friday at the Munich Airport. He came in with me to help navigate the checkin lines; and that day they were very long because some convention had just ended. He pointed me to the self-checkin machines, got the tickets, checked the luggage and was on my way in ~15 minutes to Paß control, customs and security.

non-EU, well you get that...

Red and green
Depends on whether you have goods to declare or not (green means go )

Anyone get any odd emails from Rolf lately? He sent me one email saying "Hi Steven, I can't pick you up..." Well, this is alarming but my name isn't Steven. He had previously confirmed my email. I emailed him back and I got a blank email from him. Hopefully I hear back from him soon as I leave on the 9th.

Yeah, I figure I'll give him a day or so to get back to me. I can't call International from work, plus it's not a good hour right now in Munich.

Huh, sounds like it may have been intended for me. I'll email him and see what's up.

Gosh, neck and sleeve size is always hard to guess. He's taller than me but I would guess his neck size is slightly smaller (I am a 16 in U.S sizes) and I wear a 33 sleeve and I would guess he is at least a 34.

But I am guessing. Only his tailor knows for sure.

I'm really talking medium, large, or XL (or XXL like me). Anyone know Rolf's approximate size?

Thanks in advance,
Neely

Smile Rolf the best...

Rolf was waiting to pick us up today at 8:00 am at MUC and if you can keep up with the constant flow of info from him at that hour (it's like 2:am to us, remember) you will learn alot of details about what to see, what not to miss, and how to get around Munich. In addition, he is a genuinely great guy. Rolf took us to our old town Hotel Torbrau, came inside and briefed us with the city map, and was a total pleasure to deal with in every way. He will take us to our ED on Wendsday am, and I could not be happier with my initial BMW experience with Rolf - the only way to go if you do ED. Rolf is a great introduction to Munich and BMW, and I highly recommend contacting him. Cheers, Neely

If you have the opportunity to meet Rolf and use his services, you will be very pleased. I was able to meet Rolf and his buddy Peter when we arrived in Munich and they really do go out of their way to make you feel special. They are very classy people.

Rolf even followed up with me to make sure everything went ago after my drop off.

Smile Thank You Rolf for introducing us to BMW and Munich!

At the delivery center, we finally have to say goodby to our new friend Rolf. His guidance and outstanding introduction to Munich are a true asset to both BMW and Bimmerfest. Good luck Rolf, - we cannot wait until our next bimmer delivery. Neely and Mary

Rolf will be "working" when we arrive, but has made arrangements for Peter to meet us. Anyone been "hosted' by Peter?

Mein Auto: BMW X3 and BMW 328i conv.
Just got back this week from taking delivery of my new 3281 convertible. Used Rolf to pick up from Hotel Excelsior to EDP, took me from Harms back to hotel, and then picked me up the next morning to go to the airport. Probably was one highlight of complete trip. He is very reasonable, needs the money ( just took Cuban wife and has 5 yr. old son) and is probably in early 60's. You will love being with him Stays booked well ahead, so plan early.

Yes. It took a couple days for me to hear back. (Apparently he couldn't meet us due to a work scheduling, but was checking to see if his associate Peter was available before reporting back.)

He also takes a lot of vacations. He travels like 3~4 times a year.
