I've also sent Rolf 2 emails in the last month about my arrival next week. I know he was on vacation, but I'm still disappointed that he couldn't send a short reply after he returned.

Any Rolf replacements

It seems many of us are on our own....does anyone have a driver/service that they recommend for airport pick-up?

Thumbs up I got an e-mail back from him on the 12th

Rolf contacted me on the 12th. My first 2 attempts I did not get a response though but it was due to a bad e-mail address listed in one of the post.

The correct contact e-mail address is:

rolf.raffelsieper@web.de

He is a great guy and extremely helpful.

It got really cold today and I can confirm that my weather forecast via BMW Online in my 535d´s iDrive said snow on Sunday. Fortunately, I will be in Vienna that day.

He picked me up last Friday for ED. Very nice chap.

Please note that due to some issues with payment of money in front of the Welt - I think having to do with cab drivers or a desired appearance that Rolf is just droping us off - I paid Rolf about a hundred yards before the Welt, and then Rolf drove us in front of the Welt entrance. He then joined us upstairs to answer any questions. Like everyone else, I recommend him.

Question New to This Forum

Question about Rolf and ED...Do I have to schedule Airport/hotel pick up with him, or does BMW set that stuff up when I go over there?

If you had taken the time to read even part of the thread, you would see that people are e-mailing Rolf to schedule an appointment.

Four weeks is probably fine but Rolf´s schedule gets filled quickly so as soon as you know when you are arriving, you should e-mail him.

This is a public forum which Rolf also reads.

A gift from home might be more appropriate than a tip.

Hey Jonathan,

What would be considered a good gift from home??? Maybe a bottle of Texas hot sauce?? I think I could get that after I go through security at one of the stores in the gate areas in our airport (so the TSA sanctioned thieves would not confiscate it)...or would someone like Rolf like something else that would not be perceived as cheesy????

Cheers,

When Rolf gave us a ride to the Delivery Center last Summer, I brought him a bottle of wine from North Carolina. Yes, North Carolina, don't you West Coasters laugh. Coming from the West Coast, some NC wines are not bad actually, especially the Viogniers. Anyway, he was very appreciative and was very surprised by the gift. I think any token of your appreciation for his service would be nice.
