All my 5 pages with former comments have disappeared!

I offer them low price transfers to the BMW-ED-Center, or to the hotel, into the city, the BMW-subsidiary, the parts shop, the boutique, the shopping mall and back to Harms or to the Airport! Sometimes even a free factory tours within my group, because I am also a Tour Guide at BMW!

There does exist only one very old report "pix335i" in the forum with an wrong address!

Awaiting with great interest your reply, I remain

I'm dragging the whole family along on our ED in May. Has anybody used Rolf with more than just two people (we're 4). Also does anybody (Jspira?) know the German and Austrian laws regarding children and carseats. Thanks in advance,

Erik

Hi and welcome to Bimmerfest.

Car seats are mandatory.

Rolf bought a new 3er Touring so he could accomodate more Bimmerfest people. If that´s not big enough, he can borrow a 7er from BMW. Make sure you tell him how many people so he can advise accordingly. Email him as early as possible.

Thanks for the welcome and the info. Here in the Colorado my oldest is big enough not to need a booster, I just wanted to make sure I didn't need one by law during our ED. Perhaps I can borrow one from our friends in Planegg. In any case it will be the four of us hopefully Rolf can fit two adults and two kids........I'm probably crazy for bringing the rugrats, but they ask each time we visit Europe, this time I couldn't very well say no. Sound of Music tour here we come!

Hi ERIK,

Kids need a children seat in Europ until their age of 12 and 5 persons in my 3-serie station waggon should not be a problem with normal luggage.

Rolf, thanks for the car seat info, that's exactly what I needed to know. I imagine we won't have too much luggage, as it will all have to fit in the back of the new 335i coupe. I'll send you an email with our particulars to see if you're available. Thanks again.

Regards,
Erik

Ja, if it fits in the Coupé, the Touring will be easy.

Hi folks, we have Rolf scheduled to pick us up on Sunday January 14th from the airport to our hotel at Sheraton Westpark. Still trying to decide on the hotel to the ED center the next day.

Looking forward to meeting him and asking a lot of quesions/advice!

Let me add to the positive experience I had on my ED trip with Rolf. Our plane was an hour early getting in at 7AM due to some speedy winds. Despite this time change, Rolf was waiting at the appointed spot and efficiently took care of us. En route to the hotel, he inquired if we were going on a plant tour and I said they were booked up online. He then noted that he was giving one in English that evening and we could join that tour.

We jumped on that offer and at the hotel he marked our map to help us see Munich, navigate the subway and get to the BMW plant.

Leter he gave us an excellent 2 hour tour that really got us in the BMW ED midset.

Overall, like so many before, get 2 things before ED--a Rolf connection and Euro GPS

I just heard from Rolf. He'll pick us up at MUC and drive us to the ED Center. He gave us very clear instructions as to exactly where he will meet us.

Just got confirmation from Rolf that he will be picking us up on 3/22 and dropping us off at the airport on 3/27. Great communication thus far. Explained the meeting location and his reasonable rates. Good experience thus far. Looking forward to meeting him, oh and getting the car!

Best of luck!

+1. I had Rolf pick me up at 6:45 in the morning on Jan 22. I was in the lobby of the hotel a little early and there he was, waiting for me!. I also arranged for him to pick me up at HARMs, and he was right on time again. Well worth the money. He is a great guy.

We have him booked on 4/17 around 11 to take us to our hotel and then to the delivery center the next day. I didn't want to risk not getting there on time on the 17th.
