Cool Redelivered!

34 days later...

Car was right up front (see picture) waiting for me.

We installed the umbrella and snap-in adapter and did the BMW Assist paperwork and off I went.

Both license plates present and accounted for. Vignette not present. (Glad I bought 2) No damage. Two of us checked the car thoroughly.

Great driving it back.

Congrat!

Jonathan,

Why did you choose "DiFeo"? Please try next time "DiGuapo". A little spanish joke...

Contratulations for super fast redelivery. M3andM3

Must be the angle. The X is a drop higher than the 330 but this is exagerated!

Hey congrats.. Picture looks good. Hope there was no scratch/dent.

Earlier you received the BMW paper saying BMW assist is going to expire. Did you take any action. I haven't. So now I am worrying whether it will actually expire and dealer will not be able to do anything.

I was only basing it on the fenderwell gap. You have the ZSP, right?

Sport package on the X is different as it retains of course the X-drive suspension. Hence there is a drop more gap.

Thanks. Car was perfect.

Re Assist, don´t worry it won´t expire. In fact, mine will expire in exactly one year from now.

Thanks.

A vignette is what you buy, translated it means sticker, for roads requiring a toll, both in Austria and CH.

Forgot to mention, it gained 8 km, was up to 2434 km, from 2426 when I left it. And with those 8 km, it crossed the Atlantic!

The umbrella is really the combination umbrella/umbrella holder that attaches to the tunnel on the passenger side. Really neat item and very handy.

The snap-in adapter is the adapter that supports charging and the external aerial for a mobile phone. It does not connect the phone to the car for operational purposes as that is handled by Bluetooth.
