Minich, day 1 and 2.

Munich- Zurich-Lucern
I will skip the Flight to London and from London to Munich.

Day 1
We arrived in Minich at 8:30 pm and Rolf was already waiting for us. He couldn’t believe that a family of four traveled with only a couple carry on baggage and brought his friend Peter to help. The girls went with Peter in his 3 convertible and had blast on autobahn.
Day 2
Next morning Peter picked us up and drove us to the Delivery center. They were surprisingly not busy at all. There was only one other family there, picking up their 750. We just start our breakfast when the sales person let us know they were ready for us. After signing all the papers we went to go see our new car.
It was very exciting…. Well, I didn’t cry.
Then we followed Peter to the BMW store to get vest and highway passes and then went to the BMW museum. We left our car there and went to kill some time downtown before having to be at the bmw center for the tour.
After the tour, we drove our bmw back to the hotel, with the help of the navigation system (thanks Bee).

Day 3

Munich - Zurich - Lucerne
Only one thing - do not drive your car straight to HARMS. Autoban is a MUST.
To tired right now, it's a 12:30 am here. More to come.

Great job nivki89! Nice pics. Delivery Center photos are nicely exposed. Many (including myself) have had a problem of those shots turning out too dark, way under exposed. Car looks beautiful. Enjoy your stay!

Nice Pics. First time I've seen one with a Mini in the Delivery Center. And is that a red Polezei vehicle with the light bar on top?

Cheers

There were two convertible Minis there when we picked up two years ago...they were company cars and being used for commercial/advertising shots. The red car is probably a fire department vehicle.

Few More photos from delivery center and border crossing. Sorry guys, thing with Nivki _Jr doesn't work well.

Hotels:
1. Munich - Hollyday Inn North - very nice and clean room. Don't go with your 11 yr. old daughter in a swimming pool. . Separate story- will back to this later
2. Lucerne - HOTEL SPATZ - very bad
3. Milan - Tulip Inn Delle Nazioni - very nice and clean. Hard to find. Parking is OK.
4. Nice - Comfort Hotel Nice Vieux Port - very nice . Parking is a challenge - very narrow.
