Talking ED Photos: Bechego's journey to 2006 330xi

So, here is the first of a few posting that you will see on this same thread. I plan to stick to the 12-hour rule. Here is the T-28 hour posting.

Flying out of Newark and, while we (wife and I) wait, we were able (because of airline "status") to get into the Lufthansa "Senator Lounge" , where they had tons of bread products, ham, cheeses, and unlimited drinks...of all kinds...free .

Flights leaves at 5:20PM and arrives in Frankfurt at about 6AM on the 19th...then taking a short flight to Munich that arrives close to 10AM. We plan to get to the Delivery Center at noon or so.

If you are intersted, subscribe to this thread.

Thanks.

Good start - have a safe flight. I was happy I had eaten something in the lounge last time I flew Lufthansa as our flight was delayed 2 hours (i.e. we were sitting on the Rollbahn for 2 hours) and of course there was no food service on the ground, just pre departure champagne and juice.

Here they are finally

Bimmerfesters:

They say the road to heck is paved with good intentions. I think this is correct. I fully intended to post within the 12 hours after delivery, but here I am, late. I hope my pictures will help the board be lenient.

1) This subliminal BMW message at the Munich airport made the wait seem even longer
2) We decided to take the train over (17 EURO for both of us) and it took about 1:15 hrs. This is the BMW stop. The Delivery center is about three blocks away. Not too bad really.
3) Herr Hausmaninger is a pretty cool dude. He knows what we US buyers want and like to hear. He gave us the royal treatment. He. even took pictures and video of my wife and me with the car
4) Now, I named this last picture "the first glimpse of my second love"...my wife was right here, next to the computer as I labelled the picture...I would not have been able to write what I really think...ouch, she just hit me.

The new car is a beauty. Congratulations! I looked for that huge Bimmer face at the airport upon arrival and departure. Never did get to see it. Well, maybe on the next ED trip I will have the luck. Best wishes as you continue your trip!

More pictures

Here are a few more...

1) I forgot to put this one in earlier, the entrance to the next chapter of my life
2) And of course I made sure to sign the Bimmerfest Book! By the way, I am not sure who would want to know this, but, Herr Hausmaninger asked what Bimmerfest would want to do with the previous Bimmerfest Sign-in book. He had just replaced the previous one with a new one because it was full. Any thoughts?
3) I like the "Angel Eyes" on this car. They are very white. I thought they might be a little yellow, but they do not seem to be.
4) The famous tight spot you have to drive through to face the world with your new Bimmer.
5) I almost forgot to take the odomoter picture. But here it is.

Good question. Sounds like they don't want it there. Maybe some of the veterans will have some ideas. Jspira?

Third installment

Here are a few more fotos.

1) Ear to ear smile with our new 330xi
2) I wanted to capture as much detail as possible of these first few hours, so I asked the guard at the exit gate if he minded having his picture taken. He did not seem too thrilled about it
3) For dinner in Munich we went to an overpriced little place called "Lowenbrau Zum Brunnwart". The food was great
4) German drinks bring us closer (I had a "Fanta" called Mirinda). The waitresses at this little place are dressed in interesting attire

I will speak to Herrn Roller when I am there in 10 days and I'm sure he will want to find a (small) place of honor for it at BMW Welt (within the delivery facility of course).

Actually, Herr Hausmaninger said that he would love to do something special with it. He even joked and said it maybe should make it into the BMW Museum at some point, since it has meant a lot to the BMW European Delivery Program. He just mentioned it since technically it is the property of Bimmerfest, so he wanted to give the board the choice.

J, awesome suggestion. It is like putting a recording setting ball or uniform at the hall of fame. It sounds very exciting.

See if you can get them to send it to the CEO of BMW and get his autograph on it before its put on display.

But he cannot sign it - unless he picks up a car for export in Freimann.

Also, news headline as of this morning (was listening to Bayern 4), new CEO Reithofer replaces Panke in Sept.

I find myself listening more to Antenne Bayern, Bayern 3, Bayern 4, Ö3 and Ö1 than anything else. I even have Internet radio piped into the main stereo system.

Excellent Idea. I wish I had found this Board before my ED so I could be included.

Cheers

When did you get your car? I could always write a message from you into the new book when I get there on the 31st.

Jspira,
We arrive on the 31st also, but elected to pick up the car on the 1st. Sorry to miss you. Also, I learned after I scheduled everything that all BMW tours are closed the first two weeks of August. Gives me a reason to try this again.

We are now in Berlin. We will go into the city later this AM and I will have more photos to post. Yesterday we made the drive from Munich to Berlin on the A9. Road was very good, although we did find those 2-meter construction lanes some people were commenting on. We made it alright though. I kept the RPMs under 4500 but the speed went to 125MPH. I will not go beyond that until the 1250 miles are done...in about three days . This is because from Berlin we are going to Salzburg, which will be about 400+ miles. I already have 400mi on it. So maybe the second or third day in Slazburg I will be able to reach the computer-limited 130MPH. I am looking forward to getting there a bit faster though!

More pictures in about two days.

Thanks for looking.

Hey..... wait a minute... I think I know you. We both work for the same little company out in Malvern, right? But how come you wear your ID badge even on vacation (pic at train station)? You must really miss work (unless you're meeting clients and doing ED at the same time).

Haha... hope you're having a great time in Europe

I was wondering about the badge also!

I am finally back

Sorry I have not had a chance to write. We spent a whole week in a little town called Radstadt in Austria and, of course, they did not have internet. I wanted to use an internet cafe, but it just did not work.

I am going to do a small posting today...

1) We spent two nights in Berlin and did one of the bus tours. Later, I wanted to get a picture with the car near a significant site and I decided to take this first one near the Kaiser-Wilheln Gedachtniskirche. I think this is one of my favorites shots so far

2) Earlier that day in Berlin we were walking around and I took this picture with a lot of stuff in the background. I would name them all, but my resource (my wife) is sleeping and can't help me out, so I am out of luck

3) After Berlin we worked our way down to the Salzburg area for a week at a timeshare week (this information will be relevant later). We took a drive into Salzburg and took a picture near the Mozart statue. Salzburg is almost all about Mozart, as many of you might know

4) This cool picture shows the view from our balcony at the timeshare at a little town called Radstadt. This town is located about 40 minutes southeast from Salzburg.

5) One day we also made a day trip to Vienna. Now this day I will never forget, not because of the interesting sight of the Schloss Schonerunn Castle, but because my car almost got TOWED!!! After we visited the castle, we decided to go into the dead center of town. Roads were tight and parking was scarce. I saw a spot on the side on one road and I pulled in. I notice a sign that said "bus stop" nearby so I was not sure. We waited to ask a policeman. A few minutes later a police woman (one of those parking ticket people, which all they do is hand out parking tickets) walked by and I asked her if it was OK to park there. She said no problem and to just get a temp parking permit from the tobacco store. We did. Went for a walk, 30 minutes later we come back by the car there was a tow truck preparing to jack up the car . I ran to the car and said that the police said it was OK. Well, the police had left a tow order on my windshield! Thankfully, because the tow guy had not hooked up the car he just let me go . We took off in a hurry...we had had enough of Vienna.

There will be more here in a couple of days.

Thanks.
