European Delivery In Progress...

Awesome little hotel I'm staying in, they have internet access allowing me to post and make the 12 Hour rule I would have posted earlier During Flight if the internet on the Lufthansa flight wasn't down

Just flew into Dusseldorf couple hours ago after being awake over 48 hours, rushing to the airport directly from work, and a looooong flight from LAX > MUC > DUS but at least had a very nice dinner at a Korean restaurant

Will be attending the MEDICA convention tomorrow morning and leaving in the afternoon (hopefully via I.C.E.) back into Munich to take delivery on Friday and then driving to the Dingolfing Factory Tour immediately after.

Very excited and will post pics after the delivery

Thanks for the update on the progress of your trip. Sorry to hear that the Boeing Connexion was down on the LH flight. May be Boeing decided to take it down earlier than they announced (end of year).

Good luck with delivery. Try to get some sleep/rest on the ICE ride, that way you'll have full attention to conenctrate on and enjoy the Autobahn

Thanks guys, actualy Connexion1 was online but just not able to access the internet. Fly attendent told me the internet just happend to be down, hopefully it will be up on the flight back so I can do more posting.

I will be boarding the I.C.E. in about 3 hours straight from Dusseldorf to Munich and checking in and getting some rest so that we can be the first at the BMW center on 7AM tomorrow.

That's a good one. "The Internet is down!" When all else fails, blame the internet gnomes. "It can't be our equipment, it must be somebody else."

Sort of like, "We didn't loose your bags, it was the other guys."

Cheers

Hi Alex,

It was nice meeting you too, didn't see you around and I was in such a hurry that didn't get a chance to say good bye before speeding off to Dingolfing for the factory tour which we were 20 mins late to but they still let us in

Hope you had fun in Spain, post pics of your kick ass 5er when you get a chance

I'm finally back and 50% over my Jet Lag... I would have posted if my trip wasn't so rushed and tight scheduled.

Been traveling Up and Down Germany due to schedule conflicts and such but the trip was still so much fun, I would not buy a BMW any other way!

Write up and Pics to follow soon... cropping and re-sizing in progress

DAY 2: Back to Munich

The Dingolfing Factory Tour was great!

Saw:
How a flat sheet of aluminum turned into a hood in less than 5 seconds.
How cars were "married" (joining of the body to the rest of the car)
How modern and advanced the factory was by utilizing robots for transportation and assembly

Learned from the tour guide that most V12 7 Series and higher end cars were being built for their Chinese customers

Pic 1: Back in Munich from the Dingolfing Tour
Pic 2: Yours Truly on the side of the street
Pic 3: The coolest "Parking" sign ever
Pic 4: Reserved just for me

DAY 3: Munich to Bonn

It was time to head out to Bonn and meet up with a couple of friends when a Warning Sound came on and a Triangle with an exclamation mark was displayed on my screen.
It was the RTTI informing me that there was an accident some distance ahead and the delay was 30 mins about 10 or so mins of driving we were slowned down to almost a halt and saw Pic 1

Pic 1: Overturned Land Rover and Totaled BMW E39. Drivers are the guys on the right so glad everyone was ok
Pic 2: Passed through Audi's Factory but didn't have time to check it out. Nothing but Road, Trees, and courteous drivers (I love this about Germany) for hours
Pic 3: Our Suite at the Hilton in Bonn (birth place of Beethoven), overlooking the river
Pic 4: Pic from window of the Bridge and River
Pic 5: Rushed to Köln to meet up with a friend and took a pic of the Cathedral of Cologne which unfortunately I did not get a chance to climb
