Mein Auto: 2007 335i/2008 335i
Picked up a White 335i on October 30

Our journey took us from Miami to Atlanta to Munich arriving on Saturday morning where Peter was waiting with his X3 Diesel to take us to the Marriot Center. The same day we went to Dachau (a must place to visit), Saturday night at the Hofbrauhaus. On Sunday we took the Gray Line tour to Neuschwanstein Castle, Sunday night at the HB again. Monday morning early pick up of our White/Black/Aluminum, Steptronic,Nav,Sport Package and thanks to Beewang we were able to drive to Berchtesgaden where we took a tour of the Eagle's Nest and the Bunkers, the same day we drove to Salzburg, stayed at the Renaissence Hotel for a night, then to Viena arriving at the Intercontinental Hotel for two nights, back to Munich on Thursday and drop off on Friday mornig. From Munich to Rome for 4 nights and back to Miami on Tuesday. Great trip. Can't wait for the M3 to do it all over again.

I can't thank enough this forum and I would be more thank happy to help anyone who wants to get more information about ED.

Enjoy the pictures.
