Safety jackets (again)

Does anyone know how much the safety jackets cost at the welt? Sounds like they are no longer included (if they ever were)...

We got a pair for free three weeks ago. They had scores of them stashed in one of the rostrums in the delivery area. It sounds like it all depends on whether your specialist feels like looking. Honestly, they are available in the BMW store and your ten Euro credit will cover them (I think). Maybe now that I'm at home I should sell mine. People really seem excited about these stupid things. On my first ED I just went to Lowe's and bought two for $8.00.

We didn't get them included either last month (we asked both our delivery specialist and our paperwork rep), so we had to buy them at the Welt store. They were 4 Euro each for the orange generic ones and 15 Euro for a pair of yellow BMW emblazoned ones.

Plus you receive a 10 Euro credit to spend at the store (at least that was the case in October).

If you really want low costs, Harbor Freight Tools has cheap versions in the U.S. Whether or not they meet German standards probably doesn't matter as you probably won't use them.

Our delivery specialist told us he was going to get us a safety vest then he aaked where we were going and when I said Prague he said you'll need two and gave me a packet with to in it. That was about 3 weeks ago

I'll chime in, we got two vests thanks to our delivery specialist. He said that when they have some available downstairs, they will give them out if required. Otherwise, you will most likely need to buy them beforehand or at the Welt shop.

He actually mentioned our growing controversy on Bimmerfest of vests or no vests!
