ED without plans

I just completed the most amazing ED experience. I left last Wednesday with reservation in Munich for Thursday night (overnight flight). The only other reservations were for the last two days in Paris. My wife couldn't go so I invited an old classmate and friend. We took a road trip through Europe. The experience was great. The BMW Welt is a fantastic experience. We went early which made time for the factory tour and a quick trip through the museum. All of which was very cool.

I then took delivery of my beautiful black sapphire 535i. After the obligatory victory lap, we set the navigation to Amsterdam. After the traffic cleared, we tried out the car, following an M6 and an Audi A5, we easily reached 155 mph and were able to maintain a speed between 110 and 130 in the areas outside of the cities. What a fun drive. We made it to Amsterdam at about 11:30 and found a room at the Marriott. Experienced the extreme freedom which is Amsterdam the following day and left the next (crazy place, that Amsterdam). Beautiful city and very much worth a stop.

We then headed to London, drove to the Eurotunnel in Calais, word of caution pre-book to save a wad of cash. Drove into London and found a great rate on a website called laterooms.com at a nice hotel off of Fulham. We checked out the next morning loaded the luggage in the car and left the car in the parking garage (I don't advise driving much in London) We saw Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Parliament, the Tower of London. We took the underground and buses, ate fish and chips at english pub. After a day in London, we were ready again for a slower pace. We headed toward Stonehenge. Found a nice hotel on the way that was fully booked but they directed us to a rear by Bed and Breakfast which was old and certainly not nice but it was clean and the family who owned it were really nice. At breakfast, they gave us list of sites to see. We saw Stonehenge..... This was just Tuesday....

more to come.

9-28-09 ED, Just returned

Picked up my 2010 535i with X-Drive on 9-28-09! Monoco Blue, cream beige leather, head-up display(very cool), navigation system, premium package, value package, HD and Satellite radio, split fold-down rear seats, heated rear seats. And my IPhone/IPod actually works in it! Nice time was had by myself, husband, son (11) and daughter (5). Very good experience with family in tow. BMW was super nice and accommodated the kids for the whole experience. I would recommend it to any families out there who are considering ED.

We did our own itinerary as the hotels BMW Travel usually works with do not work too well for younger kids. We spent the first two nights in Munich, then drove to Neuschwanstein for the tours and then down a little south of Innsbruck to Lagenfeld to stay at the AquaDome hotel/spa. Great hotel with multiple pools, hot springs, saunas, everything you can think of to relax. Super for kids and adults. From there, drove to Venice, Italy and took in the sights for two days. Drove the car back up to Munich and the guys at the Vikase-Harms were amazing. Due to apparent security issues at Octoberfest, the traffic was crazy bad and I was super late for my drop-off appointment. They waited for me to get there and took care of everything in about 15 minutes. Seamless.

Attached photos is in Austria. We missed the official Neuschwanstein spot, but the Alps were a pretty decent backdrop (even though I take bad photos)! Now just waiting for my baby to make it over here so I can drive it in my own mountains!

535xit pickup 10/8

Just so I don't miss the 12 hour rule - here is my posting!!

Picked up 535xit this morning. Excellent experience. Didn't get to do the factory tour, but did hit the museum. Just not enough time in the day. We're off to Bolzano in the morning!!

Thanks for everyone's advice along the way.

New 135i

Here she is. Le Mans Blue, M Sport in Heidelberg. What a great ride and a fantastic ED! I highly recommend the factory tour. The robots and the entire construction process is amazing to watch. We also enjoyed Oktoberfest which is something else too. I'd skip spending much time in Nice. The south of France is quite touristy and busy. Cannes is MUCH nicer and there are some amazing ancient hilltop villages just north of the coast. Nice is frankly a bit of a dump. Lyon however is stunning and the food was fabulous.

Late to das Buch - ED on January 8

I merely signed for the car and hoped on a train to Zurich because the weather was so bad and the ED tire guy wanted over 500 Euros for tire rental and to pick up my car in Zurich and take it back.

Next time I'll bring my own winter tires and rims.
