Question Euro delivery in January?

I'm thinking of a 335xi coupe for ED, but the best time to go would be January, meaning I'd have to order really soon. I am thinking of Munich (p/u) and cities includiing Venice, Prague and Budapest (in some rational order), along with the bleak sites such as the 'camps'.

We live in Seattle which will be soggy then. Any thoughts about going that early in the year?

My thought is that the weather won't likely be any worse than Seattle. Enjoy your trip!

Only concern I would have is snow when crossing the mountain ranges. Be prepared to put on chains if necessary and make sure that your tires are at least M+S. I would probably have buffers to plan around weather.

Exclamation

The spousal unit nixed January. (Okay, I did read the postings and frankly March is probably a much better time to go). I am working on getting to Europe around March 9th or 10th. Life will be simpler that way and I probably have most of November during which to order.

There seem to be lot of options for ordering, e.g. through various dealers. If I buy from someone out of Seattle, a dealer in central or eastern Washington or elsewhere, will it have an influence on a loaner car or general service availability from the local dealers when I finally get the car back to Seattle?

What are the financing issues on an ED purchase?


Any comments on Nav/I-drive? I was not initially going to consider that, but then concluded it was probably a far more elegant solution that sticking a Garmin Nuvi to the windshield.

Thanks fellow Bimmerfesters.
