Das 12 hour compliance pics!

Had an phenomenal experience at the Welt today! Did the factory tour and loved it, enjoyed a quick lunch in the premium lounge (with lots of coffee - still adjusting to time) and took delivery of my new Bimmer! Sasha was my delivery specialist. He was great.

Thanks to everyone who's been helpful in the process. I would have been lost without the Bimmerfest community.

Nice pics, isn't the automatic coffee machine a great thing? I know I had at least 3-4 trying to wakeup that morning.

This car is a f@#%in$ dream to drive on the mountain roads! I mean, I knew it would be, but it is surpassing my expectations in every regard.

Spent a night in Zurich where we met up with some friends. First thing we did was go swimming in Lake Zurich. Awesome. The city is beautiful and super expensive. I didn't find it boring as others on Bimmerfest have. Our friends took us to a great restaurant and bars after. Hotel Helvetia is a very cool boutique hotel.

Friday, we headed for Mürren, but stopped in Lauterbrunnen for about an hour en route. I'm glad we decided on Mürren, as the view from our hotel balcony is absolutely incredible! It's on the edge of the cliff. Enjoyed a fantastic dinner of fondue and lamb at a restaurant called Stager Stubli. The dried meats we had as an appetizer were from Gimmelwald and some of the best I've ever had.

Today (Sat.) we're taking the cable car up to Schilthorn for breakfast before heading to France. I'll post pictures soon!

Hey! Nice car hopefully I get to see it before we leave Europe. Sorry about not calling you on Thursday... I set my alarm for 730.. woke up and proceeded to fall right back asleep till 10. (I usually set.. 2 alarms.. for work.. go figure.. jet lag.. time change.. lol)

I had quite an adventure after we left the bar that one night.. pretty much I think the U-bahns stop at like 1? From what I could tell or 8... so I was going up and down platforms lol.. ended up taking a taxi back to the hotel.

Did you end up going to Fussen? I'm there now thankgod for free internet.. Anyways send me a pm with your itinerary next week I'll see if I can't meet up with you guys down there somewhere.

Congrats! Beautiful car and what a car to have on the mountain roads of Europe. If you haven't read it yet, you'll enjoy the article on the 128 in the current Roundel. One quote, "the 128i coupe's six-speed reveals itself as the purest BMW driving experience available new today."

Interesting your 1er has an ashtray cover? Does it have 12volt outlet in there? I thought they took those out in 2010...

I thought you could still order the "smoker package"... but by default there no tray.

there's no ashtray cover. Just a open tray like everybody else's.

Leaving the Languedoc region tomorrow morning and heading to Antibes, with a quick stop in Aix-en-Provence for the afternoon. We have a great bed & breakfast booked, but have some friends in Cannes, so we'll likely have dinner/drinks there. Can anybody make a suggestion?

Just dropped off my car in Nice with 1653 miles on it and no dings/scratches. I made the mistake of running it through a car wash that wasn't touch-less and it's got swirl marks all over it (that's what you get with Jet Black)...

I'm assuming the dealership will wash/wax/detail it before I pick it up?

And so the wait begins...
