My 440ix Vert ED! It begins~

Posting on the flight over to Munich! Started this process on the 25th of Sept.. 2015!
Today I finally traded in my 2012 335ix coupe and am heading towards my new new girl-
2017, Tanz Blau with Golden Brown interior.. EVERY options except the parallel park system (as a NY'er, I'll park her myself!)

I know this threads are pretty common and somewhat ego driven, but what the hell! Lol

Nice. I'm confused though, you traded in your car before you went to germany? what are you gonna drive when you get back until it's delivered?

Well.. For the 1st time in 20+ yrs, I'll be without wheels for about a month! But because of where I live and work, it's not a problem.
Just going to be stressful waiting for her to get to America!

And I even let a bunch of BMW interns use her for a photo op! They loved the fact that she was going to NYC and that I would allow them to check her out and sit in it~
Been a great day.. Still smiling!

Sharp color combination.

Tanzanite Blue? Just curious, as an individual color what is the current upcharge this year? I believe last year it was still under $2,000 for TB though of course one can subtract from that the charge for metallic paint which itself increased last month.

Sorry for the small pics!
I posted from my IPad and didn't know they'd be so small on a regular computer.
Of course, I can't figure out how to post pics from my regular computer, as every time I try to upload a pic, it says the file is too big!

hopefully someone can repost like ^he^ did~

The price for the paint was 1950.. 2550 for the interior. Though, that's not what I paid~

More importantly.. how the hell did you post those big pics! LOL
Have a few more I'd like to post but they are all small thumbnails

Very nice ride. Are you doing a PCD in Spartanburg as well when she arrives in the US?

That is what we are here for. Do this anywhere else and people would think you are a pompous ass; here we are just happy for you (and a tad jealous).

I'm not.. was going to, but then heard that it would delay my delivery even more!
Maybe (if I buy another BMW) I'll do it again next time.
For now, I'm just hoping I get her back sometime around the 15th-20th of Oct. Wishful thinking!
Unfortunately, my ConnectDrive isn't working (again) so I don't know where she is right now. Was told by the DropOff/In guys that is was suppose to be transported up to Bremenhafen on Friday at the latest.
