Question Recent ED people, did you get your owners manual?

Apologies ahead of time but the wife and I cannot remember seeing a physical owners manual with our car at the time of ED.

Upon taking re-delivery at our dealership ( CA was not present, just the lot guy) I didn't care nor even think about a physical owners manual. It's not there in the glove box.

So, what was your experience? Guess I may need to reach out to my CA about obtaining one and maybe even the nice log book and / or slip case.

Pretty sure thats one of the few items that is allowed to travel with the car. I'm pretty sure I remember seeing one as I think I made a mental note that it fits in the glovebox.

The owners manual was on the passengers seat of my ED when I picked up @ the welt a couple weeks ago. The delivery specialist then put it in the glove compartment so he could sit and show the car.

Ours was in the glove box. We decided to take it with us when we took the triangle and first aid kit. I'm looking at ours in front of me now.

I did remember to remove the triangle and the first aid kit. Pretty sure I left the owners manual with the car but didn't get one back at redelivery.

Now that you mention the triangle, the brackets to hold the triangle have been removed.

I took the brackets with the triangle (and the first aid kit) with me as well...

Recent ED people, did you get your owners manual?

Yeah, same here. Was handed the manual at the Welt and read it on the flight home.

Interesting to note the F83 manual references the car as being an "M3 convertible" throughout...

Upon drop-off at BLG Logistics-Frankfurt the agent confirmed that the owners manual was still present in the car. If you are leasing the owners manual is photographic at lease end inspection, as I believe it is Federal Law that it must remain with the car.

Here is the iTunes link https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bmw-...714042570?mt=8 for the BMW Drivers Guide. Just enter you VIN.

Mein Auto: 2015 428i GC
When I dropped off in Zurich, I asked if I could take the manual and the lady said it had to remain with the car. I took the triangle, first aid kit, rear cargo net, and front license plate bracket (so they don't have it to put on). I didn't know about the triangle mount. Does anyone know if the 4 Series GC has triangle mount?

I know my father was missing his manual as well when he did ED. Left it in the car as one of the 'safe' items to leave in the car, yet he never got it when the car came to the US. Seems to be a trend here. hmm...

I didn't take a chance. I took mine out.

Mine was in the glove box upon re-delivery, right where I left it.

I left everything in the car at drop off - Manuals, triangles, first aid kit and Zoll plates. All arrived with the car. Third time I have done this. Just lucky? Crapshoot? Maybe we should do a poll to see what the actually success/failure rate is.

Cheers

That's the way it should arrive, as our build sheets have the warning triangle listed. It wouldn't accept re-delivery then.

^^ I don't believe I would go so far as not having my money or my car over the triangle.

At dropoff last Thursday in Munich, I specifically asked LOGINOUT about both the manual and the US plate mounts, and was told to leave them in the car. Hopefully the manual will be there when my car reappears in California.

I left my manual in the glove box and it was there on redelivery, but until reading this thread I hadn't realized but my triangle brackets are gone.

What a bizarre set of inconsistencies. Why remove brackets in a trunk? Who would think to remove a manual? Is there a warehouse in Oxnard somewhere filled with confiscated BMW manuals?
