Compliance

Took delivery a couple of hours ago. Received a nice gift for this being ED #4. I've had Bernhard do the delivery all times. Here are some pictures from the first few days and delivery today.

Bernhard has been out the past two times I was there for a delivery (4 weeks ago and last December). Granted, 4 weeks ago was a Saturday and last December was very close to Weihnachten, but I was beginning to think he was avoiding me

Car looks fantastic in white! That would have been our choice if we didn't already have a white car. Congrats!

Love the Schweinsteigr jersey. I spent three weeks looking for one in my fat boy size. No luck. It looks way better on her anyway.

Great looking wagon. How about a picture of the cargo area with luggage? We are considering the same car next spring.

Hi Bikie,

Here are three photos of our luggage before loading, loaded and all covered and out of sight.

We had a large Samsonite, A Large and a Medium Roll-a-board, a duffle, a laptop and a backpack.

I have some photos with measurements sent to me by another fester, that are on my other computer that I can send to you if you would like.

I laid out the dimensions with masking tape in our 2007 530xi Wagon's cargo compartment to make sure everything would fit.

The new 3 series wagon is only about 3" narrower, 1" less front to rear, and the same height floor to bottom of the cover as our E61 wagon.

Thanks for the pictures, my wife and daughter are enthusiastic shoppers and NOT light packers.

Thanks all. I'll have to upload more when I get back home. So far after about 400 miles of 60highway/40 city driving with uphill, downhill and a few 100 mph runs I am at 43 mpg.

Dropped off this morning. A red M4 was being taken away. I was the first drop off for the day. Staying at the Kempinski for the night so I snapped this. They said Monday it will be put on a truck.

That's what they told me also, yet my car sat for 18 days waiting for a boat.

Yea the boat is always a different story than a truck. Fastest I've gotten on a boat was 3 days from drop back in 2006.

Great looking Touring! We too stayed at the Kempinski as it was so convenient to Log In/Out drop off (across the street) as well as co-located with the Munich airport..expensive, but worth it. Next morning..just walked across the street into the airport..now..finding the VAT refund location within the airport...THAT was another story
