ED Drop off Process

Hi, Everyone,

How long does the ED drop off process itself take? We will be picking up a new 540i xDrive in June in Munich, and I am in the process of scheduling the flights. Our drop off point will be the Paris airport. Our best flight option is a 12:15 pm return flight, and the drop off location opens at 8:00 am, right at the Paris airport. Is the drop off a 15 minute process, a 2 hour process, or something in between? I am reading that you also have to make sure your car is clean before dropping off, and fortunately there appears to be a self carwash right at the airport as well. Any experiences/stories would be helpful.

Thanks!!

20 minutes if not hurried but no waiting. I had to wait about 10 minutes for another European Delivery return. If they hurry, 10 minutes might be possible, but this is speculation.

My car was clean except faint dirt from rain. They said no need to wash it, only if many bugs.

Not sure how the drop off in Paris works, but in Munich I could schedule a time and date a month before taking ED, especially if you know your flight times.

I would email them to find out. The entire process takes about 15-20 minutes.

About 15 minutes in Nice but since there may be others in front of you or no one at all there is now way to tell for sure.

Unlike Munich which is a 1-person operation that requires some coordination (lunch break, etc), the location at CDG has several people able to help you. TT Car Transit is more like a car rental return (which it is for Renault Eurodrive see attachment). They have a shuttle van that can take you to the terminal or the RER train stop. If you have all the stuff they need, paperwork should take no more than 20 minutes. From my recollection, the car wash was further down the same road as TT Car and I may have gone the ""wrong" way to get back to avoid doing a big loop but my memory gets fuzzy . When you get to the TT Car gate, just drive up to it and the bar will open. Bon voyage.
