Brief update about pickup of 335d on monday

I forgot to sign the notebook but the ED experience so far is amazing!! We picked up my car on monday and did the factory tour afterwards we did the museum tour on Sunday after we landed.

We did some drives on Monday but spent today driving to do neuschwanstein tour and then drove down to Geneva. We filled up the half tank hoping that would get the tank down enough for the drop off tomorrow but even after multiple trips and in Germany doing alot of runs of over 100 mph on autobahn we still managed to average 31 mph after the drive through Switzerland.

Here is a photo of my car. Sorry I don't have a photo of me by my car but it is on my camera and I don't have a computer to upload from.



Loving it so far! Sad to part with it tomorrow and can't wait for it to arrive back home.


Some more Photos:

My 1st time seeing the car coming down the stairs from Premium Lounge!! :-)

Now for the long wait.

question about your routing Füssen to Geneva

I pickup my 335d on April 21 and head to Füssen on the 22nd and to Geneva on the 23rd. When departing the Füssen area did you take 7/E532 northwest up to Memmingen to catch the 96/E54 or did you perhaps take 12 west? What route did you take further west to Geneva?

I don't exactly remember given it was a very long drive we just followed the drive nav to destination. I will try to retrace route and see the route.

I think we caught the E532, but we had to do a slight detour because there was some festival going on on one of the streets to E532, but it looks like the direction we went.

BTW, i uploaded some more photos of my car, none with me, but still sorting through photos. :-)

Great car, congrats! By the way, how did you schedule your drop off in Geneva? I am planning to drop off there on June 17 and any tips would be appreciated.

I actually called them the day before but because they weren't that busy, it was ok with them. They definitely want you to call ahead of time and make an appointment because BMW ED is a side job. Rita's cool though. If you don't want to call them, you can try emailing them at : zenhausern@ritschard.ch and give them your basic information. They did actually ask me to fax some paperwork the before you get there. Believe it was the purchase order and also some paper that you sign in munich that you picked up your car... they do want you to get there before 4 PM btw.
