Check in Time

If the reservation email says 9 o'clock check in time and 10:30 actual delivery, does it mean they are going to start presentation at 10:30, or is it an actual delivery? In other words, what would I miss if we show up by 10? I've done it before, but can't remember.

Delivery Time is when they walk you down to the car. At check in is when you would complete all the paperwork which takes maybe 20 minutes. Depending how busy they are you may have to wait to start that. I think a half an hour might be a little close to get that stuff done.

They ask that you not be late for check in time. Delivery time is actually an internal data point for the time that the you are supposed to pass through the electric gate at the top of the stairs.

You can check in early. I checked in first thing in the morning. I started eating and let them know that they could start at any time by getting me. They then did the paperwork and gave me a time to meet the delivery specialist after lunch.

I had the same schedule that the OP has. Overslept and did not get to the Welt sign in area until 9:20 AM. I was asked if I wanted to participate in a multi-media presentation in advance of my 10:30 AM delivery appointment . I said sure, so my presentation was scheduled for 10:00 AM. At 10 AM I met my delivery specialist who would take to the multi-media presentation but he suggested that time would be better spent if went straight to my car where he could review my specific options/functionality of the car. We were done shortly after 10:30 AM.

The only bad thing is that I did not get spend much time in the Lounge to enjoy all the wonderful things they had to offer.

I actually visited the Welt the day before the delivery. I was told if hung around until 4 PM I could go ahead and sign all my paperwork.

I've been pondering what the best schedule is. My conclusion is to take a daylight flight to London. Later, see the factory and have an afternoon delivery followed by a museum visit the next day. If you really want suspense, then the factory and museum one day and delivery the next. From a historical and chronological standpoint, maybe the museum first then the factory then deliver. That way, you would learn about history of the brand, then recent history of your car through a factory visit, then delivery.
