You will love it!

Just remember to leave some "down time" in you planning.

I was sad to see they don't include a gumby clock anymore but still a nice little welcome package. Enjoy the trip and the wait!

We leave Munich and head south to a little country hotel just outside of Kitzbuhel. We'll be there for 4 nights. My spouse demanded that at least part of the trip be spent relaxing since doing ED meant giving up a more chill out vacation in Maui. Plus we are taking our two-year old, so have to keep the driving to reasonable lengths. Of course I was happy to oblige

Then its off to Lienz via the the Grossglockner and then two nights in Innsbruck.

I was also bummed that they discontinued the gumby clock. However, I would rather have the luggage tags and the Welt experience over the clock and warehouse any day.

Now I get to spend the next few weeks obsessing over whether or not to switch my choice of interior color.

I used my luggage tags for my ED, and one of them cracked at the top where the band slips through the eyelet . Maybe I'll send it back to BMW NA and ask them to re-engineer it.

We didn't use them on our checked luggage, only on our carry-on. We figured if we put them on our checked luggage, they'd get chewed up, mangled, or we'd never see them again.

I originally ordered a 335i then switched to the 535i... So I got two sets of tags.

Used one set for carry-on and one for checked.

In hindsight, that makes better sense.
