Hey Ted, looks like you had a great time; those are great photos.
Did you finally work it out with Joe?

Great Pics documenting a great trip, was great hooking up with the both of you.

just noticed in the pic in front of the house there is a 1,3 & 5 series in the same picture, with the Z hidden in the back..

Your choice of exterior color marks you as a discerning gentleman of impeccable taste (see sig pic below). Congratulations also on the 335d - it was going to be my choice until BMWFS starting giving away leases on the M3 'vert this past winter.

You didn't happen to ask Ron Howard how he was going to get all the modern graffiti off the track for his film footage, didja? Probably easier than it sounds with today's magical digital film tools.

Thanks D! Yes, Joe was the CA for my ED. Nice guy.

Indeed Chuck! My Dad was a bit jealous of your lifestyle. Haha! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with you and Bridgette (sp). And yes, we have most of the BMW classes covered in that pix; no 7-series though...

Thanks! I'm quite happy with the Le Mans Blue. Yes, those M3 leases were hard to pass up! As for Ron, that's a good question; I'll assume there's some kind of digital fix for it.

Indeed! We saw a bunch of 5-Series Tourings (wagons) being delivered that day. This one had the Msport package and it was stunning. If only BMW would dump the GT and replace it with the normal wagon.....

"If only BMW would dump the GT and replace it with the normal wagon....."

Now, Now - we love our GT after all of 6 months. Did not want a wagon because we don't haul things that often, but the GT lets us get most of the volume when we need it, and you can't beat the back seet spatially without going to the 7. I bet there's room for both models....

Excellent travelogue. Maybe I'll cancel my trip. Yours looked like way more fun. I'm going in February.

Any video of the Loginout dropoff? The only nagging doubt about my proposed itinerary is trying to find the Loginout office at MUC. I remember having a tough time finding things driving into Munich Flughafen. Confusing signage if I remember right and one way streets (?). I'm gonna be pressed for time that morning and I don't want to get lost or have trouble finding a place to park the car.

Re: Munich log in/out: if you have nav, just enter the address that BMW gives you in the Welt Delivery packet. Our iDrive took us straight to the drop off -- very simple. Honestly, I'm amazed to hear about so many people missing the drop off sign. It's small....but noticable. You'll have the phone# for Log in/out so, just call them that morning and give them a rough ETA. It was a pretty simple process for us.... Good luck!
