Mein Auto: 2012 M3 Cabriolet
2012-01-15 Euro Delivery Thread

Hello Together:

Here goes the start of my thread for the European Delivery of an '12 M3 Cabriolet!


07 July 2011: Colleague recommended Adrian as CA for European Delivery. Studied Bimmerfest's recommendations and then sent Adrian first e-mail inquiring about a 335is Convertible.
08 July 2011: I waffled because I did not yet appreciate the simplicity and functional purpose of the BMW instrumentation cluster.
06 December 2011: Sent the Build Your Own specs to Adrian for a M3 Cabriolet. During which, I requested three dates, and thought that the 18th of January 2012, would be too early to receive delivery, but decided to try that date on a whim. Also selected a couple of other dates in February as being more realistic.
07 December 2011: Received confirmation from BMW of a pick-up date for 18 January 2011. Wow!
07 December 2011: Realized that I gotta rush on travel logistics!
07 December 2011: ED Winter Tires paid/confirmed.
07 December 2011: All air travel purchased.
08 December 2011: LOGIN-Out drop-off reservation made and confirmed.
16 December 2011: Confirmation Letter received from BMW and Dates confirmed.
18 December 2011: Purchased 3-series convertible back-seat luggage.
28 December 2011: Factory Tour confirmed.
09 January 2012: All vehicle paperwork signed and arrives at BMW Mini of South Atlanta.
15 January 2012: All luggage packed and prepared for a sleepless night prior to tomorrow's flight.

Mein Auto: 2012 M3 Cabriolet
Arrived on Tuesday a bit early to Munich Airport.

Taxi to Hotel. Did sightseeing in Marianplatz. Slept...sort of.

Wednesday: arrived at BMW Welt at 8:00 am. Check-in easy with paperwork by Harold. Went to Premium Lounge and then at 9:00 am, was met by Bernd. He was great! He spent a solid hour with me, perhaps more, going over details.

A high-season number of deliveries is 170...for low-season (i.e. today) there were only seven cars scheduled.

Did two victory laps.

Parked with the valet, and then shopped, watched the motorcycle demo, then did the factory tour.

It is a gorgeous, sunny day here. Eating now in the restaurant, and then taking the beautiful car out on the streets!

Congrats on the new wheels! She looks beautiful. I am eagerly awaiting to hear about your travels through Europe. I hope the weather holds out so you can get some top down time. I am sure the sound of that V8 is intoxicating

Headed today to Neuschwanstein Castle. Rain in the forecast. 38 F temps forecasted.

Contemplating how I will hold an umbrella out the top of the car with the roof down...hmmmm.

Adding my congratulations. Judging by your choice of automobile and color combination, you are clearly a discerning gentleman of impeccable taste. Now, about your choice of season for your delivery on a cabriolet... Just cast your eyes on how dazzling that Le Mans Blue looks in Tuscan sunshine. In June.

Great color combination!

Ah, you are so right about the season.

The selection of Euro Deliv was not so much about the weather as it is about my impatience!

Ah, but in Florida you never get to see weather like this, so it's still cool and different!

Besides, the good part is that you'll have it as spring starts in Florida and won't that be fun!!

You are so right!

Okay, here is what ED Winter Tires had on my car when I took delivery. The rims look nice! And the rubber appeared to be new.

I didn't know that the M3 did not have run-flats... So instead, it's a can of Deutsch-strength Fix-A-Flat and a cellular phone. Oh, sorry, it is called the "Tire Mobility Kit.".

Or, Fix-A-Flat.

Hehe.

You know, I really wanted a red color. But the LMB just looks so outstanding on this body style that it won over my heart. Toss in a bit of dark window tint later, and she'll be pimpin'. LOL.

I'm with you on the color conundrum. I really wanted Melbourne with Bamboo, but just couldn't warm up to the way the color looked in direct sunlight, which we have a lot of here in SoCal.

So may we hear a bit about your travels, please?

The only thing that doesn't work on the M3 is the MediaSnapIn and the Plug-in. The Plug-in via USB iPhone cable sends power to the iPhone, but the system does not recognize it. The MediaSnapIn (

Continuing (don't know why it cut off)

MediaSnapIn does not function. Plug-in does not function, other than provide electricity to the iPhone.

All of the options were selected for this...but guess I will need to stop at service center to figure it out. Other than that, the engine becomes more beautiful sounding each day!

Mein Auto: 2012 M3 Cabriolet
22 January 2012: Spent time in Karlsruhe shopping, then up to Ramstein to visit a friend for lunch. Off to Bebra, a former rail-yard marshaling area where my Dad was stationed in the US Army back in 1946. Took a picture of him there in front of the old building -- it was pretty darn cool.
Arrived in Berlin at 11:45 pm.
Had rain almost the entire day. At times it was so heavy that everyone slowed down to 60 km/h.
M3 handled the water in the most capable manner.
We seem to be stopping at petrol stations quite a bit ! hahaha.
