European Delivery 24 Sept 2012

Well, I am a bit late on this picture post, due to bad internet at the Westin Grand, but we took delivery of our new crimson red and cream beige 335i convertible yesterday morning. It was a great experience and the car is everything I expected and more. Simply beautiful.

The welt experience was outstanding. Loved the lounge and the delivery was done very professionally. Plant tour was good, but I could have seen more and wanted to stay longer. Even the wife was impressed.

Drove to Fussen today. Learned a trick on the nav. You have to find the u with the colon on top to find towns that have them. Otherwise the nav wont find the name. You guys probably know that. Nav was loaded with the European nav and I was given a nice little USB with our picture on it, plus other welt and plant pictures. Car also had a quarter of a tank of fuel. It was all great.

Already had it on the autobahn briefly and it gets up there fast. Now I cant wait to get it home!

Thanks to the many of you that advised me on the buying decision!

Looks like the weather is still pretty nice there. We are all very jealous. Hoist a couple beers for us.

And really, why can't they give us a full tank of gas?

What time was your delivery? You missed a mini bimmerfest meeting at 10:40 with C-Los.

My delivery was at 9:40. Sorry I missed you guys. I went down to the store to spend my 10 euro gift and get my free key chain. Nice.

Yes, the weather was great. The pictures were taken in Fussen when we went to the castles. We drove down there, stayed at the Hotel Sonne which is downtown.I would highly recommend the hotel as the rooms were great but my favourite part was the reserved underground parking for my baby.

I took the car back to Munich yesterday to Log In Out for sending it back to the States. Again, a seamless exercise, very professional. Took only 15 minutes, but I did have an appointment. Easy to find as the nav took me straight there. I was early so I got directions for the Aqip car wash and squirted her off. Again, easy to find, right off the airport.

I did not drive too much, only to Fussen and back, but did get some top down time and really enjoyed opening it up somewhat on the autobahn. The car moves and cruises easily at 115 and seemed like it had a lot more to give. It was an experience beyond words for this old car guy. Driving at 80 is going to seem slow......

I miss the car already. I am in Paris today and sure glad I didn't bring it here, though. Too much craziness on the parking. These people park on each others bumper and you literally can't get your car out. I would really be stressing here......glad she is safe and on the way home.

I thought that I recognized the outside lot at Hotel Sonne! Our room was on that side of the hotel and overlooked that street and cafe. Nice hotel to stay at, their breakfast was great, and the reserved parking spots with your name on them were the perfect touch!
