Redelivery of 535i

Got my car this weekend! 7 weeks and 1 day from leaving it at BMW Welt.

Left out of a tiny airport in Meridian, MS Saturday morning at 5:30 to fly to Atlanta:


My CA, Adrian picked me up at the airport, and was driving away in the car about 30 minutes later:


Obligatory low angle pic:


I can't say enough about how easy this whole process was with Adrian at BMW of South Atlanta. I would recommend him to anyone in the South.

Very cool. It is amazing the difference a knowledgeable CA can make in the ED experience.

How long of a drive home was it?

Absolutely. I dealt with 2 other dealerships. One didn't seem to even know how to do a ED, and the other was absolutely unreasonable with both their pricing, and "demanding" that I order the car with Nav, even though I didn't want it.

Drive home was right at 700 miles split up over 2 days. Very much worth it compared to dealing with the other dealerships. And a great way to get through the break-in. When I picked the car up in Atlanta it had 2 miles on it! (I didn't drive it, just left it at BMW Welt)
