Premium lounge access ?

Hi,

I have looked a little and didnt find a thread, or did not find the correct key word.

we are going to do an ED in Oct, we are taking our 24yo daughter. if there are three of us, does BMW allow all 3 of us into the premium areas? can I include her in the delivery process? tours, etc. if it costs a bit thats fine, just curious how that works.

Thanks

I can't imagine that it would be a problem. Enjoy. It is a great experience.

BMW allows you, your spouse, your immediate family members, friends traveling with you, etc. Just don't show up with your entire extended clan.

BMW is very accommodating on the use of the Premium Lounge. During our May 2016 group delivery, our delivery was on a Friday at 9:00 AM. Many of the group arrived early afternoon on Wednesday, so we checked into the Premium Lounge, had lunch, and did our paperwork early on Wednesday afternoon and then toured the BMW Museum. On Thursday, we had a morning private tour of the Welt so we used the Lounge that morning. On Friday morning, we used the Lounge again before our delivery. Our group delivery was a total of 14 cars, 10 M2s, 2 M3s, and 2 M4s. There were a total of 32 people in our group, including three couples, one of whom had a teenager, who didn't even pick up a car and were traveling with the group in rental cars.

On both of our EDs we brought a daughter and her husband to the delivery. They rode with us to the Welt, enjoyed the Premium Lounge with us and attended the delivery. They were included in our formal photo. I am sure you will encounter no problem and it should be a great experience for all.

My sister was doing an internship in Germany when we picked up my wife's z4 and she came to Munich to be with us. I emailed the Welt in advance to let them know about an additional guest and they had no problems with accommodating my sister. Though we had to get her an Uber from the Welt to the hotel, you know, cause z4

Premium lounge access ?

What everyone else has said - our ED was last March with me, wife and our three teenage kids. They gave us all tickets to the museum and full access to the premium lounge. Also even though I was told that I could only take one other person on the factory tour, they gave all five of us tickets. As the plant tour was on a different day they also gave us tickets for parking in the garage. They really will treat you like a king! Have a great trip.

Yes, there were three of us and it was no problem.

As SD///M4 and others have said, you can access the premium lounge before/after your delivery day. I highly recommend doing this we went the day before and it was a great opportunity to relax in the lounge and take in the full experience (including walking around the Welt). Our delivery day was a little fast-paced, so the opportunity to see everything the day before was great.

Looking forward to seeing another ED on the streets in Utah.
