First, thanks to Gene on behalf of everyone here for having maintained the "official when are you going to munich" thread for the past 30 months.

When he announced his retirement from this task, I suggested we move to a calendar-based system and, magically (thanks to pix335i :thumbup:) a calendar appeared about an hour later.

Please post your user name on the calendar followed by car details when you enter a date on the calendar. For example
JSpira 550i in carbonschwarz

is the only way to see who made the post (otherwise, it just shows a calendar with a bunch of cars with no owners).

The links are in the main forum, on top next to the wiki link.

For quick reference, the calendar is here

To make an entry, click here

Thanks but I can only take credit for the idea, pix335i pulled the calendar out of a hat.

And Gene did do a great job for the past 3 years.

Very Nice!
Just for everyone's reference - put your info in the Subject line for it to show on the main calendar. (I was unsure of exactly where I was suppose to put the info since there is a field for Title, Your Car, and the main message body).

+1!:rofl: (unless I can get out of the e91...)

Also thanks to e36m3r for the old thread. I think that this is much easier. One question, should we go back and add the dates for our previous EDs?

(BTW, Bikie, I like your avatar. I have the Fulcrum version of the Bora...)

I´m waiting to hear back if we can bulk load the old dates.

Thanks for the Calendar Enhancement

Just a few words of thanks from someone who just used the calendar and has used this site as my "BMW Bible"....
- to JSpira for conceptually updating the calendar/starting the new thread,
- to e36M3r (Gene?) for previous 3 years' efforts on the old thread, and
- to pix335i for creating the calendar.

It is really first class.

One little glitch. Only allows about 5 entries for a single date after which the date goes blank except for a line that is confusing but when clicked on will bring up the disappeared entries.
ok, we're on it - danke for the info

Update On Creating Entries

I´ve cleaned up the calendar, deleted duplicate entries and such. I´m also going to add German holidays.

The entry format is simple and requires 3 steps.

1.) In the TITLE field, put your screen name, followed by your car and color (your choice of english or german of course)

i.e. JSpira 550i carbonschwarz

Don´t put other details please. It makes the calendar too crowded and I will edit them out.

2.) Select the date

3.) In the ,,What car are you picking up?`` field, put your details such as interior color, options, etc.

I have a prereservation through Irv and am anxiously waiting to hear if I get an end of October delivery.

I am curious how several people already have delivery dates confirmed post Welt opening.

I didn't think BMW gave out the allocations yet?
