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

Nice job JSpira!! much better than the earlier thread we had in the past!!
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.

One question, should we go back and add the dates for our previous EDs?
I´m waiting to hear back if we can bulk load the old dates.

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?
Other than mine, I only see two people listed following the BMW Welt opening and it's possible they are not confirmed.

Never mind... I found the nifty edit this event button and took care of the miscues. I'll just slip away quietly now.
No worries. Thanks for trying to ensure the accuracy of the calendar.:thumbup: I wouldn´t have minded fixing the posts but I esp. appreciate good housekeeping on the part of those posting. (I have to fix over 30% of all posts which leave out important details in the subject field, such as name and car - all people seem to write is ,,pick-up``).

If you need anything else adjusted or edited, just let me know.

In a fit of excitement (as soon as I got the date confirmation email from my CA), I ignored the rules of the calendar entry - I didnt put in my car information!! Is there a way to edit this?
Glad you were excited but you didn't come close to following the rules of calendar entry actually and the only reason I didn't delete it is because I hadn't starting working on July yet.

So you got a free pass instead and I put the car model in - as well as your name, which you left out. :dunno:

Can anyone tell me how to put my info on the ED calendar?
They are in the first post in this thread but it's not a bad idea to reiterate:

POSTING YOUR DELIVERY DATE
You can post your delivery date (please, only confirmed dates) by clicking here.

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 metallic or JSpira E60 550i Carbonschwarz metallic

Don´t put other details such as options in this field please. It makes the calendar too crowded and I will have to edit them out. (N.b. "M-sport" is an option, not a model, and will be deleted.)

2.) Select the date.

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

Optional 4th step:
4.) If you want to include your appointment time, include it in the "what car are you picking up" field so others that day can see your appointment time.

You should be able to edit (see if you have an edit option). If not, send me a PM and I will edit.

Any chance we can get the calendar to allow for inputting of dates into 2015? Won't allow anything past 12/31 (not that you could pickup on that day anyway) -- Thanks
All fixed - was that quick enough?

(Thanks to Tim for rectifying the issue in about 25 seconds :thumbup:)

How did it go? Is the WELT open for viewing of the cars and displays?
The BMW Welt is of course closed while Germany is on lockdown.
