At your exalted age they were likely referring to Viagra.

When does your RS6 arrive?
HaHa, Funny! The Uberwagon should have been here a few weeks ago, but Audi has fallen behind on their deliveries - blaming Covid supply chain, of course.

I wish it were true...

Not happening in 2021 or 2022.
Probably not, but this came from an extended first-hand conversation high up in the NJ hierarchy.

Covid-related uncertainty alone makes this seem almost surely correct. Even if BMW were to announce its return for, say, May 2022, who would be signing up with the lingering uncertainty that's still likely to be there late this year, especially for international travel.

Having done 3 EDs of my own ('08 535xi, '11 535xi, '14 535xi), and having gone through 3 X5s ('15, '18, '20), I have to think the SAV demand is the main reason BMW killed ED for NA.

My ED deliveries were some of my most favorite holidays, but I've become quite content (pre-COVID) to rent a nice car from Hertz or Sixt and drive it around Europe.

I’ll miss being treated like a King for the Day at der Welt. Picking up the actual car was almost secondary to riding the lift up to the top floor where I was actually honored as a loyal customer with comfortable surroundings after a long flight, good food and beer and great conversations with other BMW fans. The end of this program severely dampened my enthusiasm for the brand. Hence, I’m now driving a Volvo and planning on an OSD in 2023.

Do you have any updates? I still can’t accept the fact that ED is gone
Limited appetite for applying CPR on the ED program with supply chain and transportation woes right now - I was told "not now" by a high level NA exec who used to be my neighbor in SoCal

exactly. It makes no sense when you have a shortage of vehicle and unpredictability of travel.

I will be ready to sign up when it comes back but I’m not holding my breath.

Same here. Electric, next time, perhaps.

I don’t expect they bring it back now especially with all these supplies issues but at least it’s good to know they have the intention to revive the program. I am ready to sign up once it’s available again.

Thanks for the update: )

Exactly, ergo, sighting in on a Volvo fully electric Recharge in 2022. Not holding my breathe for a restart of ED. It's dreamware for the foreseeable future.
