As a frequent travler to Germany I like to just point out a few points / tips ...
1) You will be paying close to if not more then $11-/US Gallon of Premium Gas.
2) You will worry about your car during the night when it is parked.
3) You will encounter some very small and narrow roads.
4) If you travel to Italy you will pay a lot of tool on the Italian Autostrade (Autostrade = Autobahn)
To overcome some of the points above I like to ...
- Stay off the Autobahn enjoy the scenery and save gas ... except here and then
- Stay in B&B's or smaller Inns the car is always safe
- Stay of the Autostrade whenever possible and avoid small narrow mountain roads.
Having said all this, disregard what I said you are if you do the ED spend a great deal on a new Bimmer so you may as well do the whole nine yards and enjoy yourself. As they say nothing can top the experience to legally zoom along the Autobahn at top speed (once you pass the break in milage of your new car ~ just a reminder).
Whatever you do when you do go ... enjoy it will be an unforgettable trip ... you will see
