The Euro Delivery is SO much fun. Make sure you go on the plant tour, it was one of the highlights of my trip. Visiting the Mercedes museum was also phenominal.

I cant wait to go back!
Thank You. This is my 2nd ED so I have done all the fun stuff before. I have not done the MB museum which is #1 on my list this time.

Lufthansa still does that but you can get better deals elsewhere. Volvo is the only manufacturer that I know of who will give you 2 tickets for free with their overseas delivery program.

6M. I hated the DCT...... Sorry DCT guys....

That's sounds like a good idea. But last time I did ED, I only drove the car 70 miles before dropping it off.

BMW takes care of all shipping details and it takes 8 weeks for west coast deliveries. So you have to be a patient person if you want to do ED. But it is really fun to track your car back to State side.

but keep in mind, you wouldn't be paying msrp for the vehicle, so I would like to know the true savings... thanks!
I paid Euro Invoice plus a small dealer fee. If you do the math the savings is around 13% compared to US MSRP..... Overall, I am pretty happy with the price I paid.

Wait is the worst part of this whole thing.... But all the mods (which will be very minor stuff) will be here by the time car arrives.
