Just did this in May. Waiting for car.

Painful wait, isn't it? It's like time stands still.

Congrats on the M3. Awesome pics and wrietup. Munich is such a beautiful city. I cant wait to go back.

So how does the delivery process work? You drop it off at the airport and they ship it to the States? How long does that take? And is that an extra charge?

One question about the speed limits. When the sign says 120, isn't that kph which is about 75 mph?
Great photos. Lived in Germany for four years and it is definitely 120kph not mph. If you really went 120mph in that zone there were probably a few photos of your car snapped by the radar based cameras that are about every 200 meters on some of those roads. They'll never catch you now though!

May?? WOW. So it takes over 2 months to get your car imported? Why so long?

Those speed limits are in kph? Then the sweet girl in BMW and the gentleman who delivered the car to us told us they are in mph. I figured it was kind of weird since distances are in kilometers. But they definitely told us mph. And every one else on that autobahn must have thought the same thing bc everyone was flying. I loved driving over there. They drive fast but safe. Drive on the right and pass on the left. You don't see that here in Miami.

Jaadoogar, you did you ED in May and you're still waiting?!?!? Don't tell me that. The waiting is beyond painful.

Shogun1122, he was extremely nice. I believe his name was Christian. Everyone at the Welt went out of their way for us. They truly make it memorable.

Dd1981, I suggest you speak to David Aviles. He will walk you through the whole process. While in Europe, they give you 14 days of free insurance. And the drop off is all included, nothing extra.

Mr yogi, I'm looking into the bandwidth. I'm not sure what happened as I have not added anything.

Thank you everyone for your kind remarks. This forum has truly been helpful when it comes to my car. I'll definitely post new pics when I add all the goodies.

That is incorrect!!! All speed limits in Europe are in km/h except UK. So 120km/h is only about 75mph.

You're correct Crazy Ivan. I corrected myself earlier. I was misinformed while over in Europe. Chances are a couple of cameras must have caught me. Tourists!!!

And yes kmarei, she really is a keeper. That's why I married her.
