Thanks for posting your link here ... I remember seeing it before (not completely I was disturbed).

I looked at it again today. It sure is a nice individual selection. Congratulations on your external and internal colour selection. It looks real great.

I enjoyed reading your well prepared commentary and the photos are just excellent. I'm on my third digital camera, it now looks like my iPhone has surpassed the quality of my digital cameras time I guess for a good D-SLR or a compact interchangeable-lens camera ...

Your photos are certainly clear and crisp. What camera did you use if I may ask?

Thanks again for sharing providing this excellent thread.

Cheers,

Rolf-Dieter

Hi Dackel,

Thanks for the additional links. It was my intention to keep this thread in the forefront so that new members can find it and get a hold of it easily.

To this end can I ask you to make this a Sticky so it might stay up in plain site for the others.

I always enjoyed your postings tremendously, naturally I have high appreciation for it since I made the factory and museum vacation in 2009 visiting BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and VW (Dresden, Leipzig, Stuttgart and finally München in that order after I attended the 2009 Hanover Messe).

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,

Rolf-Dieter

PS. I will revise my original post to point the reader to your additional links you just posted here.

Thanks for the camera information. 40% off sounds like a good deal.

Lets not forget about maintenance.

Most of us are fascinated with our car and the Honeymoon might last quite a while for most of us. Then there is the so important aspect of maintenance on our high end cars. There are a few of us that never ever read the manual. Some of the posts I've read suggest that the individual does not know where the manual is.

Yes I know, our cars have the so called No Charge Scheduled Maintenance 4 Years or 80,000 KM (50,000 Miles). We all know that we paid for this up front when we purchased the car. So we need to make sure that we do in fact get what we paid for in the first place.

There is of course the exception to this, there are people were this is of no concern to them since they change car(s) before the warranty expires. And that is perfectly okay, except the lack of maintenance will in the end impact on the sales value of the car or trade in value.

My note here is for people that do care about there car and once they sell it know it has been well taken care of for the next owner. So I am sure we can all agree that reading the maintenance section of our manual and or some of the file I've attached below will benefit us all. Many questions that people seam to ask in this forum can be found in the attached link. So I find it is of value I like to share this with this fine Forum Community right here.

This first link takes you to the BMW web site where among other things you can find the BMW Service and Warranty Books for your car. Simply enter your cars birthday (year), Series and Model you then be taken to the Maintenance Section PDF file for your car (many more subject are provided in this valuable link).

To open this PDF file ===> CLICK Here

Should you plan to keep your car for a longer period then 4 years then there are more detailed documents regarding maintenance on the internet. One of the good ones I've found (also a PDF file) is by Mr. Mike Miller. I cannot post a link to his file since it is Copyright © 2010 and he requests not to post it on the Internet since it is also being updated from time to time. You can Google to find it or PM me and I can provide a copy to you for your use only.

Happy reading on some snowy or rainy afternoon

It is important, when you think about it right after our house the car or even cars are the next most expensive investment we ever make.

Cheers, Rolf-Dieter

Have an M3 booked for a weekend, and will also try a 640d another weekend. The only car related event is to drive to the Ferrari Museum in Modena.
Do enjoy your weekend trip. Let me know how you like that 640d. Make sure you take photos and post them here in this thread when you visit the Ferrari Museum. I am sure others will enjoy seeing them as well.

Go to post #1 in this thread and note your trip {Four Part German Roadtrip 2011 Journal (56K Warning)} is number 2 on this list I've also made it a link in my signature so others might enjoy it as well. Even the European Museum Moderator Dackel has added a post with great links here for others to enjoy. Hopefully more people will add there photos and experiences here too.

Cheers,

Rolf-Dieter

Thank you so much! Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to see the Museum, so I guess I just have to go back.

Always great to go back ... you have to do it like I did in 2009, I went on a boys trip ... combined it with a bit of business. My trip was as follows;

Toronto --> Munich --> Hannover * --> Hamburg** --> Dresden*** --> Leibzig **** --> Stuttgart ***** --> Munich ****** --> Toronto.

* Hannover Messe (held every year on Technology / Machinery etc).
** MINIATUR WUNDERLAND HAMBURG ---> 2012 Latest Video
*** VW Glas Factory
**** BMW Factory
***** Mercedes and Porche (Factories and Museums).
****** Die Welt, BMW Factory & Museum

I had a blast great trip ... good food and gemütlichkeit along the way and naturally visits to family members as well.
