Ordered Placed!!! 2013 MW via ED



I can finally post on here. Scheduled pick-up for Feb. 18 in Munich. This will be my first ED.

I plan to visit Venice, Pisa, Monaco, and drop off in Nice, France. Fly from Nice to Barcelona to catch a game at Camp Nou. And finally, Barcelona to Paris for a few days.

Any recommendations on hotels and restaurants?

This is what I'm debating right now before booking my flight. If I rent winter/snow tires I would have to dropoff in Munich which would destroy my current plan...

It would be a bummer to have to change travel plans, but Germany, Austria, and Italy all require snow tires to be mounted if snowy or slushy conditions exist, which is quite likely in February.

You can be fined for hindering traffic if the summer tires force you to drive too slowly. Should an accident occur, there can be insurance implications as well. You may want to to check the ED insurance policy for any exclusions or talk to your insurer to know what your limits of coverage are.

True story.
I ordered back in late november, and my prod# just updated to en route to USA like 2-3 days ago. It's going to be probably another 2ish weeks before I get her.

Then again, the wait has given me time to buy mods.
Tow hook plate holder, LUX V8, plastidip camo green for accenting, performance shifter, and time to consider trying to go 2 months without dropping 2k on dedicated snows.

So really the wait is just making me spend more $$ on a car that I dont have yet. lol

Thanks everyone! My car is still not in production but it shows up as status 112.

I have now completely rerouted my driving to avoid Austria due to their compulsory requirement of winter tires. I'm looking for snow chains to carry just in case now.

Anyone have a set they would be willing to rent out?
