So the ED for US customers has a cheaper MSRP than having it delivered to US? is there a price to buy the ED delivery or is it included in that lowered MSRP? Also from what I understand for Canadian customers the MSRP for ED is the same as CD (Canadian delivery). why is that? I thought they were trying to promote that tourism to Germany.

Yes, 7% less.

Not sure what you mean - the ED price is simply lower, and all it includes is delivery at the BMW Welt, optional factory/museum tours and food.

As a special bonus, BMW has a deal with Lufthansa where you buy one ticket and get the second one free (except taxes) - aka the Lufthansa 2-4-1 deal.

The destination charge is the same for US and ED deliveries, in other words there is no extra charge to ship the car back to the US if you do ED.

As I understand it, this is more of a deal between BMW AG, BMWNA and the customer - although it definitely encourages tourism to Germany, that wasn't the main commercial concern. My guess would be it's because there aren't as many economies of scale in Canada... or perhaps just too few takers to justify all the paperwork.

Yep, very sure. I took advantage of it on my 2007 ED, but not this time around - depending on where exactly you fly from/to, dates etc. it may be cheaper to buy your tickets elsewhere.

But it's nice to know it's there - and sometimes it's a very good deal.

I did it too, but be sure when you talk to the travel agent that they give you the full estimate for BOTH tickets. Mine sneakily gave me a PER PERSON estimate so when I got my CC bill, it was double what I was expecting. Still a good price, but changed my expectations of overall savings.

All-in-all, including my entire trip and expenses, I still saved money from if I were to buy it here with a good deal. No better way to get a BMW than through ED IMO.

Well said and agreed.

I was able to find airline tickets for MUCH cheaper elsewhere. Cheaptickets.com i believe.

Also use Priceline for hotels. I think i paid $65 a night at Kings Hotel. Heard people were able to even get the Marriott for that price as well.

Did you write the ED article in Roundel?

I am a new person on this forum and just love the M3's and seeing this ED is just truly impressive. Looks like when the time comes for me to purchase a M3 I will certainly do this ED.

congrats on your new purchase and thanks for sharing this experience!!
