Thumbs up tlp's 2011 e92M3 ZCP SG/FR Euro Delivery

I thought I would take some time to share some of the highlights of my European Delivery on 3/29/2011 as I wait for final redelivery of my e92 M3.

Let me just start by saying that ED is the ONLY way to purchase a new BMW. Sure the wait may be longer but it's the experience and trip of a lifetime. The amount I saved on ED more than paid for my trip and the memories are priceless.

I would also like to thank Ryan Amico at Steve Thomas BMW. He has been a pleasure to deal with and the entire process was as smooth as silk with zero surprises. I would highly recommend Ryan.

Ok, let's get to the trip. In a nutshell it was tailored to pay homage to all of the great German auto manufactures.

Day 1 - Arrive in Frankfurt and Stay in Stuttgart
Day 2 - Visit the Porsche Museum, take in the sites around Stuttgart
Day 3 - Visit the Mercedes Museum
Day 4 - Arrive in Munich take in the Sites
Day 5 - Side trip to Inglostadt - Visit the Audi Museum/Forum
Day 6 - Munich, BMW Welt, ED, Museum, Factory Tour
Day 7 - Side Trip to Garching, visit the ///M Studio

I took approx 750 photos....I will focus primarily on BMW ED and M Content below.

Great pics. Great color combo. Great presentation by BMW. I agree with you that ED is a must. Wasn't offered when I bought my m3 ; (

Thanks Guys!!!

This production has been long in the making.

I first starting talking to Ryan back in Nov., ordered in late Dec to take advantage of the $1,500 cash back & skirt the $500 msrp increase. Then we pushed out the production until March to take advantage of 6NR (BMW APPS).

No regrets at all!!!

Looks great! Didn't go with the FR Extended because I thought it would be "too much" red, but seeing it again, it's growing on me. Love the ZCP's on SG.
