Addicted to Bimmer's...

Greetings from Raleigh, NC. I'm new to this message board however a five time owner of BMW's. My last three purchases were done via European Delivery with the most recent occurring earlier this year in May where I reached 155 mph returning to Munich from Amsterdam. I hope to be an asset to our board.

Hey welcome to the site! How does the Euro Delivery work, I see the pic you attached has a Euro plate yet your from NC. I figure they supply you with Euro reg for the duration of your trip or something?

Congrats on the new purchase, she cetainly looks fine

Thanks... To do an ED I would recommend to first find a local sales adviser who's very familiar with the process. There are some horror stories of picking someone who doesn't have a clue which results in you having a bad experience due to bad advice which could wind up costing you money or worse - flying all the way to Munich and being disappointed. Secondly check out this site by doing a "cut and paste"(http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=25). I've used them every time prior to doing an ED and it's saved me both money on the front end and time on the back end.

When you pick up your vehicle in Munich at the BMW Welt your car will be both insured and registered for 14 days worth of "road work" in Europe. When it's reintroduced to you at your local dealership the plates will (hopefully) still be with the car. Here in NC we are not required to have front plates so I always keep one on the front and drive around with the other on the rear until my plates/registration on my old Bimmer get transferred by the DMV. It's so cool to drive around for two weeks or so until the registration arrives in the mail.

If you would ever like to know more about the specifics of ED from start to finish - just ask. There's nothing like driving a Bimmer like it's meant to be driven - stolen...

Would love to hear a bit more about your experience with ED! You have any route reco's? Would be cool if we got a large thread going for just ED's. A place for rooks to ask questions to you vets and for you vets to share nuances and anecdotes

welcome to the boards BTW!

Thank you... Considering I've got three ED's under my belt (poor word choice for sure), I would definitely be willing to share what I experienced from the first meeting with a Sales Adviser, delivery at the Welt, driving the vehicle like it was meant to be driven to redelivery back here in the good ole' US of A.
