In Reply to: European Delivery--Any/all thoughts are welcome... posted by H.T. Schultz on November 25, 1999 at 12:20:04:
Have not taken delivery of a car in Europe, but have driven in Germany, the Benelux countries, Italy and England. My only suggestion would be to get a good set of maps wherever you are going, take someone to navigate, avoid driving in large cities if you can but do it, you'll have a ball.
: I'm considering BMW's european delivery program but would like to hear some input from anyone who's taken advantage of it. Any problems? Any tips? Any interesting travel experiences over there (I've never been to Germany and would probably plan to combine a 7-10 day vacation with my pick-up). Do you simply negotiate your best price over here and then coordinate pick-up at the factory over there? When I discussed this option with a local sales rep I kind of got the brush-off. Does he receive less commission/hold-back as a result of Euro delivery? Any and all thoughts would be appreciated.
