Check the pricing details link above to find out the price for Euro delivery. It is about 2700 or so, cheaper than US price.
I should think that you would have a great time. You can also take a factory tour when picking up your car.
Negative thing is that you have to pay in advance for Euro delivery.
Other than having to do some extra paperwork, I don't think there is any loss to the dealer. He was just being his usual "BMW dealer obnoxious" self.
: 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.
