: Wow!! time flies, I've got less than 2 weeks togo to meet my 540ia out in Munich. .... YES!!! I am very anxious.
: I will be arriving at "Munchen" at Feb 13 from LAX.
: Based on this boards advice, I will be staying at Hotel Jederman in Munich. Will be staying there for the first two days, and the rest depends on the weather.
: Ideally, I would like to go to Stutgart to see some Mercedes and Porschs. I would also like to goto Salzburg and Innsbruck, by my understanding is that, to get to these places, I would have to drive thru the Alps. If so, i don't think I want to drive my new car in middle of nowhere, in deep snow.
: Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated.
I agree with the other posters about activities and strongly second the Romantic Road route. You should also go to Dachau while you are in Munich.
It's important to remember and a sad part of the history that still plagues Eastern Europe today.
German food and wine is very good, so don't be afraid to experiment. I wish they were doing Euro deliveries for the M5. I think it would be a great incentive to take delivery there. You'll like the Jedermann, but it isn't very fancy.
