Well, the Munich delivery center suggested I contact Gerling when I got back to the states to file a claim. I sent them a detailed fax describing the when's and where's. I got a response back a week later giving me a claim number. My CA BMW center said that if it doesn't get taken care of at the port, they would swap the rim out before delivery to me.

I agree, I kinda felt guilty socking them for the cost. Odds are, I will scratch them up here too. This is my first car w/low profile tires. Quite a nice change from my 12 year old Accord.

Getting the same car delivered "new" to me again is kinda nice. Of course, the closer to the delivery date, the more excited I am!


When I dropped the car off at Harmes, they were insistant that I should tell my dealer I'd picked up very minor scratches on 3 of my rims from the curbs and those European garages. He kept insisting it was zero-deductible insurance and it would get fixed.

I was amazed and, to be honest, not 100% comfortable about just sticking the insurance. After all, sooner or later, I'll nick them again here in the US. But your experience is they just take care of it? Amazing.
