Germany vacation

So on Tuesday I'm flying for the first time in 13 years back to Germany to see my grandmother and aunt etc I'll be staying in Stuttgart for 7 days.
Looking to get a few goodies for my e90xi.
Anything specific to get or look out for over there????

Eat some kaesespaetzel and drive fast on the autobahn. If you want clothes, like a Hugo Boss suit, there is a whole outlet town near Stuttgart called Metzingen. If you're asking about what car parts to buy there, I don't know, sorry.

The autobahn to the Porsche Museum is unrestricted, so hire a 911 Turbo for an hour or two from the museum and cane it

If you're going to Munich for beer you have to find a restaurant that serves Augustiner-Bräu as it's the best in Munich. It's what the locals drink.

Where in Stuttgart? I used to live in Zuffenhausen (northern neighborhood) up until about a year and a half ago so I am pretty familiar with some good local places. Also, very good museum with plenty of old F1 cars, airplanes, WWII stuff, and other cars is the Auto & Technik MUSEUM SINSHEIM.

I ate at the Augustiner Bräustuben and both food and drinks were excellent. +1 if you are in the area.

Thumbs up for MUSEUM SINSHEIM. They have everything including the Concorde and the Russian version that you can walk through. F1 cars galore can spend the whole day there. Plus I think they have a sister museum that I though has one of the space shuttles? Plus you can try to see if you can get in BMW taxi for the "ring " unless you have that 911 turbo with a collision damage waver
Munich was by far my favorite place in Germany and I didn't see BMW plant either

I spent a day at this museum alone.

But, I would be going the other way from Stuttgart. I fell in love with Heidelberg a long time ago.

And as I recall (unless it's changed in the last 5 years) there are several unlimited sections on the A5 after you turn the corner off the A8.
