Thank you for the compliment lol. Im glad you choose to see it as passion not insanity lol. Sometimes the line is blurry for me between those two lol.

No need to say sorry about the long post. Enjoyed every minute of it.
That was one fantastic trip I hope I can do in the mere future, and of course, congrats on the car!

Sweet! My IS is on it's way right now. Timeline on mine was too tight for ED with my busy travel schedule, but otherwise, I'd do it!

Next one for sure!

I did an ED and all I can say is that if you a getting a new Bimmer it's the only way to pick it up!!!

However a PCD is just as fun but on a different level!!

15k were the trip costs (probably a bit more now that i think about it). I put only taxes and fees as a down payment. The only mod that i have is the procede tune and on map 3 cold start thats how the car sounds. I love it too lol.

It will be louder, yes. But not quite as loud as the 335IS because it has a slightly different exhaust than that of a 335I.

I am very envious of OP right now! Your epic adventure far surpasses my own expectations and imagination of how Euro delivery is.

You have now motivated me to definitely do Euro delivery, whenever I get the opportunity.

Thank you for sharing, and great action shots you got there!
