Seriously great writeup. I could nitpick for plenty of spelling and grammar, but I can only imagine how long it took, and how you must have felt probably feeling like you can't wait until you're done typing and rushing,etc... I kid... But seriously, there were spelling mistakes, etc..

I only mention the mistakes because i think you should totally get this story published some place! (Other than e90post). Am i serious? I don't know, probably not, but it was run to read. A lot of people's stories, well they're not great start to finish, but you really did a great job. Thanks for taking all the pictures and taking the time to share.

Finally, I'm not sure how, but cheers again to you for having what seemed like random girlfriends in Europe.. (anyone else notice that???) But seriously, the way you talk about that blonde chick (i mean no disrespect, just don't feel like looking back for a name), you should marry her. I think it's hard to find a girl wanting to spend that much time on a somewhat car-focused trip (I know this portion wasn't really about the car, but you know what I mean). I just think of what would happen if I wanted to get a GPS to verify my top speed with my wife, and I just think, she'd flip out and fight me all the way for wanting to do something "dangerous" or whatever. Every time I've reached VMax (in my last car, heavily modded e30), I was alone except once when she was with me; and she was asleep..otherwise it wouldn't have happened.

Cheers dude. I can't believe you're planning on doing it again. You're already planning on selling the e92?

Congrad!! It's an amazing story.
I'll definitely have a Euro delivery next time, hopefully I'll afford a Porsche by then.

Btw, They let you do an europe delivery even you only lease it?

Yes. Lease, financing, or bmw select all qualify for european delivery.

Porsche do european delivery also you just have to pay extra for it whereas with bmw u actually save 7%.

Speechless
I have saved many a link to ED posts, but this...
Wow
I need to decide what year and what car will be worthy of the big ED for me, and I need tour guide.. ha ha

ps Please bring your car out to the Chatham, NJ cars and croissants meets when they start up again in the spring. I am trying to boost the BMW contingent :-)

amazing trip and thanks for sharing it with us.
I too, did the ED back in Aug of last year and it was an experience I will always remember.
Wow - 10,000 miles on premium gas in Europe. That's your M3 lease right there
BMW had an extremely good lease plan on the E93 M3 last year. You could lease a base car on ED for around $500

Nice color obviously. You have my car's twin brother!

I did ED years ago for my last car, but nothing approaching this scale. That looks like an epic trip!

I am really glad for you. I am from Munich and I think it is fantastic that BMW offers this program for you guys. It must be great for you to visit Europe and pick up a car NOBODY IN EUROPE CAN BUY! I am also young and have had some nice cars and wanted to get a 335is with ED (cause I moved to LA to study) but then I ended up not getting it. But I am glad you did. Have fun with it (even you have horrible speed limits here in the US)!

Amazing journey and all, but IMO you totally raped a car many people can only dream about.

No technical sympathy in mind whatsoever.

Awesome trip man Great fotos!
I live in the netherlands. And i found that weed in amsterdam ridiculous expensive hehe. But hey in amsterdam you only see the tourist in the shops
Thank you for complimenting us for speaking good english. We do our upmost best.
I love the german highways. Here in NL the highways are good but they are all limited.
Wish i could afford a 335i maybe over a year a second hand. The ring is 200km from my house. When its summer we go there for weekend trips. Its awesome. You must go back to austria in the winter. Go to big ski resorts the skiing is the best and the Apres ski is a must to do! for me that is a week of each day getting drunk and party. Its great haha.

I loved your write up! Good work and awesome fotos. And please introduce me to your best gff

Greetz
