It is called European Delivery by BMW. You go to Germany to a BMW facility called the "Welt". You pick up the car and get to drive it around then BMW ships it to the US. Best of all you save thousands of dollars!

What you saved you spent in airfaire. Realistically, what kind of savings are you taking about??
About $11k off list. We r lucky... Airfare s covered by my frequent flyer miles. Got the Marriott Munich for $60 a night on PriceLine. So overall we will save quite a bit, experience picking up the car at BMW, hit the autobahn, and get an international vacation!

That is unbelievably cool!!! BMW truly is the ultimate driving machine! Tell us more about the car... Is it a four-door or a coupe? Color combo? Manual or SMG?

I own a 1999 e36 M3. Estorial Blue Metalic. Dove grey interior. Manual. It is an amazing car.

I hope y'all have a great time. That will be an awesome experience!

And... it's the wife's???? j/k

Did they all ready drill holes in your bumper for that tag? I don't know if I would like that.

That is very cool... enjoy the Autobahn, the food and most importantly...the BEER!

Quick question, why does she get the M3 and you get the GC?

Yeah that doesn't make sense since its going to the US? What's with the foreign tag.

The plate is held on with double sided tape that is removed before they ship the car back. Need the plates to drive around Europe and we get to keep them when we are done as a souvenir.

We actually share the cars, but the M3 will be her daily car. It is OK since every time I make some sporty looking car look bad by kicking their ass in a "Jeep" from a stop light... The look on their face is priceless!
