The M5 speaks...
I was on the Don Juan as well... the WW shipping website knew more than my service adviser. Oh well... it is what it is.
The best was an email I got today from BMWTeleservice... I got a nice laugh out of the it. I had done the ED program and driven the car about 700 miles in Germany. I guess when the VPC powered up the car, it sent an over-the-air message saying that it's ready for the 1200 mile service, and my dealer at home is ready to help me with this service. Even the car knows more about its situation than my service adviser.
But I'm taking all this as good progress... I'm doing pickup at the PDC so hopefully it'll be a couple of weeks at most before I finally get the car back.
