Power of Attorney

Does anyone know if you can send someone to pick up your ED?

I can't go but the discount is so good I'm thinking of sending an employee.

Can another person take delivery with power of attorney?

Thanks

Interesting question. BMW NA should be able to answer it or talk to BMW AG for you if necessary. Make sure you let that employee enjoy his/her time in Munich for a bit rather than taking two very long flights back to back -- though of course one of the perks need not be your car!!

FYI though have you thought about sending a friend instead? If I were you I'd feel awkward asking one of my reports to do this, or to be asked by my boss. A friend would probably be cheaper too; if you paid their airfare and at least part of their lodging they probably wouldn't hit you with an expense report for everything else.

The employee is a lifelong friend and would only go if he wanted to. Not by work order. He is more like a partner and doesn't have a 15 month old like me.

More like subsidizing his European vacation

No you can't let someone else pick up for you, has to be yourself, period!

I don't think so, but if you are titling the car to your company (like I do) then you can put anyone's name on the purchase order instead of your own.

I think you can or at least you used to be able to. When I did before it there was a couple picking up 2 cars. One for them and one for someone else. Minor detail the women did not drive a stick too well and crashed the brand new 5 series at the delivery ctr!! Thought she was in reverse and lurched forward into a pole. Ouch.
