Since you are doing US delivery it will drop quicker than ED

Oh yeah....Not that it matters,I could be the first one to drive the 2013 M5 in Columbus...LOL.
I so wanted to do the ED delivery, but couldn't go becuase of the visa restriction. In the end I guess, I was lucky enough to get the M5 at a good discount ( invoice price) from the local dealer. Can't complain.

Did you specifically request Wolfgang to present your car? I would also like to get the same guy who presented my previous car.

How do you know your wife hasn't figured out the specs from this blog or reading your email?

I just told her that we were going to Germany... Didnt really expound past that. Plus my real name is Jerome, so she wouldnt be able to find me from my handle.

Wolfgang in the white smock. He is the only guy you want presenting your car.
