F10 M5 Competition European Delivery Completed in 9 days and 2,294km

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi Guys, I just completed my European Delivery and it was a family trip of a lifetime. My Wife, two boys ages 7 and 8 and I flew direct form the Yukon, Canada to Germany. We picked up the car on the 13th August and headed for Como, Italy via the Swiss alps a few day later we returned through the Swiss alps via some mountain passes heading for the black forest.

On the 18th we showed up at Nurburgring not knowing it was DTM race day with 84,000 fans their, it was tuff trying to find the entrance to the ring because the roads were all jammed with traffic. We then went around Nurburgring in 11:45 with the kids and luggage. I was so jacked up on adrenaline that I forgot to program the M buttons at the ring, so we went around with every thing set to comfort. I thought there would be time to do that stuff when they check the car over but they don't do that you just buy a ring card drive around the corner, wave the card at the machine and go for it (I love the German way).

I love the car but I don't have anything to compare it to since this is my FIRST CAR, yeah I know you guys will find that funny but up in the Yukon a F 350 has been a better choice. In the winter we will do a road trip or two to California to visit some of you guys on here. A thew things I noticed with to car is the exhaust is way to quite, lots of road noise from the tires and the traction control works way better in the rain compared to the 2013 that I test drove. I all so need to thank <M54ccibo> for all his help with travel planing.

Those wheels have been keeping everyone up late at night sitting at the computer in their underwear chatting on forums trying to decide, I just flipped a coin and went for it . They do grow on you over time, its a nice clean look.


With the St. Gotthard pass we turned off just before the Ambri airport, but you mite be able to get off at the entrance to the tunnel. It looked like the traffic was backed up about a mile before entrance to the tunnel, I would guess its because you have to pay a toll.

Looks great! I love Black on Red. Once you get your spacers and E-race rear section exhaust on you will be very happy.
