Euro Delivery on deck!

Just placed my deposit for my 2015 M5. I have been going back and forth on this and almost pulled the trigger on a E63 S but I was able to resist the dark side. It helps that the special David and Jimmy are running at Steve Thomas is exceptional. I am looking forward to my trip to Germany and cannot wait!

Thank you David and Jimmy!

Nice sir. My pickup date is 12/1. I plan on doing the Dingolfing Tour as well (where the 5, 6 and 7 Series are produced).

Can't wait.

So I'm gearing up for my trip. I leave for next week for business on the East Coast and leave for Munich on Jan 12. It's going to be a quick trip, my delivery is 9am Jan 14 and then back on a plane Jan 15 at 7am. Anything I should check out while in Munich? I believe I have a tour set up after my delivery.

Thanks everyone!

For those that have taken ED delivery of their M5s recently, did you get a USB stick for European navigation? Or was the mapping information loaded into the iDrive?

Ugh, like I need another USB stick. I was hoping for rubber mats, lol. I guess it's back to Weathertech.

Thanks all.

Where is the USB stick plugged in? Center armrest or glove compartment or either one is okay?

Update with Pictures

Wow, time sure does fly and I have been meaning to post pictures. I have had the car for about 2 months and enjoying it more than I thought I would. First thing I had done was an Xpel Ultimate shield clear bra on the entire car. I finally hit 1200 miles 2 weeks ago and had the service done. A week later I had my Undercover Performance DP's and Akra exhaust installed. WOW, is all I can say! What an incredible combo together and the car sounds wicked when you want but docile at freeway cruising speeds until you open her up. My favorite is cruising around town with the sunroof open. You can hear the turbos spool at low speed and the throaty sound of Akra when you crack the throttle.

Overall, the car just loves to be driven and does a great job cruising in LA traffic. The DCT is an awesome transmission and more fun than I expected. It shifts with such precision and does an equally impressive job on downshifts.

Thank you to all the forum members for input and advice. Just waiting to do a tune and not sure what else.
