So you took Natasha, your service advisor..

Great write up and pictures, and respect to you for the thoughtful gesture with the hotel concierge. For most of us there was a point in time when M ownership was a dream, and just to go for a ride was an unforgettable privilege. Some guys apparently forget that. Way to stay down to earth.

Very nice and stunning car, and great write up. I'm planning to buy my next BMW with european delivery. Do you know if it's possible to ask them to do not install the front licence plate on the car? Thanks

Fantastic pics and story of your journey!

I'm shocked that nobody has asked this, but how did you manage to take your "SA" to the trip, instead of your wife/girlfriend?

Wow, great write up. I felt like I was there with you until I finished, looked around and realized I'm sitting at my desk.

I also wanted to say your review was very well written. And what an experience! But 70 euros for a car wash!? It's not even that expensive in Beverly Hills!

For real, Euro Delivery with fine service advisor + M5= Greatest trip ever. How did you manage to take her?

Fantastic. Thanks for the detailed review. We're on our ED trip now, heading to Como tomorrow over the Grimsel and Furka (weather permitting). So far, I agree the car is far better than my stock E60 M5.

Oh, and well done for the hot lap with the bell man. I parked my car outside the Welt over by where the busses turn around (was just quickly going back in and didn't need valet and for it to be parked in the basement). When I came out, there were 5-6 people admiring the car. One of the gentleman said that he'd change his vacation plans for a ride. That would never happen in CA and I am quite sure that I never had one, let alone a group of folks admiring. Very humbling.
