you are way overthinking this. Are you paying cash for the car? That is the only way you wold be receiving the title.

Basically it works like this
  • you complete the paper work for the car 14 days prior to delivery
  • bmw takes care of all the needed insurance & licsencing issues while in europe
  • you can finance with whom ever you want. If you reck the car in europe, it's not a whole different than if you wreck it here. Between insurance & you, the bank will get their money
  • do ed, save some cash, have fun, stop thinking so much:smile:
