Week 30 Support Group

Still a little aways but I figure I post up. My car is scheduled for Week 30 production but no confirmed production date yet.

Production Week 30 = 3rd week in July.

Anyone else with me?
Weird because I don't take ED till 9/18 but my car will be built in July?

Well I just answered my own question today. Went to meet with my CA and signed my purchase order to the factory - no turning back now!

Car gets built Production Week 30 mid July and the factory is closed all of August.

Yep, I'm week 30 too, with a 9/15 ED.

What are your travel plans while in Europe? I'm actually booking all the travel right now. :-)

9/15-17 Paris, France - staying at Le Meridien Montparnasse
9/17 flying to Munich
9/18 ED and sightsee in Munich
9/19 Depart Germany for Swiss Alps, Stelvio Pass, Cross over italian border to Florence, Italy, staying at Villa Fiesole
9/19-9/21, Florence, Venice, Milan,

Ok, my schedule:

9/12 Fly to Munich
9/13-14 Visit with Friends in Munich, acclimate to Central European Time
9/15 Pickup the car, Welt museum stuff, Visit some more Friends in Munich
9/16 Factory tour in Regensburg, then on to Salzburg to stay over night
9/17 Tour Salzburg a bit, stop in Berchtesgaden, onward to Bad Aibling for one or two nights
9/18 or 19 Head to Frankfurt by way of Schwangau and a tour of Neuschwanstein, over night for 1 or 2 nights in Frankfurt
9/20 Head to the Nürburgring, take one leisurely lap late in the day, overnight at the 'Ring
9/21 More laps and oogling other vehicles, back to Frankfurt and overnight there
9/22 Back to Munich, OKTOBERFEST!
9/26 Drop off Car
9/28 Fly home to Boston

Looking like the only day we could really meet up is 9/18 or maybe 9/19 depending on your route.

My plans are not totally set in stone, though. Who knows what might change between now and then. But, my ticket is booked :-)

I also PM'd user SSABRIPO also as he's taking ED on 9/8 or 9/9.
It would be awesome if you guys could join me when I first see my car and we snap a few pics outside the Welt or the BMW tower.

Ah, I'm arriving in Munich from Boston around 11am on the 13th. Therefore, seems unlikely we'll be able to meetup... have a great trip, though!

No, it will depart from Nice. The only drop-off that drives the car to another location are the Italy drop-off points.

dam! too bad too, since it would have been nice to meet up and take some pics. Oh well, we can still try to meet up on the 12th in the evening if you want and have dinner or something.:drinking:

I'm in the air on the 12th.... arriving around 11am Munich time on the 13th... I could potentially be up for lunch, though.... depending on when your train leaves. We can work this out via PM if you'd prefer....

So I tried calling the 800# today and noticed the prompt voice inflections changed, got excited and realized it still said...

"Your vehicle is scheduled for production, but no confirmed production date yet"

3 more weeks to go...
