COMMENTS

BIMMERPOST members often post and share their excited experiences with their BMWs - from first placing an order, to delivery, to moments throughout ownership.

When we read these posts, we often picture the smiles and expressions on the faces of the happy folks experiencing moments of pleasure at the BMW Welt seen in the video below. Do you remember yours with your bimmer?

Loved it!! I went through 4 cars last year and nothing has made me feel like the day I bought my z4m 4 years ago. This video reminded me it's Time to jump back in a convertible!

Even if we don't I had the same dumb happy smile when I first took delivery at my dealership

And I'm sure the guys who posted up all the cool journals on the homepage probably had these kind of moments too.

It's hard not to admire BMW's Marketing team.

So you can pick up your new Rolls at the Welt?

Might have to do that...

Great video ... thanks for sharing Jason

I remember my first time ... in 1987 ... then Bimmer number 2 to 7 followed (new 1987 e28 - 535is [proud to say still in our family] > used 2002 e46 M3 > new 2008 e85 Z4 30i > new 2009 e89 Z4 35i > used 2010 e92 M3 w/MT > new 2012 e92 M3 w/MT) and the one I drive now since the wife wanted a Manual > new 2011 e92 M3 w/M-DCT.

The feeling is the same ... each time one turns the key / or pushes the Start ....

When I visited Die Welt on May 9th 2009 the promotion of the e89 Z4 sDrive with removable hardtop was in full swing (Z4's everywhere). and yes you guessed it I got bitten again ... on return to Canada I just had to get into a year end new Z4 e89

When at Die Weld I could see the smiles on so many fine people taking delivery ... my only concern would be when doing ED would be "where does one park this fine spanking brand new car at night and still get some sleep"

So my choice has always been taking delivery locally.

Mine: hitting the start button on my 1M for the first time and enjoying that "cold start" symphony.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

My first and latest BMW were picked up at Munich (factory delivery in 1993, BMW Welt in 2011).

No dealer can replicate the sheer pleasure and the smile of that... none.

I couldn't agree more with you. I bought lots of BMW vehicles but none of them made me live my life like I did with my Z4 sold 2 years ago. Trust me on something, don't think a convertible 335i can be on a par with a Z4. The latter ones are pure joy. Low profile, wide stance, pure thrill.
