Subject: RE: <MISC> European delivery plan
>1. Is there more than one location in Europe where a person can take
>delivery? Where are they?
They used to have places other than Munich to pick up your car, but I think
they stopped it. In any case, they used to charge you for shipping to
another location. Call 800-932-0831.
>2. Is there more than one location where the car can be turned in for
>shipment to the US? Where are they?
Sure. Amsterdam, Antwerp, Bremen, Bremerhaven, Berlin, Frankfurt, Geneva,
Hamburg, Kaiserlautern, Cologne, London, Madrid, Nice, Oslo, Paris,
Sindelfingen, Zurich. Also some cities in Italy by prior arrangement.
>3. Is the insurance package good for all of Europe including England?
Not sure. In May, 96, it was good for all of Europe including England,
except for former Eastern Block countries. In July, 91, we drove all over
Eastern Block, and it was covered. Call 800-932-0831.
>I also would like to have comments (good and bad) from members who have done

My comments are all good. Did it in 85, 91, 94, and 96.

I could be wrong, but I think it is $36k.
