Some additional comments about driving in Europe.....
BMW provides you with insurance while driving your car in Europe and their
policy also excludes coverage the former East Block countries.
BMW mandates a 2000 KM break-in with the original fill on an M3 or about
1250 miles.If the model you're buying has a similar requirement and you are
not going to exceed that amount of mileage, I would wait for the delivery
service at your dealer.
While an International Drivers License may not be necessary, they help you
avoid problems with Police officers with a limited English vocabulary. I have
personally been worked over by two French officers who refused to speak
English. In another case, an emplpoyee in my business had a serious
automobile accident in Germany and found that the license simplified the
paper work. The license can be obtaines at any American Automobile
Association office for about 15$ plus two paspart photos.
Havea good trip.... Bob Murphy murphybmw_at_aol.com
