We should make a petition to BMW, If Nissan can d it for their GTR owners I don't see why BMW cant do it for their M vehicle owners. I would be happy with just pics.

So I'm bringing some detailing supplies with me. Anyone else doing the same?

Poorboys Spray and Wipe waterless wash & Optimum Spray wax at a minimum here.
Might mix up some ONR as a quick detailer too.

I was thinking about taking some quick detail and cleaning racks. Also contemplating on taking some blue painters tape to protect the front and side of the car specially at the track. Anyone else bringing some?
I would hate to get my car state side with some euro rock chips

There are rolls of clear film that home improvement stores sell for protecting cabinet shelves and such that I've used for track days. They've worked really well and are far cheaper than the film you get online and much quicker to apply than 2" painters tape.

Let's just keep our cars looking pretty and tape-free for the pics .

Don't worry your call will look brand new when you pick it up in the US. They fix everything at the VPC (Vehicle Preparation Center)

(14/17 days left now)

^^^^^^What he said. This is very true and they will even repaint a section if they have to. The key is when you turn in your car that you report every single little bit of detail/damage no matter how small so they do not miss it during their normal inspection process.

This is great news for me, I was already considering taking it easy on the drive outhere. Now I have more of a reason to really enjoy the car. I am really looking forward to our drive on the autobahn.(it's on my bucket list)

Attention:

My car is now in the body shop. That is all.


PS:
@Suave, FYI the Mflight club expressed some interest in meeting our group during the trip. Figured I'd let you take the ropes on that one.

Not everything...And keep in mind, any problems that need addressing at VDC take forever, so that much longer for redelivery:
Conditions Report - A representative at the drop off location will inspect your vehicle and complete a condition report.
The report will specify any damages that occurred to the vehicle while you were on your trip.
Exterior damage that is noted on the inspection report and requires repair will be covered under insurance.
Please note that wear and tear items, such as surface scratches, scratches to wheels, and paint chips will not be repaired under insurance.
Please note that interior damage is not covered under insurance unless the damage is a result of vandalism.

Front license plate holes

Heres a question I have not seen addressed - have been lucky enough to never have had a front license plate installed on my previous three cars over 15 years driving in Houston (even though technically it is now requirement - used not be). I always state to the dealer to not drill holes in the front bumper of a new car purchase. So for ED, does the BMW factory/prep center install the temp European lic plates with drill holes and if you specify that you absolutely do not want them on final delivery to the US, will they replace the bumper (or perhaps a whole lot simpler, simply attach the front European plates without drilling holes!)?

No, they don't drill holes. They put it on there with two-sided tape...
