BMW’s European Delivery program is one of the most hidden gems within the offerings from Munich-based automaker. Unfortunately, not all BMW customers are aware of this special program that allows you to pick up your car in Munich and go on a sightseeing European tour aboard your own BMW.

We won’t go into all the details around the European Delivery, but we will provide you with some useful links. Our BMW European Delivery section will give you more insight into the program, BMWUSA page describes the program even further, and last but not least,

Thanks to one our readers, Ariel, who shared a video with us, we can show you some of the experience one goes through after picking up the car. In this case, Janitha (, an owner of a 335is with DCT, takes his car through an unique experience into the Alps.

The goal was simple: an Ultimate driving experience. 1000 miles of twisty and windy driving nirvana, the scenic Alps across Germany, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland, all spread out over 10 days of pure Bliss.

This is a compilation of a few drives and mountain passes on my 335is immediately after I picked it up via the European Delivery program.

Notable mountain passes in the video: Stelvio pass, Timmelsjoch, Pordoi pass, Bernina pass, Fluela pass, San Bernadino pass, St. Gotthard pass, Grimsel pass, just to name a few.

Quite fascinating, isn’t it?

    LOL @ BMWBLOG for deleting anything critical of his site.

    For those who didn’t see, it was a post citing the source of the material.

    I’m sure this one will be deleted by the nazi Horatiu too.

      Post something constructive and it won’t be deleted. There is no source to post, the video was send it today by a reader Ariel with a link to Vimeo. As you see, we gave credit to the reader that sent the tip and to the user that created the video. I’m sorry that we don’t have time to go searching on the “minuscule” Internet to find out if it was posted somewhere else first. From my point of view, we gave proper credit based on the info we have. Plus, it was posted on Vimeo/Youtube, open domains to link from.

      This is your 6th comment in the last month coming from the same IP and bashing BMWBLOG, so you’re clearly associated with another website and come here to bash instead of contributing. Again, we give credit when it’s due.

      Keep posting inflammatory and defamatory comments and they will be deleted.

      And every time you posted something, you have not given your real email address and used a different username. You even posted a link to a random site when you filled out the form. Nice try, don’t think we’re stupid.

      Everyone, carry on. I felt the need to address this comment and this is probably the last time. Playing nice is over, we will start deleting anything that insults anyone and it’s untrue.

    Cite your sources properly and you won’t have to sneakily delete thoughts like the Chinese thought police.

    • Horatiu B. says:

      At least we link to other bmw sites, none of the others do…go check! Despite us having some unique articles, interviews, test drives…that says it all!

      Btw, use the search function to find out how many times we link to sites, just type in: “Source”

    Horatiu, don’t even bother. I’ve been on this site for far too long to know the real truth. This is def someone that doesn’t like you guys and comes here trolling. Running a blog also I know exactly what you mean in regards to sources. Sometimes they get lost and just cause it was posted on a forum somewhere, your job is not of an internet police to go and search for it.

    bmw blog has been fair and I’ve seen you post tons of links to competitors like bimmerfile or bimmerpost and that shows what kind of people you are, caring for the community, so thank you for that and this is one reason why I keep coming back, you guys post all news, regardless where they come from.

      I agree Horatiu. Soon as I seen he used the name “Nazi” I lost all interest in what else he would have said. What an ass! Keep up the good work!

    I did a couple of European Deliveries and the experience was phenomenal. Congrats to the owner of 335is, what a great car.

    P.S. @Daniel, well said.

  5. Jose says:

    Drama drama :) Don’t worry about it Horatiu B., I don’t see anything wrong with what you did and I think your explanation was self-sufficient.

    On a different note, I am taking delivery at the BMW Welt of a 335d, beginning of January. Any suggestions? I read here in the past that you guys have done a few EDs.

    Hi, I would like to drive the San Bernardino pass this summer and continue down through Italy to Modena – what is my best way to approach the San Bernardino pass, coming up from Lake Como or from Zurich??
