European Delivery Experience?

Has anyone had a recent European Delivery experience? I'm heading to Germany a week from today to pick up my '07 SL 550 and would like to hear from anyone who has used this program -- so that I can be better prepared and have an idea of what to expect. I'm also taking the car on the Black Forest Road Rally so that I can enjoy it for several days in southern Germany and northern Austria. Would be good to hear from anyone who has done this recently.

I've been considering that program for years, but only new MB I bought was manufactured in USA.
I don't think you'll be surprised with MB delivery. I would rather worry about having the best time in Europe. You know that Venetia and Paris are withing 1 day drive from Stuttgart? Even when France and Italy have 130 kph speed limits, not too many drivers observe them. Be careful with radar detectors. Some police might get you arrested just for having one.
I don't think I need to tell you to enjoy it? I know you will

I have not been, but I am sure it would be simply awesome! I am going to order a new BMW with their European Delivery program soon so I have been researching it. I am a big performance / racing fan so there are two main reasons for me to do the European Delivery...The Autobahn and Nurburgring Raceway. There is only one cost effective way to run your own car on these two famouse stretches of pavement, and that is a European Delivery.

Also, I have done a Museum Delivery on a C6 Corvette and that was an absolute blast. The Corvette delivery is in Kentucky as well, so I can only imagine how much more fun it would be in Germany, especially since you will have the car for a few days before it goes on the boat. When we picked up the Vette, it went on a truck back to Vegas later that day. Just being in the factory and seeing the process is worth it enough and really spikes your passion for the car and its a great sense of pride. Besides, if you are planning on keeping this car for a long long time, being a ED car will up the value by a lot once its a classic.

Have fun, take tons of pictures, and let us know how it went!
