Blogging European Delivery

I'm currently blogging our experience with European delivery of a 2007 c350 on my website.

I'll be updating all week as we go through the fun of Germany in december!

GREAT BLOG! I almost did something like this when Bought a new Volvo C70 turbo coupe, in 12/00. Talked it over and over with my (now ex-) wife, and we decided to a bus tour of Scandanavia instead, having a new car at Goteburg would be fun but OTOH we didn't know Swedish, and what if we took a wrong turn, on the map, we'd get lost for a day. Bought the car before we went on vacation in the end.

Too bad you had to give the GPS an IOU. Your C 350 looks gorgeous especially in gloss black.

Too bad your new car almost got written off on the first day, that would have been a biatch! Yeah they have bad drivers over there too, just like home, only difference is that the Autobahn pileups are faster speed ones, and they have helicopters to clean up the mess faster in Germany.

Look forward to reading more! You'll remember this story for a lifetime.

You lucky b*stard

Terrific blog -- very well done. I did almost the same ED trip back in October. Plan on seeing your car stateside in about 6 weeks, maybe more. I hope you have better luck with your European export license plates than I did -- while the car was in Mercedes' care, someone stole both of them. I had wanted them as a nice souvenir, and even asked that they make sure that I get the plates, but that's not going to happen.

Nice pictures of your trip -- seems we were on many of the same roads and stayed in the same hotels (well, I didn't have the experience you did with the first one, thankfully, and you chose the Zur Tenn over the Interalpen, but the roads were similar). Some amazing scenery, and wonderful driving experiences.
