European Delivery Experience
By miami_dan on


2014 BMW 4 Series 435i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


We've just returned from our European Delivery experience and it met and exceeded our expectations.
We picked up our F32 at the BMW Welt and toured the factory.
In the week before turning it over to be shipped to us in the US we put over 1,800 miles on it and toured Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and France.
The ride was super and although I did obey the break-in guidelines, did not exceed 100mph or 4,500rpm, the car performed very well.

It's a much smoother ride than my '09 335i which has the sport package.
Having the ability to select between "comfort", the default, and "sport" or "sport +" was very nice. Although the numbers don't reflect it the cabin feels noticeably larger.

4/2/16 - UPDATE: After almost 2 years with this car I still love it. Other than the turbo-charger needing to be replaced I've had no issues with it. Still drive, runs and looks great! Very convenient when my wife is with me in the car that when her phone rings the car's blue tooth picks it up and allows us to answer with the car. No switching between phones.

10/2016 Update
Still loving this car! No maintenance issues and everything still works great. It's still a fun, comfortable ride. This both in city and highway driving.

Hey Dan! It's almost freaky because I just dropped off my 428i in Paris on June 2nd for ED. The freaky part is, we visited those exact 4 countries.
