I've been seeing a lot of people referring to ordering BMW cars through Europe, hence "Euro Delivery". However, I'm unfamiliar with this and didn't know that one could do it. So does anybody out there had any experiences with this method of purchase? How does the process work? Is it difficult to purchase and then get the car here...pros/cons?<p>Thanks very much

It's really very easy to do. Just ask the dealer to hook you up with the salesperson who has the most experience as there are a number of forms to fill out.

The financing just has to be set up. You can pay cash of course or BMW can finance. I did mine through my credit union. Leasing is also an option. Basically you will end up making 2-3 payments before your car arrives in the US.<p><i>: : It's really very easy to do.
