Meet Your BMW Where it was Made

The BMW European Delivery Program lets you meet your vehicle where it was made. Travel to Munich and experience the BMW Welt (“BMW World”), tour the BMW Museum and drive the world-famous Autobahn. 
The first step in this fantastic journey is to use the “Build Your Own” online tool to completely customize your vehicle. Then order your new BMW through your local dealership for delivery via the European Delivery Program. Customers can save up to seven percent of the base Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) when they take advantage of this program. Next, plan your trip. Fly Lufthansa round-trip from the U.S. to Munich, and a companion flies for free (excluding taxes and fees). 
In Munich, pick up your vehicle at the BMW Welt where all aspects of the BMW brand come to life through exhibits and the delivery center. Younger travelers will enjoy exploring the Junior Campus, which is sure to capture both their imaginations and curiosity. Customers get to tour the BMW factory and museum, located across from the BMW Welt in the heart of Munich. 
Then the real fun begins. Get behind the wheel of your new BMW and drive the Autobahn while enjoying Europe’s majestic mountains*. Experience the beauty and history of Germany, Austria, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Italy and more. Follow one of five pre-arranged itineraries – such as “Lakeside Luxury,” “Spa Sport & Drive,” “The Black Forest,” “The Castle Road” and “Castles & Mozart” – or create your own adventure. Explore European cities such as Munich, Berlin, Zurich, Interlaken, Milan, Prague and Vienna and enjoy VIP treatment at luxurious hotels and spas along the way.
When your unforgettable vacation comes to an end, return your BMW to any of the 12 drop-off locations in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland or Belgium. The cost of transporting your car, customs clearance and duty and marine insurance are included in the purchase price of your vehicle.
All vehicles in the European Delivery Program depart for the U.S. from Bremerhaven, Germany. It typically takes 6 to 8 weeks for cars to be shipped to the East Coast and 8 to 10 weeks to reach the West Coast. Cars that are returned at drop-off locations outside of Germany will take longer to reach the U.S.
The European Delivery Program offers the chance of a lifetime to visit Europe and to meet your new BMW in the very place it was born. Around 15,000 new BMW vehicles are delivered in this manner to happy owners from around the world every year. Pick up your new BMW in Europe and embark on a journey you will never forget. The Ultimate Driving Machine® deserves the ultimate beginning.
