Auf Wiedersehen

17 posts in this topic

Two days from now I'm heading to Germany for vacation. I'll also be inspecting the house being built. Construction is scheduled to be complete in mid-December. If the American electorate gives me the birthday gift I want this time around, I'll be staying till at least January 20th. If not, I'll be leaving anytime after the 1st of the year.

PCS, if you're in Frankfurt, be sure to wave as my ICE rushes by you on Thursday morning.

Not at all.

Sitting outside an eating establishment while in grad school having a burger with an Austrian MBA student, the (above, per German description) walks by on the sidewalk across the street.

Me: How would you describe THAT in German?

Johannes (with typical Germanic matter-of-factness): Eine gros schwarze frau.

That's the first thing I learned in German. Great for a belly laugh...or getting punched in the mouth.

Is it even being built yet?

I've been shopping the used car sites over there and it seems that the E-class, 5-series, A8, and 7-series all have Lincoln Towncar like depreciation rates. I may just get one of those and save myself the money. The CTS-D may be nice, but if I can snag a low mileage 7-series <the only BMW I like> for half the price or less, I'll do it.

Get a 750i in Black. How about the Phaeton with Diesel or W12?

Whatever I get will be a diesel, that much is certain. The whole point of buying a car over there is to go on long distance road trips, usually to the Provance and such. I want the most fuel efficient vehicle in the size class I'm shopping in.

I say 7-Series, but A8 TDIs are cool!

The CTS-D should arrive sometime during 2009.
