Those are some very fun places and a lot of them at that. How long were you there for the ED? I spent 3 years in Germany and loved traveling around Europe.

I'm going to bet a call soon as well. I'm almost to 18K. I drive almost 1000 miles a week for work. It really doesn't bother me because I'm enjoying the heck out of my every mile.

I spent 20 days over there, and can't wait to go back. Wow you are very lucky! Since I've come back, I have been trying to figure out ways I can move to Europe. What are some of your favorite destinations in Europe?

Slovenia in the Lake Bled area is very nice. I absolutely can't get enough of the Amalfi Coast. I really liked the area of Tuscany that we went to. We stayed in a villa in Signa. It was about a 20 minute ride on the train to Florence. I really had a great time in Krakow, Poland. we stayed in an apartment in the Jewish district.

13.5k miles here;l I've owned it since June. My lease is for thirty...Seriously considering buying it after the lease. Although I'll probably drive my Porsche more in the summer once I fix it.

We drove through Slovenia. The scenery was gorgeous. Sounds like you did ED the right way lol. I have been wanting to go to all these major cities for so long so I couldn't pass it up. Next time I do an ED I will be checking out small towns and back roads mostly. Good to know Krakow was good, because that's high on my list.

I will be keeping this one for the long haul and it may just end up in the hands of my teenager when he deserves it one day in the future. Or I may just keep it for the daily when I buy that new Alpha sedan I have my eye on. After all, it's not called the Ultimate sit in the garage machine now is it?

Prost!!!
I have 32k miles on my 2014 M235i. I did a euro delivery in March 2014 with redelivery in May 2014. I have one or two other cars I can drive, but it is hard for me to pass up taking the M235i nearly every time. The first summer I had this car I did not even use one full tank of gas in my convertible summer car!

This is one of the few cars I take every chance I can get to drive.

This car only has 1 problem... It provokes me to take every corner like a mad man, and always wants me to go faster.

I think you have the highest miles in the shortest amount of time. Employment change?

So I'm reviving this thread. I just hit 50k miles in my 228. Still commuting 2k miles per month for work. I just switched over to Castro Euro blend EDGE 0W-40 since I am out of warranty. I also installed the JB Stage 1, a WiFi OBDII dongle and the DashCommand app on my iPhone. All stock other than that. Anyone else getting up there?
