Last week was the day! After getting some cool sticker job our 2 X1 were ready for pick up. We got invited to Munich into the BMW World for the official hand-over fo the keys and some introduction of the cars. If you still think all one gets is 4 wheels, a steering wheel, gear shift, a motor and lights – well, trust us, these cars have way more under their hood than you think. Efficient Dynamics (so we are good to the environment as well), Dynamic Stability Control for those bumpy mountain roads), Hill Descent Control (for the way home), Tyre Puncture Warning system, GPS (so we actually find our way to the secret powder), automatic lights with follow-me-home function (awesome for pick-ups…), Bluetooth cell phone connection, climate control, 4 wheel drive, no gear shift but automatic (BMW thought since we are an Amerian company we are better off with automatic haha), on-board computer with online connection (yep you can surf the web with these cars), Ipod connection, roofbox for our snowboards and a lot of other nice gimmicks that make our boss jealous.

So after some posing for pics with the guys from BMW we also got an instruction how to utilize all those gadgets when on the road. So one thing is certain, we´ll never miss the first runs anymore as these cars almost drive on their own!
Where´s the motorway? (no speed limit in Germany…)
