Although it's still massively inconvenient.
Perhaps there was a time when you saw a BMW order form and wondered exactly what the “European delivery” option was. Were people really so impatient that they couldn't wait for the car to be shipped to their local dealer and felt compelled to go and get it themselves? Well, that is sort of the case, but as the following video from BMW Canada explains, there's quite a bit more to it than that. Although it does in fact mean picking it up yourself from Munich.
The pricing of this option might look strange, as you will often end up paying less for the car initially. This is actually because it will then be on you to get it home and also pay the import taxes.
