European Delivery Program Overview

Your BMW from "Start to Finish" - Get the grandeur of a European vacation and the pride of BMW ownership

When you buy a BMW at BMW of Riverside and elect for BMW's exclusive European Delivery Program, you can combine the experience of a fabulous European vacation and getting into your very own BMW into one. Essentially, it's two spectacular life experiences in rolled into one. With the program you get to:

  • Drive the Ultimate Driving Machine where you can truly stretch its legs: the Autobahn
  • A European tour
  • Substantial savings on your brand new BMW
  • The best possible European vacation souvenir - your very own new BMW

Processing a European Delivery for your car or crossover for delivery in Europe is much easier than you may think. We've made it as easy as these four steps:

  • Reserve your new BMW
  • Purchase Order
  • Vehicle Delivery at the world-famous BMW Welt / Drop-Off
  • Vehicle Re-Delivery at BMW of Riverside

Pick Up During Winter Months

Germany recently passed a law that requires drivers to equip their vehicles according to inclement weather due to dangerous conditions including snow and ice. This means for BMW of Riverside customers that your BMW must be equipped with All-Season Tires (AKA M+S tires) or Snow Tires. There might even be some street sections in Germany where snow tires or even snow chains are declared mandatory.

This is most often the case near ski resorts and alpine passes. If a BMW of Riverside customer orders a vehicle with a Summer Performance tire, it is your (the customer's) responsibility to equip the vehicle appropriately for inclement weather according to German law. If you do not, you may be subject to violation of the law by the local authorities or be found to be grossly negligent according to the law. Other countries in Europe have similar laws.

When ordering a European delivery car - especially with a Summer Performance Tire option - please be aware and carefully review the options, packages, wheels and standard equipment with your BMW of Riverside representative. Depending on the BMW model and packages, wheel and tire options may change.

You may also have the option to leave your car or SUV at BMW Welt for shipment to the US if you prefer not to drive. There will be a fee of 60 Euros cash (no credit cards will be accepted), payable to BMW Welt, for transportation of the vehicle from BMW Welt to the Munich drop-off location.

The following website outlines a snow tire rental option as well as pricing and booking details in Germany. Please be advised that all cars must come back to Munich to have your original BMW tires put back on the car before shipment for final delivery at BMW of Riverside. Also note that snow tires are subject to availability.

Other Important Information

  • Fuel - All BMW European Delivery cars and SAVs are delivered with only a few liters of unleaded fuel. A full tank is not available because of the BMW Welt's fire code.
  • Warranty - Every US BMW is backed by the same new vehicle limited warranty of 4 years/ 50,000 miles; whichever comes first from the date of sale. Authorized BMW Centers in Europe will honor your US model warranty
  • BMW Full Maintenance Program - While in Europe, any maintenance repairs or services are the customer's responsibility since the Maintenance Program states repairs and maintenance must be performed by Authorized BMW Centers within the USA and Puerto Rico.

  • M Series - All M Series customers (not including M-Sport vehicles) that travel for more than 1,200 miles in Europe should have their vehicles serviced by an authorized European BMW dealership.
