Back from Iraq and my f10 was waiting on me

So, I finally got out of the armpit of the Middle East and my f10 was waiting on me. Will post pics as soon as I get a little sleep and find my camera. It's Deep Sea Blue w/ Gray Dakota and aluminum trim. I know combo sounds simple but it looks really sharp!

Nice. DSB/Gray was my second color choice. It'll be nice to see how that combo looks. I ended up with DSB/Cinn Brown.

I'm guessing this is a euro delivery with US spec... Right? Or is it a regular purchase with US specs? How does that work when you work/live there? I guess being in service you get special arrangements to buy or bring back vehicles.

Thanks for your service!

Proud American abroad.

Yes, it's U.S. Specs but, not euro delivery. Those who serve in Germany get really good deals on bimmers. They are basically delivered to the nearest BMW dealership and we simply pick them up. BMW ships them back home for us when we leave to go back to the States for free. Also we pay no taxes and BMW gives us awesome discounts. So, in short I get to enjoy this car on the autobahn for a couple years then bring it back to the states where it is worth much more than i paid for it. One of the perks of we uniformed men and women.
