Thatís exactly what I thought. ED was dying and COVID just provided the final nail in the coffin.

BMWCCA is presently working to see if they can get ED for the club.
They are? I wasnít aware. Do they need member support for this?

Nope...those of us left are grasping at straws and possibly trying to delay until October. One has successfully delayed and others (including me) are trying to sort it out.

I think someone on the 8er forums was the last US customer to do ED.

Waiting on a response there as to how he/she got in. One user for sure has an M5C scheduled for October 29...probably the latest at this point.

I contacted the BMW CCA of NA with my "concerns" about ED cancellation. I was told they are trying to work it out with BMW NA to possibly allow members to continue to enjoy ED on some level. Basically he said NA didn't tell them to F'off so there is some hope.

Even if ED was available I'm not so sure they are going to offer anything in a year and half (lease end) that I want to buy/lease. Sad and unexpected.

It's a very complex situation. The primary problem was too few people were actually using their cars for tourist purpose after Welt Delivery.

I think ED is dead. My plan once I can fly from the states to Europe, is to rent an M or other nice car from Sixt and go play in the Alps. My usual twice a year vacation.

Yup. I understand all the complexities.

People doing 75 Euro airport drop offs, Americans wanting huge SUVs (my wife is part of the problem), ED numbers down the last few years (BMW NA is partly to blame here with removal of "incentives"), etc. Producing the next 2er and M2 in Mexico isn't going to help.

At the end of the day BMW was a special brand that offered an amazing experience for their customers. This is no longer the case. I'm sad and angered by it. The loss of ED and the beaver grills could very well have our entire family leave the brand.

Found out that user has dual citizenship so he was able to get into Germany.

Probably gave up maybe $10k in rebates and incentives on the bloated 8-series to take ED.

At this point, is it worth it to pick up a preowned M8 vs. G80 M3 🤔
