F15 X5 Performance Center Delivery and Experience a dencoop story 11/22/2013

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hey guys,

I started my love affair with BMWs in 2005...actually way before then although that's when I actually ordered my first BMW. Since then I have done 3 European Deliveries and going onto my 15th Performance Center Delivery.

I will document this delivery via real time pictures and videos. Hope you enjoy...stay tunned.... Can't wait.....

Besides owning a slew of other BMWs throughout the years from when it all began in 2005...here are my previous 4 E70 X5s which were all picked up via the ///M Performance Driving School (PCD)


White X5


Blue X5


White X5





Black X5 PCD Pick Up Video





New F15 2014 X5 at the factory
(Thank to an undisclosed source for the pix!, can't wait to pick it up on Friday)


Stay tuned for more updates...I will update with real time pix/videos.

I will be shooting with my trusty iPhone 5, Canon 100S and Canon 1dX

Thanks for the nice words thus far....very excited, could not sleep till about 4AM last night...watching the typical YouTube videos on the F15...etc...

Feeling very pumped...we fly out of Newark NJ today around 9PM and arriving at the GSP airport at around 11PM.

Mike will be picking us up and driving us to the Greenville Marriotte...I always ask specifically for Mike as he is a very cool guy and will pretty much drive you anywhere your heart desires...very knowledgable about the surrounding areas as well if you decide you want to check out downtown or other places.




Let the Fun begin....here is my first video of the typical start to my day...









Ride to The Airport in a brand new 2014 ///M5 ZCP







At the Newark Liberty Airport







Plane Boarding






Just landed








Welcome to South Carolina....

Picked up in the New F15 xDrive50i

Wow this thing has so much presence in real life..."The Boss is Back"

^ Take your time but I will be waiting with anticipation. Did you get to PCD a week before your wife's availability time, or was that a bad idea? Wow so many wonderful deliveries, I guess the best way to remember them is to post them with a nice full documentary with pic's, thank you. If I recall you got all options, no stone left unturned.

WOW; you sure love your X5s. Not that it is any of my business; but did you have all 4 at once, meaning did you 'hoard' your X5s or swap them out for the new ones ; just curious

Man, the black E70 with the style 214's still looks so damn good. I had a black on black 4.8i back in '07. If my CA could have gotten the '13 I wanted (very few sports were left and no-one that had one would trade), I would've gotten another one and waited on the F15 till next round...

Man that brown x-line with the 20's is making me wish we did a dark color, and those 20's. Original plan was a black sapphire xline with the 20's. Hope I don't regret the mineral white m sport. It looks so sleek in the dark paint.

Denny,
Did any of your previous E70s come equipped with Adaptive Drive or will this new F15 be your first experience (I see from your build order you opted for DHP). I'm curious how much better the handling is

Never thought 20" s would make such difference. Awesome looks.

Dencoop- when can guest switch to drive? Every activity is reappeared twice once for primary and second for guest?

That is correct, you and your guest get to do the same drives. Breaking, Skid Pad, Road Course, X5 off road course. The only thing we had to share was the M3 hot lap, but the instructor drove that with my wife in the front and me in the back. If you are the only one there, or your +1 does not want to, you get to drive twice as much.
