Remembering what an awesome time we had visiting the factory in Buchloe and touring the local area.. I hope something similar can be organised again soon. I know that factory tours are off the agenda for now, but a road trip to Bavaria sounds perfect... here's a link showing the itenary from that trip Smile

Sounds like it was a good trip!

And you stayed at the hotel I always stayed at when I visited the ring!

Wow 10 years ago. Seems like yesterday. It was a good trip.

Enjoyed the BMW classic, and the BMW factory tour the most.

I think you will find this is no longer possible, this is due to research and development work being carried out by ALPINA for BMW and may not relate specifically to the ALPINA models you have bought previously or can currently.

I visited in 2015 for the 50th anniversary and I believe visits ceased shortly after that?

No doubt someone will post up if incorrect.
