Things to do in Munich while you're waiting for your BMW...

Visit BMW Niederlassung München - this is the main BMW dealership in town - must see for cars and BMW boutique, Frankfurter Ring 35, München

Go to Wal-Mart Supercenter to stock up on supplies, snacks and refreshments (near BMW)

Go to Olympia-Einkaufszentrum shopping center at Olympic center - good for quick lunch (awesome wurst!) and shopping. Hanauer Straße 68, München

Walk around Old Town Munich: Marienplatz, Rathaus, Hofbrauhaus, and Kaufingerstrasse pedestrian shopping street . Another great street to walk in Old Town is Maximilianstrasse, Munich's version of Rodeo Drive.
