As long as you're calling them for your own information also. I don't want you to go spending any money just for my benefit. (I don't know how expensive or otherwise calls are there)

It's not until early July.

Thanks.

The BMW website says 300 km, which is about 186 miles. But if it's only 100 to 120, I'd be cutting it fine distance wise. I might need to look at a conventionally powered vehicle.
