Signed up for the autocross which I've never done so I'm excited to check it out. Maybe next time I'll do the M driving school.

these events are paid for by local area dealers.. One dealer can pay or all the dealers in a market area can join in.

Go see your General manager.

having visited the area a few times for BMW CCA events.. methinks Schomp has been running a lot of customer centric events themselves.. and perhaps Co's as well... You certainly have plenty of area dealers, but they are spread out, and they don't seem to be inclined to work together to bring this to the area.

After nearly every BMW UDE - type, or even Susan G Komen/Jump into Spring/ Fall Holiday Drive type Test drive event I have attended, I received a discount coupon for $1000 off a new vehicle purchase shortly afterwards.

Explains a lot - thanks. I'll skip my visit to the GM here, it's one of the reasons my two recent purchases were done out of state.

Anyone know if you can get 15% off the control clinic if you're a CCA member? It's usually 15% all the classes at the performance centers but idk if it still applies to UDE control clinic
