    No swag (apparently) this time, but " For every participant who test drives a vehicle at the event, BMW will make a donation to the U.S. Olympic Team."

    If you are interested in buying a BMW, you should definitely sign up. Participants are given a $1000 rebate certificate on a new BMW (expires within a few months).

    Had me for a second. I couldn't figure out the angle, so I had to read the fine print.

    The pre-calculated interest in advance amount $61,294.00 based on the 1.20% APY available through May 31, 2012 can only be used towards the purchase of one of four (4) specific Mercedes Benz vehicle models from Crown Eurocars Inc. with a MSRP of $59,585.00 and includes $3,488.34 sales tax, $687.70 delivery fee, $2.50 Florida Lemon Law fee, $6.50 Florida tire and battery fee, $500.00 registration/tag and $24.00 electronic filing fee with a total purchase price, net of $3,000.00 discount, of $61,294.04.

    Someone over at FatWallet calculated the interest generated at another bank would pay for the Mercedes in ~5 years. Not a great rate of return on your million with this deal. Good hook to grab your eyeballs though. :shades:

    I signed up, mostly to sample the new 4 banger turbos from Germany (BMW and the Benz C240 also).

    Wow, that's a lot sooner.

    At the rate BMW updates engines, we may be driving different cars. :D

    Just remember the time you are scheduled for starts with a product review.
    You get to drive about 20 minutes after that.

    The better events tend to be in large parking lots. This is at a dealership so I don't expect too much, but I'm in for the show if they have one.

    The last BMW one I attended (in Baltimore at the Ravens parking lot) was a mini-autocross course. Neat.
  • kyfdxkyfdx Posts: 29,850
    I'm pretty sure.. that wherever it is... I'm driving the crap out of those cars.. :)

    The Drive for the Cure that they used to do... was on public roads... I always made it a point to never exceed 110 mph..

    These are public road events. I'll see if I can find out if there are any closed course venues.

    I admire your discipline. :D

    I suspect this event will be on public roads. :cry:

    All the events are on public roads.
    Not to surprising considering every dealership is going to get a visit.

    At Oktoberfest 1989 in Keystone CO BMW offered test drives to CCA members. The test route was from the hotel to the top of Loveland Pass and back. Myself and a Roundel columnist(who shall remain nameless) would take cars out at the same time and see who could get to the top and back down in the shortest amount of time. After the third run our spouses refused to ride with us. Funny thing; we never had a really scary moment even though we had a reputation for burning up the test route. On the last test session of the last day a new E30 M3 was totaled, and everyone thought we were the culprits, but we were innocent.
    For once.

    Yesterday Chevy was at this theme park and handed out T-shirts for anyone who signed up for their mailing lists. It's white with an old school Chevy logo on it.

    Just a heads up for anyone else who sees a Chevy stand around anywhere else. All 4 of us got one.
