    Haven't been to that one yet.

    Just went to the one downtown last week, did one of the simulators with the kids. It was so-so.

    I'd recommend the I Max film instead.

    I haven't been there yet either, but Mod Bob recommends it highly (he loves just going to airports like Dulles and watching the planes land anyway, so he'd probably pay to park just to do that, lol).

    Circuit City has the XM Roady/Roady2 Home Kit for ~$12 plus tax/shipping (may be able to pick it up in-store for free). Usual price is ~$30.

    I'm sure it would be easily worth the $12 parking fee. :shades:

    Not a good sign, the site is slow and the link to the Premiere site isn't working. :D

    Inside Line (that's us!) is giving away a trip to Frankfurt to see the auto show and drive a Saturn Astra around for a few days. You have to write an essay to enter, and then you get to blog about your trip on Inside Line.

    Audi Driving Experience Program

    Limited US cities and dates. There's a free 2 hour program and an enthusiast's program for $595. That's a half day on the track with some pros.

    Bummer, nowhere close to DC. NY is the closest for me.

    I would have only done the 2 hour deal, though. For $600 I want Bondurant or some indy school, not a school from a manufacturer.

    50% off All Rubber and Carpet Auto Floor Mats (on sale $3.99-$12.99 per set) at Sears stores Sat. 8/18 from 9 to 12 noon.

    Mechanics gloves, 104PC Tool Set and electric blower (air dry your car after washing?) also on sale.

    No link - details from a Fatwallet post. May want to call your local store first.

    $600 for two hours? HA!

    A 3-day school at Summit Point costs that... or less. I think the 2 day schools at Pocono are $350 and it's $450 for a 2 day at Watkins Glen.

    Lime Rock is $600 for 2 days...

    www.bmwcca.org Join. You don't need to own a BMW, you DO need to own a car that's track-appropriate (No Fleetwood Broughams, SUVs, Pickups, etc. You need to have your car teched before the school.. so fresh pads and brake fluid and a suspension in good shape).

    No convertibles either, unless they have roll bars. Loaner helmets exist but you really want your own.

    Don't you have a Protege? That's fine for a driver's school.
  • steverstever Viva Las CrucesPosts: 41,919
    I think it was a 2 hour "intro" for free, and the driving course was a half day. So that's only ~$150 an hour. And they probably spring for lunch. :blush:

    If they're smart, they'll surprise you with a $500 coupon towards a new Audi at the end of the school.

    Nope, a Miata and a minivan. No roll bar on the Miata so technically neither of my cars are appropriate for the track.

    I could borrow the wife's wagon! :D
  • im_brentwoodim_brentwood Posts: 4,883
    I think NASA or PDA will let Miatas on the track.. you have to sign a waiver tho.

    And then there's always AutoXing.

    With 2 kids I haven't really had the time. It's a hobby that I can't (yet) enjoy with them. So I'm saving it for when they get a bit older and can enjoy it with me.

    The link worked, I meant that the results of my attempt to win a coffee resulted in the "Try Again" response from VW. :)

    lol, gotcha - that's what I get for reading posts with just two cuppa's in me.

    ok, now Steve, this is one of those things that nobody else is interested in ... except me and you. So instead of posting this on the public forums for everyone to read, I'd like you to e-mail me similar sweeps personally from now on. K?

    Ok, but if I email you the contest, and you win, you gotta send me in your place. :D

    You gotta watch, right? And call at a certain time?

    That's lame. So to win this super-active-family vehicle you have to be a...couch potato! :D

    I haven't watched TV for 7 years now, so I didn't bother to drill down and read the rules. I get plenty of tatering sitting in front of my computer all day. :shades:
