The Un4gettable Test Drive Experience allows drivers to test drive the all new BMW 4 Series.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – May 20, 2014…
BMW today launched the BMW Un4gettable Test Drive Experience, which allows drivers to test drive the all new BMW 4 Series at 324 BMW centers nationwide. The Un4gettable Test Drive Experience runs from May to October 2014. Drivers will have the opportunity to test drive the following 4 Series vehicles: BMW 428i Convertible, BMW 428i Coupe, BMW 435i Convertible and BMW 435i Coupe.

"Getting people behind the wheel of our vehicles is the most powerful marketing tool we have. We are excited to give people across the country the opportunity to experience the all new BMW 4 Series," said Trudy Hardy, Vice President, Marketing, BMW of North America.

To find out when the BMW Un4gettable Test Drive Experience is coming to a BMW center near you and to register, please visit: https://www.bmwusa.com/secured/conte...testdrive.aspx.


The new BMW 4 Series Convertible and Coupe will be offered in the U.S. as both a 428i, featuring BMW’s award-winning TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter 4-cylinder and as a 435i with the multi-award winning TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter inline six. Both the 428i and 435i Convertible will feature a standard 8-speed sport automatic transmission. The 428i and 435i Coupe will be available with a standard 8-speed sport automatic or six-speed manual transmission. The 428i Convertible will be offered with a choice of rear-wheel drive or with optional xDrive, BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system, while the 435i Convertible will be available with rear wheel drive. The 428i and 435i Coupe will also be offered with a choice of rear-wheel drive or with optional xDrive.

The 2014 BMW 428i Convertible will have a base MSRP of $49,675 and the 2014 BMW 435i Convertible will have a starting price of $55,825. Both prices include destination and handling. The 2014 BMW 428i Coupe will have a base MSRP of $41,425, and the 2014 BMW 435i Coupe will have a starting price of $46,925. Both prices include destination and handling.

TL;DR - this is essentially an "Ultimate Drive Event" - sign up, stop by, and get $1,000 toward the the lease/purchase of a new Bimmer within 60 days of the event.

**Doesn't mention in the description, but mail flyer mentions $1k toward purchase/lease within 60 days of the event.**

Too bad we cannot use it for cars already ordered and/or ED (just like previous Drive Events). An extra $1k off on my M4 would have been a nice surprise...

I have a 428i on order for my mom. I can sign her up and have her do this and she will receive the $1k off on top of the negotiated price and $1k option credit?

Not sure who your Sales Rep is, but mine is being added to my car which was just delivered and I'm going tomorrow to the event to collect my voucher...

I'm actually taking advantage of the 1000 Options Credit and the 1000 Drive Event Credit.

The offer is only good for 60 days from the date you attend the UDE and not valid for vehicles ordered or delivered prior the UDE date. The $1000 will be used as a rebate, not discount on the vehicle.

So is it possible to combine this rebate with, lets say, the recent graduate or the option credit being offered on BMWNA site?
I'm still debating between a 2014 or MY2015 428i M-Sport, if i can combine those 3 rebates a 2014 would probably be my best bet!!

You should be able to use all three. To help your negotiation, mention the three discounts after you say you want to buy the car at invoice....

Just sharing my experience. If they had told me no, I would cancel the order and reorder, my car is in the lot anyways.

I go to the link, all the times slots say "open", yet when I complete step 3 I get an error

"Web Service Runtime Error: Timeslot has been filled."



Edit: Today it worked.

I received an invite from my dealer via email a few days ago and I jumped on the chance. I've never been to one of these events before, so I am really interested in the experience. I chose the 435 convertible since I already test drove and ordered a 435xi coupe. Who knows, the convertible model could be my next car after I turn in the 435xi in three years.

I was hoping to schedule a 428 to see how the 2.0 turbo does in the coupe, but it appears you can only select one car/time slot.

I was also excited about the $1,000 toward the purchase of a BMW, but my excitement was crushed after reading that it can't be applied to cars ordered before the event. I ordered mine on May 2nd, so that takes care of that.

Anyway, I am really looking forward to the event. Now I just need to get the day off work.
