Not everyone gets it.

After several M's... I'm still yet to get any.

Seemingly random.
PC staff told me that a lot of people are getting the 1 day driving school voucher, including non M owners. It's a gift from BMWFS.

Do you lease or finance?
Finance them all.

That's why. BMWFS lease = 1 day driving school voucher as per PC staff last week.

This is awesome. Can they sweeten the deal and allow you to drive an actual performance oriented BMW from 10+ years ago?

When I was at the 2-day M-School this past Oct. the instructors said that wearing a helmet with their vehicles was less safe than without them.

This was policy earlier this year too. When I booked this past Summer I asked about combining the UDE 20%, the BMW CCA 15%, and car control school credit, and they said you can't combine the BMW CCA discount with the other % off discounts.

This is correct, the BMW Driving Experience in Germany doesn't require helmets. The prototypes vehicles driving around don't have airbags installed when the driver is wearing a helmet. My gut feeling is when the PC did the Nuremberg event recently, they were told of the safety issues of using helmets in vehicles with airbags.

Can the discount be applied on line when you register or do you have to call?

Just called. No stack for BMWCCA or BMW Credit card.

Girl sounded as if she had answered the question 15,000 times.

Most people that buy Ms get credit worth the one day M school...weird you've never gotten any freebies.

I believe you have to lease an M to get one.

FYI - Got the M Driver's Package with my M2 (seriously wished I wasn't forced to take it - what a ripoff)...I tried to use the BMWCCA discount on 1-Day M School (which is $1550) but they took 15% off the balance of the voucher (it was only worth $1500 apparently - the M Driver's Program is different than the 1 Day M-School) and the 1 Day M School - so I owed $50 minus 15% :jerk off motion:

This is after spending $2500 on the M Driver's Package :further jerk off motion:


The school is great though...you really get to drive the shit out of the cars. Wish I could have done the 2-day school but it just wasn't worth the upgrade costs

Why were you forced to take it? Why didn't you tell them 'No'?
