Too bad it's not $100 gift card like before

Various M cars are on the list. I got the email, and signed up to test drive a M3! Though to be honest the 328xDrive Touring is what I'd get given my druthers.

I got that email too, I signed up to try out a 760LI. I got an email back from my local dealer a couple hours later and while they don't have a 760li on the lot, I do have a 750LI test drive scheduled for next week. Pretty efficient system I must say!

I didn't receive the e-mail so I guess I wasn't targeted . Too bad, since I'm actively car shopping right now, and it would have been great timing. I probably wouldn't have bought a BMW anyway (and I can't imagine I would even bother to go look at one without an offer like this), but you never know.

Got mine. Good timing as I'm actually car shopping for a January purchase and the X3 is on my list.

Might see you at the Grand River BMW since that's my "other" home base :-)
Sadly, we do it backwards - summer on the West Coast - Winter in Ontario.
Must have gotten knocked in the head a few times as a kid ...

BMW ran a similar promotion for Air Canada MLL customers this summer. I had the same experience. Registered for the promo and test drive. Heard nothing back. I emailed the dealer directly. Again, silence. Emailed again a couple weeks later. Still nothing. I never did hear from the local BMW dealer.

Maybe BMW Grand River reads this thread, I got a call yesterday (and voicemail), will call back to arrange a M3 test drive, and will honestly tell her I'm only there for the $100 credit :P

I sent in my request 3 days ago, and already got a call back from BMW Markham. Never expected such a quick response based on this thread and I'm in HNL right now!

I signed on for this a few days ago and received a voicemail from the BMW Gallery in Calgary yesterday so there certainly isn't an issue with the acknowledgement.

I have yet to schedule the test drive but, given that I am not in the market for a different vehicle, how open do you think the dealer would be to saving both their time and effort and mine and just processing the credit?

See if they have an i8. That should be worth your time.

Submitted yesterday during the day, the dealer called me back less than 5 minutes later saying he just got my contact info via e-mail. Will try to complete it this week. So they appear to get the e-mail immediately, any delays would be dealer based.

I completed a test drive (328xD) on Nov 6th, and still waiting to see how the credit appears.

Tested the 435 grand coupe last night. Beautiful car, dealer highly suggested I smash the gas pedal to the floor more than once. Guy had no idea what fairmont promotion was until I mentioned it. Don't think many people around here signed up for it.
