Been There Done That

Drove four different BMW's when it was near me. Good deal and a good cause.

Why oh why did you have to provide the pink ribbon gear link?

I want the clutch, the handbag, the gym bag, and the rollaboard!

Interesting - the invite a friend link doesn't work unless you use an email from someone who got the email originally.

This is a yearly event that BMW has been doing for the last 12-13 years - I've been doing it since the beginning (the neatest thing was that I saw my signature on the "signature car" at the LA car show after the first year). It's a really fun event that also generates money for a worthwhile charity.

Even if you can't sign up and reseve a car, just find out when the event is at a dealer convenient to you. You can just show up, register, and drive since there are no-shows on the reservation and the reservations are hourly while the road course is only about 20 min. Of course, the "hot" cars will have a waiting list for times etc.

So,

1) Minimum age to drive? 18 or 25 (like most rental car companies)?
2) Is the 7-series considered "hot"?

Thanks and I look forward to doing it next year!

Ditto. Saw a few items I might have to purchase. Next year I'll have to do the drive.

Cheers.

Minimum age is 21, I believe. (I was 23 when I participated back in May)..and it was a BLAST. I'm a huge fan of BMWs, so I was in hog-heaven. My favorite was actually the 135i...such a light, quick car. Also drove the 335i and Z4. Minimum age to drive the M3, Alpina 7, and I think the 6 series was 28 (I believe, or maybe 30..?). Don't quote me on that. All I knew was that I was too young to drive the M3. But still got a ride in the front seat, woot!
