They can participate in the driving as long as their driver's license hasn't expired. In order to take delivery of a vehicle, you'll have to have a valid US driver's license.

Look forward to meeting you on 5/23

Thanks Jonathon. I have a valid US driver's license for pick up

I see that you have been very active on the forums replying to everyone's questions. A lot of my questions were answered by just reading some thread. Thanks a lot for your support

The Performance Center staff are great. They helped me work through very complicated Delivery schedules to do an X3 35i delivery. One party came from Maryland, the Dad came from LaJolla and PCD staff helped them with attention and fun. THANKS Ginger!!! MY plan is to do an M3 PCD Delivery someday, crank around the track in a PCD M3 and drive my pristine new M3 from South Carolina to Northern California.

Irish,

There was a young couple going back to California in a M3 when my son and I got my 128i vert. The wife helpled make the day special. She loved the 360s and the hot laps. I hope you get the chance to do the same.

Jim

Hey Sanename:

We enjoyed sharing the track with you on the 23rd (we were in the 750). I'm sure your brother was a little disoriented driving on the wrong side of the skid pad. Don't forget about European Delivery. That, followed up by PC Delivery, is the best way to enjoy the BMW experience.

Cheers!

Scooter 645

hey scooter 645,
it was our pleasure as well to share the track with you guys!!!!! yeah it took him a while to get the hang of the other side.....

PCD was definitely an amazing experience and after listening to your guys experience about the EU delivery will definitely do it for the next BMW.......my brother is considering a 1 series so might be able to experience the EU delivery for his car soon....

how was the long ride back home?
