Exclamation Reminder: BMW CCA Membership Drive - time to join!

If you aren´t already a member, it´s time to join. The BMW Car Club of America provides a variety of benefits and activities - everything from the Roundel magazine to autocrosses and driving schools at places like Lime Rock and Watkins Glen race tracks.

You can join at the Club´s Web site - if you want, you can use my membership number as referrer (36024).

Other benefits:

Technical Service Advisors provide assistance to members confronted with technical questions. The TSA's have years and years of background and experience in the care, maintenance, and repair of BMWs and many own or manage independent shops. The Club Ombudsmen serve as intermediaries for members unable to resolve problems with manufacturers, dealers, repair shops, parts suppliers, and others.
The Club Library, located in the National Office, offers a range of BMW-related information in a variety of media--all available by e-mailing or calling the National Office.
Many BMW dealerships and Independents offer discounts on parts and service to BMW CCA members.

I did it for two reasons:

Rebate each time I lease a new bimmer
10% parts discount

Don't read the mag (it ends up in recycling, plastic still on it) and I've only done one BMWCCA event - 2 days at buttonwillow. Fun and educational but in the end not as much fun as simply driving on open backroads.

I just signed up for year 4: plan another BMW purchase in year 5 so that rebate will be handy again.

Keep those cards and letters coming folks - but seriously, if you aren't a member, join. If you are, participate!

If you are in the NY NJ metro area, there is a great event on Friday. A BMW NA open house at BMW hq. Starts at 6 p.m. Friday.

If you haven't joined the BMW CCA yet, this is one of the many reasons why you should. Join at the BMW CCA Web site and if you want, use my membership number as referrer (the brownie points can't hurt I guess).

Reminder - the BMW CCA Membership Drive runs through mid July.

Join now at http://www.bmwcca.org - if you want, use my membership number (36024) as referrer.

In addition to club events, and a year´s subscription to the Roundel, you become eligible for the Member Reward program, a check from BMW of North America for $500-$1500 (depends on model) when you buy or lease a new or CPO BMW. All that for $40.

They can join. I´ve gotten a few people I know in Canada to join. Some do just for the magazine alone.

Out of curiosity, what compensation do you receive for being the referring member for these people who sign up as part of this membership drive?

I think for every X number of people, I get an additional month or something like that of membership - not a big deal. I am a former chapter board member and I think that the club presents a great opportunity to share about BMWs beyond discussion forums such as Bfest by driving and meeting (including excellent drivering schools and autocrosses).

I was just curious. I still used you as the referring member, and signed my wife and I up this morning.
