what happens at a drive for team usa event?

Hi everyone,

What happens at a drive for team usa event? Feel free to talk about your personal experience and any freebies you've gotten. Is the 1k code applicable at a different dealership and what's the duration of the 1k discount? Thanks!

Honestly, I cannot remember details. However, I do remember that if you DO receive invitation (you cannot register without it IIRC), it tells you more or less everything on it. The rest (cars available) it will show up on bmwusa page when you register. I do believe the credit is usable wherever, not just the dealer where you participated physically. Which would make sense, all man-and-women-power was provided by BMWNA, not the dealer. Even cars. So ...

The $1k discount is fairly perishable, only good for a few months. I recall that it wasn't available in addition to my USAA or BMWCCA discounts. Read the fine print. They've stopped putting M's in the fleet. I drove an E46 M3 at one of these events in 2001, while waiting for mine... mind boggling.

They set up a course, maybe six or seven miles of twisty roads. These events are run by BMWNA staff (usually marketing interns), so there's no pressure from salesmen to buy a car that day. You get a tote bag, and maybe a insulated coffee mug or something.

These events are a great place to meet chicks, too. I was getting service one day and the dealer was hosting one of these events about ten years ago. I wanted to drive an E60 5-series with SMG II (not impressed with SMG II). As I was parking the car, there was a very attractive woman, late 30's, early 40's waiting to take the car out next. She asked me if I liked it, and then asked me if I was going to buy one. I said "I already have one."

She said "Oh!" and smiled. It's not often I get to make a late 30's, early 40's attractive women say "Oh!"
