Bondurant (or similar) School vs. PCD

Really struggled which forum to post this in, hopefully this is close enough...

Doing an ED this year but I live way out in Phoenix so Performance Center redelivery isn't really convenient. I will have some extra vacation time, though, after we get back so I was considering hitting up the Bondurant High Performance Driving school to learn some advanced techniques.

First question would be -- has anybody been to something like Bondurant and, if so, was it worth it? The classes are dang expensive so I'd love to hear some positive feedback. What did they teach you, how you enjoyed it, etc.

Second -- for anybody who's been through PCD or knows much about it, do you have any idea how to compare it to Bondurant? My ED this year hopefully won't be my last BMW, so there's a good chance I'll get a chance to hit PCD one of these days in the next decade or so. If they train many of the same skills, I might just pass on Bondurant.

Appreciate any thoughts.

Performance Center Delivery will be about 2% of a full-on school.

It's more geared toward showing you what your car is capable of, rather than teaching you advanced techniques.
