We got the same package last week. It's not the same remote-shaped 8GB USB stick that BMW sells, it's a mini-remote 2GB USB in a metal case that has a app that autoruns and contains some video and a link to the BMW website. The President of our local BMW dealer also "signed" the letter so it's coordinated with them. I would have been more impressed if this had arrived within a few weeks of ordering our car.

Anyone know if you can track this in the owner's circle until it arrives? Juuust kidding. If I get one, I wonder if I can crack it open and replace the chip with a 64GB one.

This thing is literally solid metal. It's actually feels quite heavy for its size, 1-3/8 oz. There are no seams or screws and it looks like the USB part is encased in metal and then pressed into the metal case. There's probably a bit of glue/epoxy holding it in. It doesn't pull out easily and I'm not going to break it trying!

When I purchased my CPO, my salesman sent me 2 BMW travel mugs and a thermos. Was not expecting that at all.

The fact that people are stating that this USB gift that Bmw gives out to their customers is pretty heavy means that they are of good quality.

When I bought mine, my saleperson gave me a $35 gift certificate for their "Gift Shop" as my son calls the dealers "Lifestyle Boutique"... (I prefer my son's terminology... )

Anyway, was able to pick up a hat and a key fob cover... didn't need anymore coffee mugs...

I received the pen as my gift on the second anniversary. I never did get a 1 year anniversary present but the pen is pretty neat. Likely cost more than I'd ever spend on a pen, though the last one I (my parents) actually bought dates back to middle school.

Came in the same type of box your USB drive came in. Won't sway me to buy another BMW in the future but it's a nice touch that they keep in touch. I wonder how long this type of marketing lasts on a customer between purchases.

LOL. I was going to remark, just wait till the anniversary gifts start arriving.

Year 1: A print of the original concept drawing watercolor artwork of the purchased car i.e. mine is an E93 (suitable for framing) Nice! (see LarkHouston's avatar for the E92 variant)
Year 2: A very nice pen. See CWinters description. "the case is of the same carbon fiber used on the M3".

I love the pen.

I'm wondering when they get tired of sending anniversary gifts.

I got excited for a moment when mine arrived. Thought it might activate a hidden 'CA' option that I DIDN'T GET on my car. Nope. Did anyone else get a Jimi Hendrix album on their 'stick'?

Whoa! You got Jimi Hendrix? I just got a set of CD's with Chris Bangle informercials.

The 'good stuff' started showing up a year later.
