I would be interested in the M School at the VIR - if you guys decide to do another trip later. I've been to regular M school (twice), a 2 day Porsche racing school in Alabama and a BMW M school at the 'Ring. All of these schools have been first class... I am sure everyone will have a blast! Enjoy your trip!

One of the best "mods" I can invest in to increase the performance of my car is improving the link between the pedals and the stealing wheel! I'm checking the dates against my schedule and will try and make this work.

Fifth Gear did a 10 minute bit on this - same car, same driver, same track. They tried various mods one at a time (chip, exhaust, CAI I think etc.) and then lessons. The time improvement from the stock car with lessons blew away the time improvement from any mod.

I figured that time frame would be feasible for me because I'll be in my last seminar in Grad School winding down and getting ready to graduate. I'll be flying in on the 4th into Charlotte, so lets coordinate plane flights so we can share a rental car together. My parents live in Greensboro, NC and will be coming down to pick me up on the night of the 6th, which will be nice cause I get to celebrate my birthday with them on the 7th, and I haven't been able to do that in about 7 years. Lol!

Can't wait!

Sweet! I am likely flying into Charlotte too, as is Barry. I'll get an offline email thread going for travel. Anyone else heading from the West Coast or arriving into Charlotte PM me you email address and I'll add you to the thread.

I am bummed. Called earlier today and no spots left
I therefore switched to the VIR program end of April. I would do both if I could; really wanted to make the ED reunion.

Anybody here signed up for VIR end of April?

Maybe you could appeal to them given the special nature of this one?

I agree. Think that any of the folks we met in Spain from ///M could help us out here? We've spent some serious $ on these events and cars

EDIT...sent a message to a couple of the M folks, asking for some assistance with this one. Let's see what happens.

Stay tuned Glenn....

Do you guys know if we get a discount for M school by doing ED on a M car? I heard that somewhere, but cannot recall where.

Nope. You get a 15% discount if you are a bmwcca member though.

Perfect the more ED'ers the better

I spoke to the Performance Center today and they are "working on it" and will get back to me. Stay tuned........

For those who called too late (Glenn) get your name on the waiting list as there is a chance to still get in if there is a cancelation, which does happen.

They CANNOT increase the class size for us based on # of M cars. (who would want to get stuck in the Mini)

This is going to be a blast. Maybe BMW TV will have to do a follow up piece...

Good work Glenn!
Triple crown for you and I with the F10
Seville
Munich
Spartanburg.

Have spoken to the Performance Ctr 2x. Still working on a Board Special.....

Everyone here still in, I'm assuming? Which means at least 11/15 of us are from this post.

Damn!!! Do we get a set of steak knives for two of the three? Heck, I even got Munich in, a week after you 9/1 ED'ers.

It'll be good to see you again Glenn! Glad you got a spot!
