Invited to Drive the M3: Oct 1-4 2007

Received a UPS envelope from BMW today. It contained an invitation to "an ultimate driver's dream come true" . . . "three days of M3 immersion" at the Nurburgring Oct 1 - Oct 4.

Included:

:rocks: Two days of driving the new M3 on the GP course and its facilities, including lead-follow laps, car control, skidpad, and vehicle dynamics exercises.

:rocks: Visit the Nurburgring Experience Museum and go-kart race.

:rocks: Behind-the-scenes tours of the Grand Prix track and BMW's Nurburgring test facility, and M3 technology workshops.

:rocks: Hot lap the famous Nordschleife. :rocks: :rocks:

Accomodations: Three overnight stays in a single-occupancy room at the Nurburgring Dorint Hotel, including all meals and soft drinks.

Ground transportation from the major international airports to the Nurburgring.

Airfare is not included.

Cost: $5,500 per person.

Anyone else?

I thought the event in September was free (airfare not included). I have a feeling this October event is a different deal.

BMW M shld make this event standard when we buy our M3s(airfares inclusive). Those who opt out of it should be entitled to a $5,500 discount off the M3 selling price

How do you get that? You only have to pay for the airfare, and it's not $4500.
