You had to register for it. I did, they ask you Q's like why you should be picked and stuff, and what you currently drive. It helps to be a loyal bmw customer too, i included that we've owned 9 bmw's in the past 20 years, though, i know theres people in the world who have probably owned 20 of them or something. Anyway.....if you do end up getting chosen then they'll send you an invite, im hoping i get one.....i guess you could say i had a strong application haha but we'll see.

Sure why not a downpayment.....in addition to the test drive payment..... Hmmm uhh maybe becuase its a chance to drive the new m3 before most other people, in germany, and at nurburgring. Ehhh who am I kidding, thats too much, I know its the nurburgring and all......but shit, i'll be fine at willow springs race way or any other decent track with a new m3 (should i get one, which i probably wont for a while).....so unless it was all expenses paid, im out even if i do win a seat in the drive. i wonder if you can sell your slot....hmmm that'd be great.

You know, you could just ED The car and run it on the ring as much as you want....

5k for a test drive? Man there are some suckers out there with cash burning a hole in their pocket.

you guys are mixing two separate things up. in september, winners of a contest are being flown up to test drive the m3 for two days... this is at no cost to the winner. in october, a select few have been invited to come test drive the m3 for 3 days at their own expense.
