I got a similar invitation for M Power tour in Spain for the M5 premiere. Is this the same thing?

No, that's a slightly different type of event. The M Power Experience is different than the "M Power Tour" and is instead used to help launch a new car - in the case of the Spain event, the F10 M5. The focus is on a particular new model (although they bring other M models to test back to back for comparison).

Here's two journals from 2 of our 5POST members who recently participated in the F10 M5 M Power Experience in Spain:

The M Power Tour (like the one held in Colombia) is more of a general M marketing event where they bring an assortment of the latest M models for participants to experience.

But, both events are 'immersive' events where the participants pay good money for a 1-3 days total M experience, with multiple days of driving, mixed with fine dining and events.

Got it, thanks for the clarification.

So cool - there was an m power tour in the US when the e9x and the X5/X6M cars were being rolled out. Free event - drive on a set course with an M car or two. Very cool but nothing like this!

More from the M Power Tour for Latin America. This is from a cool ractrack in Lima, Peru:



The event wrapped up a very successful tour for 2011. Already looking forward to 2012 in Latin America!!

M Power Tour for Latin America: Trinidad & Tobago. Unfortunately, they do not have a racetrack in Trinidad but we made it work for a fun event for the BMW enthusiasts there.

Donnie:

Last year at the PCD when I told you that I was fluent in Spanish, What I meant was, Could I stowaway on the Latin America Tour?

Love the tight trackwork in Trinidad!

For all of you losers bemoaning that we need this in the US, we already do, it's called The Performance Center in Greer, SC, and it's open year-round.
