My 2012 M3 Performance Center Delivery

Arrived in Greenville around 6 pm and was picked up by the shuttle and taken to the Marriott. Checked into the hotel. After unpacking we headed down to the restaurant for a delicious dinner complete with adult beverages.





In the morning we were promptley taken by the hotel driver to the performance center where we were met by the staff.

Morning brief/introduction from Donnie.


My not-your-car (NYC) for the day.


Me and Gavin from St.Louis, he was picking up a very nice 135 with the M - sport package.


Then it is off to the track for some drive time. Donnie loves the sound of the M3 V8 so every time I came around the circuit I would here him say' "floor it, I want to hear the sound of that V8." He only needed to tell me that once.




The hot lap...........


After the track I took delivery of my M3. Donnie was my client adviser as well.




Then it was time for lunch at the Performance Center.

After lunch we were all given X5's to drive on the off road obstacle course. This was a complete blast.



Next we drove our new BMW's over to the factory for an impressive tour of where all the X3, X5, and X6's are built.



Back home with a couple mods and my winter wheel setup.

I had that exact same meal when I went there too that caesar salad and filet mignon were awesome. It was definitely a great experience.

Thank you!

Ever had to chance to take the McIntosh tour in Binghamton? I was there in 2002 and really enjoyed it. Got an MC-402 around that time which has made many sweet sounds.

No I haven't been able to do the tour at the McIntosh facility.

I have a pair of 501's and a MC 207.

Looks like the guy in the back seat is ready to puke in the Hot Lap photo. That I can relate to. Next time I do PCD I am putting on a scopolamine patch.

Haha, I'm slow as hell, too. Most of my readers get annoyed with my laziness to post shit.
