Which school is running this? Also do you know if there are anymore spots left? I could always use a couple extra days this summer at the track. I am only booked for 11 days so far

It's the actual Instructor School for BMW and Porsche of North America. Not open to general public - invite only.

Nice my wheels are on, just waiting on my new tires, and still trying to find a shop to install my springs. I may just wait for my back to heal and do it myself.

Phone BMW Gallery. Honestly, they were great. I would be curious to see how much they charge you. Since they did the install yesterday, they would know exactly how long it took. The ride is alot better than I was expecting. The factory ride was perfect, so at first I was a little reluctant, but now, i'm glad I did it. Are you in the NW??

The dealer normally will have invites. I was invited last year when I got my 335.

Didn't work out since timing was not good.

I am doing 2 day M-School in 2 weeks so I'll get my fix.

Thats too bad, but don't you get some kind of cancelation fee?

Funny how you end up crossing paths with so many beyond people without even knowing it.

I called BMW Gallery and left a message, will let you know what they quote me.

I just looked back in my e-mail, Tunerworks quoted me $450 install plus alignment
However, apparently, Tire Craft on Macleod trail was going to install and do alignment for $350. I got that quote the MW Techik Design when i was going to buy by wheels and suspension through them.

Yeah, dealer invites most people to the Advanced School. It is May 15,16 in Calgary this year. The one at the end of April is the Instructors School, it's for the licensed instructors with BMW and Porsche.

Where's the M school you are doing in 2 weeks?

Jimmer what other schools are you with? Also what did you drive at the track before the M?

I am sure we must have crossed paths before if you are at the track much. My normal track beater is a black RX7.

I think we have as I know I've seen a black RX7 before. I used to be a member of the Exotic Auto Group and did all their lapping days but didn't do it last year as couldn't make any of the dates. I mostly do the lapping events with Jay Pringle. Since I'm going to be an instructor with BMW/Porsche I'm guessing I'll be doing as much as I can as time permits (especially since this will probably be the last year for Race City).

I was in a silver E46 years ago (Dinan mods) and then a black Lexus IS350 (HKS exhaust).

Who do you normally go out with?

I usually do Jay's events. I have set up a couple of private ones as well, and run with the porsche club and speedtech and done some solo in Calgary.

The black RX7 was most likely mine then. I will be at Jay's event this year. Mostlikely in the M3 as the RX7 is in need of a full build.
