Yeah but thats with only 1 car, your own. This is for 8 cars that don't belong to you. It's always more fun to beat on a car that doesnt belong to you! You're only paying about $162 per car so in a round-a-bout kind of way, you're actually saving $38!

Good rationalization, but of course you need to add in airfare to las Vegas or Willows for me, hotel, etc. If it was here locally, I'd actually consider it.

Rasmussen. I was #9 when I put my deposit down 10/05, but somehow move to #1 last December. My car is built waiting for shipment. Contact Scott Bradley if you want to check their list status scottb@rasmussenbmw.com.

GregW what is PIR ?
$200 that's 1/6 of the one day BMW One day M-school $1,295

Anyone cares to share experience with BMW M-school ?
i'm guessing there must be a thread for it somewhere on the forum.
