New Microsite

Due to public opposition, I've since revised and rescinded my original post. Sorry for wasting your click.

Please visit BMW Canada at www.bmw.ca

I can't believe you posted that site. Somethings are better left unshared. Ok, so i'm a bit selfish.

Well by the looks of it there's no shortage of people from 1addicts on that site already, there's no shortage of links to 1addicts on the linkshare app.

From all the lurkers out there....... Rachel, Sylvie, Dan, Graham, Jonathan, Warren, Robert, Craig, Chris, Arthur, Harry, Mike, Amitava, Stefan... we know you're out there... watching....

Don't worry dudes and dudettes, I haven't revealed any secrets, I may have simply been naming random names, no privacy laws have been broken. Its nice to think though that for every person on here that posts, it seems like there are a lot of people just sort of participating by taking it all in which is cool. :respekt:

The posters are just the tip of the iceberg.

Guilty as charged. :biggrin:

I wish there was some way to gauge how many "points" you'd need to get selected. But at the end of the day, it's just a glorified test drive, which is going to be possible at the dealer anyway. I still think it'd be good fun to get out with a bunch of other 1er fans though.

Cheers

I was invited to the same sort of event at the same venue when I was looking at buying our new Mini. We got to drive the Cooper & Cooper S on a closed course with some of it's competition (GTI, A3, Mazda 3). Not overly challenging but a ton of fun.

I actually took part in one for the x-drive (went with my father who has a 328xi). There were some A4 Quattro's, a 328xi, X5, X3, and either a Lexus or an Infiniti and a MB. It was actually pretty cool. The funniest moment though was when the track marshall had to radio the a guy in the A4 Quattro to slow down because it was running the course way too quick.

I feel like my age has put me at a huge disadvantage. If I try and start up a Facebook page my two teenage daughters will laugh me out of the house

I think once we have our 1ers (or whatever respective car anyone on here picks up, Bimmer or otherwise), we'll have to have a meet. I see there's a lot of people from Calgary and Edmonton on here.

Very sneaky Road Runner! The experience would be worth a lot more if it was happening before the unveiling. I imagine every 1addict will have had a chance to drive the car by then, and half of those intending to buy will have them in hand by then.

As for enlisting my help to build hype - forget it. At the rates they are charging - I owe them nothing.

I propose we give "thumbs up" to anyone we see on the microsite that comes from 1addicts... maybe then our first meet can be at COP!!!
