If you have been to a BMW launch in the past you would realise that by the end of the night, no one is in any real state to test drive or move the cars around for a drive.:drinking::drinking:

Bur then again it will depend on your relationship with you dealer:iono:

Hmm, I dont think so, but the next day probably, a lot of people have already make appointments to test drive the cars from the next day, so just call your dealer and ask for a test drive and see what you can get.

Good on you Zuzu, I already booked mine at trivett for saturday morning (first free day I wil have) Do you know if they will let you take the car for a spin alone or someone have to be with you all the time? On the weekend I was on the VW and the Audi and both gave me their cars to drive by myself.

It depends on your dealer.
My dealer at Sylvania lets me take the car alone ,but I have dealt with them for the past 20 odd years.

I have an invitation to Doncaster, Melbourne, and Stillwells. Not sure if I want to go to any of them...maybe the Doncaster one as it is at an interesting location.

Hi Professor, I have been travelling. My 3 month old baby's first overseas trip!

If I go to the launch, I will be driving the new AMG as I will be bringing my baby. I bring him everywhere on the weekends!

Great place for a car launch.

Certainly beats the dealership.
