Advanced driving school

If you haven't been to one of these, then you're missing out. Good way to improve some driving skills and I can even begin to tell you how much fun the skidpad is. Who's going to this?

I'm registered for this.... figured it'd be a good experience given the 135 is my first rear wheel drive car.

I'm registered for this one in May also, can't wait! Though apparently my status is "applied" but not "accepted"

They want to make sure you have the right car for the course. If you registered with an SUV then you will be denied, but they'll accept you with no problem. Unfortunately, I just realized I have a wedding on that exact day. I knew if was going to get in my way somehow. I'll be in for the next one definitely.

If you are not a BMW Chapter member then it is well worth the few bucks to become a member. The money would save on this course alone would probably pay for the membership.

My wife and I are both signed up for the May 9th, and I think it will be a blast.

I'm signed up for the EVO school on the 9th. Maybe I'll try a different one.

Yea, I became a member when I bought the 135 just for events like these! I'm excited. Will be good to see other 1ers there too.
