Driver Training

Has anyone completed the BMW driver training courses - are they worth it , can you leap frog into the Intensive program without doing the Advanced program

Any general comments would be good - any circuit better than the other etc

Not the new program, but the old - drove the M3 and it was fantastic.

I did both courses with Zender earlier this year. Was well worth it and alot of fun. I would say that you would be fine to go straight into the Intensive program as that what I did. Definatley have a think about doing the M Dynamic day after that, its an absulute cracker!!!

... I am assuming you use there cars....?

What cars are there to choose from? My brother was talking about going with me the other day. He drives a M3.....

Do they have manual 135i's or are they only Paddle Shifts??
