Talking **UPDATED - Valencia Orange 1M Performance Center Pickup and Drive to NJ

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Featured on 1ADDICTS HOMEPAGE.

I figured I would break down my trip to Spartanburg.
Landed in Greenville on Sunday morning.
BMW Proudly representing their Olympic Status




Called the Marriott received a nice pickup service.



Got to the Marriott the driver Matt was very informative of the downtown area for something to do at night as well as being very helpful and respectful.

Just hung out most of the day Sunday as there isnít much around the Greenville area. Stayed by the pool, then had Matt drive us to downtown Greenville. Nice area quite but something to do none the less.
Downtown Greenville.



Their famous Liberty Bridge




Had a beer at the Smoke House on the main street in Greenville.
Got back to the hotel had a great dinner at the hotelís restaurant, breakfast the next morning was also a great buffet style.

Next morning was Performance Center Time




Like a kid in a candy store as soon as I saw the Performance Center I was excited nervous and ready to go




We had some general overviews of the track, ABS and the routes we would be traveling before hopping into our track vehicles.




there was another gentleman picking up his 1M Valencia Orange also he had that color I had an AW 1M.




Next off to the factory tour ( i couldnt bring any cameras in there part of their policy)




Pretty amazing process we saw the x5s and x6s being built they use alot of their local vendors for products such as steel and seats.




We then proceeded to the off road course where we took our x3s in some 12"s + of water which they didnt even blink at, 45 degree angles and some harsh off-road environments.

We also took out an E60 M5 with the instructor boy can these guys drive... controlled and knowing how the car reacts....is priceless.





Then it was time....DELIVERY TIME....










Ray my instructor and product guy was awesome...very knowledgeable and a funny guy. He was upset I knew everything about my car haha.

Overall an amazing experience and a fun time a day is a good time but 2 days would have been a blast.
Thanks again to all the Performance people that helped make my first ///M an AMAZING TRIP and experience.


Some trip shots home

It looks like you used some sort of temporary paint protection for the drive back. Any details on what you used and how well it worked?

OP,

which part of NJ you located?

I would like to see this car in person since I ordered VO too.

I'm from Philly if it's not far from you, can I stop by and see your car?

What route did you take on the way back to NJ? I'd be doing a similar drive if I get my allocation.
