Thanks, much appreciated.

Ditto! Not to pro-ho, but either you or BForbes if not me. You both do a great job here, and your passion and ability to clearly articulate in writing would be welcomed.

I'd throw a vote in for Advevo as well purely on his flogging ability, though I'm pretty savvy too.

I hope it's at least a 1 series owner out of all the Bimmerpost guys...

No disrespect to the mods, but I'm way too excited about the chance to drive it myself to advocate for others. I want one, and I want to drive one NOW!

Well, you can forget all that. The new car is fitted with a turbocharged straight six. Turbocharging? In an M car? That’s like putting gravy on an ice cream.

This is 10 times better than Charlie and the chocolate factory!!! I can't wait!
Bummer that I signed up and sent it in before I read that a 1addict member will go. So I didn't get to put it on my application.

Ha! "Ive got a golden ticket"

You know, I had a similar problem as you. M-Power.com must have overloaded b/c I had real issue sending my application. I was trying to hurry and resend quickly last night (didnt know when cutoff would be). In my haste, i think one or two attempts didnt have my 1addicts username, DOH! I got confirmation, but who knows which one.

Oh well, it was longshot anyway.

It's Germany. You don't return home. LOL

Really though...if someone signed up not knowing how to drive a stick, man up and let the real men take the trip.

Doesn't matter to me, I can go on a few hours notice, but I'd be surprised if the announcements was closer than two weeks out from the date of travel - so mid next week. MAYBE as far as end of next week.

I just need time to get home, grab my passport, pack a bag and go.

I wonder if they'd let us extend a few days at our own expense?

Same here--I already talked to my boss--she rolled her eyes, grinned at me and said if I happened to win, it was totally fine.

Passport is ready and waiting....fingers crossed!!
