I wonder how they'll notify the winners? Via the email address that confirms your registration?

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

My guess is that they'd call you. The event is in a little over 2 weeks. I think mailing and waiting for responses would take too long.

They will post the winner on this thread. If you don't respond within 10 minutes, they pick another addict, and so on.

Omg! I'm gonna be glued to my iPhone. This should make me even more insane than "awaiting for transport"

Any idea when the drawing ends and when winners are announced?

No problem with manual (stick shift as you call it) but I might have a problem with the steering wheel being on the wrong side! I'm sure they will choose at least one from the UK (cheap flights!) and there aren't that many of us on here...! Good luck people!

Scott26 I know you will love your car and don't mind at all if you get #001 off the assembly line...

What I really, really hope for though is that your new 1M is Monte Carlo Blue!

Thanks for your little info-nuggets. Please keep them coming whenever appropriate.

Best of luck to you.

I don't know when they added the following but I have just checked the closed room and found this:

Applications are possible until the 3th of November. We will most likely announce the twelve winners until the 8th of November 2010.

Yup that's what I was referring to in my post. I should have copied it too. Thanks!

I bet the dozen folks chosen will be a cool group. Really into cars and BMW, like sports cars, willing to travel just to drive a prototype for a day. Yea, my kind of people!

So, after the test drive, the winners get to keep the car, right?...

Who wouldn't be tempted to floor it at the end of the day right when any passengers exit the car, kicking off the first 1M police chase too. Not a bad way to go if I say so myself.

Seriously though, if you got to do this, you'd be morally obligated to buy a 1M next year just to talk about it.

This just might be the longest week EVER!!!

Ah! Pick me!

:-)


Oh yea, I agree: get the test drive = buy one! I'm in for that. I'd love to pop out of the prototype and yell to the BMW officials "Where do I sign?!"
