.... Advanced II sounds like the perfect fix until the car arrives ...

just checked the website, but there's nothing available for Perth

Gonna just have to keep checking. There's a couple other guys at work who've bought with the corporate program and are keen to do the driver training ... might have to make a "team building day" out of it :biggrin:

The Advanced II consisted of.....

1. Breakfest.
2. Laps in the 325's with a partner, Instructor in a car in front.(quiet quick).
3. break.
4. Emergency braking ABS and avoidance.
5. break.
6. Slalom, course timed event (where I won my model M3 :biggrin run with Geoff Brabham!
7. Lunch.
8. Oversteer in the M3 :biggrin::biggrin::happyanim ::biggrin::biggrin:
9. break.
10. laps in the M3, 185kms down the straight (barbagello short track!)
11. Hot laps with instuctors, NO traction control on

Advanced II :wub:

Mark
8, 10 and 11 were DEFINITELY the BEST. I distinctly remember feeling a bit in awe of the M3 when I punched that go pedal in my first oversteer.

After my M3 experience I rang the dealer to see if I could cancel my 135i (due next month) and switch to an M3 coupe - yep, no problem.................until I checked out redbook.com.au

An E92 2007 M3 coupe that on road costs close to $180,000 (thats with the rip off WA stamp duty etc) has a trade in value of $114,100 to $123,400!!!! That is a loss of $55,000 to $65,000 in 8 months!!! Brain won over heart on that one!

Total driving time

How much driving time did you get? How many other people were on the course with you?

18 people on the course, we were paired up with someone else so the course ran from 8:30 - 5:30, so with breaks each person got around 3-4 hours of driving. And at the end of the day my arms were sore....
