Welcome to BMW ownership - I would recommend that you consider joining the BMW Car Club of America's Tejas Chapter, which covers Central and South Texas areas (Austin, SA, Corpus, and out to El Paso). We have many members who are very knowledgeable about various BMW models, a website with a calendar of our monthly events and non-club activities we have access to, and BMW of Austin offers our members a 20% discount on parts and labor. You can join the chapter at http://bmwcca.org
, which will include discounts at a number of merchants, the monthly Roundel magazine, and a lot of other perks. Our membership numbers approximately 900, and we welcome new owners to the club!
Great start and advise!
