Go to bmw.ca, click BMW Driver Training.

Advanced I is half of Advanced II. You only do the straight line stuff such as and braking and emergency lane change, and is only half-a-day long. Advanced II has everything in Advanced I plus over/under steering on a skidpad, plus a slalom race at the end. It's a full day course. You don't need Advanced I before taking Advanced II, but you need Advanced II before they will let you do Perfection.

Anyone here done this?

What do you guys think?
FWIW...

I've done both... & AAE is a BLAST!!!
JMO, but you'll get far more out of the AAE if you've already done Perfection.
The Atom is a pure track beast & it's best if you have some skills b4 you try it.
It's more about the car than driver training.
