Wow, looks like a lot of fun!
When I bought my car in Dec. 07' through BMW financing I was offered a 2 nights stay at the Mariott and a one day performance class just for the purchase. This is different than a PCD. I think I spend the whole day at the track.

My track day is Oct.7 and I can't wait!!!!!!

The people told me it was a customers car. They could have been wrong, or it could be an employees car, a test car, it could have been anything.

As stated before, the sensor in the front bumper is Active Cruise. Its radar based cruise control.

Is there a gap between the hood and the grills on the new silver E90?

Yes, there was a gap. But it looks worse due to camera angle.

Thanks for the compliments

It would be worth it. Such a great experience. If I did actually drive home, it would have been a 2000 mile drive for me.
i dun mind if i planned a 10 day trip right after PCD....

Great pictures man!
I really like the new e90 body style and I love the fact that we can order them with space grey and red, and saddle interior now.
BMW woke up with the color choices.

Wow, cool pics! That looks like a great experience for picking up your new car. This really makes me regret not going with PCD when I had the chance.

You need to do it! Was so much fun. Get an X3, X5, X6 or a DD 128. Anything to go there, will be worth it.

You didn't get jipped. They are just constantly improving what they offer. When I was there back in July 07 for the two-day school, they didn't have that ice skid pad. With all these new features that I never got to experience (ice skid pad, turn off ABS from fuse box, drive M3, factory tour), I'm thinking I'm going to have to head back there for another two-day school pretty soon. And with the 20% for being a BMW CCA member, it's hard to resist two days of intense fun for $1K. Though, flying in to Greenville is super expensive since it's such a small airport. I think it's $600 round-trip from Los Angeles.

No, my day was the 12th. Would have been cool to meet another E90post member!

My trip was a special situation. I didn't take delivery of a car. It was called a 101 experience.

If you do a pcd airfare is paid by you

+1 I really wanted the space grey on an e90. Oh well.

I was never mentioned this either when I ordered my e90?
