cool. thanks - but I've decided to have items painted instead.

I'm sure many people there would like to see your car if you want to advertise! So might be worth the drive down.

I just came back from there. got pedals for 50% off! Just got off 13hrs night shift at work and headed straight there so I didn't browse around too tired. They are sold out of shift knobs. & the performance steering wheel they are selling is V1 for those that are interested

they are just picking up and hanging up the phone. I wanted to see if they have any intakes or exhausts. I wanted to send in fedex or ups to pick it up for me to get past the cash and carry bit. Any news on performance parts?

Went to Maranello BMW, all performance parts and accessories are 50 % off as long as they have the stock. I was late for the performance intake ($600) sold out. Ended up of buying BMW chrome plate for $20 each. The exhaust will be $750 if they still have it.

thats a sick deal on the exhaust. intake price is not so great. euro box is comparable and it is still a lot cheaper. I wish I could get an exhaust.

Just came back from the sale and picked up a performance intake.

Lots of clothing for sale and for some reason a lot people were buying umbrellas ($35).

Please read his post. Cash and carry only.

Basically this is a gta sale. On a day like this, you think they have time to answer everyone's questions on the phone

Ahh.. I'm looking for a BMW M Motorsports polo for a while and them being half off is definitely an incentive. Too bad, I'm not in TO this weekend.

For the folks that were able to go, please let us know how good of a sale this was.

I read the posts in both forums a few times actually. I was going to try to send fedex in for a pick up or have a local buy it for me. I wanted to find out if they were selling certain items and how much and to answer your question, yes. I do think they would have extra staff for a sale and the ability to answer the phone.

Bucrat how much did you pay for the Perf. Intake?

Really? What's so special about a BMW umbrella? Do they have BMW boxers? Tuxedos?

you guys are just rubbing it in. Someone is desperate to increase revenue for a fiscal year end or something.

I was there around 1pm-ish....looks like a lot of the car dealerships in that automall were open today with the same 50% off...Must be part of the same ownership, and they are trying to make the year end numbers???
They had clowns there doing the balloon animals for the kiddies, and refreshments...nicely done..

overall, it was decent sales...I wasn't looking for any parts, was mostly looking for accessories, and clothing...

I ended up getting the M-Sport Chrono watch, which was $448 regular price..Got it for 50% off. Also, picked up couple of polo/golf shirts also at 50% off a regular price of $70.

Talking to couple of the sales reps, seems like as far as parts go, the steering wheel was a big seller. Their bicycles were a big sell too.

They even paid me to go there earlier than the posted time opening of around noon. (I was there 11:15am or so)

Got $20 Esso gas card for being the 1st 25 people visiting ... don't even have to buy anything at all. But I did buy some small priced items ... just to make it worthwhile.

Went yesterday too. Arrived a little before noon as well. Good to meet Revision2 in person too!

Ended up just picking up one of the Nike BMW golf polos. Wanted a CF Performance spoiler and CF mirror covers but they weren't in stock. Also went to see the electronic performance steering wheel but the only one there was the advertised version 1 (not version 2). It was a great deal for version 1 though.

I know there were some things on sale though like the Performance Exhaust though.

The Maranello Group owns all of the dealerships in the area so yes, it was a ownership-group promotion, not just BMW. Overall, it was pretty good.

commie, you might have seen Revision2 and I talking? If not maybe it was someone else buying a watch.

So you're the guy that Mike was talking about lol. He was saying how some guy picked up a watch for $100 less than what he paid for it and he works there! Nice pick up

Yeah, that auto mall is pretty much owned by the Remo Ferri group (including the Ferrari dealership). Not sure if anyone else noticed on their way out but it looks like they are building a McLaren dealership right beside Maranello?

Observation from the sale.

A lady in front of me at the Parts counter was buying some performance parts ($2000+) for her 1series but it was not in stock and yet she still got a 50% off deal and the parts guy says she will be contacted once the parts come in. When she was done, she was talking to a Service Advisor and bragged about saving huge on the parts deal and the Service Advisor congratulated her on it.
