Quote:
BMW invites you to pull out all the stops in the X5 SAV®. The Ultimate Driving Experience® puts you on a closed course with BMW’s newest Sports Activity Vehicle®. Professional drivers will guide you through fun driving techniques, honing your abilities – and making you a safer, more confident driver.
Push the X5 to its limits, while putting your new skills to the test. And see exactly how BMW weighs in against its competitors by trying them all out on the very same course.

Enroll your teen driver in our Student Driver Program, where professional driving instructors teach essential skills behind the wheel of a BMW X5, for a lifetime of driving enjoyment.

While at the event, you can also participate in the BMW Ultimate Drive® supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Get behind the wheel of a variety of new BMW vehicles, including the dynamic 3 Series Coupe and the exciting Z4 Roadster. For every mile you drive, BMW will donate $1 toward the fight against breast cancer. It’s a great drive, with a greater purpose.

The Ultimate Driving Experience will take place at FedEx Field, Landover, MD on June 29, 2007 - July 1, 2007 from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

I had late-model X5 and X3 rentals before. Wasn't impressed by either.

I'd be there in a heartbeat if it were the Z4 Coupe 6MT or M Coupe.

oh but the UDEs are so much fun, they have cameo instructors from the PC showing you the ropes (well briefly) so you really get to push the car. Plus they feed you, give you freebies etc

Try and get the Sunday July 1 slot, doesn't matter the time. We'll all adjust accordingly so we can attend this event as a group...

BMW keeps telling me that reservations don't start until June 23rd???!!!!!

I don't understand how you guys have signed-up....

Still no E-Mail invitation from them either.

Might have to be a BMWCCA member in order to pre-register?

Yep, I called as well, and they keep telling me the same. I told them I had an invitation, since I thought it might be by invitation only. I'll give it another try....

The link you posted takes me to a UDE page with the X5 picture, but there is no link where to register online. It just talks about what the UDE is. Anyways I gave the 1888 phone number another try and this time said I didn't receive an invitation and she signed me up!!!! She also mentioned something about a Philadelphia event that I should be invited to, but the point is that anybody who wants to sign-up should not mention an invitation apparently.

Ok ok everybody, do like how MDman did it...I think that is the best avenue. Again, if we can all get something on July 1, we can adjust our timeslots accordingly, basically show up at the same time and make them accomodate us
