BMWCCA - Is it worth it

Is anyone a member of the BMW CCA? Is it worth it to be a member?

Magazine is good, even better when you get a rebate when you buy a new BMW or a CPO.

Yes it's good but tbh, after discount your pricing is the same as what you'd get on internet pricing. Only difference being at least you don't have to pay for s/h.

I think the biggest benefit that nobody's mentioned is your access to the driver school / track days as CCA events are typically for CCA members only. I just came back from an event this past weekend with the NJ chapter and had a blast.

I would say so, and you would join the rest of us and become a part of the National Capital Chapter which is the largest chapter in the US. There are auto-x events, socials, drives (the spring and fall pie run), hotel discounts, plus the dealer incentives/discounts.

I've been a member for over 10 years and have never been to an event. Rounded is a good mag and I like the discount on parts. (Oil and filters mainly). For the last 3 yrs I was going to cancel but kept forgetting.

I'm not a member, but I have read the mags. If you are in the market for a new BMW, would definitely subscribe the year or whatever ahead of time. Definitely pays for itself.

yes!

Though I haven't been to a driver's school in a few years, it's the most fun you
can have with your clothes on!

The magazine is excellent - despite an overwhelming bias of its editor towards
the E30 M3.

Discounts, rebates, information about new models, events, racing, etc.

...all good!
