Going to be a BMW Tech!

Very excited!

Have been spinning wrenches on Honda and now Acura for 18 years.

Just signed an offer letter to start at BMW at Otto's BMW here in Ottawa. Oldest dealer in the country, and was actually selling BMWs 21 years before BMW Canada even existed.

Congrats dude! For some reason, I thought you owned your own garage. I don't know why...just did.

But that will be awesome - make sure you take the cars you work on for a...ahem...thorough....test drive. For safety and all.

Nah, most of the cars I will be working on will be slower than my every day driver.

Very cool. I assume you'll have to go through a bunch of training before you start?

BMW offers a great "Drive your brand" program, crazy 2 year lease rates on new cars. One guy at Mini just picked up an M2!!!
