Decisions, Decisions: M5 Driving Experience or M5 Extravaganza?

Hi guys!

Which event would you guys attend?

I want to attend both events, but I cannot get the time off due to my work schedule and vacation plans to attend both.

It would be great to meet a lot of the members from this board at the Extravaganza.

Is the driving event at Sears Point still open or is it full? What is the cost? Are rooms still available in Monterey?

Is the M5 driving experience a can't miss opportunity? What do you think?

Thanks. I look forward to meeting some of you at one of these events.

Sandy

Sandy,

I would go to the M5 Extravaganza and simply postpone the M5 Driving Experience to a later date.

I believe the M5 Experience offer is good for 1 year after you purchase your car. If there is a scheduling conflict I suspect they would make exceptions. Therefore I think I would do what Andy suggested..

Call the people at the driving experience and explain you want to go but your schedule right now wont let you- Ive found them to be very flexible.

The Extravaganza will be a much more diverse event with much more cool stuff to look at, but less opportunity to drive an M5 hard (unless you can get in at Sears - but I think we're sold out.)

Still - I would do the extravaganza. Should be a lot of fun.
