Our friends at BMW were back in New York City with their Ultimate Driving Experience this week, and once again it was a blast to drive their cars! It's just hard to beat the offer of driving someone else's brand new 382 HP car, while they keep telling you to go faster! In this case, with a pro driving coach that was helping me go faster on a little autocross circuit.
|Welcome to Citi Field, the BMW flags are flying!|
|I've got a free coffee, and a lanyard with a badge. Let's do this!|
|Let me get this straight, you want us to drive your new 382 HP car and go|
as fast as we can? Well allrighty then!!
|Group 1, your cars are waiting. There were 4 separate courses running at the same time!|
|A few highlights|
|Hey, they come in blue! Let's go Mets!|
|There was also some golf event going on inside Citi Field.|
I don't think they had as much fun as we did!
|Full disclosure, I was 4th fastest out of my group of 21 drivers.|
The instructor was a big help.
|BMW i3 electric. I've driven this model before, it's my favorite|
|More cars available to drive.|
|I skipped the SUV mountain climb event, but it looked like fun.|
|You won't lose your car in a parking lot of black/silver/white cars when|
it's this color!

|Don't forget that BMW makes motorcycles too!|
