BMW Report

Kicking off the weekend, brought to you by the letters B, M, and W at Tobay Beach

Chilly? Wet? Bring it on!

After work on Friday I was thinking of going home, but then I remembered that the loyal readers of this NMS blog would probably like to hear something about driving a shiny brand new BMW for free, and really stomping on the gas a little bit. So...I headed to the BMW Ultimate Driving Experience, just for YOU!

The new look front end of BMW, are you a fan?

BMW kicked off their 2021 season on Long Island yesterday, and with some rain falling on Tobay Beach, we jumped into a brand new M440i xDrive Coupe anyway! After several autocross runs, we can say that this automobile from our friends at BMW would make the PERFECT birthday, Christmas, Anniversary, Father's Day, or any other day present! For more info on the UDE, future locations, and all things BMW, check out the link: BMW UDE

The BMW folks were very serious about COVID precautions, here we check in
and get our temperature taken. Everyone wore a mask. The instructors coached 
the drivers by radio, not getting in the car like in the past. 

Oh, by the way, the car that we drove is at this link: M440i xDrive Coupe
With 382 horsepower, and a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds, it was a hoot to drive! Starting at $58,500 you can pick one up today!

How about that front end in BLUE? 
This is right before the rain hit. 

One of the other driving events that I watched when I arrived was a short drag race pretty much, but by the time I was done with my autocross driving, the rain was a bit too heavy and the drag race was closed. Oh well, the autocross was a blast!

I thought this green color was pretty nice!

One small hazard of autocrossing around cones is that once in a while, 
you hit a cone and it sticks under the car! One of the instructors drove this 
car a bit more and finally got it out!
