Iíve gone the past 2 years. They gave the timeslots figured out. The only thing that sucks is that for the steeet drives, they only have 1 of each car, so a line can form for the more desirable cars (in my experience, those were the 850 and the X3M)

Twice the fun at MetLife this Sunday... MSNE autocross and BMW UDE!

Attached the street drive menu from last year. The iX was better than I expected and sorta fun. If you go in the morning, there is usually little to no wait for the best like X3M and M850i.

Did this yesterday as well. I was in the 11:30 time slot and it was just dumping rain right before and during, They actually paused our session from too much standing water. It was my first time doing this, and will definitely do it again.

I was in the queue to drive the Z4 street drive, but someone appartently got in an accident with the gasser 7 and they shut it all down before I got my chance to go.

Got a ride in the i7 that my cousin was driving. Really comfortable and really boring. Ultimate passenger riding machine for sure. Seat adjustments via the touch screen were kind of flakey. And not being able to make most adjustments while the driver was doing something with nav ( or adjusting their own seat ) was a bit frustrating. I dont know if you can configure a split screen for both driver and passenger to be adjusting things simultaneously. The voice control did not work -at all-.

I went today. Got to drive the m240i ona street drive and some autocross in the i4 and 330e. Was decently fun. There were some issues or delays with the street drive being closed (some speculation someone had crashed or similar).

Not sure Iíd do it again just from a time spent waiting vs time driving. There were no m cars or suvs

I did the 2PM slot on the autocross - wet, but fun. The street drives were out of control. Some yohoos damaged another car an i4 or M440i GC. Cops were being called. Nasty. Some guys had a lot of time on their hands and were harassing the staff to drive a bunch of cars.

I was happy I got to drive the M240i, since M2s are not available for test drives. Boy the latest M240i with the 382HP moves. iDrive 8 was nice and responsive, certainly much better than i7 - not sure why people are complaining about it.

Almost made me question buying an M240i instead of dealing with M2 allocation drama. Only disappointment is that the rear seat headroom is substantially less than F82 M2.

Yeah, last year i drove i4M50 in autocross in DC, and I hit couple of cones, the car accelerated as fast as M3, but brakes were different story! Not my fault at all!🙂

I was on track 3 with 6 of my friend in that time slot. We had a blast even in the rain!

Went to UDE at Metlife Stadium with a buddy yesterday. Cold and rainy, but still a good time.

We autocrossed with both 330e hybrid and also an i4 M50. i4 M50 felt like a fast golf cart! The brake regen was a very weird feeling on an autocross, especially with no engine noise). Definitely would need the Borla digital sound amplifier.

I was in the San Remo? Green i4 M50 in front. Apologies for the crummy pic. Overcast & rainy from my friend's archaic iphone!
