Arrow BMW CCA Members Invited to BMW NA Open House @ Headquarters in NJ (Friday June 14)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
UPDATE: It was an awesome event, great to meet everyone there and see the cars. Everyone who went, please send me photos on BIMMERPOST or PM me so I can give you my email. Thanks.



So as a member of the BMW CCA in NJ, I got this invitation. Hope some of you guys can come!

Address is Woodcliff Lake HQ, 250 Chestnut Ridge Rd

BMW North America Open House This Friday!

This Friday June 14, will be our annual BMW North America Open House at its Woodcliff Lake HQ, 250 Chestnut Ridge Rd.

Because of the disastrous weather last Friday night, we will hold what would have been our Biergarten Car Show in the parking lot at Woodcliff Lake, right outside the 250 building -- see map newly attached to the Event Lising on our website for parking arrangements.

The car show will take place starting at 5 PM, and we will divide into the same three groups: Vintage/Classic, Modern, Motorsport, and pass out ballots for members to vote on their favorite BMWs. BMW NA employees will be there to provide parking instructions, but also be aware that other BMW employees will be leaving at around this time, so there will be lots of traffic in both directions. NB: new lower speed limit of 35 MPH enforced on Chestnut Ridge Road!

Between 5 PM and 7 PM, we will also have light catering (sandwiches/wraps), with enough food for the first 200 attendees, so please arrive early!

At 7 PM, all attendees will be divided into four groups, and from 7 PM to 8 PM, BMW NA will conduct four, 15-minute rotating workshop and product tours, topics to include the M Carbon Ceramic Brake System, the all-new BMW X5, a BMW i Update, and a 3 Series Update. (We ask that you stay within your assigned groups.)

If you have never been to BMW NA HQ before, here's your chance to see their training facility and meet some of the key representatives of BMW in the US. In the past, we have also been privileged to be treated to a sneak preview of something totally new from BMW. Will that be repeated this time? We don't know -- but we can hope!. You'll just have to come along to find out.

At 8 PM, we will all reconvene for a group Q&A, leading up to departure at 8:30 PM. BMW NA always puts on a great program for us, so this is an event to be sure not to miss!


CCA Members only. Please do have proof of membership.

This is an invitation that was made to CCA members, I think. You may want to join up before you go!

Will be there.

I think there will be alot of confusion based on this communication and the change to add the Biergarten rain day display from 5-7pm.

At the VDC tour in March it was mentioned that there is no need to rsvp, that it is open to everyone.

Now it says a limit of 200 people, but not clear whether that relates the whole event or a only the 5-7 or tour portions. Also it appears this is only open to members, what about associate members (spouses..)
I think what it intends to say is that there is food for 200 people, but no limit on attendees.

Now that it's posted on bimmerpost and consquently come through a facebook feed, response may be much larger than anticipated.

Get your buddies to join. Only 48 bucks and they get a great magazine and stuff like this meeting. Why wouldn't they join? For crying out loud, that's less than the cost of a tank of gas.

I will be there around 6'ish in the E36/7 unless it's raining, which means it will be the F30.
