This past week, our friend Irv Robinson went to Spartanburg, SC for his BMW Performance Delivery center pick-up. He ordered a BMW X3 and in order to experience the whole X-drive off-road capabilities, he decided to pick up his car at BMW's factory in Spartanburg.
The Performance Delivery program has been improved last year and became more appealing for many people, so for those of you that would like to experience the BMW European Delivery program followed by the Performance Delivery Center, BMW has made it possible for all of you. BMW North America has a great page with many detailed information on it, so feel free to read through them.
Probably the most exciting part of the Performance Delivery process is where the driver gets a chance to drive some bimmers around the track or off-road. Basically, the car owners will drive a BMW X5 on an obstacle off-road course where the car is subjected to extreme road conditions. To keep the adrenaline running, you will be moved then onto a race track where you will push the car to its limit. No need to be afraid though, a BMW professional instructor will be accompanying you.
For those of you that are looking to purchase a new BMW and don't have time to go to Europe and enjoy the other wonderful program BMW offers, then Performance Delivery could be something that you might want to take in consideration. The experience will be worth the extra few days you would need to take off from work.
As you will see from these videos, Irv decided to take his son on this trip and have him experience the ultimate driving. I'm sure the kids at school will be thrilled by his experience :)
Enjoy the wonderful videos, which btw, were taken with this amazing small video camera that we recently received, the Flip Video . We're in love with the functionalities, easy-to-use feature and the quality of the videos. Being able to just carry it in your pocket makes it even more convenient. You can read more about it here
