I've only been to one each so take from it what you will. I just had a better time all aroudn. A bit different crowd. Way less people.

Others have expressed to me that they like that the BMWCCA autoX because less competitive then the SCCA, although I don't have a problem with it being competitive. I'll go to as many of each as I can.

My main thing was that there were much less people and so tons of runs!

: Let me begin by saying this is not intended to be bitch letter against the BMWCCA. I am hoping that someone can show me how we as roadster owners benifit from belonging.

: After buying my M Roadster I saw the adds and thought, Wow this will be cool, I can join in the driving schools and learn a few things. Then I find out , "sorry, NO open top cars" Hmmmmm. Well that sucks. But OK, Their game, their rules.
: Now I don't know about anyone else, But I am certainly not going to butcher my 40K car with roll cages and 5 point restraints just for a "maybe" once a month ordeal.
: Don't get me wrong here, I am not sure I would wish to be in the instructors shoes either, And we all know how lawyers have screwed things up with regards to liability.
: Take the old lady who was too stupid to realize she was trying to drive her car with a cup of coffee in her hands.
: that cost Mac's $3 mil because they didnt tell her it was HOT !!!!
: Or look in your own car at all the stickers to warn you of possible death from airbags.

: So I ask, what does my 35 bucks do for me?
: the magazine is nice, but not worth $35
: the local newsletter is slick, but tells of all the events I can't attend because I bought a roadster.

: Discounts?
: on what? Ok, I bought two T-shirts at the dealer, but that was it.

: I am afraid I cant justify this expense.
