BMW CCA - Lone Star Chapter #121744

it if you have any BMW. The discounts at parts stores alone are(were) staggering. Interauto has been bought out.

no longer, quit about 2 years ago, I think I started as a member in 1990.

I just found there wasn't much in the Roundel mag to interest me much and that was my only perk from the national club. It wasn't worth the $45/yr.

Since there is no local CCA chapter in Portland, OR, I belong to the ACA instead. Seattle is the closest CCA group and they accept ACA members most of the time for their events.

Costs less per year and I get to still do the local BMW events + parts discounts etc.

Dues are 1/2 of the CCA.

I figured there was no big hurry to join, wanted to see if the club would last!

The yearly BMW raffle even though I haven't won yet : )

Enjoyed the $500 rebate on the wife's e91, and save a lot on parts with the 10% discount.

Have done some events with the local chapter, and they are a good group as well, although really into racing / driving schools versus classic rides like ours.

Like the magazine, love the pasion here.

I heard Dept. of Homeland Security and some government agency related to Health would not let Taylor join....something about incidents in upstate NY and dental issues or a toothbrush...or something like that. I think George knows more about this.

I don't know what I waited so long for (owned BMW for 18 years). The Roundel is worth it alone. I've even cancelled my Europeancar because I was done reading it in one sitting!
I haven't used the dealer discount yet, but that could pay for it alone also!

RoadFly Board. Much of his advice to the E24/E28 questions are answered in greater detail and with more helpful hints than Tech Talk has space to discuss.

Too bad that there's this lack of reciprocity since the E24 Board is very supportive of both BMWCCA and Roundel and markets both.

Each of our locals have a lot to offer or needs our help to offer more.

Met Mike Miller at Lime Rock this year. We had a brief, pleasant chat in the corral as he was admiring a couple of our E24s. FWIW, I don't recall him mentioning Big Coupe Group either but I'm not sure about signficance of either omission.

HE writes a Tech Q&A section like in the Roundell and also the vehicle model market reports and buying advice. E23/24/28 are probably covered in proportion to the relative number of vehicles on the road. And thanks to this board, BCG, and others we don't have to wait for a magazine to answer our questions. Who here has ever written to Tech Talk? No many I bet.

I e-mailed him about tire/wheel sizes for the M6. He responded within a few days and published my letter in the next edition of Roundel (this was a few years ago). I was surprised and very pleased.

Since 1998. Love Tech Talk in Roundel.

10-14-2007, 08:48 AM
not recently. One published in Roundel and he responded directly on the other. Worked for me.

since 1988 when I bought my first BMW. A 1972 3.0 CS. Prior to the Internet with its inumerable classified sources, as soon as I'd received my monthly roundel, my ritual would be read the classifies first, whether for the cars or the parts. Boy, I missed those 'good old days'.
