Hi lads<br>what is the best club to join? i am currently in the drivers club but i don't think it's much use. I called there technical department with a couple of simple questions and did not get anywhere. The "special" insurance for members was far more expensive than an ordinary polocy.<p>what clubs are you lads in?<br>David <br>87M3

erm, none :). Never found one quite for me. I have noticed that the BMW car club now have leaflets in dealers, and according to the leaflet I have in my hand right now, members qualify for discounted parts at selected dealerships. They also organise trips, trackdays,, skid pan trainging etc.<p> <br>Drivers club I think organise track days at cost only (probably Car Club do too). Last summer I was amazed to find a weekend trackday at castle combe was organised by them at the cost of just 50 for members or 60 for non-members!!!!!! I didnt go because I was led to believe "on the phone" that you only got 12 laps, what they didnt tell me was that after everyone had done their 12 laps the track was run open pitlaned.<p><p><i><br>Hi lads<br>what is the best club to join? i am currently in the drivers club but i don't think it's much use.

<i>This is my opinion on three of the clubs.<p>BMWCC UK - Discounts at dealerships and services, track days at cost, well organised. Current member (will be renewed)<p>BMW M Power Club - Track days at the same price as normal punter, generally - toss. Membership will not be renewed.<p>BMW Drivers Club - Less **** than the BMWCC, track days are cheap (but can be run poorly run and you end up with some real dodgy cars on track)<br>Not a member.<p>If you just want track days, then I susggest just booking days online with someone like Bookatrack. If you want technical help the BMWCC is pretty good, but not as good as a friendly local expert/garage. <p>Roops.<p>Hi lads<br>what is the best club to join? i am currently in the drivers club but i don't think it's much use.

<i>..Years ago (I mean like nearly 20 years ago) I was in the BMW Drivers Club.....I left because it was bollocks! If you ever actually phoned up you'd get someone saying something which made it patently clear that it was just an office that 'organised' lots of supposed 'car clubs' but really it was just a money making exercise! I don't know if it's changed more recently? The BMW Car Club is no big deal but at least their magazine always turns up on time!<br>Hi lads<br>what is the best club to join? i am currently in the drivers club but i don't think it's much use.

David,<br>No trackdays? You ought to have a crack at the BMWCCGB day at Croft, as its not too far away from you, (I live in Newcastle too) and its well organised. You need to join them though, although its only about 30 a year and the mag is OK, a glossy affair. The Croft day is on Monday 8 July. I'll be going to others there as well, but they don't seem to have released the dates yet.
