Good Morning. Recently moved to St. Pete. Looking to reconnect with BMW club. Currently I have an 08 M3. First question, can you recommend some good service shops in my area. Secondly, how do I update the navigation info? Third, does the local chapter have DE events and/or groups to 24hrs of Daytona, etc.
Thanks for your “Ask Gil” questions. Gill will respond specifically to your technical questions.
Regarding Chapter driving events, we hold periodic driving events at Daytona, Sebring as well as other “junkets” both in and out of the state. We have partnered with Gulf Coast Auto Crossers (http://www.gulfcoastautocrossers.com/) for those interested in autocross events.
Daytona and Sebring have been purchased by NASCAR…(I know that sounds crazy, but…), the purchase has dynamically changed the availability and price-point for track use. We are working out arrangements with Porsche (PCA) to partnership at these venues.
Welcome to south Florida. Looking forward to meeting you.
Hello Mr. Biel, welcome to the area. In order to give you a shop recommendation I’ll need your zip code so that I can recommend a shop that is in your area.
As far as your navigation update is concerned it is done by replacing the DVD in the navigation unit with a current DVD. They can be purchased from the dealer or a number of aftermarket suppliers, I usually get them from the dealer as it is the safest source.
Thank you for your question.
