I'm signed up too. Don't know if they choose randomly or some thought goes in. I'm 44 yrs old, driving a 9yr old midsized car so I gotta think I look like a good "potential" customer. They are going to have 335d there. Curious to see what kinda bottom end "grunt" it's got.

Do they send out invitations immediately or all of them going to be sent out at a specific time? I've registered but haven't heard back from them yet.

My bro did this the year the e90's came out. He said he loved it, but at the time he preferred the e46 over all.

I too wonder what they choose by.

They asked: age, what are you driving now, when are you replacing it and whats on your shopping list. I'd guess they are looking for who's a good lead based on the answers. I expected a salary range question...(ie/ 40K-60K, 60K-80K, 80K-100K, above 100K etc...). You can shop all you want but they need to know there's at least a chance we can actually buy a car.

I hope lots of us get chosen, its sounds like a cool day.

I went to the x-drive event when they launched the e90's... it was fun. Looks like this will be the same thing.

You can just lie on the questions they asked, so it doesn't really serve much of a purpose

Did the xDrive comparison event a few years back.
Hopefully I qualify again. The parents did buy an X5... :-)

Well im 18 with a 1998 audi a4... the only think attractive I find is that my a4 might be just on the border of them thinking that i may want to consider a new car, however my age might shoot that down.

Id be pumped to go to this thing if they picked me.
