I've done the 2 Day M School and the 1 Day M School. How is it different? DO you get your own M3/4/2 or are you sharing?

I'm debating whether to do the 1 day or 2 day (use the CS voucher credit). Since you have done both can you comment on what the difference is and what you get to do the second day. I've read their description on the website but it doesn't really explain it.

I would do the 2 Day. The 1 Day is basically identical to the first day of the 2 Day. Seat time is maximized since there is no car sharing unlike the M Track Day. We get instruction and critique on drifting, cornering, braking etc. We do a timed autocross in the M4, a rat race in the M2, and the long course and drifting in the M3.

The second day of the 2 Day is a blast. We went to Thermal Club and did some lead follow then opened it up for lapping. Some more timed laps, a competitive event on the drift pad, etc. I'd say that the second day is where it all comes together and you get to really really push the cars to their limits.

Edit: hey looks like we have a similar Bimmer ownership history! I started with an 2013 328i, had a 340i for a small amount of time, but traded for a 2016 M3 right away, and now a M3CS. Quite a wild ride from a 328i!

Own car for every event. No M3 interesting enough. Just the 2/4/ and 5. 2 is on the "handling course", 4 is skid pad events, and 5 is for the braking exercise and the big course with the straight that you easily hit triple digit speeds on.

We did have an unusually small class, 9. We got at least 20 to 30 min of driving on each event, and got to do some extra stuff like J turns that aren't part of the curriculum. I think with a larger class you would get half that time, and then have to hand your car over to another student. We were lucky. Winter time and weekday is probably ideal time for smaller class.

Did you go to Thermal Club for the big course? Would you recommend using the voucher for the 1 Day M School instead, where you are guaranteed your own vehicle, but there is no Thermal Club instruction?

edit: just saw you are in NY/FL. Did you go to SC or Thermal?

So I just called the Performance Driving School, and it looks like our vouchers only cover the school itself, no hotel or meals???

Years ago when I received a complimentary 1-Day Driver's School ($849) I received the School, 1-night Hotel, and food.

And 2yrs ago, when I received another complimentary 1-Day Driver's School, I was able to use the $849 credit and upgrade to the 1-Day M School, and still received 1-night Hotel and food.

The woman I just spoke to at the Performance School, said the voucher would indicate if hotel/food was included. Is this correct? Can anyone else confirm the M Driver's Program only includes the 1-day school?

The voucher is for the 1 day M Drivers Package class so no hotel is included. However, you can use the credit ($1,550) and apply it to another class.

I upgraded to the 2 Day Advanced M School at Thermal and it includes meals and hotels, but was a $5,000 package before credits and CCA discount.

Thanks for confirming as well. I was just surprised hotel/food wasn't included when it was before with the less expensive driver's school.

Maybe it is their ploy to get people to upgrade and spend more money. It worked on me. Lol

Did you tell her you bought two m3cs.

That should fix it for you.

The voucher only applies to cars with the “Driver’s Package”, which is standard on the CS.

However, sadly in Canada, the driver’s package is not offered, hence we do not get the voucher even if the package is standard on the CS.

I started a thread not too long ago to see when folks plan on going. I ended up redeeming two vouchers I had on the 2 Day M School. I'm scheduled to go this summer.

Purchased around that same time and just got mine yesterday! It came in a long black envelope.
