Got mine after my '17 M3 purchase but had to bug the dealer with a couple follow up's due to not receiving it. They finally gave me a voucher good for 12 months and told me the dealership had to pay for voucher. Drove 35 miles to the PC in Spartanburg and stayed at a Hilton the night before with a complimentary dinner for two. That is what is provided for all M purchases thru BMW, although I ordered mine. Cheers

What do you mean by "this is what is provided for all M cars"? Are you talking about the Performance Center delivery?

Not relevant. The OP is polling CS owners to find out how long it took for them to receive the M Driver's Package voucher after purchase.

As the OP, I'd like a response to my question to him.

So, your objection is temporarily overruled. 😜

I think what he means is that if you purchase an M car, you get a voucher for a 1-day car control clinic (unless you get a car with the M Drivers Package). It's not advertised or well known.

Well, I've done several M cars and have never received that offer. Guess I'm not special. 😕

I hope that's not what he meant because that's not true.

But it is. Purchased an M2, got a one day car control voucher. Purchased an 18 M3, got a one day car control voucher. The voucher is attached to the VIN, I called the performance center, asked about it. They verified it (maybe a day or two later) and used that credit towards another school.

But it's not. You can't make an absolute claim just because BMW is handing them out on some purchases. I've purchased three F80s and I did not receive a voucher for my first vehicle but received one on my second. If you set up a poll with a query on members who received a voucher of some sort with their vehicle purchase you will not return results of 100% in the affirmative.

Sure. Ok. I didn't know about this at first either, but when I called the Performance Center and asked about it, they asked for my VIN, then a few days later called back and verified that I was eligible for the voucher and used that to buy a 2 day M School. I found out about this from another frequent BMW purchaser. You may or may not receive an email or something in the mail about it, but it's available IF you call.

Not true in my experience in the past 2 years. I think it also has to do with the selling dealer if your car does not have the M driving package.

For the Canadian CS owners, the CS qualifies you for the M Driving School voucher. I just got mine today. Waited 3 months and took a couple of phone calls, but just got mine sent to me via email and redeemed with the M Performance Center.

So after 5 pages of this thread I still don't see a definitive answer. Are US customers getting M school vouchers with the purchase of a CS and "M Drivers Package" option?

The answer is 'Yes' for the US market. The CS comes with the M Driver's Package so it doesn't need to be purchased separately. You buy a CS, you get M Driver's Package.
