All BMW CCA members are welcome to join the BMW M Fall Festival Extended Weekend!

On November 3rd-5th, come celebrate the fall season with the M and X chapters for our last big face-to-face event to close out the year. In conjunction with the BMW M Fall Festival at the BMW Performance Center, we’ve scheduled several events for an extended weekend in the U.S. headquarters of all things BMW:

Friday, November 3rd: BMW Manufacturing Factory Tours

We have limited spots available for the NEW “Glimpse: Best Fit Body Shop Tour.” Due to construction in the Assembly Hall (scheduled to finish in late 2024), this 50-minute, one-mile walking tour is very informative, specifically dedicated to the body shop. Guests will learn about the overall process of how the Ultimate Driving Machine comes “alive” at Plant Spartanburg. Tour guides will lead us through the Metal Finish area where you can see rear hatches, doors, and hoods attached to vehicles by high-precision robots. In addition, the paint shop process will allow us to see associates working on various components through the glass wall.  Cost: $8 +tax.

Limited spots are available in three time slots: 9:15 am, 11:45 am, and 12:45 pm. For those interested, please email X Chapter member, Afshawn Towfighi (, for booking instructions.

Friday, November 3rd, 5-8 pm: Thunder Bunny Racing Open House, Greenville, SC

Thunder Bunny Racing has opened up their facilities to all CCA members for the evening. Just a super informal hanging out session so BYOB and let’s get this weekend started!

Saturday, November 4th, 8 am: BMW M Fall Festival, BMW Performance Center, Greer, SC

This all-day experience at the BMW Performance Center will offer several opportunities for CCA members to drive and/or ride in the Ultimate Driving Machine!

Saturday, November 4th, 6 pm: 13 Stripes Brewery

Sunday, November 5th, 8-11 am: BMW CCA Cars & Coffee with BMW NA, CCA Headquarters, Greer, SC
