Notice – Forum Shutdown

Effective immediately, the discussion forums on the club web site are being phased out due to lack of use and the amount of effort required to maintain them. Existing content will be left online for reference purposes for the time being.

BMW Car Club of America Foundation CAR RAFFLE

The BMW CCA Foundation is selling raffle tickets ($20 each) for a chance to win a 2-year lease on a BMW M235i or a set of (4) tires. The raffle proceeds will benefit Street Survival and BMW CCA Foundation programs. The drawing will be held LIVE during the awards ceremony at the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival and Concours d’Elegance on November 1, 2015.

We only have 2000 tickets to sell – so the odds of winning are good!

Here’s the catch… we cannot sell tickets online – so people will either have to purchase a ticket from a representative at one of our upcoming events (see below) or print the form and mail payment (postmarked by October 15) to the BMW CCA Foundation office in Greer, SC.:

There's almost no denying the seduction of the ALPINA brand. It's hard to explain it but there's something wonderfully mesmerizing about ALPINAs, in a way that BMWs simply can't be. Maybe it's the power, maybe it's the performance, maybe it's the luxury or maybe it's the way it combines all [...]
