Just last weekend, Burnpavement.com and Munich Automobiles, the exclusive distributor of BMW’s high-performance M cars in Singapore, jointly hosted some of our Burnpavement LIVE! members at an exclusive “Burnpavement Live!” test-drive event.

47 of our dear readers came, got up close and personal with the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe through a presentation by Mr. Kugan Vyravanathan, the marketing manager of Munich Automobiles, and yours truly. Everyone enjoyed the cosy atmosphere of the showroom, the music and good food.

Even the little ones were not forgotten — also present were radio-control cars and a scaletrix slot-car track for them to get their first hand of driving.

Best of all, the highlight of the event: The opportunity to test-drive the range of BMW M cars. The models included the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe, M3 Sedan, M3 Convertible and the X5M. Smiles were seen on each reader’s face after spending some time behind the wheel!

Lucky draws and quizzes also took place throughout the day. Some lucky readers walked away with exclusive BMW M caps and Kozak dry wash cloths. For one lucky reader: A Plantronics Bluetooth headset worth $199.

We even held a Facebook contest — take a photo of yourself with the BMW 1 Series M Coupe, post it up on your Facebook profile and get five of your friends to “Like” it and instantly win a new BMW X6… die-cast model, that is. This contest got participants snapping away with their camera phones instantly!

The Burnpavement.com team would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you readers for taking time to join us at this event. A big thank you also to Munich Automobiles for their partnership with us in making this event a great success!

Look out for more “Burnpavement Live!” events coming your way. To all those who have successfully registered, we will see you at the Turf Club tomorrow for our first ever Defensive Driving Course, jointly organized with MINI!
