Chapter Family Fun "Pick Your Pumpkin" Drive to Benefit NORWESCAP On Sunday, October 18th, the NJ Chapter will host a family-friendly 2-hour scenic drive through the farms of western NJ and along the Delaware River in NJ and PA. Once again our drive will benefit NORWESCAP, an organization which serves low-income families in northwest New Jersey. Come out and enjoy the fall foliage colors. This drive will take the place of our traditional Whack Your Turkey rally which will not be held this year. However, for those who need a fix of bad puns and silly clues, we will provide an abbreviated set of route questions, all of which can be seen and answered at touring speeds. No prizes this year, just fun. The drive will occur rain or shine and will start in scenic Clinton, NJ (starting point TBA) at 10:00 am and we are planning to end at a restaurant that can accommodate our group with appropriate social distancing.  There are no planned stops along the way but we will offer side detours if back-seat passengers need a break.  The route will be also available via Google Maps with a link here once details are finalized. We are collecting a donation of $20 per vehicle (cash or check) on the day of the event which will be donated to NORWESCAP.  Please register in advance for this event so that we can plan appropriately for our lunch stop and communicate with everyone: https://www.motorsportreg.com/events/fall-fun-drive-nj-public-roads-bmw-cca-new-jersey-274937 Face masks are required at all times (except while in your car) and social distancing behavior should be observed.

Got (Aim) Data? '02 E46 M3

I'm new to data having recently purchased a Solo 2 DL and would like to know if anyone is willing to share data, preferably someone with a similar spec '02 E46 M3.

I'll be going to WG soon... I have data from Summit Point Main with most laps in the 1:28 range if I recall. I know the car can do better, I want to know if it's a lack of bravery on my part :D (very likely)

xDelete app

Does anyone have any experience with this app? Claims to be able to engage and disengage power to front wheels on xDrive models. I tend to stay aware from aftermarket items like this but if it’s safe and reliable it would be awesome to enjoy RWD during the non-winter months.


Thanks, Bill

About Us

The New Jersey Chapter of the BMW Car Club of America was established in 1970 and today has of over 3,000 members in New Jersey and the surrounding area. Our purpose is to provide services and organize events that benefit and interest our members. Our goal is to help you get the most enjoyment and satisfaction from BMW ownership, and to create a community where members can share their enthusiasm for these terrific cars.

The Chapter holds a monthly meeting for members that often consist of technical presentations and demonstrations. Our social events are well know as fun, family affairs and offer a great opportunity for members and their families to meet and mingle.

Since we are a car club, we place a lot of emphasis on the safe, proper operation of the automobile. We offer several “behind-the-wheel” activities in a learning environment that are designed to improve your driving skills. These consist of our Street Survival program for teens, Autocross events and our highly regarded Driver School program.

Since this is a BMW car club, we also organize competitive events that explore the limits of these awesome cars. We hold regular timed Autocross events and sponsor several Club Races throughout the season.

If you, like most car nuts, can’t resist modifying, improving and maintaining your prized BMW’s, the club has a terrific collection of resources for you. The scope and depth of knowledge among our membership almost guarantees that you’ll find an expert who will gladly offer advice on any detail, and the club maintains a technical library and toolbox for your use.

This club exists for you, the membership, and is run by active members. What we do as a club is determined by you so, if you would like to see other activities, or additional services offered, please bring these suggestions forward.

So, join the club, come to a meeting, and meet your fellow members. We are sure that you will make new friends who share your interests – and passion – for these great cars!
