Working at BMW

I'm going to school for automotive right now, and I just convinced BMW to take me for my second work term. Basically I hang out in the shop for a work week, watching, helping, etc. Could lead to a possible job after graduation, provided I impress them enough!

This is a dream come true

Wish me luck!

If hired, I'd be an apprentice technician. Assuming all went well, I'd be a fully licensed technician after 4 years. A fully licensed BMW technician.

Damn that sounds good.

Thank you all for your support...work term starts monday!

I'm just praying they ask me to move an M3. At my first work term I got asked to move a few cars, the nicest being an A4 cabrio.
