    02/08/2014 - DIY @ Russel BMW

    Feb 8Do It Yourself (DIY) Program Overview
    The Do It Yourself (DIY) program allows National Capital Chapter (NCC) BMW Car Club of America (CCA) Members to work on their own cars under the supervision of expert mechanics and technicians provided by the DIY Sponsor. The purpose of the DIY is to learn and practice proper maintenance and repair techniques that you can routinely complete within a two-and-one-half-hour (2.5 hour) time period.

    There are typically several NCC members who can assist you when an extra pair of hands or advice is needed. We are happy to show newcomers the joys of working on your own car. Most events start at between 8 am and 9 am and typically finish at 3 pm. Lunch for the event is provided by the club.

    The DIY Program Webpage is here http://www.nccbmwcca.org/content.php?119-diy
    This event offers online registration and payment through MotorsportReg.com.

    Replaced both front swing stabilizer arms supporting the anti-roll bar, replaced the right and left rear back-up tail-light covers, repaired four windshield chips, replaced the AC belt and registered my new BMW key at the National Capital Chapter DIY event that was held at Russel BMW in Catonsville, MD. Thanks Russel BMW and Gil for being wonderful host.

    First DIY. This was a good time. What a benefit to have access to a service bay and and on sight parts department. Russell was a great host and their parts department had everything I needed. Thanks for hosting! Also a big thank you to the DIY volunteers!!

    You don't know how lucky you are.
    Very few chapters have such a program.

    That's one of the things I miss the most from moving away from the area.
