Chicago Auto Show Media Preview Day 2018


Our good friends at MINIUSA were able to arrange for a limited number of passes to attend the Chicago Auto Show media preview day on Friday February 9th.

A great opportunity to experience one of the countries largest shows before it opens to the general public.

WRAPUP: A very snowy day kept the sparse crowds even quieter.  All the better opportunity to get more 1 on 1 times with the cars and the rides.  Huge thanks to MINIUSA for making these tickets available to our club!

    • Media preview day is great because the crowds are much smaller. You are in, but the link to get your tickets will be sent out in a couple weeks.

  1. Thank you again Steve for this opportunity. My friend has a Countryman and we love stopping by the MINI booth every year. Hopefully we can get passes through you again. This would be our 4th year under Media Day – and we love it – one on one with all the new cars and get to ask limited questions.

    • Nope, no tux needed. They kick everyone out of the Media preview day at 2pm and reset for the evening event.

      If you do show up in a tux.. I’ll take a pic and put you up on the club website 😉

  2. Please note: I have had a bunch of recent responses for tickets in the past 24 hours.
    I wont be able to send back the details till late tonight. I hit a mail sending limit yesterday and am in a “cool off” period.

    • Update: Still having issues sending out emails.. I will be sending out info to everyone Friday morning

  3. Sherri and I went to the show today had a great time. Spoke with the MINI reps at length as it was a slow traffic day. We missed seeing any club members though. 🙁
