Say Hello to BMW's Newest Employee

56 posts in this topic

My retirement papers from GM have been signed and submitted, they take affect March 31st, 2009 at COB. I start officially with BMW on May 4th, 2009. With my sick and vacation time I have, I will be paid until June 15th, 2009 by GM.

20 years with GM, so many memories, so many thoughts, I struggled with this decision for many months, with long sleepless nights, it was not an easy one for me ... I will be 40 in June, here's to another happy 20 years at BMW ...

It would have been an easy decision for me. Seems like you came to your senses.

Good luck. And don't bother trying to smuggle the blueprints for Epsilon II over to your new job. Something tells me BMW won't be interested.

:congrats: to you PCS. Feel free to drive the GMC Terradyne to NJ for me as your going-away present from GM. I'll meet you on the Delaware side of the Delaware Memorial Bridge to take "ownership" of it from you. Hahahaha!!

So where are you going to be based? Or will you continue to be a jet-setter? Do they have gated communities in Munchen...I only saw highrises, townhomes and unfriendly people? :lol:

Congrats! You went to my second favorite car company...a company that builds cars for people who enjoy the driving experience. I have a huge soft spot for BMW and their engineering. I wish you great luck, and most of all: PROST! :cheers:

Good luck with your new position. As a past BMW owner, it's company I still have a lot of respect for, as they are committed to RWD, straight 6s, driver involvement, and all that is good in a world of FWD genericism.

He should totally do that. The local BMW dealer here has Scion xB shuttle vehicles with BMW roundels.

I've seen some interesting US vehicles in Germany, including a NA Fusion and a NA Odyssey. On the autobahn. Maybe it was the US military base in Heidelberg?

Nothing like seeing a minivan doing 110 on the Bahn.

While you still can, sneaking a new DTS into my driveway would rock :smilewide:

good luck with your new job, PCS! I know you must be glad to have more job security at BMW.

I know what he's really up to! I saw it when I was walking down the Navy Pier in Chicago!

Changed his name and started his own business.

Well, I guess somebody at GM saw your posts here... oh well, getting fired isn't the stigma it once was, I guess.

Good luck @ BMW, PCS.
