It is spring, and to many that means annual Spring cleaning time. We look for household items that haven’t been used for a while and decide to throw everything away or take them to the recycling center. Sometimes however, during this cleaning effort you find a treasure—something of great value that you have forgotten.
Sometimes we forget about what benefits are available to us from Audi Club. We attend a few events, but more often miss many events due to conflicts in our schedules. We wonder whether it is worthwhile to renew our membership since we lack time to attend events. So in this letter, I would like to remind members how to maximize Audi Club membership benefits.
Membership not only provides special access passes to venues like the American Film Institute in Hollywood, 24-hour Le Mans Camp in France, early access to auto shows in the US, and other Audi sponsored events, but may provide up to $7000 savings during a three-year membership. In addition, members may join exciting social, charity, and driver education events across the country. Does this sound too good to be true? Here’s how this can become a reality for you.
We believe a three-year membership is the best value because it gives members time to earn the maximum benefits. I interviewed many members about how they extract benefits from Audi Club. Below is an example of how to realize this value in a three-year membership.
In a three-year period, an Audi Club member can easily do the following activities: A member’s family of four takes a ten-day vacation. The same family may also take a European Audi-driving vacation. This family may own more than one Audi car, one of which is outside of the original warranty and service plan. One of the family members is a car sports enthusiast, so he turns one of the Audi cars into a project.
With a house and several cars in the family, the member would like to minimize the insurance premium on family assets. Sometime during the three years, the family would purchase a new Audi. For an anniversary event, the wife buys an Audi Driving Experience Package for two at Sonoma Raceway. Throughout the three years they purchase Audi merchandise for family and friends for birthdays, holidays or business.
This scenario is a realistic representation of Audi enthusiasts’ activity over a three-year period. The table below shows how you can potentially earn up to $7000 savings. Individual saving will vary depending on where you live and which benefits you choose.
Beyond the financial savings, we have more priceless benefits! Access to high-profile and popular Audi-sponsored events would be difficult and expensive without an Audi Club membership. Some events and venues include the American Film Institute in Hollywood, 24-hour Le Mans Fan Camp in France, and early access to International Auto Shows in US.
The priceless membership benefits derive from our social, charity and driver-education events. Many of us enjoy the camaraderie and adventures of our fun drives, cars and coffee, technical seminars, remote Audi racing screening, Toys for Tots, Best Buddy, teen clinics, driver education, and other great events. These events provide more than an enjoyable time and charitable work—they promote Gemutlichkeit—a special cordial friendliness with other Audi enthusiasts and Audi dealers who share your passion for the brand.
I hope this Spring you will re-discover many treasures in your home in addition to the treasures of exclusive access passes to special events from Audi Club, up to $7,000 potential savings over a three-year period, and the priceless opportunity to have fun with other Audi enthusiasts.
