About this event
Ladies Do It Yourself (LDIY) Program Overview
This event is open to all members (ladies and guys) although ladies will be "first up" during the event.
Join us for a very special ladies DIY led by instructor Mary Snyder, a seasoned DIY’er. as she leads a session on understanding general maintenance on topics ranging from tire wellness, knowing when you really need brake work, basic maintenance (oil, antifreeze, brake fluid) and more. She will be assisted by BMW of Annapolis' shop foreman, Bob Hoffman. Bob runs similar programs for female Midshipman from the U.S. Naval Academy.
A team of our DIY regulars will be on hand to assist each attendee with a full bumper to bumper service & safety inspection. They have the tools and talent – they’re ready work side by side with you guiding you through some basic needed maintenance that could include oil change, brake fluid flushes, etc.. At the end of the session you’ll be provided a completed inspection checklist with any recommendations for any additional maintenance.
Never worked on your car before? Then this is perfect beginner’s session that will allow you to demystify what you’ve been paying for and save you money at the same time.
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 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. This event runs from 7:45 AM to 2:00 PM. Lunch for the event is provided by the club.
