Bridgestone, Media Passes, and Freebies!

My first Freebie!

This past week has been pretty incredible for me and Adam's Auto Advice.  A lot of cool things happened!

On Wednesday I got an email from Bridgestone Media Relations.  They saw my article about Driver's Edge.  They sponsor Driver's Edge and thanked me for writing the article and spreading the word about it.  I was then invited to a Drive & Learn event they are having at FedEx Field this coming week.  Essentially it's for testing out Bridgestones latest high-performance tires.  You go out on a track in a BMW and have a pro-racing instructor guide you through the course.  That way you can see how good the tires are.  Unfortunately…. I will not be able to attend due to a big family event.

On Thursday I got a Sylvania Headlight Restoration Kit in the mail.  Best part about it?  It was Free!  This kit was sent out by Sylvania for writers, like myself, to test out and use.  I'll have to determine whether it's a good product.  I already tried a 3M Kit for the headlights on my Mom's van, but I payed for that kit.  I'll have to find a car to test it out on and see whether it's good or not.  It will be interesting to compare.

I will also be getting another cool Freebie in the mail in a few weeks.  I won't tell you too much about it.  I will say it's an Electronic device that you can use to help diagnosis problems with cars.  (That's an obvious giveaway!)

Additionally I was granted Media Passes for 2 car shows and events.  I had a Media Pass for the Ocean City Car & Truck Show this weekend.  (I was planning on going today, but was not able to go due to some unforeseen circumstances.)  I also have a Media Pass for Tuner Evolution on July 16th, which will be up in York, PA.  It should be a really cool show.  I'm excited I was able to secure these Media Passes.  It feels good people are appreciating and recognizing the blog.
