Arrow BIMMERFEST - Are you going? Shall we convoy?

Had a good time hanging out with folks at the WheelPower get together Sunday, even if I should have used sunscreen . http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5971

I'm posting this thread to see how many people are looking to go to the Bimmerfest get together on May 3rd. http://www.bimmerfest.com/index.php?page=home

It would be nice to meet up in a group in the early AM to convoy out to the gathering. Anyone interested?

I'll bring my photo gear to document the day.

I am thinking about going. Should we join the 3 series caravan?

I might be interested in going, but I have to see if I have to work.

Ewww, why would we want to join the 3's? Why be 3 when you can be 1?

I had a thread started about 3 weeks ago and only 1 or 2 people responded. At e90post they already have a route planned from SD to Irvine to LA and another heading down from the Bay.

Yeah, it looks like I'll be going to Bimmerfest. My wife enjoyed yesterday's event so much that she's now excited about taking the kids and hanging out in beautiful Santa Barbara for the day.

I'd encourage the idea to hang out and caravan with the 3 series guys. I had a great exchange with a few of the 3'er guys yesterday and it would be great to foster closer camaraderie and brotherhood with them. Besides, many of the more serious 3'er track boys (esp the E30 & E36 guys) would be potential buyers of the 1, as opposed to the the bling bling/Dubs/chrome crowd who would likely not even like the 1'er. :biggrin:

I wouldn't want for anyone to have an "us vs them" mentality. We all enjoy and appreciate cars, and that's a good enough reason to have fun together and learn from each other.

I think he meant that because some people felt 1ers shouldn't be convoying with the 3ers, he wouldn't be able to join the 1er caravan in his wife's 330...

Oh, I'm just teasing, don't worry. Maybe we can find out how many neatly folded future 1 owners can fit in the trunk, or backseats, whichever is more comfortable. I wonder if you can go in the carpool lane if you have a body in your trunk. Hmm....

Sounds good to me. The larger the convoy the better I'm thinking.

We are having a pre-Bimmerfest party at our shop in Santa Barbara starting at noon time.

Please feel free to stop by to say hello and have some refreshments and soft drinks on us! Map and directions is available on our website.

We may even have the brand new 135i with the first Borla exhaust for those interested in hearing it in person.

Robert - can you post a link or info on that route.

If anyone else has info on places and times for group travel, please share - the more the merrier! :biggrin:

I don't know that I can go all the way up with you guys cause I may have to work on Saturday, but if there's going to be any stops or a mini 1 get together, please let me know. Maybe one day I'll actually see another 1 on the road, although I secretly enjoy having one of the only ones and would prefer they just stopped making them. hehe. Somehow it seems less special if every dick, jane, and harry have one.

Looks like the official Bimmerfest meet up point for Orange County is in the Ikea parking lot in Costa Mesa at 6AM on Saturday. Should be quite a turn out and quite a caravan.

I'll be there before 6 and ready to go. Details on the link below.

Hope to see you there :wink:

The 135i has returned with the Borla exhaust.
KW will be on site for spring install and corner weight the car!

And for those wanting to hear the Borla prototype exhaust for the 335i in person, our project 335i will be there as well!
