I will try to make it, but it is quite likely that I will be working that weekend and won't be able to make it. I will know better as we get closer to the date. Put me down as a maybe.

I'm down assuming I still have my 135i (or any car for that matter).

I'm selling my 135i for a 6-speed something...TBD.

We might be interested in attending this meetup, but what exactly goes on at this sort of thing?

Just picked up my 2011 135i from the Performance Center in early October.

Oh, and no, they haven't figured out how to make the third brake light lens stay on the car.....yeah, already.

Hey any of you guys have any experience with Alpine's HID kit? Might need some help with mine at the meet if someone's feeling helpful

And to CapHill1er...I'm not sure myself I've never been to one, sorry to hear about your 3rd brake light...I think that's about the only issue I haven't had yet

I've been to plenty of car meets before, used to be very active in my old car communities and have made some friends for life from them. I'm not sure what all Mark plans to do at this one, but I'll be bringing my Canon and a tripod. I personally don't have very many pictures of my car as I just got it, but I'd love to get some and the more 1's the merrier!

I would imagine its sort of like a meet and greet to get to know your local 1 drivers and just see everyone's car, what they've got done, what they plan to do, maybe some food and drinks and whatnot too.

I dont plan on doing too much since it looks like its going to be a light turn out. The meet up time is 10am so it kind of early in the morning so I'm not sure if grilled bratwursts are the best thing that early. I figured it would be a good time to check out each others mods/cars. This is just an initial meet up to establish a group so we can plan other events. If you want to "do" stuff you need to attend the BMW Chapterfest the day before this event. They will have catered food, car show, autocross, go-carts, DIY's, etc. I plan on going to that too. Sunday is my recoup day.

Sucks about the brake light lens... Didn't even know it was a problem. Never seen a Blue water/lemon up close. That would be fun to check out

I'm interested in attending. Would like to meet some of you guys and see what you all have done to your cars. Think my 135i arrives at port on 29 Oct, but pretty sure I won't have it by Sun. Is it cool if I show up in a '98 Maxima I'm borrowing from the gf? haha I promise to park it out of the way and not ruin any photo shoots

No worries, show up in whatever car you want. I'm not a BMW snob and don't get offended by stuff like that. Glad you're interested in coming.

I did something similar to the very first car meet I ever attended. Showed up in my old pos '92 civic sedan at the time, but I was planning to buy the car that everyone else had.

Thanks for the welcome guys. If Saturday's "March to Restore Sanity" on the Mall doesn't take too much out of us, I think we'll be there. (Thus I can't make it to Chapterfest, though that sounds like fun.)

No mods on Bruno, but it does have DCT and M-Sport. Have to remember to get him clean and shiny prior to the meetup.

Here's one of the previous turnouts at Ft Hunt Park. They had grills going, gear heads were sharing mod info, etc. but I dont think this one coming up is going to be anywhere close to this. This meet coming up is just a kind of a meet and greet and some photo taking time. I'm thinking 2 hrs max. http://web.mac.com/aluckiedog1/Year_...Hunt_Meet.html

I didn't know about the Chapterfest, but I had already made plans to attend the Colbert rally in DC with some friends and my boss. If I knew you in person, I'd be like "Hey, see you there!" but I don't plan on driving that day, haha.
