Hmm, maybe I want to come over and see your VO 1M.
I saw on the Spa-Francorchamps calendar that the 18 April says "Norrington" incentive. What kind of track day is it ? Private?

GREAT!!! I live in Luxembourg, 80 miles from SPA and also 80 miles from the RING! So, please let me know, when you will be at the ring?? Maybe i can come to Spa on Monday, but if it's a private trackday, maybe no way to enter the paddock for me?!?!

I agree what's with Canada being first for the 1M's even over the EU?

Any way Congratulations on your ED, can't wait to read more!!

No way! That is one of the downsides to doing an ED. They drill holes in your bumper to mount the plate. I decided to leave my front ED plate on my car and it's still there today.

You can also get Bumper Plugs to plug the holes.

Yes, the front plate is attached with double sided tape at the Welt.

My 335i ED was in May of 07 and it defiantly has holes in the bumper. I can't speak for certain about now but I too would love to hear if they are using tape instead of screws.

The Front Plate is attached with Double Sided Tape....I know becuase mine is sitting on my office desk now....They let me keep it when I arrived at the BMW drop off point in Frankfurt!

Have a great trip MNavigator!! See you at the first SPDA event! Can't wait to see and hear about the other tracks you're going to drive!!
