this might be a bit long for lazy readers like me but hear me out!

i loved the location of the LA area at the ross parking lot over there right off the 101, had a lot of us there, but realized once we got on the freeway, i saw more toyotas, hondas, benz's, cadis, and all the other cars in this world riding on the freeway then the caravan. i was pretty much at the beggning...

point being we should really stall if were in the front so we can have a fat chunk of bmw's rolling together. it seemed real empty...

lets not mention i got pulled over and saw the spaces btwn the groups.. it wasnt as good as i thought it would be, yet still had a great time. I missed out on the part where everyone pulled over.. is that how everyone gets together b4 we roll in?

I don't know if I'll make it this year :(

Car took some front bumper damage recently and I don't know if I'll be able to fix it in time. Not much damage, just a fist sized hole under the passenger side fog light on my M5 front bumper :(

I actually am thinking of driving to it damage and all just for the event. what do you guys think?

Body shopt not the issue...the $$$ is lol. But I may take 6 Brits advice and drive it up as-is and just let everyone see the hole. :rofl:

well if it's a hole the bumper needs to be replaced and that bumper is very pricey if I remember correctly

Nah, I can get away with bondo, primer and new paintjob. Anywho I've decided to drive up to 'fest as-is with the hole. It's just a little bit smaller than the foglight it's under lol.

So far it looks like we'll see you there leeor! As it stands it will be myself, the Mrs. and our 2 newborns (Who will be born on March 25)

Also I found out from a friend that Glendale/Burbank/Pasadena always meet up to form their own "mini caravan" so I'll be a part of that when it is formed. If not then I'll find out where the LA caravan will meet and ride with them!!

so if I have like me and 2 or three other cars going is there any way we can meet up with yall when you pass Ventura...anyone else in Ventura/Oxnard want to join in? We could meet at surfers point or something...

leeor
03-17-2009, 12:59 AM
6brit's got a good idea, the few that are from ventura.. meet somewhere and keep intouch with someone from the LA caravan, and then hop on the freeway with us!

i just hope this time the caravan works out right, where we clog the freeway up with BMW's not like last time where it was divided into 3 major groups, and like 9 tiny ones with in that.

watch for cops!!!!!

they aint as stupid as they smell

leeor
03-17-2009, 02:11 PM
THEYRE NOT DUMB. if were together or seperated they know when bimmerfest is... they knew when it was last year and were prepared. so it really doesnt matter... your like my dad latley hes been doing nothing but worrying about cops.

if were not doing anything stupid we wont get caught, and aslong as were in a bunch were safer...

they know everything... at 7 am what cop sits at the top of overpasses waiting for speeders? cmon.. be real. and when i got pulled over they mentioned it.

I got a ticket going there in a caravan from VCR (Village Coffee Roaster, you know the big sunday euro meet thing) I was leading the pack though and doing about 90 weaving through traffic with about 20 other mini's behind me =)

If you wanna keep 'em all together, call the Ventura group about 2 miles before you reach their on ramp. By the time the Ventura group gets on the freeway you'll be almost on them. They can drive a bit slow until the LA & OC group catch up and they can join into the caravan.

....and as for the police situation, as my friends license plate holder says.... "Pigs wright 'em, and I fight 'em!!" (No offense to any police officers who are driving their Bimmer up to Bimmerfest lol)

03-18-2009, 03:55 PM
as far as I know it still hasn't been organized. My guess is we are using the same spot as last time in the Valley

leeor
03-19-2009, 12:01 AM
same spot is a good idea... whoever organized it last year did a great job. right off the woodman exit... HUGE parking lot.. and better yet the only light to seperate the freeway is a right turn.....

i think its the best place... the lot was huge, i got pics and it was pretty much packed as big as it was.

well idk i was told it was better then '07 but i wasnt there to know.. 08 was my first!

We are starting to organize a meet for the Caravan to Santa Barbara at the Rose Bowl parking in Pasadena for the San Gabriel Valley and L.A. areas, then merge with the rest at the 101/405 intersection. Anybody interested in joining?

You'll know its me when you see the license plate that says "IRDSTIG"

leeor
03-29-2009, 07:52 PM
yea i think pasadena has nothing to do with the LA area, theres a lot of people from westwood, beverly hills, west hollywood, santa monica, and the whole valley area. we need that pasadena meet to hit up someone from an area closer to us again like last years location...

lol, damn that is a long drive. up to you!

i talked to the organizer of last years LA caravan, and he said that he's not planning it this year... so who is?!?

bimmerxtreme09
03-31-2009, 11:28 AM
How about if we just do the same schedule and location from last year for the L.A. Caravan and meet in the parking lot behind Ross at 6:30am,

located at:

13750 Riverside Dr.
Sherman Oaks, CA 91423

I will try to get the schedule and information for the other caravans from other places and we can all meet by 101/405 intersection and form a huge BMW caravan.

I just hope that everyone will cooperate and follow the LAW and not do maniac racing. The purpose of the caravan is to create a beautiful group of BMWs on the road.

What do you guys think?

leeor
04-01-2009, 09:59 AM
i think its set. Private message me? ill help you work the LA caravan!

Reminder: No one leave early. Someone coordinate the exits of the parking lot and once we get signal from the other caravans to merge, then we roll out and merge together. We should have the other caravan tell us where theyre at when we exit the parking lot so we both know to slow down or speed up (obeying traffic laws of course) so we merge.
