Many thanks to Eurofanatics.com for putting together the post Bimmerfest cruise. Had about 40-50 cars that did the route up the 101 highway to Los Olivos and then back to Santa Barbara via the 154 over San Marcos Pass. Great roads and very scenic. It sounds like it is going to be held again next year, so pass the word so we can get more Bimmers involved next year.

Agreed...minus the xB and Infiniti getting in the way for a bit it really was a nice "leisurely" cruise as advertised. I was in the white E39 with all the passengers and snapping pics. Once I get those from my buddy I'll post up in this thread.

It was a fun and mellow cruise. Everybody stayed in line and followed the lead car, and there seemed to be no police presence this year. Out of curiousity, were there any flyers handed out about the cruise? I did not see any myself and would have thought the turnout would have been better. We still had a nice line of cars, but I was expecting more. Lets get the word out and make this bigger next year.

And thanks for taking all the pics of the cruise; you got a few good ones of me. I was the guy you were following in the black E90 M3.


ps: Last time I did one of these (2007 I think?), we were followed the whole way by a police helicopter. Not good!

I got a flyer that said eurofanatics.com post cruise on my car. I was parked towards the Nitto booth and came in about 10am. If it wasn’t for the flyer I wouldn’t have known. I take it this is the first post cruise organized by eurofanatics?

I only found out about it because of the flyer. Got there at 5:08 and you guys were gone. :rofl: But I saw the white/black M3 show up after and we both mobbed to catch up to you guys.

I should have pics by the end of the week.

Yea, we had to get a move on, glad you guys were able to catch up though.

The pics look great a couple posts up and I can't wait to see yours.

I hope I can make the cruise even bigger next year. For those of you who went, I think you can attest to the great views coming down the 154.
