Yes, it has been asked. The answer is no, because it is too difficult and there is not really enough room.

Basically, we just park in the parking spaces in the order we arrive.

What he said!

I should have been more specific. Since I'm staying at the Ramada with many other bimmerfesters, I suspect that many of us will drive from the hotel at the same time and park together.

Cliff, if you're taking the Z4, PM me. There's a Z gathering before the fest.

Yeah, that's an easy decision. I'm bringing the Phoenix Yellow M coupe. I enjoy the notoriety.

Maybe I can park in the Phoenix Yellow section (apologies to the original poster)

I'll already be in SB the day of the event (not to mention the day prior), so I won't be able to hook up with you guys for breakfast. I have PM'd you my cell number - give me a call once you guys arrive at the showgrounds.

That number has gone to 17 since you posted this. If I had to predict the future, I would expect to see at least twice that many E60's at the show. The E60 is not an uncommon car.

(I still don't know who is driving the 3rd E86M - Earl is bringing his and I'll be bringing mine...)

You could always make a thread inquiring.

As said above, the best thing to do is meet up at the hotel with the people around you and caravan over to the grounds that morning.
