There are no tickets, you just pay as you enter. If you haven't registered online yet please do so here -

http://www.bimmerfest.com/event.php?...ration&EvId=11

You will find most of the details on the show at that link as well.

I was hesitant at first also, but it goes to charity (Unity Shoppe.) I can't complain!

Jon, the master mind and starter of Bimmerfest, is a good guy and every year the proceeds from the raffle go to various charity organizations.

i doubt all of it is going to charity. they still got to pay for the lot, the parking attendants and other stuff.

Last year was $10. Our fees have gone up substantially as we are renting more real estate. We have also hired double the staff. You should spend ten months of the year preparing for an event like this, and then report back to us how rich you got off of it...



P.S. You still get a free ticket as well as a free poster that Turner Motorsports retails on their site for $10.

Lastly, try this experiment. Call your insurance guy tomorrow and ask him for a quote to host a BMW car show with approximately 1,500 cars / 5,000 guests, and then put a pencil to your numbers again. This is the 8th year of Bimmerfest, and only the second time anyone has been charged to attend. I just spent 50 bucks filling up my tank. Nevermind. You won't get it...

I appreciate all you do to put this on. It's obvious that Bimmerfest is a labor of love not profit. BTW, it only cost you $50 to fill up your car. My Alpina has a 110 liter gas tank. My last fill up was $75.
