Just spent three hours washing her. Used a clay bar and the caranuba-Looks and feels pretty damn good.

I cleaned and polished all day last Sunday and kept it in the garage. Bummer I didn't drive it all week, but at least I was able to have a stogie or two driving the truck. Ready for Bimmerfest 2008!

THANKS FOR THE PEOPLE THAT PARTICIPATED IN THE IE CARAVAN. I didn't expect to have almost 30 cars. Only downfall was the LA caravan. People started leaving before they should have so it pretty much split. HOPE next year we can recruit more people.

Awesome Time!

I had an awesome time at bimmerfest! I thought that the caravan from IE went great! It was a lot more fun than I had expected, and I can't wait until next year. I think that I remember coming along side of you just south of Santa Barbara as I ended up getting behind a lot of the caravan from Los Angeles and had some catching up to do.

im not saying it was your fault. It's just that we didn't have no way of communicating with everyone. Next year we need a mic.

We definitely need a mic or loudspeaker kind of thing. That would help.

I had fun, although you were right about the LA thing. Everyone started leaving, so the LA organizer came up to me and said the OC and SD caravan was running behind, as a result everyone was leaving. I slowed down during different patches to run with a few different groups.
