Jon, probably for the millionth time, thanks for coordinating an incredible '09 Bimmerfest event which was pretty stellar.
I made a decision to go to Bimerfest '09 based on your encouraging post regarding the weather forecast for Santa Barbara.
The weather and event was indeed perfect in every way.

I took pics of a Bimmer that caught my interest that might lead to the farthest traveled Bimmerfest '09 participant/s arriving from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Hope this helps.

I got a glimpse of the VF M3 owned by Eric S on the side of the 101 with a CHP behind him on the way home. I hope he didn't get a ticket.

So many amazing cars hard to narrow it down to just a select few, I'm glad I don't have that task. Jon, as always great show, I can say IMO this was the best venue yet, I have zero complaints this year (other then the "super awesome cool" guys across from the Legion that had to start their cars every 15 minutes and just sit there and rev them up with those badass looks on their face, but that has nothing to do with the actual show...). Thank you Jon and your staff for doing this once again, this is the 1 thing every year that I can count on to have a great weekend, it gives me something to look forward to with anticipation.

Here is a shot of my E21 taken by SpasticDwarf

CJ Viola's award-winning car on 101N after the photoshoot at the HS:


Here's a link to the original, CJ. Can't get much more detail on your car when it's blown up more though, unfortunately.

Kelly Collins' award-winning Dakar Yellow II E46 M3:




First person to notice what changed on Kelly's car between the show and the drive home wins... nothing.

M3 badge!

And it's great to see the awards going to something other than 47 LCD speaker wagons. This goes a LONG way to legitimizing the event even further. Props to the judges!
