Currently, yes. We'll see, I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for fun things. If something else really piques my interest I could sell, but right now I love this damn thing.

I did get the feeling BFE was more grassroots and true DIY and driving enthusiasts, whereas the BFR (that's Bimmerfest Real for you acronym deficient guys ) has become more showy.

I'm a BEE person, but I hear it both ways all the damn time.

BIM-er. Bee is for people that don't know what they're talking about.

And at least in my opinion(or maybe location) taking the 1 is so damn out of my way. Only cool part is meeting up with everyone. I took 5 home last year and it saved like 3 hours at least.

Ok, maybe it is 100% because of my location.
Hrm...... I'm not sure I can make it again

My little guy is 4 months now, and I'm not sure if he could make the 9 hour trip each way.....

I hope finals don't get in the way. If i'm all clear ill be there for sure and maybe I could win something crazy like I did in 2010 when I won the BMW experience trip that I never got the tickets for after calling the dealer who sponsored it multiple times. I haven't gone since then since things got in the way.
