Not sure, but I plan to do so; at the event I saw someone remove their plates (smart, if concerning to them).

Masking plates en mass is a timesink and very nice of octopump and others to do.

And perhaps Bimmerfest or a paying vendor can provide us with license plate paper covers for the next event with their logo/ name.
It will serve both as sort of a "watermark" in the image and to save us time so we don't have to mask in post-processing.



DINAN_GT's pics are up as well now.

ALSO: Does anyone know the name of the color of the 2013 M5? Very complex and dark in person...


I suggested the same idea above.

This idea can be monetized.

For the next meet, we can use that to pick and pay for a nice venue. I already created a thread to discuss the next meet. http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=685052

Great pics. It looks like it was a great event. I am so pissed that I had to miss this time due to cold. Next time, I'll def be there. Hopefully it won't be too far apart.

What's up with the police?

Great pics by everyone - Thanks for sharing! Many thanks to those who have painstakingly edited out the plates in each shot.

Although going through each shot to mask the plates is not fun, I wouldn't recommend covering plates in a public space, especially en masse. Unfortunately, it's illegal in NY/NJ and any Law Enforcement Officer in view would have a field day writing out dozens of tickets. Nothing ruins a meet more than a ticket blitz.

I wonder about Private property?...In any case BriteWerks Auto Detailing will provide license plate covers for the next meet. Free if returned(deposit), $3 if you keep it.

Looks like a good turnout. I wanted to make it out there, but didn't finish rolling my fenders until like 3pm. Will try for the next one though.

I'd say a pretty darn good turn out despite the temps being colder. It was really the wind that made it feel colder than it was.

Luckily there were two park police cars there. I heard one of them was being a total c*ck while the other guy was pretty cool and just hung around. I heard he was trying to give one of the F10 guys a ticket for expired registration and was claiming a few of the cars were "racing". I was there the whole time and nobody was racing. He started chasing down some of the cars that were just trying to leave driving along the road.

What's up with the police?

That cop in the shots was just waiting to give someone a ticket, "I already gave a warning once" he said to me when I spoke with him.
But there was another cruiser with tow LEOs and by contrast, they were really nice and stopped by to admire the cars.

Who owns the orange E92? You've got a bid!

^^ he was probably bored out of his mind all month and all of a sudden thought he imagined some action (cars racing) and had to take action. The look on his face looked like he had something jammed up his ****......sideways.

P.S. Does anyone the name of the guy with the 550i DINAN who left before taking the shot (he had carbon fiber eyelids, carbon fiber front and rear diffuser,and a DINAN window sticker)

I'll make sure my car is actually washed for the next meet!

Great pictures.

Regarding the license plate covers, see attached for a novel idea. Easy to identify who each person is and cover up the plates. I created this a while ago, so I totally forgot what the website was.

Looks good. Now just to remember, we're you the one who had the DINAN 550i with the window sticker and H&R springs?

that is federal land patrolled by u.s. park police ,some of whom have a reputatation for sometimes being overly aggressive for minor issues.
nypd also has special units, located at that field. in addition, right off the belt pkwy at flatbush ave is a nypd highway patrol base.
just so everyone is aware. an above average law enforcement presense exists at, or is close by to that location.
something to be aware of, if there are plans to return in the future.
