Rally

I'm just wondering if there is going to be an official rally this time. The turnout was quite dissapointing...there were alot of people who left early because they didn't know that one was gonna happen. Weather it's official or not, i'll be there...and this time my car won't die on my

Maybe Law Enforcement will work with us this time so we can have a civil gathering. We could also do some self-policing and call out the "pit racers" to make sure things don't get out of hand. I really missed the rally this year, but I understand your feelings about keeping your conscious clear.

You've got plenty of time to get one ordered just the way you like it and then you'll be all set. Of course, you don't have to have a BMW to attend -- my first year attending my car was still on order, so I just ogled all of the other cars and bought accessories to add to my car after it arrived.

Yeah, it'd be great if the rally could be "Official" again this year. But if not, undercover flyers need to be passed out for the "unofficial" rally (not endorsed by Bimmerfest of course)

Well, there were flyers handed out but there were still so many people who didn't know it was going on, and they left way early because they thought it was all over. Those people make me laugh

I hope the rally is official, i have a burning desire to driver over 80mph thruogh the CA highways. the last time i came was the year the new 5 came out and my dad got one through profiles so the ride wasnt very fun cuz i was just 12 or 13 and i didnt get to drive.

Perhaps you could do TWO rallies in opposite directions. You could base rally direction on model designation per the registration info.


Seeing half of the other cars pass by would be sweet!

I'm only 18, does that mean i'm misguided

Naw, that was one stupid person. I would say that most people on here SHOULD have enough sence to be smart. What we should do is strap C4 to everyones car. If someone misbehaves....they're out of the rally

LOL i see my car in that gif. And yeah, that dumbass was stupid, he came really close to my car .

Anyways, i think to bring back the rally would be great, but we all know what can and might happen when u mix young'ens with fast cars and the want to show off.

Lets just hope

Understand that if Jon organizes a rally, Bimmerfest takes on some liability.

If someone else were to organize a rally, posting the info here (meeting time & place), as well as possibly passing out flyers at the event.... then Jon and Bimmerfest is safe.

That isn't RALLYing either, see my point? It's safe to say that 3/4 of Bimmerfest attendees don't frequent this message board.

OK....I will ask the question and bump this back up. Any new info on a "official" post-fest Drive.?....Do we need to organize a "Casual Classic Cruise" for the older set??
