Any of y'all ever attended Bimmerfest? Just wondering if it would be worth the drive out from the Hi Dez.

Re: OFFICIAL:Socal Chat Thread...

As we all know BimmerFest is on next Saturday May 18th, I think it will be a perfect opportunity for all the owners in So Cal (SD, IRVINE/ OC/ LA / LB & IE) get together. I'd like to see how big it will turn out.
So here it is, Saturday, May 18th @ 7 PM in Tustin

The Best Buy parking lot off of Jamboree and El Camino Real https://maps.google.com/maps?q=33.721831,+-117.793966

We can meet & greet then possibly cruise along the PCH or Canyon Road (Some1 please suggest a cruise route). Bring your wife, g/f, ex g/f , future g/f or friend's g/f along . I will be bringing my camera and take some pictures of all the F30 in Socal. Please reply or RSVP here http://www.f30post.com/forums/calend...=2013-5-18&c=1 so we know how many are coming, and spread the words!!!

The Ikea meeting is for those who want to caravan to the Bimmerfest event, this is at night for those who couldn't make the bimmerfest and want to hang out.

I didn't see any meeting organized for the SoCal region when I searched, you might be confusing with the caravan meeting for bimmerfest?

Hello,

I'm a new BMW owner I live in Irvine and I'm looking for meet ups, canyon driving events, and track days.

Also, a good shop that doesn't cater to the caviar and yacht set would be killer.

Thank you,

Hey, check out JP european in Huntington Beach. The guy knows his stuff and is very reasonable. MOre reasonable than 99% of the BMW shops. He only works on European cars and saved me bunch of times with all of my cars.

Hey, thanks for the tip! Have you heard of GSR in Lake Forest? They are true race tuners and seem to be pretty fair on the repair front. They had some really amazing cars in the shop including a 750 HP Z4 drift car!!!

They are good, but very pricy.

the reason i ask is b/c on my audi forum - our socal section is very lively and the chatterbox and sightings threads are among the most popular.

not sure how that works with california as a whole vs socal & norcal sections.

but this is vBulletin!
