What lot can we actually park at if we're non BMW? I've asked this question in another thread but no one involved with the show could give me a clear or direct answer. If there are lots that we can park in, how does the pricing go? Pay for parking plus 10 dollar entrance fee? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Can there be an exception to the rule? For example my friend has a really nice looking G8 White dropped on Tein full coilover suspension DPE's vinyled roof ....... or is it pretty much set in stone? Just wondering

I think when you arrive to the show, the parking attendants will see that your car is missing a BMW emblem and direct you to the appropriate parking space. In my opinion, that would be the 210W. Just kidding

Do you really want all the attention of driving a non-BMW to the show? What's the point in doing that? Last year we had rusty-ass integra park with all the BMWs. Everyone had a WTF moment as these ricers pulled in. It was definitely awkward for them

This car is not ricer nor does it look like crap. It looks better than half of the BMW's that show ... Thats why I'm asking. If it's a really nicely modded car is it possible to pass through? If it cant thats fine and I understand. This Bimmerfest after all I was just curious and wanted to ask for a friend.

No one said anything negative about your friends Pontiac i do like the body style of the G8 for a domestic but its called Bimmerfest I would never think about bringing my ride to a show called Pontiacfest. Thats just my 2 cent no insults intended anyways can you post a pic of this G8 I wanna looksie.

I agree, only BMW's should park together, I was pissed when I saw a truck, honda, ricer etc etc mixed in with BMW's. sh!t, im bringing my Audi and I wont be parking near the BMW's.

I guess the parking staff needs to be made aware of this and tell everyone that has a non-BMW car to park else where.

Right-O. Nothing against G8s, or even tastefully-modified imports (japanese imports), but this is a BMW event-period. Come enjoy the show with us, just understand that only BMWs are parking in the main areas

Sounds sweet. If you guys ever do Pontifest, let me know. Sounds like a nice car.

It's Bimmerfest not Ricerfest. Seems pretty clear to me!
