Let's see first how many BMW D cars are around. The winter is coming and I don't know if there will be a nice weekend ahead for a meet.
We can setup a BMW D meet after the winter let's say in March for example.
I'll post a meet thread when the time comes and we can negotiate the date and the location. Stay tuned
BTW my name is Tony, I am European and can say I am glad that I am not the only one who appreciates and takes advantage of the hi-tech German diesel technology

It is European!
I share the idea to be different plus I used to drive Audi A4 TDI back in Europe years ago, and I love the diesel cars.
I was a long wait to get BMW diesel here in US, and I can't be more than happy to finally have it!

We can make the same meet and trip and call it "The cloudless Ultimate Oil Burners in the clouds"

I wanted to go this year but was preparing for our 1 month ED trip to get the 335d. That plus I was selling my E90330i at the time.

Nothing beats the d going uphill!

Yes, we have to start thinking about a Sunday date for the meet. I also rent an apartment. We can pick some public park for the meet, or another option is if any of the owners with a house and a yard is willing to host the BMW diesel-BBQ meet.
Whoever is interested to join the event, please reply so we can count how many eventual participants we might have. Thanks

Other thoughts: if the gasoline prices keep climbing, we might expect much wider range of diesel powered cars on the US market. Talking about BMW diesel, 320d manual transmission would be nice. If they bring it on, this would be the only car that would make me think of retiring my E46 M3

Anyone on this thread going to C2C3 on June 11?

I'll be there.

I have not seen another 335d since my ED trip last July.

What does the 3 stand for? I plan on going this year as well. Too bad we can't get the mountain to ourselves afterward!
