First reunion of the s. Florida bmw 355d afficionados

OK, all you S. Florida 335D's out there, we will hold the first reunion of "Afficionados" at the Weston Chevron (intersection Weston Road and Royal Palm) at 12 noon Saturday 17 Dec.

Be there... or don't!

Actually, Flyingman, Norty Norty and AlpineZ something or other will meet for some Venezuelan coffee, my treat!

We'll post some photos.

OK, The photos from the 1st Official S. Florida 335D meet up.

Flyingman (Black 2010), Norty Norty (Blue 2011) and A8540TDI (White 2011). AlpineZ300 had to take a pass this time.

Compared trim, tires, repair experiences. Good fun, good discussions.

I'll set up another one in January or February.

Be there or be square!

You are treating folks to Venezuelan coffee? Too bad I'm at the opposite end of the country.

Actually I think there are quite a few now. They just don't hang out on this site.

I used to get all excited if I saw one but not so much anymore.

I have no statistics on how many there are, but just on this site we must have close to 20 or so.

And Flordia is split up like Ca., with South, Central and Northern with about an 8 or more hour drive difference.

We'll see how many respond to the next meet up. I'll do better than a one day notice next time.

Yea I figured there were more than 3 in entire state. They are just so damn rare to see. I see maybe 1 per month around here. At lcoal BMW gatherings there might one other. At bimmerfest there were only 3 mine included.

What was interesting to see was how we were all so finicky about our 335ds. They were spotless and without any significant scratches or dings.

I know I go out of my way whenever I park to avoid being pinned in next to other cars, to avoid those door dings. Also to keep my car garaged and in the shade whenever possible.

I do that with all my cars, drives my wife crazy when I park farther away when there are much closer parking spots. She just doesn't get it.

No, it wasn't me! Havn't been in Coral Springs for a while. Did have to disciplin a frisky G35 on the way home, I think he was truly surprised by the d's acceleration in the sweet spot - 60-100, pulled about 3 lengths on him but was not prepared to go deep into triple digits, so let him pass after that.

My wife is the same as me...parks way away from everyone.

@TDI I had an infiniti GS37S, I guess thats what it was go after me and he was on my ass, being a large car i believe he was a V8 but when we came to a stop he was grinning maybe for the fact that he was on my tail or that my "D" was a surprise to him. I think both!!

DZLMAN, enjoy the warm weather and southern Hospitality! Coming down to vote in the primary, ehhh?

SC is still about an 8-10 hour drive North from S. Florida. You should just bite the bullet and come down the whole way, heck go all the way to Key West and wave at Cuba!

Guys, we should start planning our next meet up.

I'm suggesting the Carolina Ale House in Weston (corner Weston Rd and Royal Palm Blvd just off exit 15 I-75) one Saturday noon time in February.

Let me know what weekend works or if you want to propose another venue.

Cheers,

Hahaha no voting.....warmer weather for sure.........Golf and Ocean views...just have 4 days.....I wanted to go all the way but passengers were not as excited as I was about driving 24 hours straight so had to keep it under 15 hours
