Love your car Joe. My son has almost a twin, but it's bone stock.

Hi Jon,

I can bring my 850CSI any time on Friday as needed. Stock with Euro side mirrors and Euro option wheel and tire fitment. (Photo at bottom of last year's Bimmerfest).

Gary,

850s are one of my personal favorite BMWs of all-time...

Even though they are relatively modern, I think the best placement would be in the 7:00 Segment (requires 6:30 am arrival).

Sound o.k.?

Sounds like an early morning wake-up call. I'll be there.

More specifically, it's a 1994 E31 S70, CSI #135 of 225 built for NA market. Cosmos black on black. CSI's are the special ///M version of the 8-series, although never badged as an M8. Only one true M8 exist and has been the subject of much folklore.

Hi, Jon, I was there last year, with two cars and our yellow 77 530 was featured in the broadcast as the previous year's winner....I also brought my 2004 M3 Mora Metallic/Kiwi leather interior, it's the one in the third photo you posted, to the left of the white one, my son also has a 1990 Diamond Black metallic 2.5L Alpha-N M3 it has been featured in trade magazines before it's the black one at right in the picture. Here's pic of Gayle doing her bit by our car. This one is in the shop but the others are available.(see photos attached)
Looking forward to another fabulous Bimmerfest!
Regards,

Nina

Hey Poorboysracing,
I am the Cameraman for this shoot. You have a unique story for this event. The fact that you are driving cross country to attend Bimmerfest is awesome. It would be great if you can make it before 7am. I have already told my reporter about you and she seemed interested in your story. We have 3 live segments scheduled at 715,815,and 915am. We record a segment for our 1pm broadcast around 930am. I will suggest to the reporter that she find time for you and your car somewhere during the morning.

Alright gang, according to our sources at KTLA Channel 5 Los Angeles, we are a "Go" for the LIVE BROADCAST one week from today (Friday, May 13th -- the day before BIMMERFEST)... The ONLY thing that could stop us now would be preemption due to either Natural Disaster (e.g., earthquake, fire, flood), or something socio-political ...

Please subscribe to this thread so that you can follow-up on our further announcements.

Please be aware that it is going to be an early start, so get plenty of sleep the night before...

EDIT: Reading fail. It was last year...

Hey Joe, you should mention who influenced your trip (kind of).


Oh and if you have ham and cheese, don't leave it in the cooler for too long.

What time would you want me there with my 2000 323ci? I need to ask at work if it's possible to come in later on fri, so if I know about when it would help. Also - got a friend with a 2006 530i who is interested as well - would that be the same time frame ? Please let me know, and I will ask about it at work asap. Thanks. :]
