Meleni,
If you can be there by 630am, that would be great. Our first live shot will be around 715am. I hope to see you there.

Assuming my flight for work comes in on Thursday night, I'll be there w/ my stock M3. It won't be front page news, but should add to the crowd at least. However, I'll have to leave by noon or 1pm.

Dinan E28 M5

I'd like to show my E28 M5 w/ Dinan Stroker motor and AC Schnitzer body kit but only 80% complete in my detailing. She is a daily driver and front bumper had 2 years worth of stone chips etc....

I'll try and rush and see if I can make up from San Diego. I got a hotel in Pasadena but didn't plan to check in unitl early evening.

Thanks

Sorry, we don't have a list compiled for the BoB yet... I'll look into doing that in advance of the show, but lots of people are still signing up.

If anyone is interested in competing, PLEASE sign up asap!

The Corral is in a prime location on grass!

Mein Auto: 135i
Hi Jon,


It would be my first bimmerfest since I have just recently switched over to BMW's. But I have a brand new 2011 loaded 135i that still has dealer plates on it and etc. Would you like that for the 9am brand new stock cars segment?

P.S. I can't make 6:15 but I can be there by around 7:30.

Yes to everyone, the only question is which segment you fit into....

I am starting to get a little bit excited...

KTLA Bimmerfest Live for May 13th

Greetings Everyone,
Here is the latest info from the KTLA Newsroom. As of 3pm today, everything is still a "go" for tomorrow morning. It seems like we are going to have a great turnout on Friday morning. Please try to be there by 615am. I will try to be there by 6am. Look for the silver e39 with the Bimmerfest decal on the windshield. Let's try to meet near the Rose Bowl sign on the south side of the stadium. If you can't make it by 615 am, be there when you can. Our live shots will be at approximately 715,815,and 915am. We will also being doing a few 10-15 second "teaser" shots throughout the morning. Please be respectful and keep the noise levels down. We do not want to anger the neighbors near the Rose Bowl. Pray to the BMW Gods that there is no major "breaking news" tomorrow morning. Otherwise, our segments will be in jeopardy. I forgot to mention that we pre record our 1pm segment around 930am. We should be wrapped around 10am. See you in the morning.
Dave Lopez KTLA Television
