Who stayed at the DAYS INN??

It was great meeting the group from Lancaster, PA.

I adored the black on black Z3 M coupe in the parking lot and I think the blue E46 from Quebec had the best rims IMO.

Yeah the 7 was nice. He had a funny sticker on the side. In icons, translated to Eat, Sleep, BMW.

Nice to meet you guys - pool party was fun.

Yeah the E34 touring with the sport edition rims was pretty nice too. I thought about editing my post to comment on that one actually.

Part of the Lancaster crew (our town is actually Denver, but no one knows the place haha).

Nice to meet everyone at the hotel, I loved when we rolled in late Friday and the lot was full of Bmws, I knew then that it would be an awesome weekend and it was!

Sorry we hogged the pool from your kids, next time I'll try to get the other guys to share a bit better.

LOL. No problem man - we enjoyed the BMW company; it wasn't hogging. Yeah I snapped one or two pics Saturday evening after the pool. I'll have to upload them tomorrow.

Bimmerfest is definitely a unique experience for a longtime BMW guy that I'm now addicted to. I will definitely be back next year.

Woah. No idea Jon! I'm sure you were busy but we would've loved to have caught some ear time with you.

Nevertheless, WE LOVED BIMMERFEST EAST. You did an outstanding job with the location, vendors, etc. I can't believe the turnout for the 1st run mostly because the last run of the West Coast one had roughly the same numbers on the registration stats and that's been running for a few years now.

My wife and kids loved it and we got to spend some time in Baltimore's Inner Harbor on Sunday as well. Hopefully by next year I'll have some new headlight lenses so I won't be shamed into parking as far from the show as possible. LOL.

But again - THANK YOU - this was a pleasure.

No, it was my pleasure.. Glad you had a good time.

I was on the ground floor in the back of the building on the right. Now that I have seen the layout, I hope to stay a little closer by, say the Mariott right across from the stadium...

jon, I wanted to find you to have a few drinks but didnt know what room you were in. mariott sounds like a good plan(days inn is kinda beat). I 2nd the turnout. it was amazing to see sooo many bmw's in one location. And it was a great show with great people, anyone i tried to talk to was more than happy to do so, unlike some other euro events where the vw/audi guys are douche bags. i dont think i herd of anyone not liking the event, so only up from here

and jon, one more thing...i think its amazing that you could probably have any bmw that you want, and you chose to drive an e36 M3 !

I stayed at Days Inn but didnt like the room at all. Had a death match with a mega fly and almost lost. Banged my foot on wall unit trying to kill a fly. Down goes Frazier.Sorry I didnt get to meet any of you but was just dead tired. Like my sticker says, eat, sleep, BMW

It's a beauty. I love those rims. Back in the day I had ADR Motorsport racing rims on my E36 coupe. and they reminded me of them. They were my favorite set of wheels I've ever had.
