Sweet! I'll be back in time for Bimmerfest, then.

Not driving across the country in my M3 for BFE, though. I don't have cruise control, so 8+ hours of driving per day is definitely no fun, especially on Billy's/H&R suspension.

Are you kidding? Just a half hour on 101 through South San Jose on that set up would be miserable.

Some of us are gluttons for punishment, though there is a limit for everything...

And that part right at the 280/680 & 101 junction was repaved a few months ago. Now it is fantastic!

I couldn't drive my car to BFE last year due to business travel but I was able to drop in for the day on the way back home. I paid my $20 and got in no problems with my (the embarassing part) Toyota Corolla rental car no issue. I parked way, way, way in the back out of pure shame, but no issues getting in.
The "offsite" parking at BFE is actually just across the street anyway unless something changes this year.

I've contemplated the idea. Need the show to be a lot bigger, though.

Maybe next year

I will be there.

Trav, it's not about the size of the show, it's all about the turnout of this subsection. Last year every one of the regulars (save Franklyn) was there. Well, turnout, and the driving. The whole 140 mile run to Philadelphia just to get Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches was awe inspiring. That and the d*uche in the Nissan...

The caravan was the most fun in this recent one for me

Hankook has pretty bad rain reviews, which isn't the biggest deal because I don't drive in the rain too often.

A lot of good things said about both. Looks like Dunlop might be a little better DD

Ah, the good times of (ahem) someone flying across all three lanes of traffic to leap in front of the first Audi they saw... Poor lady having just gotten on the highway.... ... ...

You can always take a trip out west and park in front of Chad's house. It's not like his Audi will ever work again...
