Are you guys bringing spouses or significant others? My wife is not as big an "enthusiast" as I.

My wife is not going...yea she's not such a fan. I wish my son could come (he came on my ED trip 3 years ago) but he's 9 and he can't stay alone during the day and they won't let him come in the car....so I'll be solo.

I'm going to be with my wife. So I may not be able to join you for dinner and drinks. But if you see me, grab me and I'll see what I can do - and I'll definitely try and catch up over lunch during PCD.

My PCD is supposed to happen on 5/11, but I will be at the Marriott the evening of 5/13 following the 1 day Car Control Clinic. Would be nice to join the rest of you and share PCD impressions if you like, or just help down some adult beverages.

Sounds like we can have a nice little meeting Sunday evening. Let's plan on around 8:30pm at the Marriott for dinner & drinks.

We can also meet at lunch too if everyone can't meet or make it Sunday evening. I'll definitely be there if my flights are on time.

You can call and ship it to the Marriott or send it to us. Just make sure you include something with it that gives your name, delivery date and VIN or Production # so that we can put it with the correct vehicle.

Our address is:

BMW Performance Center
ATTN: Delivery Department
1155 Highway 101 South
Greer, SC 29651

Let me know if you need anything else

Should we all wear BMW hats or some identifying feature so we know who we are? I'm trying to catch an earlier flight but if not I'll arrive in GSP at 7:52pm. When is everybody else arriving?

I likely won't be able to join for dinner since I'll be with my wife. But definitely would love to see you guys at breakfast and lunch. Here's my picture - http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=610350 Feel free to say hello if you see me.

I'm happy to make the reservation for breakfast - say 45 min before we are supposed to leave the hotel? I'll make it under "Bimmerfest". Let me know on this post how many in your party.

Chris S,

That's perfect. I'll be at breakfast say around 7-7:15am? We are leaving at 7:45am right with the shuttle picking us up then. Just me.
So if I'm reading your post correctly, this PCD is a re-delivery of your ED in March?
I did ED with my then 6 year old son in March 2009.

Chris W

Cool! I'll be the non asian (caucasian) in the restaurant...bourbon huh? What's your pleasure? I heard it's a dry county...may not be able to imbibe adult beverages? I'll try to sneak a few little bottles in.

And I'll get a table for 4 at 7am for Bimmerfest. No need to be there on the dot - just come as you ready.

The county isn't dry except on Sundays. You can buy at the ABC store M-Sa. In some places you can get drinks by the glass at restaurants on Sundays, but not at the hotel. N4S

Getting ready to go. Flight at 2:10pm from Indianapolis. Looks like I'll get to watch the Pacers Heat game at the Atlanta airport. So looking forward to this. I pulled out my old ED paperwork and folder from the Welt to use for this trip. Seems just like yesterday I was flying to Munich to get my first BMW.

Looking forward to meeting you guys. See you at dinner and breakfast....unfortunately weather forecast isn't looking so hot.

Had a terrific time meeting soledoc and chrisc at my pcd.

GREAT time driving someone else's M3 during the exercises.

I wish I got to drift the M3 on the skid pad, but I guess I shouldn't complain about using a new 3 series instead.

Donnie, my instructor/coach, was awesome....makes me appreciate how much skill the professionals really have.

My wife said it was likely that you were going to sleep with your car last night. She said you love that M3.

Great meating you both. I had a blast. It was a wonderful experience and amazing drive home through the mountains. Got to do the Tail later that day in my new car. It's now safely at home. I think about what my instructor Andy taught me know all the time when I'm in the car. I'm definitely already a little bit better driver because of him.
