C'mon.... I find it hard to believe there are only two people from here. I was hoping to plan a get together a couple times a year. Something where we could share our passion and knowledge of the cars we love to drive...

Good deal. Silly question, but, when you visit do you fly or drive?

I am in the East lansing area and looking for someone qualified to do some mechanical work on my 2003 325i. Anyone on here know of someone. I don't mind driving some distance if someone that is a good mechanic.

Ypsilanti here....been doing most of the wrenching on my car by myself. Most of it's pretty straightforward and there are lots of tutorials available if you need a little guidance. Bad time of year, but a get together of some sort when the weather gets better (July? ) would be cool...
