Get together update! *Final*

Hello all of you SoCal owners. We are just a week away for our get together, Saturday March 16th. We have about 17 6-series owners with 6 or 7 M6s in the mix.

I will send out the information one more time via email late next week.

If you signed up you should have received an email with the information. If you have not received anything from me please let me know ASAP.

If you have not signed up and would like to here is the link.

I have created an online Calendar on Google docs. Please fill out your info and date preferences ASAP (click to link).

We'll do a meet and greet to swap stories, mods, coding, and such, grab lunch nearby and then a great drive up PCH.

Ouch that's brutal. The fenders are a composite(plastic) material and pretty flexible. I would guess those cracks are from a big impact with something like a tire mounted on the wheel. A hit with something hard would scratch the paint, and I cannot imagine how jacking could deform the fender enough to crack it like that.

Hopefully it's a stand-up shop and they are willing to fix the damage.

Yikes, I have never seen that one before, I could see where you would be tee'd off.

Hard to speculate what could cause something like that, car fell off the lift?

Wow! That is some serious damage. I hope that the shop responsible will stand up for the damage and that you are able to fix your head gasket. Good luck Nitrogen!

I have no way of proving it was the shop, that is my problem. The shop doesn't have a full lift, they just do one side at a time. I am thinking that jacking the car up on one side might put pressure on the fender and thus the crack. Oh well more reason to just go buy a new car. My cousin works in a body shop and is going to repair her soon. But it won't get fixed before this weekends get together. I am embarrassed to bring her with that blemish. But you never know I am a little crazy and I may still make the 5-6 hour drive hang out then drive back home. We will see!!!!

Hey Nitro,
This is not a concourse. We want to meet you not your car. No one is going to judge anything.
That sucks, but got your butt down here anyway. It'll be your last good trip before you get the new ride.

That may actually be from the spread sheet. They tend to autofill so once one was typed in the others may have filled in that way.

I think the car will be fine. Your family is another matter. If they have colds than you may be able to escape it. If they are really sick and you need to take care of them that's understood. Tough decision but I hope you can make it and have a good time. Besides, you need to see Zerocks1 new custom AEs in person.
