Ive been an enthusiast for a while now but this was actually my 1st bimmerfest. Thank you Matt (umnitza) for having my car over at your booth.

It's always great to meet so many guys and seeing all the different flavors of BMW stylings. Thank you to everyone that stopped by and said hello. It was great meeting all you guys finally!

some more pics...

My car, James car(3rd place Best Modified) and Pablo's car.



My car...



James Demitt... congrats man!


Project M3 in European car magazine. I was drooling over his engine bay.


Aside from the awesome race cars and classic BMWs, this is one of the coolest thing I saw at the show.. Pablo's engine bay.


boosted 6 series


Thank you Jon and everyone involve. Can't wait for the next time, I think we need an even bigger spot for next year. Great times.

Keith, thanks for hosting an awesome par-tay at the E-Bar, and thanks for
the bottle of vino too...

If only I hadn't gone sleepless Friday Night I might have had enough energy
to sustain myself for what I hear was an interesting evening at Sharkeez...

My girl and I had a blast. This was our first bimmerfest and our first BMW Event period. We're definately coming back next year. The rally was the best part. Seeing that many BMW's in one place was unreal. I'm happy to see that so many people take pride in their ultimate driving machines. It was too bad that the CHP had to hold us up. It really sucks for the two that got pulled over. Jon thanks for you and your crew putting this together and keeping it alive. And of course thanx to all who did attend. This event wouldn't have been as awesome without everyone who showed up. Here are the last of my pix...till next year...

Wow. I must say I'm impressed at your ability to be a complete jerk. The better way to phrase your post would have been "wow, did you guys see that poor guy with the white e36. That car must be totalled. I wonder what happened. Hope everyone was ok."

And yes, you are wrong. An LSB e46 M3 cut him off and likely would have hit him, causing a much large accident, had he not swerved and layed on the brakes. Unfortunatly the only place to swerve to had a median in it.
