Disappointed
 
I've been going to Bimmerfest since 2007 when it was at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara. Steve Dinan was there giving a seminar. I attended this year again but this will be my last. The event is just a shadow of its former self. Less and less vendors with this year appearing to be the least and attendance was sparse. It was nice though if you wanted to do a track day. It has become too expensive for what you get with nothing new to really see or experience anymore.
I recommend that the organizers take a couple of years off to think about how to make it better for those of us who don't go just to buy an event T-shirt.

I agree with you Mike. Everyone in the PNW caravan feels the same way. With Jon being gone, it really just was the last nail in the coffin.

This sub forum would normally be covered in car p o r n.
So sad.

This year was the first year I went to the event. I went to the event on Saturday. Although I have nothing to compare it to, the number of people and vendors there was less than I expected. Here are some pictures from the event.

This is the first year without John at the reins. We were lucky to have the privilege of seeing him in Santa Barbara during our caravan.

Bimmerfest and EAST are not the same anymore. There are now better events.
