How did you end up not going in ? Didn't we both left at the same time at the meeting spot ? I got there with the oc caravan and we waited at the park for like 10 min for others to get there too.

We usually get full by 10 and have to shut down the gates for a while, once people start leaving around 11 or noon we can open the gates back up

That's what happened last year

ET blew on Thursday afternoon. Got car towed home. Friday I replaced the thermo, ET, all hoses, coolant, sensors, etc.... had issues with upper hose, went back to dealer Friday night, got back home, changed it out. Took the car out for a spin, overheating ensued.... Had enough at that point, it was 7:30pm at night before I was safely able to get the car back home. Car was a mess, dirty as hell, still overheating.....

Saturday morning had to bleed it several times to get the air out of the line (used Mango's bleeding, worked like a charm).....

Just didn't want to rush it and get stranded again at the rose bowl

Needed to get my car up and running again.....

Sorry I didn't see FB, I saw that you got everything installed, perhaps I texted the wrong chad because a "chad" said he was at the gates at bimmerfest I thought it was you

How is the car doing today? awaiting parts or running?

I almost just decided to bring the mini, but tiff had to go into work for a couple hours...... so that left me carless at that point. Got the car up and running saturday morning, but it was a little to late and didn't want to push it.
