What was with all the random cars mixed in with BMWs? I saw Toyotas, Audis, etc. It's cool if other makes show up, but have a dedicated section for them. It's BIMMERfest people!

I think they tried separating it as much as they could but some people just wanted to park with the crowd. And when you have friends with other makes that make time to come out and support the Bimmerfest, I don't see why they shouldn't be able to park with everyone else.

I don't know what the deal was with doubling the entry fee before 9am. Not happy about that at all. On the positive side, it was a great venue, at least in terms of space and accessibility. Also, always good to see members - both the OGs like Jon/Nick (JleviSW) and Jojo/Mike (DPE) and others like SouthPaw, Deafboy, Outlaw333, AznAzasin and 4ngie herself. And I love that new Z4 even more after seeing it in person.

EDIT: Eh, I just read the event details and there's a blurb about "concourse parking" being $40 vs. the $20 general parking :banghead.
Darn Shinobi I didn't know you were there. Funny thing I think I'm in one of your bleacher shots.
I really didn't see anyone except Peter from VMR.
Don't get me started on the parking. Last year I got stuck at the stables, this year there were rows and rows of grass parking. I got stuck on the first row where everyone drives in on the dirt. Needless to say my car was once again covered in dust and where no one viewed cars. Pretty funny when I think about it. Other than that this venue was 100x better than the past. My friend took a load of pictures, be up tomorrow.

A friend and I flew in and drove a rental car from LAX...the parking goons said park here (in the group) even after I said I did not want too. I was kind of bothered by that

You or your car? Yea, I rolled in shinobi-like, avoiding the caravans this year and on my own. None of my BMW buddies go anymore. They either prefer to attend a racing event or avoid it altogether since its not what it used to be. This was my 7th one, and its definitely different, but things change (some for the better, some for the worse). Can't please everyone.

Yea, I thought it was kinda weird to see mini-vans, chevys, toyotas, etc mixed in. I personally don't like to see any other make other than BMWs (and MINIs) at "Bimmerfest". I mean, c'mon...
