Any suggestions on brake fluid I should go with? And is there anyplace local that sells it. I hate paying shipping on one item. Oh and what's full refill capacity on our cars?

Agree. Even on race pads it's tough to boil.

Edit: and if that's not good enough there's RBF 660 and Castrol SRF.

Grills and headlight inserts are now plasti dipped. Now I gotta buy new turn signals with black trim instead of silver, and sell the old ones. I think it will look a ton better

I have stainless braided brake lines that are coated in some sort of plastic, I think they are aftermarket, they came on my car.

If we do organize something I will post it on here, M3forum, bimmerforums, cca forum, etc. It would get plenty of exposure. That's why I think we need to finalize the details so we can start getting the word out.

Ok, well who has a big enough place to do it at? Does everybody prefer a saturday or a sunday? Gonna cruise before hand? Maybe do a tech day where we get all of these repairs out of the way? Then have the main body of the meet later in the evening.

I'm honestly fine with either day, as long as its a few weeks in advance I wont have much else going on i'm sure. BBQ guy just needs like a week of advance and an approximate number of people. We just pay for the food cost, which is about 30$ a brisket, so thats no big deal.

If you guys can set a date down soon I will try to get as many STL guys to come up. Sometime this fall we should try to get another meet like the one in March.

I doubt there is a house big enough, we had talked about using a public park.

My house always passes as big enough, but I was thinking heritage park.

Hmm, that could work. Would any shops let us use their lot and lobby? In the next few weeks it wont be as miserable outside as it has been, so no need to have it indoors.

As many places as I'm gonna post this up I'm hoping to have 50+ people so your house wont work. When you mention food people always come out of the wood work.

Not any that I know of. Kendalls lot and "lobby" are both to small and Baron has a hard time even helping the BMW club out with things like this. There are dozens of large covered shelters out at heritage park and if we use one of the ones in the back we will pretty much be by ourselves.

As far as I can tell, we'd need to rent the shelter to avoid any chance of being kicked out?

FULL DAYS: 8:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. = Medium = $65 ($99 ) Large = $95 ($143 )

And then you figure in the price of food for 50+ and you're looking at maybe a 100$ or more there.
