It depends on where you will be living in the metro, but there are 3 places that do great work.

JB Eurotech in New Brighton
Imola Motorsport in Golden Valley
Orr Autosport in Eden Prairie

There's a newer place called Eurosport of Wayzata that just popped up. Don't know much about them. Kinda curious who they are and what they're like.

Because it's insane. That kind of power and speed comes with a price.

I didn't know that there were so many of us M owners around. We should plan a drive come early spring.

Fvck the snow. I'm down for a drive through up to and including 9 inches of snow.

Above 9 inches of snow is where I run into ground clearance issues...

Occasionally stuff comes up for drives and get-togethers. There's usually stuff posted on MNBMW.com too for meets.

Back in 2006-2009, we had some great meets.

I'd bet as it warms up more people will check in online on both sites...

...We have a pretty decent number of enthusiasts around the cities, but they're very busy, so it seems...
