Fanatics in the Pensacola, FL area???

Hey any fanatics in the Pensacola/Escambia county area??

I'm planning on doing a 4.10 diff swap, and would love some help if anyone enjoys working on cars! As a plus, it will be on a military base so you'd get to see cool planes and stuff!

Also, are there any local meets around here? I just moved in, and would love to meet some local fanatics. Thanks!

EDIT:

The meet would be June 4th, 2011, at 10am CST at the Naval Aviation Museum parking lot on base at NAS Pensacola.

Address: 1750 Radford Blvd, Pensacola, FL, 32508

The museum is awesome, and if you haven't been there you really should check it out. Other than that, we'd be hanging out in the super huge parking lot, or we could move to the on base beach parking lot and hangout there. Would be a great time if we got a bunch of people to come!

The base is open to the general public from 9am CST to 5pm CST because the museum is on base. Just need a picture ID to get on. Post up if you're interested in going!

Same details are in this thread:
http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=844237





Bump bump. Anyone at all in the area? Lol

No I found that it's most likely already a 4.10 gear! The rpm/speed comparison matches a 4.10, not a 3.whatever. So that would explain the noises if it wasn't an exact fit and they Jimmy rigged it in there. Either way I dont have the cash right now anyway haha.

Anyway yeah a local meet would be sick. There's two guys over at egland Afb who also own m3's. We should do a beach day weekend meet! I live on NAS Pensacola.

Awesome man! Looks like we got about 4-5 of us total. Would make for a decent meet up. I know I could use some maintenance advice and I'd love to see what mods everyone else has done on their bmw's!

Would everyone be up to do a meet in June on a saturday or something?

Maybe the beginning of June. I'm actually hoping to get a teaching job back down in Central Florida so I might be leaving soon.

Sweet lets set a tentative Pensacola meet day of June 4th!

As for a meeting location, I have an idea. I live on NAS Pensacola (navy base), and I know for a fact the national naval aviation museum located on base is open on weekends and the general public are allowed on base to visit it. The parking lot there is massive, and it's right next to an active runway (omg cool planes!), and the museum has all sorts of cool plane stuff inside it. I think it would make an ideal meet spot. The museum serves food and has bathrooms as well. Free admission, but we don't even have to go in there. There's all sorts of parking lots all over the base and we have our own beach too.

Thoughts?

Sounds Good man! I am curious to hear your Borla exhaust in person since that was one of my first choices before I went with the Eisenmann Sport. Just let us know what time.

Hi from Crestview, FL
I'll try to be there also!
I propose anyone who has any e46 parts or related for sale or trade to bring them on the meet too. Who knows who would need this or that....
You can even post if you want such things for sale here first.
