    I'd be interested in getting a meet together. When I lived in NJ, we had no problem getting a huge e30 meet going, kinda miss that out here.

    You're in the Kalamazooish area? I've got some guys at work interested, so just between me and them I'd be able to get:
    BMW M coupe
    BMW R90S
    Ducati 696 Monster
    Audi S4 (B5)

    Me and the B5 are gonna try some local advertising at car dealerships as well, talk to some salesmen, post flyers, whatever it takes

    No, I'm in Grand Blanc but I'd be willing to take a drive when it gets nicer out, I have a buddy with a clean '99 m3 coupe that would come with me.

    alright, sounds great! Spread the word, I think ideally we would get an email mailing list going to remind everyone, or if dates / times / locations vary

    Didn't realize you were in Mi, what happened to the e30? Hopefully my m3 will have its new shoes by then.

    I want to take a ride in DSrugis' s/c m3.

    Sure we could work out a time that's good for most of us, I'm a bit
    far from Kalamzoo as well.

    Yeah, we'll definitely figure out a time that works for everyone. The other guy that's helping me set this up discussed this meet with the local Audi dealership, sounds like they'd be willing to bring a few cars. I'll hit up other surrounding dealerships as well.

    i know dave (dsurgis), my friend matt and I are all near rochester. i have my beater, dave has the alpine M3/4/5 with the vortech, and my friend matt has a '76 metric mechanic '02. might be kinda far away for us though. maybe if you set up one or two larger meets, that might add some motivation for some guys like us. lol.

    +1 on the larger meets. Originally we were thinking like a weekly get-together, but I doubt that's going to be successful right off the bat. Ideally we're going to try to make this first meet as large as possible. I'd like to try to get an email contact list going, that way we'll know how many people are for sure going to show up.

    Awesome, I'm working on a flyer right now, (post it up everywhere), gonna hit up some local dealerships within the next few days, get them involved, and i'll also get on some other car forums as well, spread the word. Should be good!

    I'm assuming you're a member of KZOORICE.com? If not, definitely sign up. It's a Kalamazoo based car forum. I signed up back in '04 when I used to live in KZOO. Anyway, there's a bunch of local gearheads on that forum and a few BMW guys too. I'm sure you could get several people for the meet.

    kzoorice.com, and also try xceedspeed.com.

    im sure that on xceed, there is already a meet in your area.


    but if it were a BIG meet, i could see people from GR and the west side also meeting up.

    Update: Talked to Water Street Coffee Joint management today, they're on board, (some possible free items / discounts ? ) and we'll be contacting Bell's Brewery (right across the street from Water St. Coffee) early next week. We've got contact numbers for other surrounding lots as well. So, everything should be pretty well nailed down next week.

    Flyers will be finished next week as well, I'll post them all over town (distribute them to local dealerships) I'll also upload a high-res image on here for anyone who would like to print them out and help spread the word. (Kinko's color photocopies are only 49 cents)

    I'll also have an email address setup specifically for this event, so everyone who is for sure coming can pre-register.

    If I recall correctly, Kzoorice was started back in the day to make fun of ricers, not for ricers to gather. Their slogan is "Eat your rice, don't put it on your car." Several members drive some clean cars.
