M-Car Day 2010: August 22 - Sunday

Hey everyone, lets set the pre-meet at the Starbucks like last year. Which is right next to the South Center Mall (next to Target and Olive Garden). Its the one right next to the Barnes & Notble Book store and Office Depot. Here is the address, 300 Andover Park West, Tukwila, WA 98188. Since we have to get there before 11AM, so lets do the pre-meet at 9:50AM and leave at 10:20AM.

So here comes again for such a fun and exciting day for all the WA M owners. For those who came to the last year's M-car Day, you all know how exciting this would be. For those who doesnt own a M car, you are still more than welcome to join us as well.

M-Car Day
Sunday, August 22
Griot’s Garage, Tacoma

Last year’s M-Car Day was a lot of fun, so we’re doing it again! Let’s have a special M-Car Day to celebrate all of the wonderful BMW M Cars that have thrilled us over the years. Please mark Sunday, August 22 for a very special day of camaraderie to celebrate all things rated M. Our hosts will be Griot’s Garage at their new facility in Tacoma near the Tacoma Mall with additional support from Haury’s Lake City Collision.

Griot’s Garage are picking up the tab for lunch, which will be a great barbeque lunch! Yes - lunch will be FREE to each M-Car owner in attendance and one of their guests! In order to qualify for the free lunch, we need an RSVP from you no later than Tuesday, August 17. Your RSVP will allow us to provide the BBQ caterer an accurate number of meals to prepare. Additional lunches may be purchased by those that do not RSVP by the deadline.

When RSVP’ing, please provide me with your name, year and type of M Car, number of guests, and your city. You can RSVP to me at:

We’ll park the M-cars by E chassis type, so owners can compare notes on common maintenance issues and modifications. We’ll also have a section for regular chassis that have had M Power engine transplants. Please plan to roll in between 10:30am – 11:00am. The BBQ lunch will be served around noon time. Later at 1:30pm we’ll have some special presentations and a raffle for some great prizes.

During the day, Griots Garage will open their facility for special tech sessions on the care and feeding of your M-car. Also, Jeff Butler, owner of Haury’s Lake City Collision, will have their Ultimate Loaner Car 2008 M3 on hand for you to take for a test drive around the neighborhood.

Griot’s Garage will provide a free Car Care Product sample to all those attending plus there will be special discounts in their on-site store. Don’t miss this fun and informative day for M-Cars!

Club members without an M Car are also welcome to attend the event to enjoy the day. There will be additional parking for non-M BMWs.

This event is free to attend, but for planning purposes, please RSVP by E-mail to me.
