We're around, that's for sure. Quite a few M3s around. Watch this space and on other forums for ad hoc meets. Be sure to follow the RMC chapter of BMWCCA for their track weekends and the pretty Spring Drive. And if the track has appeal, there are the open track days at HPR where quite often someone works to gather a Bimmer contingent.

What part of town do you live in? There are getting to be more and more M3s around town. Last fall we had a pretty good meet up and drive. Here are some picts from that..

Also, I am really active on the E90 post side too. The 335 guys get together and do a lot of stuff as well when the weather is nice. The next big thing that I know of is probably MFest in Vegas at the end of April. We always have about 10 cars that caravan out there for that. Nothing like 10 bimmers all in a line doing 100mph through the canyons!

Cool Tracking

As far as I'm concerned, anyone with an M3 is required to go for at least one track weekend, just to see what the car can do unleashed. Some handy links:

NASA (open to all car types, run excellent HPDEs (high performance driver's ed), very nice people http://www.nasarockymountain.com/nas...ead.php?t=4987

BMWCCA (Bimmer event, run excellent HPDEs (distinction being instructors at all levels)), very nice people http://www.rmcbmwcca.org/content.php?7-Calendar (watch the calendar, they usually do only 2 track events a year). (Also, if you're into autocross, they run one of the best series of events in the area.) (Also, they do a Spring Drive where you can meet a lot of people with Bimmers and drive with caravans through the mountains.)

SCCA (variet of car types, racing emphasis, but "PDX" is their DE), very nice people http://www.coloradoscca.org/ (Their autocross is called "Solo".)

And then there are the open track days at HPR, mentioned above, which as I understand it is like a box of chocolates. dnvrdrvr has been a leader in getting folks out on these non-club days. (I'll be out there this year.)

I found tracking to be a great experience. It is exhilarating to put the machine to the test under relatively controlled conditions. I just traded by 2007 Z4 si for a 2009 M3. I can't wait until its track season to see how the E92 performs on the track.

There's a cars and coffee meet in Lafayette on the first Saturday morning every month, weather allowing. Not just BMWs but a great collection of cars and nice people.

Here's the map. http://g.co/maps/gbwr3

Goes from about 8 to 11 in the morning it think.
