The first Red stripe represented Texaco, the famous American oil retail brand, who had partnered with BMW during the early days of M racing. Blue represented BMW and Bavarian region. The purple was used to represent the partnership and to allow for a nice transition between the two colors, blending as some may call it.

I RSVP'd for this and received a confirmation within about 30 min., guess there is still plenty of room. Think they'll let us test drive the M5?

Make sure you actually get an RSVP confirm first if you haven't already; you'll need one.

Apparently there's also an exotic car meet at Abuelos that day as well if the M Owners day gets boring.

I did a write-up here: http://f10.m5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=687155. Didn't include pics because pics of the cars are already everywhere, but a few other people have added some to that thread.
