New York/NJ meets

Why don't i ever see any posts/threads on meets in the NY/NJ & tristate area? Seems to me like west coast M3 owners are a lot more enthusiastic about their cars. I see threads on west coast meets all the time. Kinda sucks... would be cool to meet with a bunch of other M3 owners who share the same interests.

Or maybe its just me?

I'm with ya...posted the same thing a few days ago and no replies lol. Hopefully some more people will see this and maybe we'll get a little interest. Been to a couple big meets in MD but would like something closer and more often.

BTW I would love to see the matte finish in person. I've been debating about doing it as I've seen some vinyl wraps that have come out. I won't be going the plastidip route unless I see a car that convinces me that it can look 99% perfect up close. Sick color!

Hell yea man im keeping my fingers crossed... As for my wrap, thank you i appreciate it! I wouldnt say mine is 99% perfect... but for a DIY i am more than happy with the way it looks. If i had to put a number to it, i'd say its 85-90%... and the imperfections aren't really visible unless you get really close and look hard. Either way, People are so drawn by the color itself, they're not even looking for imperfections. You'll see it for yourself hopefully, if people decided to act on this meet situation...

I think there's an early Sunday meet weekly at Captree State Park on Long Island. Not necessarily M-specific, but probably a nice mix of Porsches, Ferraris, BMWs, etc.

Sheesh im in Yonkers... That's about an hour and 15 min from me. Hoping for something more local where it would be easy for people from all 5 boroughs + NJ to get to. Maybe like manhattan or queens...

The Wednesday Westchester meets will probably start up again soon. Ask George aka DropTopKing. Good location at the Dunkin near Bloomies in White Plains.

There is a Xoutpost BMW meet at Liberty State Park next Sunday. There will be a good variety of BMWs, inc ///Ms and MINIs.

Dope i'll reach out to him. I've actually heard about that westchester one from my mechanic who lives in rockland. But he didn't seem sure about when the meets were.

What time is the meet a LSP next sunday? thats in Jersey City correct?

We did a Bear Mountain run a month or so ago, pretty good turn out. I agree, not a lot of meets here in the East Coast...

The real problem with meets and I think we all get carried away and go balls out. At least from my experience that happen during our Bear Mountain run. I'd rather do the casual drive through photo ops etc...

I hear that... Yeah maybe i'll get one rolling on here... Lets see how many more people reply to this thread by the end of the week and maybe we'll coordinate something for like a saturday evening where people are typically free. I saw a buncha sick cars driving up 6th ave in the city a few weeks back on a saturday night... a few M's in the pack. I had inquired about it on here and someone gave me a lead but they never replied to me with additional info on that.

Anyway i'll make sure i keep bumping this thread and see what happens...

Oh yeah? Thats what happens when a buncha ///M fanboys (which we all are deep down inside lol) gather up huh? lol I remember like 8-9 years back, that used to happen up here in westchester also (non brand-specific). Dudes used to race their cars up and down the Ave and cops would show up all the time. I stopped going cuz i didn't want to get more tickets than i was already getting at the time... Maybe we can forewarn people not to act a fool lol...

I like the idea of doing weekend meets, as people don't tend to be as busy with work and such... as i stated above im going to see how many people reply on this thread within the next few days and maybe try and get a meet rolling for like a saturday evening in the city somewhere so its convenient for everyone. Or maybe right over into NJ where parking will most likely be more convenient for a crowd of cars... we'll feel it out and see what happens...
