BMW M-Car Day 2013 (Sunday, September 8, 2013)

So several of us from the local E90post and M3post will be meeting up at the parking garage near the Cheesecake Factory before rolling out to Griots Garage. We will leave by 10am. So far, we have about 17 cars.

Pre-Meet time: 9:45 AM
Leave: 10AM
Address: 2800 Southcenter Mall, Seattle, Washington 98188




Some of the pics that I took from last year. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=733989

Last year’s M-Car Day was a lot of fun, so we’re doing it again! Please mark Sunday, September 8 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. Last year saw 195 M Cars in attendance! This will be the 7th Annual M-Car Day to celebrate all of the wonderful BMW M Cars that have thrilled us over the years.

This event is FREE to attend!

For planning we ask that you RSVP and include this information about yourself:

Name,
Year and type of M Car,
Number of guests,
City.

Please plan to roll in between 10:30 AM – 11:00 AM so we can direct you to the appropriate section to park your M car. 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. So S52 E30s and S14 2002s are welcome!

Here is a rough agenda for the day:

Griot’s Garage will provide each M Car owner in attendance with a free Car Care Product sample at registration. There will also be discounts in the store, so bring your shopping list.
Around 11:00 AM a Griot’s Garage car care specialist will pick a lucky car from the attendees for a car care demo in their garage.
We’ll have a couple of tasty food trucks on site for lunch. Bring cash and your appetite, yum!
After lunch, we’ll have the always popular raffle for some great prizes!

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. The event will run until about 2:00 PM.

Please RSVP by E-mail to Lance at:

Thanks for rallying the troops Johnny. Should be an awesome event again this year with cool cars, raffle items, couple of nice food vendors.

And word on the street is that they're going to be a super cool tee-shirt made for the event this year.

Doesn't the RSVP help with assigning parking?

No. Cars are arranged by chassis code. However, it's first come first serve for parking spot allocation.

Thank you for the clarification. What time would you advise to arrive in that case?

I'm sad that I can't make that drive. I've done the North Cascade Loop, and taken some nice photos up there - some great driving roads, too, but alas I already have plans.

For the first time, we'll have a special tee-shirt for M Car Day 2013.

Cost is $15 (cash preferred) and the shirts will be for sale during the event. We only have a limited number of shirts and it'll be first come, first serve. Come in early and pick one up!

And to whet your appetite, here's the shirt!

Guys, this is shaping up to be a big one. A lot of RSVPs and weather forecast is ideal. Looking forward to it!
