Cool

The missus won't come but might bring a mate. All are welcome so whether you come alone or with family, it doesn't matter

It is currently at the BMW UK distribution Centre in Throne, he is hoping to get the car this week, but not sure when.

I have told him if I don't get it by this Friday he will have another unsold M3 on his hands, he laughed. I told I was deadly serious, he stopped laughing......

It has been in the UK since Tuesday 9th, rediculous....

They should be able to get it to you for Friday, Saturday at the latest I would have thought! Mine was taken down from Trone to the dealers on a trailer, arriving on the Friday. I was able to pick it up on the Saturday. Keep hasling them...

As for Sunday, yep, all set and really looking forward to it.

That means I can put my roof down, so long as I wear a cardy...

Mind you, the BBC website is notorious for getting their weather predictions wrong

That's great news! My camera's broken, and so far attempts to borrow one have fallen on deaf ears.

Be great to meet you all in person tomorrow!

Just caught up with this thread. Sounds like you had a great time and those cars look amazing! Please let me know if you decide to have another one. I have some really bad news guys. Last week all my 19" alloy wheels + tyres were stolen! They did it really easily - despite the locking wheel nuts. Finally managed to get a new set but had to make an insurance claim.

Anyway - what's new in the M3 world? Has anyone seen the new iDrive yet?!

Just read this thread, so have missed the meet.

Hopefully I'll keep a closer eye on this forum (spend most of my time on another UK one)...

Cheers
