Your not that far away mate. If you know any good locations for photos nearer you, I'm sure it won't be a problem.

I've driven to the Lake District recently and driving to the Nurburgring this weekend so driving a couple more junctions around the M25 is not a problem

I'll ask my mate Tony (a photographer and 335i owner) of some good photographic locations in the Surrey/Kent area.

Sorry you can't make this one berb... as our cars are virtually identical, we could have got the others to play 'spot the difference'

As Phoenix is in Maidstone, can I suggest another location, somewhere in-between?

How about the Grasshopper Inn on the A25, just outside Westerham? Postcode (TN16 2EU)...

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&hl...,0.023389&z=15

It's an old pub/restuarant and has a very large car-park with good backdrops for photos. There are also loads of good roads and pubs/restaurants in nearby villages,... thinking Pratts Bottom, Badgers Mount,... no seriously, Shoreham village, Biggin Hill, Westerham itself.

Let me know your thoughts.

David.

David,

Good suggestion! The Grasshopper Inn sounds ideal to me and Westerham is beautiful! Played golf there not long ago. Hopefully convenient for Phoenix and the Don too?

So current attendees for Sunday 21st September are:

Booforty
Phoenix 21st
dar2008
DonM3

Should be fun guys!

If Paul can get his photo mate along, then I'm sure they will be outstanding. Looking forward to seeing your tints Phoenix,... haven't tinted mine yet, but am keen to see how it looks.

There was a preference to meet in the afternoon from one member, but a meet time hasn't been discussed in any detail yet. What works best for you?
