As of today we have around 270 members from all over the Europe. We meet on monthly basis (Mar-Oct) and take trips to places that have something to do with BMW like tuners (AC Schnitzer, Hamman, G-Power, etc) or the Ring, BMW Welt. Each meet we have about 30-50 M cars (mostly E9X M3) rolling down the autobahn in a convoy. It is a beautiful sight seeing that many Ms rolling down the autobahn. Look us up on FB - ///M Flight drivers.

Not sure, but maybe you could check with some of the dealers here (Tischer, etc). However, it might be a limited item to events like the M Fesitval to celebrate the 40 yrs of M.

Why would the paint be ruined? It is not ruined, it's just bug splashes. Quick spray with water or pressure wash and it is all gone in no time. I dont allow it to sit overnight on my frozen black and there are no signs of it. I had a JzB before and had more problems with the bugs marks since they seemed to eat into the clear coat and had to polish them out. Frozen clear coat is a lot slicker than glossy paint and stuff comes off easier when spraying with water.

Second Question: Is M Fest only once a year. Thank you.
You should be able to order it with a dealer that has done lots of individual orders. Perhaps Ryan Amico could hook you up. This is now one of the individual frozen colors available and it is called Frozen Blue (based off Monte Carlo Blue metallic paint).

M Festival is an annual event running together with 24Hr Race at the Nurburgring. BMW started the M Festival last year (23-26 Jun 2011). This one was the second one. I was lucky enough to attend both, and hope to attend two more at least (have couple of years left in Germany still).

I've asked the Munched dealer where I bought my bmw, but they said they don't have those for sale. I think those were made just for the festival and you could only get them if you attended the event. Maybe they will be for sale soon...who knows?!

I received the same BMW gift pack and only want to really keep a few items like the jacket.

If interested, shoot me a PM and we can work out a deal for my lanyard (or anything else you're interested in). It's nice quality stuff, I'm just not a collector.

Thanks for kind comments. Perhaps you could come next year. We could arrange something for you to come along ///M Flight crew. Awesome experience indeed, but your thread from M Salesman of the Year might got me beat. That looked like tons of fun too....
