Surely there is a M3post Monterey resident that would let us put up a tent on his front yard and use his outhouse?

How much are tickets for the show?

Edit: $225 http://tickets.theconcoursstore.com/tickets.html

Legends of the Autobahn event - Friday, August 16th

There is a pretty good chance that the M4 concept will make an appearance at the Legends of the Autobahn event (free admission) on Friday, August 16th, at Rancho Canada Golf Course in Carmel Valley.

http://www.legendsoftheautobahn.org/

In August 2011, they had a surprise debut of the new M5 at that event.

^^That would be cool, unfortunately I have a BMW event I have to attend on friday so I am not able to leave till saturday morning

***I think what the game plan would be is cruise up early saturday morning to the show. Then head back and stay the night at a hotel 40 miles south of Monterey where its not so crazy. Have dinner, wake up and head back home. Hotel TBD maybe the guys who are thinking of going have some ideas as far as hotels go?

Carmel has some very nice hotels, though i imagine they would be ridiculously overpriced as well.

If you want a more intimate setting, check out Big Sur.

I'm flying out for a few days, will be some of the shows on Friday, Laguna Seca on Saturday and PB on Sunday.

As a Steve Thomas customer it would be cool to meet you somewhere that weekend.

I just heard back from the pebble beach rep and they stated that there is nothing going on saturday but instead the show itself is Sunday the 18th. So if that is the case whoever went with David and I would have to figure out if we are going to drive down saturday afternoon/morning and stay somewhere near monterey (thinking 30 miles outside of town, since every hotel is booked) and then wake up sunday and goto the event and drive home that night. Or we drive down early sunday morning view the event stay sunday night somewhere and come back monday morning?

let me know what you guys think. Also the ticket looks like it will be 275$ each. So I am trying to confirm where the car will be showcased at and when so we dont waste a trip up there and not even see the car. I have a pm into Scott here on the forums and I will also try to ask our BMW rep if he has any insight.

Maybe you guys haven't been to Monterey and Carmel during Historics week. Hotels and such are way overpriced, but people pay it.

We will be at Legends of the Autobahn on Friday, then sponsoring the Festorics event at Laguna Sat-Sun. They will likely bring the 4 series to one of those BMW only events. Legends is an all German car show that is a must see, we will be displaying cars in all the events. Hopefully we will see some of you there. Legends is fairly cheap and you can get in if you find parking. Pretty sure ticket sales stop this July 28 too, so you may want to hurry.

Hope to meet some of you there. We've been going for the last few years and love it.

They did so last year. They brought out some very rare cars to the Legends show.

And I mean one of a kind rare.
One of a kind M8 direct from Munich.
