Bavarian Autosport Show and Shine 10/6

I know I will be attending this show. Will anyone else be coming for it?

I am going. The Bavauto lot is often full and closed by about 9 am. By late morning, both sides of the street will be parked bumper to bumper for a 1/4 mile or more on either side of the driveway.

Here is what I know from past events there:
The parking lot is scheduled to open at 8 am. Only BMWs and MINIs will be allowed. The maximum capacity is 300 cars but with good weather expected, they will easily need to turn-away folks hence folks getting there at 6am to get in line.

Just an advisory, if you plan to stay for just a couple of hours, they recommend using the spectator parking, as it can be difficult to exit once the show begins.

Most hotels in the area are fully booked so I will likely go but not try and get into the show and park in the street. I don't want to get up at 4am to get in line!

The lack of available hotel rooms is not solely due to this event. I believe parents weekend is that weekend for some local colleges too.
