Default Moving to Vail, CO...need some help from the locals!

Thought I'd stop in and say hi and get some advice from the locals.

Moving from the DC/Northern VA area to Vail, CO in two months for a 2yr stint. Just want to get a feel for tracks in the area and, of course, reputable shops that people trust for servicing their M3s

Thanks in advance guys

chris

For Shops check out SCR Performance and Bimmerhaus. For tracks we have Highplains Race track which is pretty fun. We also have one down south but its way to far for me o drive.

Also if you want to talk with more local people go onto E90post or bimmerforums thats where everyone hangouts.

Also there is a cars and coffee meet almost every saturday at Park Meadows Mall outside the store call Great Indoors.

I just moved to Denver from Arlington.

Is it just me or does Bimmerforums look a little less refined than M3F?

Cool! Ya I agree with you on Bimmerforums. So all the guys with older BMWS talk on Bimmerforums and everyone with new BMWs talks on E90post and M3post.

There is a cars and coffee every Saturday at the Great Indoors. But I believe the first Saturday of every month the meet is much bigger.
