I think you're making it a stretch for everyone by moving it to Solvang.

i think the Petersen Museum is a great idea. They host enthusiast meets there quite often actually. The events board or administration might actual sanction something like this very willfully. I've gone to multiple events there in 2018 alone.

It might make sense to offer up a nice Angela's Crest drive the early morning of/following day + lunch after the Petersen event...

Hey guys,

The issue with keeping it in Los Angeles is that it really does exclude the Norcal guys. Having it somewhat half way brings out the driving enjoyment that frankly I feel Bimmerfest has missed out on since moving from Santa Barbra to Los Angeles.

I know that moving it slightly father away from LA means some of you here wont make it, but since this is trying to encompass ALL E46 M3 owners, sacrifices in distance must be made.

For what its worth, the drive from LA/SD to Solvang is a beautiful one. Nothing personal, but I'd have a hard time understanding why someone wouldn't want to take a drive with a caravan of other E46 M3 owners up there!

I maybe getting older, but I still think some of my most enjoyable experiences in BMW ownership have been on drives, whether it was the old Mfest caravan, or the 100+ BMW's driving from LA to SB for Bimmerfest Santa Barbra... Even the old Cars and Coffee Crystal cove had some fairly exciting drives!

Thanks for working on this Chasen. You know where I am so I'm fine with anything north of LA, but I would be willing to go anywhere from SB to SD, especially with a few months' notice now.

I thought any of your previous suggestions were great considering what you said in your original post - which was to make it socal based.

Good plan. Solvang is a great photo-op for our Bavarian machines!

As a Northern Californian, I agree and appreciate this effort. Anything to help the 8 hour drive shorter helps out
