Question Chicago Spring Meetup

It's that time of year again; time to throw the summer tires back on, knock off the salt and get a detail, and go out for a meetup and cruise now that the Chicago weather has finally broken.

It is officially the first Spring for the F8X but I am sure all Chicago car enthusiasts are eager to catch up with old friends or make new ones. So, I am proposing a Spring Meetup in the city. I am hoping for a much larger turn-out now that more people have taken delivery of their car and more are simply willing to take their garage queen out for a spin.

When: Sunday, April 12 @ 10am (The event date has changed from Saturday to Sunday to accommodate more people

Where: Burnham Harbor https://www.google.com/maps/@41.8624...xA!2e0!6m1!1e1

Who: The more the merrier (BMW, MB, Audi, Porsche, GT-R, etc.)

What: A couple hours of socializing and then a lunch in the West Loop for those interested. Afterwards, a cruise.

Looks like there will be ample discussion around coding, clear-bra, opticoating, exhausts, dashcams, and anything else your heart desires

Be aware, we'll probably get kicked out within several minutes. I would recommend changing the venue to Burnham Harbor parking lot (like 0.5 miles south of the planetarium) or something.

Very good observation, during the winter meetup last month there were only 3-4 cars that showed up so we didn't have a problem. However, I could definitely see it get out of hand pretty quickly once we have 6+ cars there.

I will probably end up changing the location once I hear some feedback for alternate locations. Burnham seems like a good choice.

I'll be there, looking forward to it. If anyone is interested, I have the BMWhat BT adapter and app and can do some basic coding for any E9x's there.

According to their site it does: http://www.ivini-apps.com/coding.html - I haven't tried coding the brightness myself though.

Hey guys, I hear what you're saying with the date and all. Unfortunately, I doubt there will be a date that works for everyone. If I begin to hear an overwhelming message that April 11 is not a good date to meet then I would be open to changing. However, after 3 days ~12+ people have already communicated that they are attending. If I keep changing the date, people will not be able to accurately schedule.

Let's see how it plays out and see if another date (i.e. Sunday or later in April) works better for the majority of people. Even if you don't have your M3/4, you should come out! I would also recommend taking half a day off work to attend

On another topic: I have updated the meet location to Burnham Harbor due to the amount of cars attending. It is fairly close to Adler, too.
