I may not be in austin but im close. Up here at fort hood to be exact. We have a group of 5 to 15 meeting every week, also make trips to cars and coffe in dallas, san antonio, austin, and houston from time to time, theres also the mfest representative that lives up here as well.

If any of you guys are interested in autoX'ing we just started a group and a race up here, were running, if all goes well, once a month. Our last was last weekend, i was the only Bmw there to comepete, itd be great to see more of yall.

Theres also a drift event held by the same people on sept 7th and the next autoX is sept 15.

If anyone wants to do any track days, id love to get in on some. they just started racing up here but no track days as of yet.

Being on an army base BMWs come and go every day so theres always some sort of scene up here. Id love to see it grow, especially in the racing/tracking aspect.

Just FYI, there's no longer a Coffee and Rides (Cars and Coffee) in San Antonio - but, there IS a monthly car meet similar to C&C at The Rim Shopping Center (north of 1604 on I-10 at La Cantera Drive) on the 2nd Saturday from 7AM to 10:30AM in front of Lowes (north end of the center). It's adjacent to several restaurants, Lowes has plenty of restroom capacity, and San Antonio PD is on site to make sure nobody gets out of line and ruins things like they did for Coffee and Rides (the event was asked to leave its North Central shopping center location). It's a long trek from Ft. Hood, but a good meet - next event is September 14.

Nah, I didn't go. i was pissed that weekend cause My M3 was suppose to be the Cover but my Mechanic jesse had my car and didn't get it ready in time so we called Gus (cause he is ALWAYS READY) and he had the time.

anyway, i understand. we don't have to eat, i live near the walmart in HH...matt, James and the puerto rican guy in the RED 135 & Z3 all live around me off stage coach so we can link anytime i am home.

I don't even think they had an H.E.B. in Copperas Cove when I was stationed at Hood. But then I left there 2 Sept. 1969.

Yes if not artistic and in your budget range North is the nicer here too. Stay west of 35 and closer to Mopac over I35. For $1k and a 1BR there's a ton of choices. You could live at the Domain at that range which is a nice shopping & dining area -- really depends what your commute would look like, what you like to do in your time off, etc. to give any more precise guidance.
