I know a few people who live around the area-ish, so when I get back to the UK next week I could maybe ring around and see if anyone can suggest a decent place to eat around Donnington. Good to hear that there are a few more people showing interest. Hope we can all make it as it sounds like it will be a good crowd! May bring a couple of people along too, though I dont think I can add anything to video/photo production as my sony digital camera isnt anything special, so maybe I will just bring an E90!!!

Having your car & yourself will do I reckon FD!
Having a nice e90 convoy moving from Donington will be excellent!

I am sure I have seen a few more people post in other threads who are not on the list and are not too far away. They may have missed this thread since it is not in not in the UK forum and I thought it might be worth mentioning to anyone we see in other threads to see if we cant get a few more people along! When I get a chance I will have a look at some of my subscribed threads and see if I cant get any more people interested.

I've PMd around 30 UK members already FD & have inserted a link to this thread in just about every post I've made in the last couple of weeks. The UK forum does have a link to this thread, but as a few members have said, most just look in the general forum section first & not in the UK area.

I shall still keep advertising the meet, as I hope everyone else will.

Yep, still coming. Lets hope that weather improves in the next few weeks. The great news is I have finally got my car, and so far it has lived up to what I expected . Keep finding excuses to go places.

One photo attached. Sorry about the quality, but my camera is pretty average and had to re-size it using microsoft photo editor, which is rubbish, but you will get the idea. Anyway, they always look better in the flesh!

Excellent car Craig!
You are going to love it over the next few weeks.
All our cars are going to look damn smart next to each other at Donington. Can't wait.
The Americans really are going to drool over our clear indicators!

I'm happy to bring some Autoglym stuff along to the meet, to clean the cars up a bit before any photos/videoing.
Anyone fancy bringing any of their stuff along???

I saw another thread where someone brought some paper e90 covers to go over the number plates, to stop the need to edit any photos- will have to think of doing it for us I think.

Funny enough on one of my little shopping trips today i managed to buy a whole load of Autoglym stuff. Will bring along anything that will be of use on the day. Now I just need to find somewhere to clean the damn thing, and a nice sunny day to go with it (and maybe some girls in bikinis to help).

I wonder if Donington Park could supply the girls in bikinis??
At that time of the year, we're more likely to encounter a few OAPs in raincoats! :mad:

The Donington calendar doesn't show anything particular happening on April 22nd, but there's some beauty show from the 23-24th.

I've got a spare bottle of the Autoglym Extra Gloss Protection & quite a bit of the Bodywork Shampoo conditioner. Need to get hold of some more Super Resin Polish.

Got some of that. Sounds like it is going to end up being a mobile car wash!

I might give Donington a ring & see if they could let us use some of their facilities- a few buckets of water would do!
A few of their track girls could go down well too. No pun intended!

A sunny day would be top, but all I expect is April showers!
The beading from a pride of freshly polished e90s in the rain could still make for some great shots.

No matter- the cars & the company should keep us going!

I'd quite fancy a drive over to somewhere for some nice food & drink, after meeting up at Donington, SAS.
I think Craig (Flyingdwarf) is going to try & find out about that, but if anyone else knows the area then that would help.

Any other ideas?
