Yo, you should drive down 61, and over to Madison, to pickup Wisconsin folks, and then we'll all head to Chicago. We can all party it up with some Chicago peeps before returning.

Ohhh... That would be a great drive.
Unfortunately through Wisconsin (with their speeding policies) but a great trip and I'm sure a great party.
I'll have to plan something for spring if others are interested... Someone post if you want to get an e90 road trip together.

Any ideas for this fall? Maybe a drive down Wisconsin 35 from the Prescott area?

Just want to give this thread a bump as I await the delivery of my e93, probably April 20th.

Summer's coming and I'd like to plan that roadtrip we've all talked about...
Late June?
Anyone want to help coordinate the route?

anyone know if there are any meets planned in the near future. Our area hardly ever does anything, and I've never been to a meet and thought it would be fun to go sometime. So lets bump this thread up!

As soon as the frickin snow melts i'll set something up, otherwise if anyone wants to get together before may let me know. I'd like to see/hear about local people's experiences with mods (i.e. chips, Radars/Shifters, etc).

I live up by St. cloud and have 19's for summer. I use 17's in the winter with winter tires and 19 CSL Reps in summer with GY F1 tires. Obviously it's a but rougher than with my winter tires on, but the GY's in 19 are comparable to your 17" run flats. So it's not too bad. And they look bad ass too! Post picks when you get em on!!

Lets set up a meet in JUNE. Maybe in over by Calhoun and go from there. Or we could always go to the Midway area.
It would be great to get people together with similar tastes in cars.
