Now that the weather is considerably improved we should have a meet up, and this time I hope to attend.

I have a couple of suggested locations:

-> we meet at a Chapters / Starbucks, (because the coffee is better) and they have huge parking lots

a) Silvercity Gloucester
b) Ikea

I think I have about $30 on my Starbucks card so the first $30 of coffee is on me.

Any time after 19:30 is much easier for me as the little one is in bed by then.

Any preferred days in the next week?

Cool

Silvercity Gloucester is better.
There is a major construction around the Ikea area. Dust, industrial fall-out, you name it....
Just set the date then I shall be there.

I just had some time freed up tomorrow morning at 10:00.

Anyone who can make it to Silvecity Gloucester Starbucks at 10:00 tomorrow morning (Saturday 4th) the previous offer still stands.

List your name if you think you can make it:

I only have a window of 09:30 - 13:00.

If no one else can make it that's cool.
I'll revert to the previous evening plan in the week.

Sorry.

I've been running a JB3 the past couple of years, and have a JB4 waiting to go in once I have a chance... probably not until August at this rate.

Why do you ask?

I would like to attend but would need to know at least couple of days in advance. Unfortunately, I won't be able to come tomorrow. We should have invitation 'sit' for some time so more people can read it. I am looking forward to next meet-up.

As much room as you can make? haha. I don't know. Would really be different for every car/situation. Certainly a few grand.
You'll want to see the print-out for the car that has the complete service history on it (it's stored electronically on the key, so a complete record is easily available for any dealer to print for you).

Someone more knowledgeable than myself care to chime in on CPO/used car buying?

OK, I'll post a suggested meet further out. I'm not great at committing to dates more than a week out however.

Anyone else, let me know if you want to meet Saturday at 10. Otherwise I'll just chill with a cappuccino, and as Jeremy Clarkson rightly points out "M3 drivers have no friends".

Night all.

I've marked my calendar, but will have difficulty attending. Fingers crossed.

Anyone going to the BMW Car Club Ottawa meet this evening?
Apparently the formal meet is 19:00 - 20:00, then some general hanging out etc...

I might swing by.

This is the note on their forum:
"Meetings take place at the Cottage and Kitchen restaurant at 163 Parkdale Avenue. Parking is free in the large parking lot across the street (Stats Canada government parking lot)."

I went along for part of the BMW CC Ottawa monthly meeting last night.
There was only one other E9X there (323i E90). Plenty of friendly people, mostly in E36 BMW's. There was also a Z4 3.0si and a Z4 M.

One guy showed up in an S5 Cab with the 3.0T that was looking pretty sharp in Black with the top down.

Hopefully we can have an E90Post meet some time again. The long evenings of day light and complete absence of hockey games should free up time for some on here.

I bumped in to a young man at Starbucks this morning driving a very clean Black E92 335i. Very nice.

Hi

Anyone knows any Canadian places where to get rims at a reasonable price.

What is your opinion of the Forgestar F14 in 18" 8.5 front and 10 rear?

For Canadian Places to get rims at "reasonable prices" (depends what you term as reasonable) try this place in Montreal.

Rims look just fine. It seems you plan to have 245 at front and 275 at rear. This might be just at the edge for 335d. I have found that this particular rim has load rating of 1200 lb which is, kind of, borderline for any serious load. You'll be fine as long as you keep your driving off track. I, personally, like car ID for any rim purchase: http://www.carid.com/bmw-accessories...FcK8KgodrnOGvw

Good luck.
