I've had my bimmer for less than a year so I'm probably considered a newbie also. . . I'll be moving to the Leavenworth & KC area for school/training and all that jazz in July. . . Look forward to meeting you all at some point. . . JT

Alright people, small get together/cruise tomorrow afternoon (Sunday the 18th) at 430pm A few of us will be meeting up there for some photoshoots, we'll probably leave around 530 - 6 so if you make it up there and can't see a bunch of German cars, you probably missed us.

It's also not BMW exclusive, there will be VW's there as well, and hopefully one of these times, a few Audis. There's not a huge enthusiast crowd in KC yet so lumping all the Krautmobiles together makes for a sizeable G2G.

We will be meeting at the parking garage attached to the Dilliards at Zona Rosa, north of the river.

You don't have to RSVP but if you want more info just shoot me an email @ jeff.hammer@gmail.com

Hope to see some of you guys there.

I had too many cancellations, as the trip was very last minute, update on that though, we'll be doing the same thing this Sunday. Figure a week is plenty of time for everyone to get their affairs in order, let anyone and everyone you know about this next meet! I'm trying to make it the biggest/best yet!

Recommendation on Tires

I'm moving to Leavenworth/KC area from Texas and currently have the OEM wheels and tires on my '09 328i sedan. . . I'm currently looking at tires and possibly new wheels also. . .

1. Can I simply buy a set of quality ultra high performance all season tires or do will I definitely need dedicated winter tires in Kansas?

2. If I don't buy any new tires at all, will the OEM all season RFTs survive a Kansas winter?

Thanks and I apologize if this has been asked and answered already. . .

I don't drive my car when it snows, but i would highly recommend putting dedicated snow tires on the stock wheels and picking up a nicer set. Another option is to put nice summer tires on the stock wheels and get a cheaper set with snow tires to run during the winter.

Snows are recommend, I got some from Tirerack for 1100 with wheels w0/tpms are the tires are dunlop 3d snows and I went through a lot of snow.

Then in the summer I run Bridgestone 760sports

The first winter I had my car I had the pirelli a/s and if it snowed more that 2-3 inches I could get around very well....but on the flip side usually the roads are clear in one day so...

7350 NW 87th Terrace
Kansas City, MO 64153

That's the physical address of Dillards, we'll be on the 2nd level of the parking garage located behind the building. We should be there from 430-6ish

On another note, I ordered a PBX this morning and I need someone who knows what the hell they're doing under there to help me out please.

Well we've got some crappy weather here today. I'm still gonna be up at Dilliards if you guys wanna just do a quick meet so we can get familiar with each others cars and shoot the shit a little bit. Doubt we'll do an actual cruise though because of the weather. For those who can't/don't make it, probably be doin' the same thing again next sunday.

I was there from 430-515ish..left because I thought no one would be showing up any later, plus it was cloudy and stuff.

Planning next event for Sunday May 16th @ 4:30p

I'll post details in here once I get everything figured out. Hopefully that is enough in advance that we'll be able to get everybody out together for a ncie big meet.
