Yeah, count me in. I'm in Surrey but will travel.

Guess it should be somewhere central depending on where everyone lives.

Yes, somewhere in Central England would be fair.

Let's see if we can get a few more to join then narrow down dates and locations

Come on you UK E90's - where are you? Come and join the first UK meet!

Central good for me - I'm in Yorkshire - I suggested this a while ago on the UK forum but it never got off the ground!

Hi - sorry, not ignoring this thread, or you guys....its just that I think it unlikely that I will make it........find it hard enough to get along to a monthly Pistonheads meet that is only 15 minutes from home!!!!

So me, carl_d, jhbodle and webcoll are in the South/South East and vivekk and 1stnewcar are in Yorkshire.

The halfway point is probably somewhere off the M1, maybe near Leicester.

Its going to be a fair drive for everyone. What's the general consensus?

Hi! I'd come along to this but don't have an E90 yet! Had a 72-hour demonstrator at the weekend and am trying to find a lease 320d M Sport Touring in Le Mans blue that is available with a december delivery. Currently the dealers are quoting January which of course means +3% in tax. I could go for an SE but want the Le Mans blue, alcantara seats and M wheel too much.

Cheers, Jon

Hi Jon, you would be more than welcome of course!

But don't worry if you can't make the first meet, I'm sure if the first one works out, there will be others......

Count me in.

I live in Leicestershire so that's perfect. When i had my Golf Anniversary model we used to have meetings at Donnington Park circuit. There is a cafe there where you can grab a snack and a hot drink etc.

It's off J24a of the M1 if it's any use.

Cheers,

Steve.

Just a suggestion, how about Rockingham as it has links with BMW?

Rockingham would be great, but Donnington is also a good choice. What does everybody think? Would the Yorkshire boys be prepared to meet at Rockingham?

How about we suggest a date too? How about Saturday 12th November at 2:00pm?
